It's All About Stamping

4th of July Celebration


Hope you’re off to a good start on this holiday weekend.  I have something that will help you celebrate! Over at Our Creative Corner, Sarah Gough has challenged us to come up with a 4th of July project!  Or you can do a Christmas in July project for the challenge!  Either way, it’s an excuse to stamp and create!  I had fun with it but I had a terrible time getting a good photo of it for some reason…  the colors don’t seem right.

Here’s What I Used:
Stamps:  Afterthoughts, Background Basics, Big B-day Candle, Christmas Classics,
Paper:  Brilliant Blue, Whisper White, Real Red DSP,
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, So Saffron, Night of Navy,
Accessories:  Real Red Button, White Satin ribbon, 3 gold star eyelets, Star punch, Stickles, Star Embossing Folder, Crop-a-dile

Have some fun stamping this morning, take the challenge and play along! Be sure to check out the rest of the OCC Design Team has created. if you upload to SCS use the keyword OCCC. If you would like to be considered for the ‘Top Talent’ or ‘Talented Trio’ awards you must have your card/project submitted on the OCC blog post by Friday of next week at 11:50 ET. Good Luck! I can’t wait to see what you create this week!
