Happy 4th of July!!

Today I am sharing a couple of Patriotic cards that the Stamping New England team has designed over the past couple of years.  What a perfect card for the 4th of July!!

4th of July cardSo what is the Stamping New England Design team?  We are 4 very creative Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators that have very different styles.  So each month we each make 3 projects using the same Stampin’ Up! Stamp set and Stampin’ Up! Designer Series paper.   I love to see the 12 very different projects that we make each month.

I use these projects each month for my Stamp ClubStamp Club members that are local to me (in the Boston area), get a class each month learning the techniques used to make the cards and then they receive the instructions for the 12 projects.  If you are not local to me, then you can join the club and receive access to the projects and videos for each month.  You can check out more information on my Stamp Club here.

Here is a display of several Patriotic cards that we made.

Enjoy Your 4th of July!!  I am in Boothbay Maine site seeing with my Sister and Brother-in-law!

This is a card that I made for Stamping New England’s June Patriotic Class.  I love this card and think that it is perfect for the 4th of July cookout!!

The stamp set is By the Tide from the catalog stamped with Real Red ink on Crumb cake card stock.  The image is cut out with the Apothecary Framelits.

The “Your Invited” is stamped with Pacific Point and is from the Sketched Birthday stamp set.  This is also cutout with the Apothecary Framelits.DSC00831w

The background flag is made with scraps of real red and whisper white card stocks.  The banner punch was used to punch out the little banner in the upper right corner.  The star is from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack.

I hope that everyone has a fun and safe 4th of July!  Here in New England, we are supposed to get hit by the tail end of hurricane Arthur Friday evening.
