Cloud Love

It's banner time!
This one is for a baby shower...yay babies!
This cloud paper from American Crafts is so awesome.
I love it!  It's the perfect shade of blue.
I popped some cloud punchies on there as well because you can never have too many clouds.
The plane is from Echo Park's Little Boy line.
It is my favorite EP line.  Evah.  evahhhhhh.
I thought that putting the plane on the right hand side would make it look like it was pulling the banner.

I added some amazing Marachino twine from the Twinery!
L.O.V.E. that stuff and it makes nice action swirlies.
Yay for action swirlies!

Quick tip for sticker back die cuts like the plane.
I keep a small container of baby powder at my work station with a paintbrush in it.
I pop dot the back of the sticker, leaving one backing on the pop dot, then "paint" the exposed sticker part with powder.  That will make sure it doesn't stick to anything.
Go do it.

Products used: Bazzill Kraft and Red Swiss Dot, Subway Thickers from American Crafts, Jute from Canvas Corp., White textured cardstock and Amy Tangerine paper from American Crafts,  Fiskars Cloud punches, Echo Park Die Cut, Maraschino baker's twine from the Twinery.
