Good morning, everyone! Our challenge on Late Night Stampers this week is to create projects using the colors Red, White and Blue! I've got a couple to share with you this morning! Do you recognize these "fireworks"? These are actually flowers on one of the new printed Window Sheets that Stampin' Up! sells (they have been in the Occasions Mini Catalog but also will be in the new Fall and Winter Idea Book and Catalog). The first time I saw these, I immediately thought "fireworks" or "sparklers" and so I've used them to create this Red, White and Blue card today. Using Real Red Craft Ink, I stamped and heat embossed directly on the acetate sheet, using the Celebrate stamp from Celebrate Everything. I didn't know if I could do this or not and half-way expected to have a melted, smushy ball of hot acetate on my desk, but it worked! I wouldn't over-heat though! Underneath the acetate sheet, on a layer of Brilliant Blue, I stamped the little speckles using Itty Bitty Backgrounds. I used White Craft Ink and then pounced on Real Red Stampin' Pastels with a Sponge Daubber. Blow and brush off the excess chalk. I attached the window sheet with SNAIL adhesive across the top and then "hid" the SNAIL with the tied ribbon. I'm pleased with how my fireworks card turned out! How about you?
This next card was actually a project that I had some new stamping friends make in a workshop earlier this week. Again, using Real Red, Brilliant Blue and Whisper White cardstock, we created this card with the small and large Star Punches. Such fun! Stamp Sets are Celebrate Everything and Itty Bitty Backgrounds. I added some additional stars and speckles on the inside of the card (no surprise there, right!).
Well, I hope my projects today will give you some inspiration to create your own Red, White and Blue Cards!
