Hi everyone! If you celebrated Independence Day like me and my family I hope you had a great time. Mine was spent lounging in the pool or on the lounge chair reading with a little eating on the side. 😎 I want to share a 4th of July card I created for Momenta.
I started by cutting and folding a piece of cardstock (retired Momenta 12″x12″ Basic Paper Pad Collection) 5 1/2″x4 1/4″ to create the base for the card. I selected a piece of blue cardstock from the Gemstones 8″x8″ Paper Pad and with the Star Confetti Metal Die TemplateI cut out one diecut. I adhered a piece of white cardstock to the back of the diecut before adding Foam Pop Dots and placing on the card base.
I used a 2″ Watercolor Doily but flipped it over on the back since it was white and adhered to the corner of the diecut.
I finished the card by adding sequins, gems and a red twine bow to the card. Be sure to stop by Momenta’s website to see the latest projects! You can find their site HERE. As always if you have any questions about this card please let me know.
I would also like to submit this card for the following challenge:
Hi everyone! I wanted to share a 4th of July card I created for ClearSnap with you all today!
I started by inking an Art Dauber with Peacock Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection and ink over front of the Burlap Creative Card.
I inked the Pledge Allegiance Stamp with Wicked Black Pigment Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of white cardstock. I cut the stamped image to 4″x5″ and roughed up edges of stamped image. Next I inked an art dauber with Chianti Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection and inked the edges of stamped image. I rolled the bottom edge of the stamped image under and adhered, added Foam Pop Dots to back and placed to the corner of card base.
I inked the letter “U” of the USA Wood Stamp with Abyss Pigment Ink and the “SA” with Chianti Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection and stamped onto a piece of white cardstock. I cut a “v” in the end to create a banner and added foam pop dots to back and place on lower half of card base.
From the Thankful Clear Stamps Set I placed on the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked the “BLESS” stamp with Chianti Pigment Ink and the “HEART” stamp with Abyss Pigment Ink and stamp both onto a piece of white cardstock. I cut the “BLESS” image out and inked an art dauber with Chianti Pigment Ink and inked the edges of the “BLESS” image. I cut with a pair of scissors the “T”, “H” and “E” from the “HEART” image out and adhered above the USA banner. I added foam pop dots to back of “BLESS” image and place above the word THE.
I adhered red tulle, thread, star and a sequin with red pearl to USA banner. I adhered a star and red pearl to top of the pledge allegiance image and added three clear glossy dots to bottom corner of card.
And there you have it! What do you do for the 4th of July? Cookout? Spend the day at the beach or just enjoy the day with family and friends? Also always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Hi everyone! I’m back this week with an easy 4th of July project I created using the newest Taos Petal Points Collection and the Mermaid Paintbox Collection by ColorBox. I also used some art screens, a rollagraph and Eileen Hull’s Stacking Drawer Diecut to create this fun little patriotic drawer. Lets get started!
I placed the Stars Art Screen on top of the “sleeve” of the Stacking Drawer Box Diecut and inked an Art Dauber with Peacock Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection and ink over Stars Art Screen. Once I got the area I was stenciling covered I removed the art screen.
Next I placed the Lattice Art Screen on top of the front of the drawer diecut. I inked an art dauber with Chianti Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection. I only inked the front of the “drawer” since that would be the only area seen. Once I completed that I removed the art screen.
I put the sleeve and drawer diecuts together according to directions on the diecut packaging. I cut cording long enough to tie a bow around drawer to keep closed. Next I cut s strip of blue cardstock and adhere around the center of sleeve and adhered red ric rac around blue cardstock.
I inked the glass tray, added water and painted the face image with the following Inks: Mermaid Paintbox Collection: Face-Papaya Cream, Lips, highlight cheeks and side of nose with Berry. Taos Petal Point: Eyes-Turtle and Hair-Amber.
I added a blue cardstock mat to the girl image and added Foam Pop Dots to back and place on top of drawer.
I adhered a piece of red tulle behind girl image and added buttons, stars, sequin and red flat back pearls to the top of drawer.
I also added a cancelled U.S. postage stamp to upper corner of box for some visual fun. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
