Happy Birthday America

It is the Fourth of July and that means the United States of America is celebrating another birthday.  This brings up so many ideas for cards and projects with patriotic themes.

The design team has stepped up this week and given me all kinds of projects to share.

Here is a card that Dee made celebrating America's birthday:

"Happy Birthday America"
Cardstock from Jenny at SBN Memories. Banner Die cut images from WeRmemory Keepers.
Happy Birthday Sentiment from Vintoligie Stamp and Stencil set. "America" is made up of letter dies from
Sizzix-Letters and inked with Tim Holtz Distress inks. The "its party time" sentiment is a vellum sticker.
May everyone take a moment to be thankful for our brave military that keep our country safe so America can continue to have many more Birthdays. Then go party..... God Bless!   Dee

Diane whipped up this red, white and blue card:

She used vellum and printed card stock to create this project.

And here is the card I created:

Card Recipe:
I used my Dreamweaver Embossing Paste for the first time.  I cut a wave using typing paper and used it as a mask.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink is the colors Faded Blue Jeans and Fired Brick to ink the wavy colors.  I used a die set called Elements from Avery Elle to cut the wave on the bottom of the image and the tag sporting the sentiment.  The sentiment is Circle of Honor from Paper Smooches.

I did another card using a die from Spellbinders:

Card Recipe:
The paper is from Authentique.  The hot air balloon is by Spellbinders called In'Spire Up Up and Away.  The sentiment is Scripty Sayings from Paper Smooches.

I hope everyone has a happy Fourth of July.  Remember those who have sacrificed so that we could be a nation.  And then like Dee said - party on.  ;-)

Thank you for stopping by.  Tune in next week for a new theme  -  'people'.
