Let's Celebrate!

Since it's back-to-school time, I'd thought I'd celebrate summer one last time, and pulled out this little Hero Arts silhouette woodblock.  I used a black and white color scheme, and added bright summery colors.

SSS Aug30

supplies: white cardstock, patterned and solid papers from (retired) Simple Stories DIY Boutique, Hero Arts It's a Parade woodblock stamp, banner from Simon's Baby Party Animals, sentiment from Simon's Birthday Bits, Lawn Fawn Stitched Scallop Borders die, Memento Tuxedo Black marker and a ruler to draw pole lines for banner

I added a little banner to the parade of kids, and paper-pieced it from papers in the same set as the stripes and dots.


  1. cute card Lin - love that silhouette stamps and also the one with just the boy and girl - haven't used it ages - maybe will have to do something with it again.

  2. What a darling card, Lin--love the black silhouette with the rainbow of bright colors! Super creative to add the banner! PS--the embossing folder I used is WRMK Bouquet. It's one of the 3D sets & both designs are gorgeous!

  3. Just love how you added the colorful banner, Lin - perfect for your parade!!

  4. Hi Lin,

    this is wonderful, I love the bright colours.


  5. Gorgeous card Lin! The silhouette is adorable and I love the patterns and design xx


Thank you so much for your kind comments - they make my day!
