"Love"ing the Pennant Die

Stampin' Up's Pennant Die isn't new, it has been around for over a year, but it is new to me and I am really loving it!
I made this project to decorate for Valentine's Day and currently it is hanging over our fireplace. You should have seen me trying to figure out how to cut out a full pennant! Once I did some searching on Splitcoaststampers and found out that you need to fold the card stock in half and place the fold along the one end and THEN you would have a full pennant, I was feeling very silly.

Here is a close up of the letter "O" which has uses the new 2 step bird punch from Stampin' Up! I LOVE this punch. It works for so many thing, when you love birds as I do. I have to admit that this is not Stampin' Up! designer paper. Isn't it lovely though?!?! I used Ruby Red card stock, Close to Cocoa card stock and Blush Blossom. The letters are not actually chipboard but they were traced from a retired chipboard alphabet that Stampin' Up! used to sell. I'm so cheap that I don't actually use chipboard, I just use it as a pattern. So, I traced the letters on Ruby Red card stock, cut them out and then covered it with Versa Mark and some clear embossing powder. The ribbon that this is hanging from is the Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon from last year. I snatched up an extra roll of that last year knowing I'd be using it with my Ruby Red projects. So glad I did!
