Stampin Celebration Inspiration - Flying High

Welcome back for the May Stampin' Celebration inspiration sketch challenge.  I am excited for this challenge as I think the colors are nice and bright and happy! 

I happen to be in Japan this week for work, so it was fun learning about the Children's Day tradition!  Something I can discuss with colleagues who just finished celebrating Golden Week,

Anyway, I decided to use the colors and kites in my project.  Instead of finding a kite stamp I decided to make my own kites using the triangle punch from Stamping Up!.  I Punched two triangles and then but each triangle in half.  Then I pieced together the 4 pieces to make each kite.  Pretty simple and they ended up perfectly even on all sides ;0)!

For the flags on the kite I used the banner punch.  Again, it made nearly perfect flags!  I started cutting them by hand until I happened to realize that the shape matched the banner punch.  Much easier to punch each flag than hand cut them!

Have a great day!
