Two Banner Challenges

It feels a little like cheating this week because both Try Stampin' On Tuesday and Sunday Stamps both have weekly challenges that call for banners. Here's the layout for each:

The windsor chair stamp is from a Sizzix Set 659086 that has chairs and dies all in one set. I was lucky enough to find it at Tuesday Morning for a pretty good price. For the banner and sentiment I had to resort to computer-generated images. The font, which I really love for this project is called "Klee." It seems very relaxing.

I chose the paper because I thought it looked like old-fashioned wallpaper. It's actually dark blue and it's from the Betsy's Couture Collection from Kaisercraft.

Thanks for stopping by, and thanks to both Try Stampin' On Tuesday and Sunday Stamps for some great inspiration!


  1. Barbie, this is a wonderful card! I love the sentiment and the rocking chair! Some times it is hard to relax and know that God is in control. Thanks for the reminder. So happy you joined us at Sunday Stamps! XX

  2. That is really a great scene you've put together along with the sentiments. And the chair image is perfect! Hard to remember to slow down and relax sometimes. Thanks for joining Sunday Stamps this week.

  3. This is such an awesome card! Perfect reminder of Gods power with a kick of fun! Love it. Thanks so much for joining us at Sunday Stamps!

  4. What a sweet card! Great take on the sketch(es)!

    Thanks for playing along with us at Sunday Stamps!

  5. Barbie, I love your "relax" card! I'm taking your advice this week and have been rocking on "my back porch" looking out over the Smoky Mountains remembering that God is in control! :) Thanks for sharing with us at Try Stampin'-or Not-on Tuesday.
