He is Risen! Stampin' Up's Celebration basics banner with Easter add on


"He is Risen" Celebrate Basics Easter Banner

I knew when I had the idea to do a Stampin' Up St. Patty's banner, that the next on the docket was an Easter banner. As promised, I delivered. And I can't stop smiling!!! What better reason to celebrate in life than the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Can I get an amen?  Want to make this banner? Gather 6-10 of your friends and I'll bring the supplies to a prepaid class in your home or my craft room.

The Celebration basics banner kit comes with 15 banner pieces, which means that after you make your "celebrate", you have 6 more to play with. One kit = 3 banners = FANTASTIC!!!  (actually 4, I still have 2 banner pieces left...hmm. I'm thinking "Celebrate Spring".) Stay tuned....

Easter Banner overlay:
Cut 2 soft sky pieces in shape of banner piece, cut strips of garden green at 1 in 1 1/4" and 1 3/4". Cut wavy lines in each garden green layer, then cut two narrowest pieces with fringe scissors to make grass. The widest strip goes in back (do not use fringe scissors on it). Tape soft sky onto banner, then layer garden green pieces together. Stamp hardwood stamp set onto crumb cake paper x3 with baked brown sugar ink. Cut 1 inch wide strips to make the cross.  Tuck into grass and adhere to banner.  Cut out "He Is Risen" with alphabet bigz die and Bigshot.  Glue these to the soft sky area on banner piece. Punch out a few flowers from designer paper in calypso coral and crisp cantaloupe, adhere pearl to center of flower and use glue dots to attach in the grass.  For right side - banner piece with cross, use bird punch to punch garden green vines and arrange to look like they are growing out of the grass onto the cross.  Cut more flowers, adhere pearls to flowers and attach at the base of the leaves of bird punch branch, wrapping "vines" around cross.  Punch butterfly from calypso coral and cantaloupe designer paper (in add on kit) and adhere to each other with glue dots and embellish with pearls.  Adhere to banner.  For "egg" pieces, cut soft sky, calypso coral card stock and crisp cantaloupe and calypso coral designer paper (from add on kit) eggs with large oval punch.  Run eggs from solid paper through either polka dot or lattice embossing folder. Make grass with fringe scissors and tuck eggs inside, then attach butterfly punched and layered as on banner pieces. Clip to banner with gold mini clothespins.  This makes it easy to change out. Only take off two end pieces and your clip on pieces and you're ready for the next banner!
