This week we're celebrating our country at The Cuttlebug Spot. I was trying to make a sort of rustic looking flag using white core paper and sanding the Distressed Stripes embossing and framing a large star (embossed by running chipboard through the Cuttlebug under a plumber's gasket ) using my Nesties. I thought the frame was a perfect place for Tilda to perch holding her toothpick flags.
This adorable Patch Tilda image is from Simon Says Stamp, a previous sponsor for The Cuttlebug Spot. They have just TONS of adorable Magnolia stamps as well as all sorts of other scrapping goodies so be sure to check them out. I really enjoy coloring these images with my Copics but of course am too new to it to remember to photograph the colors I used.
The patriotic sentiment is from the 4th of July printable stamp set 1 available at The Cutting Cafe. These downloadable stamps are easy to resize for any of your projects and until midnight PST on July 4th if you purchase either of the 4th of July stamp sets you get the coordinating background stamp ABSOLUTELY FREE! No waiting for shipping either, so there's still time to make fabulous goodies for the upcoming holiday.
The papers are from DCWV and Creative imaginations and the dimensional star embellishments from EK Success. The small stars adorning The Cutting Cafe sentiment are from Darice. and of course it wouldn't be MY card unless I used a pop dot or two for dimension. My fabulously creative Design Team sisters have outdone themselves this week so be sure to stop by The Cuttlebug Spot and see their work. And if you're feeling patriotic, please come and play along. Happy 4th!
