Bless the USA Card

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.

Robin’s Nest: Stars and Stripes Forever Altered Can

Hi everyone!  
Are you loving Summer as much as I am??? I kinda go into hibernation in the Winter months but once it warms up I’m outside enjoying cookouts and time by/in the pool. Well 4th of July is almost here and I would to share a quick and simple project I created as a table decoration for the 4th. But first, before I forget, I would like to share with you that over at the Robin’s Nest store they have the Diamond Shaped Dew Drops on sale this month for 20% off. There is so many things you can use these little dew drops on…embellish layouts, make flowers, etc.  Also we have teamed up with Timeless Twine too. What a great combination huh?!?!?! 

My supplies list of what I used is below: 

Vanilla Glitter Fluer Cardstock
Red Glitter Sorbet Cardstock 
Blue Glitter Crackle Cardstock
Diamond Shaped Dew Drops
Glitter Blue Alpha Letter Stickers
White Alpha Sticker Letter
Jean Cardstock
Firecracker Aqua Blue and Cherry Red Timeless Twine
Button
Lace
Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations On the Edge Iron Gate Diecut 
Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Ovals Large
The Paper Studio Script Embossing Folder


Well first off you need an empty and clean can. I used a pull top can so I wouldn’t have any sharp edges on the inside because if there is a will or way I will cut myself…lol 🙂

Next I Gesso the bottom and top edge of the can. No need to do the center because you will cover that with cardstock. Once the Gesso is dry I used Folk Art Tapioca Acrylic Paint to go over what I just Gessoed. Let dry. Now cut Vanilla Glitter Fluer cardstock to fit can. Once you have done that use Mod Podge to adhere to can.

Cut a 2″ strip of Jean cardstock and cut from the iron gate diecut a piece long enough to go around the can. Next adhere to can along with lace and a 1/4″ strip of Jean cardstock to can.

Cut from Red Glitter Sobert cardstock using the largest Classic Scalloped Oval. Next emboss with the Script Embossing Folder. Cut from the Jean cardstock using the next size under the largest Classic Scalloped Oval. Now center and adhere to the front of the can along with a patriotic image of your choice.

Next make a bow with the Firecracker Aqua Blue and Cherry Red Timeless Twine. Adhere a button to the top of the bow and then shape.


Adhere to the side of the can. Next cut a strip of Firecracker Aqua Blue and Cherry Red Timeless Twine and glue one end of under the bow and the other end tie a small bow and adhere to the other side of the can.

The banners slightly fold the end and cut a small “v” out of each and adhere to the top of the twine. Next add U.S.A. to each of the banners.

Lastly add Diamond Dew Drops to the Iron Gate diecut and you are finished.

Now you have a quick decoration for the 4th of July. You can add a candle, silverware or anything your heart desires.
