Independence Day!!

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a wonderful first week of June!! Wow, how is that possible?? It's my turn to post on the Craftin Desert Divas blog and I'm sharing a project with you using the new Celebrate Freedom stamp set from the May release.


I haven't made a shaker card since November 2011 (HERE), but after seeing so many gorgeous ones lately, I decided to make one for my stars and stripes card :) The star was cut with a Spellbinders Star die. The papers are from Bo Bunny's Anthem stack. The star was filled with iridescent sequins and stars punched with vellum. I used a Cuttlebug Stars embossing folder and Distressed Stripes embossing folder to mimic a flag. The edges were distressed with a Zutter DIA.


I used the Independence Day stamp and turned it on it's side. The banner is a Taylored Experssions die. The sentiment was heat embossed with red and blue embossing powders. The stars along the top were punched with cork paper. The gems are Prima Say It In Crystals.


Look at all the fun sentiments and designs on this set!! Perfect for your patriotic cards and projects!! You can purchase the stamps at the Craftin Desert Divas Shop. And we would love to see your projects using any of the stamp sets in our Craftin Desert Divas Gallery.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. DL.Art - May Linky
  2. Little Scrap Pieces - Show Off Saturday
  3. Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
  4. Just B Creative Crazy - May Linky
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a fabulous week :)

Wow, such a great Independence Day card Lisa! I love the distressed edges and of course the embossing...it certainly pops! The star shaker is so fun!! The sequins and fun vellum stars-so cool! I also love the heat embossed sentiments and adorable cork stars! Incredible card my friend!

Hope your weather is holding out for you! It has been pretty nice hear all week. Only in the 70's but that's okay! Arya is LOVING the outdoors and gets so upset when it's time to go in. She is keeping me on my toes in the aftns...I am exhausted when she leaves, yikes! My daughter is out of town for 2 wks for work so I have had Arya a bit longer into earlier in the evenings til her Daddy gets home. So, she is wearing me out lately, lol!
With watching Arya more and spending any spare time working on wedding stuff...the days are flying by!
Have a great day:)
Hugs,
Sherrie K

Hi my fabulous friend....had to stop by again to Thank you for your beautiful words. I did have a wonderful, joyful and peaceful day with my sister, nephew & my other half, William. I had carrot cake, my choice, and my sister made me a dinner, my mom called me and sang her beautiful birthday song and reminisced about the day that she gave birth to me....I always say "the day the lord brought me to this world and gave me to my mom & dad. It was a perfect birthday. ..
Thank you for your beautiful words and your friendship which I treasure...
Have a wonderful day my fabulous friend,
M'
