Default WT290 A Banner Day (09/30/10)

Banners are everywhere these days. Paper, stickers, stamps, chipboard and hand made ones too. I love this fun trend. Inspired by some fun new product, I thought it would make a great challenge for today. Want to play along?

Today's challenge is Ways to Use Banners. Create a card, layout, altered project or whatever else you wish and incorporate a banner in it. Get creative and have some fun with it! I can't wait to see your spin on the trend.

Please remember to put WT290 in your keywords section and post a link back here. We can't wait to see what you've created! Please link only newly uploaded projects to keep the challenge fresh.

My sample: Banner Hi

WT290 Gallery Submissions

Thanks for playing along and enjoy your last day of September!

Happy creating,
Julia

It is a very fun trend, so this should be a very fun challenge! I'll have to wait until later today to play, but I love your card!

Fun challenge, Julia. I needed a card for a male friend and this seemed like a good challenge to craft his card. Thanks!

Love the challenge. Missed the last two weeks. I am new to the challenges as I guess I just didn't pay attention to the side of the home page! Geez! Who knew what I was missing. They certainly make me think and I get cards made. I am in Halloween mode right now so I came up with this one: WT290 Boo banner by angelsparkly - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

My SIL had never noticed these banners all over the ads until I pointed them out on Saturday while shopping. She said "now I'll be seeing them everywhere" so I laughed when I saw them as the challenge theme today.
Thanks for the fun idea Julia, I've been meaning to try these banners.

Okay, I had tons of trouble with my banner. It was in every place possible on my card. Sometimes you just get stuck and have to go with what you have. Masculine cards as hard for me also. Well, here's mine Splitcoaststampers Member Galleries - yo sam - Handmade Cards & Crafts

Default Two for the price of one

I've been wanting to do a banner card for ages - I see so many cute ones in the gallery but find them a bit intimidating.

I made this card last night and I believe it fits WT289 and WT290 as I did a banner (using upside down Christmas tree die cuts) and turned it into a Christmas card.

here's mine:

Christmas Jumpstart by kellybee - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Great challenge - and I'm happy I managed to incorporate two challenges...I know a lot of people do but I never seem to be able to pull it off.

Off to leave some comments on the beautiful cards in this challenge!
