All Design Team Members will be using supplies from all three companies to make their projects so you can see for yourself how lovely these products work together and how dies, stamps and ribbons are the perfect combination!!

Since we are celebrating (and I'm getting ready for a baby shower), I've created a baby banner using the Oh Baby clear stamps from Joy Clair. I paired the stamps with this amazing Rocking Horse die from Die-Versions and some pretty ribbon from DL Art. The dies are so delicate, yet they cut wonderfully and the crinkle ribbon is awesome.
I cut two layers of cardstock and sandwiched pattern paper between them. On the top layer I repeatedly stamped Girl! from the Oh Baby clear stamp set. Once the three layers were assembled, I added a topper and stamped Congratulations! (also from the Oh Baby clear stamp set) on each. I punched holes in the banner and assembled them with White Crinkle ribbon from DL Art.
I die cut the rocking horses from pink cardstock, then lightly inked them before adhering them to the banner. I used Helmar Scrap Dots to give the rocking horses some dimension.
What a perfect combination of products to create an amazing banner.
Thanks for stopping by today.
