Congrats to Joanne, the newest Featured Stamper (FS642) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I was inspired by THIS patriotic card. I kept the Freedom theme & flag,  but I used different stamps, different dies & changed the layout. And this Memorial Day, please take a moment to remember & give thanks to those that gave their lives to ensure our freedom. 

For my card, I stamped the patriotic wave, multiple times (to get good coverage). A Misti is really handy for solid images like this. Since the ink I used isn’t technically for use w/ Copics, I heat set it then carefully colored in the red stripe & fussy cut the top edge. I did the same for the big heart shaped flag image. The cityscape & USA were die cut & I had to link the letters because I ran out of room to stretch them out. The greeting is 2 put together & I used a corner rounder on the rectangle.

Here’s the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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).

On my first card, I used the fabulous Let it Snow set. This was such fun to color! After die cutting it, I added a dk red layer then a layer from the beautiful Christmas paper 2014 collection, then another dk red layer I cut using the largest die from last month’s Flourished Star Pattern die set. I used the gorgeous Peaceful Poinsettia dies to cut the poinsettia from the dk red, Christmas paper and white paper then layered them together. I also added some gold die cut flourishes and leaves from the Fancy Foliage die set. The greeting was stamped with the peony chalk ink and die cut using a circle die. The dk red circle was die cut using the circle from the Recipe Tag die set.The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used. I will mention here, that originally I used a few reds to color the bow…but then decided it was too red to go with paper so I used the blender to remove most of the red and added the pink.

On my second card, I used the new American Hero set to stamp my greeting in two colors and the coordinating Mini Tags die to cut it. I wanted the hole on both ends, so I cut the entire tag, embossed it, then flipped the die around to cut the hole on the other end. I embossed just this area so it would match. I colored 2 white mini brads w/ a dk red Copic to match the fabulous new Patriotic paper. 
Stars & Stripes05152
The largest star from the Sparkling Star dies was used to cut the star out of the striped paper and I backed this layer w/ the navy blue chevron paper. I also used two stars to die cut a white star frame to insert. The eagle was stamped and I used a red Copic to color some of his feathers. He was fussy cut and attached on top of the star cut out. The small stars (from the Home of the Free set) were stamped & die cut with one of the smaller star dies. I added a red, white & blue banner across the top with a fussy cut little flag in the center.
