I’m pretty sure you’re going to LOVE the new designer paper this month, Patriotic Collection, I sure do! I cut strips the width of the widest die from the Pennants set and just partially cut the ends, then placed them atop the layered base with the embossed stars by Darice.
The Mini Tags die set is so versatile with lots of size and shape options, including these ‘dog tags’ which I stamped with some of the sentiments from American Hero, then threaded them on jute and popped them up. The RWB stars are from the Sparkling Stars set.
Although designed as a ‘landscape’ card, it easily works as ‘portrait’ too!
My next sample is also a patriotic one, using one of my favorite older images, Not Forgotten.
Again, I used the beautiful Patriotic Collection, which I might add, works great in other projects as well not just patriotic.
It’s colored with Copics, then sponged with distress inks, Old Paper, Frayed Burlap, and Walnut Stain. For the base DP since it comes 6x6 and I had to cut off some of the sponged edge look, I sponged with Pumice Stone….voila…easy fix!
Here’s another just for fun…
Here, I used the Gilded Gate die in black on cream cardstock. While the black cardstock was still in the die, I took my white gel pen and using the die as a ‘stencil’ added the white. After removing from the die, I took my water brush and ‘smoothed’ out the white, blending it into the cardstock making it not so stark white.
