I hope your week has gone well! Won't be long until Independence Day! It would be great if we could all have an Independence Day from this awful virus, too. But that will probably have to wait a little longer.
For my card today, I stamped the bunting across the top, masked it then stamped the star streamers. That left room for my greeting & a fussy cut & popped up patriotic heart. Instead of my usual stickles, I added a little brush on glue & real glitter to all the stars. Now I remember why I like stickles so much..thanks for reminding me, glitter. Good job 👍🏻 on glittering every thing in my room!
Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
paper: Staples 110# white
ink: Memento love letter, Danube blue
Time to start thinking of our celebration coming up,
our nation's freedom.
My first card features DRS new sentiment stamp
I used a star die from Sizzix and a border from Heartfelt Creations.
I've used one of my favorite sketches for this card and a bunch of pretty
Happy crafting everyone!
Have a great week.
I love this new Silhouette Soldiers
image - it is powerful and so easy to use. For today's card, I swiped some inks in lines on a piece of aluminum foil, misted them with water, and then dipped in my paper. When it was dry, I stamped the soldiers and the Brush Thank-You
I feel like this card would work for people fighting Covid-19 as well. It is a war for sure.
I was really happy to find an opportunity to stamp using a couple of the military seal stamps from DRS Designs. They have seal stamps
for each different branch, which is so cool!
After a bit of fussy cutting, the Coast Guard Seal
fit right inside the Porthole
stamp, and I attached that onto a dry embossed star panel. That was attached to a background stamped with the Interlocking Star Background
, which I wrapped with twine. I completed the card with an Anchor
to match the image on the Coast Guard Seal.
I'm thankful for all of our military families who sacrifice so much for us everyday. To see all of the patriotic stamps, just click here.
Happy Memorial Day! I have a couple of patriotic cards to share with you today. The first one uses the new silhouette soldiers
, which I stamped in Versafine black ink ad=nd embossed with clear EP. Next I stamped the Camo background
image in various shaded of green and brown ink. The panel was die cut and layered onto a kraft card base. The sentiment
was stamped with brown ink onto the same kraft CS, die cut and layered to the left side.
The next card features the new patriotic bunting
image. I stamped it three times onto white CS, colored with Copics and fussy cut. The fence was die cut using a Memory box die. The greeting
was stamped with Versafine Blue ink, heat embossed with clear EP, die cut and layered onto a red die cut banner. The background was created by sponging some green ink onto the bottom of the card and then I stamped the easy grass background
image as well. The sky was sponged with light blue ink using a MFT cloud stencil. I stamped a few birds
for some added interest.
Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by! You can see all the recently released images here
