This week’s blog hop theme is Red/White/Blue on our cards and projects in honor of the USA’s 4th of July holiday this weekend! I pulled out my Stitched Stars and Playful Alphabet Dies to do a little creating!
STITCHED STARS & PLAYFUL ALPHABET DIES
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Real Red cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Pacific Point cardstock.
- The 3-3/4 x 5 layer of Smoky Slate cardstock was embossed with the Dots Embossing Folder along the top portion.
- A 3/4 x 3-3/4 strip of Basic White was stamped with Let’s Celebrate in Pacific Point Ink omitting the word “you” from the stamp in Celebrate Sunflowers.
- The Stitched Stars Dies were used to cut the star swirl from Basic White, the larger star from Real Red and the smaller star from Pacific Point cardstocks. All were assembled on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A small white star from the swirl was also added.
- USA was cut from Pacific Point cardstock with the Playful Alphabet Dies and added to the larger star.
- Two Red Rhinestones were added on the strip next to the greeting for a little bling.
Isn’t that a FUN patriotic card? I love how it turned out! OK, next up on our blog hop is our Create with Connie and Mary website, then on to creative Mary Brown, or head backwards to see Melissa Davies’ fabulous project and see what everyone did with this challenge!
Our popular TECHNIQUES Collection is back with SIX new techniques for cards! We are featuring the upcoming BLESSINGS OF HOME STAMP SET and FLOWERS OF HOME DIES (available for demos to preorder now and customers on January 3) along with the techniques. These flower images are so pretty to color or leave monochromatic for a vintage look! We've also paired the Bundle with the HEART & HOME DESIGNER PAPER on our SIX technique card tutorials. See more details here!
Don't you LOVE a great tree set? We do! In this bundle, use the trees singly or build an entire forest! They aren't just for Christmas cards, this bundle can be used year-around to build a woodsy scene. For our Collection, we've paired Stampin' Up!'s WHIMSICAL TREES STAMP SET and CHRISTMAS TREE DIES with the WHIMSY & WONDER DESIGNER PAPER to create three cards (one a special fold card) and a fabulous 3D project you can't wait to use...just in time for the holidays!
