Hi, guys! Hope you are having a great Fourth of July! My husband and I are staying home this year as it is mid-week and don't feel like running around in this heat. We are going to spend time working on my stamp room and having a barbecue.
I thought I would share a few cards I made for the holiday (yes, I sent a few Fourth of July cards!). This first one was made for our friend Michael. He is a history professor and actually sent us a card and noted that it is the 236th birthday of our great country.
Stamps: Viva Las Vegas Stamps, Papertrey Ink
Paper: Papertrey Ink
Ink: Memento Black
Misc.: Really Reasonable Ribbon, Copic Markers, Felt Star
The next two cards I made for our parents. I used the splatter technique that Tim Holtz showed for his new July 2012 tag. I thought it would be fun to use on these. They mimic fireworks.
Stamps: Stampsmith, Papertrey Ink
Paper: Ranger Gloss White, Papertrey Ink White
Ink: Archival Black (for Lady Liberty), Alcohol Inks, Archival Blue (Sentiments), Stampin' Up Red
Misc: Really Reasonable Ribbon, Tim Holtz Vintage Labels
May each of you have a safe and fun-filled holiday! I hope you will join me in taking a moment from our festivities to give thanks for this great nation and for all those who are currently serving in our military who are sacrificing so much to keep us safe and sound.
