Happy 4th of July!

Hi Everyone,

 are you enjoying your 4ht of July? I hope you do! It has been the coolest ever since I have been here for us - but warm enough to be enjoyable and to go to the pool (which I did after working most of the day....)

I have been staring at the sketch for this week's Paper Smooches Sparks challenge for the entire week - no idea of what to do - until the threat of Mr. Linky closing - that always gets my imagination going....so I did a card in patriotic colors:




I used the stamp set Super and used the matching die. Some Washi tape and that's it.
Here is the sketch:

House of Cards July Challenge

Hello Everyone! 

This post was supposed to go live on July first, but I screwed up. Since I was late anyhow I thought I wait until the STAMPlorations blog hop is over to give House of Cards the attention it deserves!



I used the new party stamps from STAMPlorations to make this card (Party Mates and Party Time). The dots I made with fun foam stamps, using circle dies to cut the foam.

We have a wonderful summery inspiration picture for this current challenge...

I stamped the owl and colored it with water color pencils. Made myself a mask with a post it note and masked it. Took a punch, made another mask and sponged the circle with Distress inks. Cut a strip of patterned paper and glued it onto the card stock. Heat embossed the sentiment and mounted it with foam tape. Added home made enamel dots, that I have stashed away...
