It's All About Stamping

Stars & Stripes for Labor Day


I’m so thrilled to be invited to join the OCC Design Team.  I’m excited and nervous!  They are some really talented ladies and I’m looking forward to learning so much from them! 

The challenge this week at Our Creative Corner is STARS & STRIPES

stars n stripes 0909

I didn’t want to use the typical Red, White, and Blue, but wanted to use fall colors.  I thought of Burgundys and Browns and Gold but this was the closest I had that I found in my stash.  And would you look what I ended up with…..yep, red white and blue!  Ugh!  Oh well!  I do love red white and blue!

Here’s the supplies:
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Thoughts,
Paper: Bravo Burgundy, Whisper White, Treehouse DSP (retired), Buckaroo Blue??think that’s what it was called
Ink: Sahara Sand, Bravo Burgundy,
Accessories: Bravo Burgundy marker, Organza ribbon, Silver brads, 1/4″ Circle punch, Star punch, Large Star punch, Modern Label punch, Word Window punch, Martha Stewart punch, Mat Pack/Paper Piercer, Circle cutter, Scallop Nestabilities, Sponge, Dimensionals, Punches Plus Classy Brass

Head over to Our Creative Corner to see what the other designers came up with! Load your creation to the SCS gallery with the keyword OCCC.

Thanks for stopping by!
