I had this idea in mind when I first saw this week's CAS challenge sketch and finally had time to make it today! I also used the colors for the current Market Street Stamps Color Cue challenge of dusty gray, ruby red, and turquoise.
I thought Eat Cake Graphics Callie would love to help decorate for a party (especially since she's wearing her party hat). I used a Silhouette store download for the banner, cut it out of Echo Park Playground and My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Life of the Party papers, and attached them with the Tim Holtz tiny attacher. I also added a wee bit of foam tape under a couple banners on each string. I stamped Callie out of Sahara Sand, which I also used for the base. Because the stamp had a pattern on the hat already, I stamped it on the back of the patterned paper and cut it out. Ink the edges with a marker, and voila-a hat with no stamped pattern on it! The letters are from a Cosmo Cricket sheet and they are totally not centered on the sticker, so yes I had to trim one side of every sticker because it was annoying me so much and because I'm that type of person.
