The Great Pumpkin Hop, Day 2

Hi everyone!  Welcome to day 2 of the Great Pumpkin Hop! If you arrived here from Theresa, aka The Scrapbooking Queen, you are in the right place!  If you want to start at the beginning to see all the fabulous creations, you can start at Amy's blog, Love to Crop.
For my project for today's post I decided to make another banner.  This was actually my first banner that I intended to make the other day but the way I did it, I was able to get two banners cut out.  Let me show you how.
Lately when I make a banner I make two parts to the actual banner, one for a background and then another sheet on top of that one. The background is essentially the "shadow".  I have then been welding the letters into the front part of the banner.  The causes the background to become the paper for the letters. You can see it here on my gypsy.
The letters are placed right in the banner piece and then I select weld to weld them together so they print out cleanly.  Once you have them printed out you also still have the letter piece which is what I used to create the banner yesterday.  I love doing it this way!
Here is the finished banner.  I also strung this one together using mandarin twine from the Twinery.
 Like my little pumpkin rosettes?  I used my Tim Holtz rosette die to cut them out and then cut out little faces with my Pumpkin carvings cartridge.  For the stems I used the top part of a leaf die I had.

Thanks so much for visiting again today! Your next stop is Brenda at http://createbyburffrau.blogspot.com/

  7. Like your Halloween banner. Banners are so popular. So wanting my Gypsy to be replaced soon. Had to mail it back to ProvoCraft when a security breach code 2 came up on screen and screen went from blue to black. They emailed me a FedEx label so I mailed it back and now I wait.

  9. This is so cute! For a moment I thought I should make my own, then I remembered my 6-month old kitten who might have too much fun demolishing it! Well, maybe next year! :)

  12. What a great way to remind everyone how to effectively use up scraps and get a two-for-one banner!! :) I really liked seeing the "negative" banner effect -- The same, but completely different!! :)

    Thanks so much for participating and sharing your talent in the GREAT PUMPKIN Hop!! :)

  33. Great banner. Love it. I wish I could figure out my Gypsy, I tried over a hour trying to figure out how to weld. No luck. It would be a wonderful crafting tool if dummies like me could figure it out. I have much respect for you since you obviously have mastered it. Great job.
