"I Love U" Mini Banner **Die~Namites & So Suzy Stamps Blog Hop**

 Welcome to the Die-Namites / So Suzy Stamps Design Team 
Blog Hop!!

We are ecstatic that you're here!! Please hop along today and tomorrow (2/19 - 2/20), as we share with you our projects that incorporate beautiful dies with awesome high quality stamps. Each day we'll have new projects featuring talented artist from 2 amazing design teams!

Here is my project and info.  More blog hop info is at the bottom of the post.

I wanted to create a cute mini banner to hang up on my desk for the month of love (February).  In my mind these cute little things do not have to comedown right after Valentine's day, why not celebrate it a bit longer and enjoy the season!!

I cut out the rose leaves die on white cardstock, inked the edges and then drew in the lines with black pen for the veins of the leaves.  On the burlap banner I stamped in black dye ink a swirl pattern stamp called Flourish Border from So Suzy Stamps to add a little something to each of the burlap pieces.

I cut out the Die~Namites Love Stuck die on white cardstock and then misted it with red mist.  After it dried it traced out the heart shape and glued it to the back of the white cardstock to give it a backing.  I used the same process on the Heart Clip Tree Video Tutorial.  I traced the heart shape and cupid with black ink, and then stamped and cut out the Love Arrow stamp from So Suzy and glued it onto the cupid as if he were shooting the love arrow.

On the back of each section of the banner I placed the Deflecto Sign and Banner Hangars and ran the rope thought the holes and then glued them in place.  To hold up the banner I just placed little tacks on the board and rested the banner into place.  Easy to place where ever I want!!

Little mini banners are cute to hang up in your work space, on a wall , or window ledge.  The possibilities are endless, have fun with it and be creative!!
