I wanted to create a simple banner for our front door for Halloween. The goal was to keep it simple as possible as I'm sure how long it will last due to the weather in October! I knew I could create a fun and simple banner in no time using the soon to be released Die-namics and the Distressed Diamonds stamp set.
I used the new Jumbo Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics to create the two layers for the banner. I used Black Licorice card stock for the base, and Orange Fizz for the top layer. I stamped the orange banner pieces with the largest Distressed Diamonds pattern using Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink.
I used the Layered Labels Die-namics as the focus piece for each banner piece. The black label was stamped with the medium pattern from the Distressed Diamonds. The smaller orange piece was stamped with the smallest pattern of Distressed Diamonds. The three different sizes of diamonds work together so well!
I used the fabulous new High-Rise Alphabet Die-namics dies for the letters. I used a piece of patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye Mischievous Collection. I added a few Halloween friends using the Halloween Charms Die-namics and the Spider Wed Die-namics to finish off the banner. A little bit of Charcoal Twine to tie it all together and my banner is ready for Halloween week.
