I Love My Man!!


Join us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments as we bring you some masculine energy.  Let's make some manly stuff for the men in our lives.

I had some wood blocks that I had used for a project a couple years back and this one was calling my name when we decided to do a man project.  What's more manly than using a hammer and nails for a project?!  :)
I made pennants on the nails and hammered them into the 2x4.  Then I wrapped the Navy Striped Ribbon around it (gonna miss this!!) then I added all the rest of the elements.


 Here is a different angle to see the pennants and the nails.


Here is a closer view of the nails.


Here is a close up of the new stamp set called Itty Bitty Banners.
I can't wait to get the matching framelits for it.....I had a hard time making a straight cut.  :)


Ingredients:

Stamps:  Itty Bitty Banners, Family Reunion, Friendly Phrases and Little Letters (retired)
Colors:  Night of Navy, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquiose, Whisper White
Accessories: 1/2", 3/4" Circle punches, Labels Framelits, Clip, Pewter Brads, Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Nails, 2" x4" Wood Block

Happy Stamping and Hammering!  :)

Wow, this is fabulous! The picture with your children is perfectly showcased on your 2 x 4. The nails are a fun touch as the flag poles. This is an A+ project! Smiles, Elizabeth
