Hi Stampers. Hello from soggy Northern California. The weather report last night said that we have had 28 inches of rain since January 1st. That’s 205% of normal!! I know we need the rain, due to the drought we are in, but I’m a little tired of all the flooding and mudslides…. In honor of the mudslide clean up I’m sharing my construction banner today.
This banner was made using the Stampin’ Up! banner framelits. I used the largest banner framelit and Basic Black card stock for the base, then the next size down framelit with Crushed Curry card stock. I also used a torn layer of Soft Suede card stock over the Crushed Curry layer to look like dirt. The letters were cut out of Basic Black card stock using the Large Letters framelit dies. I rested them on top of the “dirt”.
Here is a close up look at one of the letters, so you can get a better look at the torn edge.
This little cement truck was cut using my Silhouette Cameo e-cutter and a design I purchased from the Silhouette Design Store. The different colors were cut out separately and layered on top of each other to complete the truck. (I used Basic Gray, Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Basic Black and Whisper White card stock).
The little clouds were cut out using the Up & Away framelit dies and Whisper White card stock. On the “dirt” and trucks I used some Soft Suede ink on a sponge dauber to rub a little extra “dirt” onto them to make them look “dirty”.
This banner is for sale in my Etsy store online. It would be perfect for a little ones first birthday. It can hang on the wall or across the front of the high chair. Of course if you want to make your own, I have listed the supplies needed below with links to buy them from my Stampin’ Up! store.
