US Navy cu 06600
Today’s CAS Challenge (clean & simple) CAS330, has us using stars &/or stripes. I used both plus anchors for my Patriotic Military card.
US Navy 06601
And this really was quick & easy because almost all of it was made using die cuts I already had sitting around.  I only stamped 3 images, colored 2 and fussy cut the anchor. The little square frame w/ the pierced circle was already there along w/ the little red ring so I added a smaller die cut circle w/ the US Navy emblem stamped in denim. The anchor & USA were lightly colored & added to a bg I embossed w/ a small anchor pattern. The inside has the rest of the USA greeting & says “Home of the Free Thanks to Our Brave”.  The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used (not many).

Heart the Fourth 04003

Happy 4th of July!
Today’s Mix challenge (MIX75) on Splitcoast is to have a repeating item, or a parade of items. Gotcha covered! A row of pennants, a background of stars and a heart full of stars & stripes. And since it’s a MIX challenge, I have distress inks, embossing, embossing resist and some sequins thrown in. 

For my patriotic card, I white embossed both of the stars & stripes hearts, and used distress inks to sponge  over the embossing, then die cut them. The red star was a leftover I cut on my Cricut. The patriotic pennants were die cut and w/ the die still in place, I stamped the stars & stripes pennants. The stamps are clear, so it’s easy to see where to stamp. The large pennant in the corner was also die cut. I used the A2 matting basics dies to cut the frame. The star bg inside the frame was made using the stormy sky ink & embossing folder stamping

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great 4th of July weekend!

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs July Release! You’re going to LOVE the new Pennants and matching dies! So many possibilities and they look terrific with any image or theme.

For my first card, I’m using the fabulous Pennant Swag Alphabet set and matching Pennant Swag dies.

Fucshia Bday Banner 04022 Since these are clear stamps, I don’t think it matters if you stamp first, then die cut or do it in reverse. But I die cut the swag first, left the die in place, and stamped the individual pennants in place. I used these colors because I happened to have these crocus and foxglove images already colored. They weren’t used as previously intended, but I think they fit in perfectly here. The narrow fuchsia colored frames were part of a background I made with Copics and I used it as well. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

Brave Eagle 04009 I combined these fabulous pennants with my favorite eagle image, from Some Gave All and the greeting from Home of the Free. I stamped the images in either the sapphire or barn door ink, die cut and arranged them as seen.
