Patriotic Party Time

>> Wednesday, June 3, 2020

I am feeling a like we may need a little more patriotism, fun, and sparkle these days in America.  Too many depressing things going on.  We need to lift our spirits.

Today's card is made with the new Patriotic Bunting, Star Streamers, and 4th of July Sparkle Greeting.  I made several blue and red ink/spray/smash backgrounds.  Then I stamped the bunting a bunch of times and cut them out.  I cut some of the sections apart and layered the for more depth.  Then I made rosettes by putting them together and using the Made in U.S.A Circle stamp or a punched star. 

Hope you are finding some Sparkle wherever you are and whatever is going on. 




Summer Cards

>> Tuesday, June 2, 2020

Hi Everyone,

We had a good heat spell last week, and since that really put me in a summer time mood, I'm celebrating the upcoming warm season with these two cards.

This underwater scene was inspired by Shelia's card with all of her colorful fish! I stamped, colored and fussy cut a few fish, along with some shells and seaweed for the bottom of the ocean floor.  Speaking of the floor, that was created with some sandy colored glitter flock, and I attached it to a background that was sponged with various blue inks.  Along with the die cut greeting, I added some punched greenery to the ocean floor.

Stamps used are as follows:

This card celebrates my favorite summer holiday, and this year we can all use a little sparkle in our lives, don't you think?

My background was created using the new Star Streamers and the sentiment is the new 
4th of July Sparkle Greeting, which I embellished with a few gems to match the strip of silver glitter.

Wishing you lots of sparkle and sunshine in the months to come!

Have a great day :)


Happy July 4th!

Happy Monday Everyone. Hope you had a wonderful weekend. I have some 4th of July cards to share with you today featuring the new Sparkle greeting, as well as the patriotic bunting and streamers. These new images are fun to work with and have lots of options for use.

I started with the white panel and stamped the streamers along the top of the card, colored them with copics and then added glue to the stars and then sprinkled on some silver glitter. The greeting was stamped with Versafine Black ink, die cut and layered on some blue and red CS. Everything was added to the red card base. The lower left-hand corner looked rather empty so I went through my stash and found these strips of gem stars and thought they'd fill in the space nicely. At least it really does sparkle like the greeting says.

This card uses the same greeting, stamped in blue ink and embossed with a clear iridescent EP, and the bunting image. I created this for a Splitcoast challenge to make a front flap card. You can see the challenge here. For the background I stamped the stars and stripes border in blue. This front fold flap was a fun card to create and I really like the look. I'll definitely be making some more of these.

Thanks for stopping by today. You can see all the new images from DRS Designs here.



Military Men

>> Sunday, May 31, 2020

I can't get enough of this image. This time I used it in Red, White and Blue.

Stamped the image in blue and die cut the layers. Used the Interlocking Star Background and craft white on blue. Stamped the banners and colored with copics and fussy cut to add under the military men.

The military image is popped up on dimensionals.

 Happy Friday!
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 ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป 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!

Sparkling 4th of July!

>> Thursday, May 28, 2020

Good morning!
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.

My next card uses the same sentiment stamp, the Shooting Star and the Patriotic Heart as well.
I've used one of my favorite sketches for this card and a bunch of pretty
glitter paper.

Happy crafting everyone!
Have a great week.


Military/Soldier Thank-You

>> Wednesday, May 27, 2020

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 sentiment.

I feel like this card would work for people fighting Covid-19 as well.  It is a war for sure.
