Bountiful Banners Group Post

Hello and welcome to the fourth day of the Papertrey Ink March countdown and the first Design Team group post. Today's group post is all about showcasing the new Bountiful Banners.  I've already been showcasing this set over the last few days, but for today I as well as the design team have a bunch more to share with you using this new set of mine!
Bountiful Banners is definitely one of those sets that plays well with others. Other stamp sets that is!  Let me show you what I'm talking about.
Each project today was inspired by certain inspiration I found via Pinterest.  The first two by the photo above, which I pinned here.
And here's what came about.  :)
My first pairing Bountiful Banners and Irresistibly Ikat.  The ikat pattern was stamped on a strip of cardstock which I attached to the bottom edge.  Then embellished with a piece of American Crafts brown sugar glitter tape stapled into place.
The arrow was heat embossed in gold and the heart medallion was embellished with a dot of glitter. Here's How: Using my 1/8" hole punch, I punched a dot from a strip of American Crafts brown sugar glitter tape.
Here's a Note:  The unique feature about this arrow (included in the Bountiful Banners set) is that it's not a complete arrow image.  I purposely designed it with a gap in the middle to allow you to stamp directly over any of the 6 medallions circles included in the set.  This allows you to stamp the arrow with out the need to mask off the circle.  Unfortunately it's hard to see in the photo above because it's hidden under the die cut circle medallion. 
Here's a pairing of both my new stamp sets for this month... Birthday Style and Bountiful Banners.  The focus for creating this card was the large ampersand in the inspiration photo above.
I began this card by rolling the edges of the banner in two inks, giving it an ombre look.  This time I used the "HB" medallion to create a fun birthday focal point.  Behind the banner I stamped the confetti a number of times, also in two shades.  I love how it enhances the color change in the banner.
Here's my next inspiration piece, which I pinned here.
And here's what came about. :)
I changed the colors a little bit, but my main focus from the inspiration piece was to create a repeating pattern with one stand out image in a contrasting color.  This stamp pairing... Watercolor Wonder and Bountiful Banners.
I began by stamping the largest watercolor strip across the entire card front.  Here's a Tip: To create a more interesting pattern, I alternated the direction of the strip with each stamping.  Then finished the card off with the anchor medallion and a sentiment (both from Bountiful Banners).
Last but not least... a combo of On The Farm and Bountiful Banners.  I've been crazy for animal motifs these day.  My love for them began with my wardrobe, I own a number of tops featuring lovely animals.  So I'm thrilled to now be incorporating this theme into card form!
Here's a Tip: I began creating this horse pattern by stamping the mint horse first, this allowed me to place it exactly where I wanted it.  Then finished the card off with a banner, medallion, rhinestone and a white heat embossed sentiment.

Well, that's all I've got for you today. Just remember... Bountiful Banners and Birthday Style stamp sets and coordinating product will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning March 15th.
Now, be sure to see what the rest of the Papertrey Ink design team has in store for you today...
Thanks so much for stopping by!
