Stamper’s Dozen Blog Hop – Home of the Brave

Jun 15, 2014 | Uncategorized | 3 comments

 Welcome to the June edition of our blog hop!  Our theme this month is “Home of the Brave”.

We are so blessed to live in the USA – the best country in the world!  I am so thankful to all of the servicemen and women who have given and continue to give so much by serving our country.

I wanted to create a card with an “Americana” feel to it and so I chose Night of Navy, Cherry Cobber, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla for my color palate.  Here are the steps for creating this card:

Card base is Night of Navy and is 4 1/4 inches by 11 inches.

The next layer is from the Regals Designer Series Paper Stack – 4 inches x 5 1/4 inches.  I wanted to soften the white polka dots and did this by sponging lightly over them with crumb cake ink.

My crumb cake banner was easy to create using the Banner Framelits  and my Big Shot.  After cutting it out,  I embossed it with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder.

The stars were easy to create thanks to our new Star Framelits!  Love these!  I used three different sizes – and for the blue star, I used one star to cut the outside shape, and placed a smaller star in the center to cut that shape.

I used the new Be The Star stamp set to stamp on two of the stars.

The “Godspeed” stamp is from a new stamp set called For Your Country.

And to finish up my card, I used glue dots to added a few sequins from the new In Color Sequins and wrapped my banner with some Linen Thread.

Below is a list of all the products used on this card.  By clicking on any of the images, you will be taken to my online store and can order these great products!
