And for our hop today I have made a few patriotic cards for you....I am VERY patriotic and LOVE getting a chance to celebrate the good ole US of A's birthday!! We were also to use some older Gina K Design sets!
This first card is dedicated to a couple of my family members...one, my brother-in-law Todd Cummings...he has served in the Air Force for over 20 years now...active duty and then Reserves. And also dedicating to a brand spanking new soldier, my great nephew, Corey Brazile...he is now a US Marine! We all are so very proud of Corey! What a decision to make as such a young age....I still think of him as a small boy!! LOL! Ok, enough of my babbling...here is my card:
This card has ALOT going on with it, lol! First, the background was created by using some patriotic papers, layers one by cutting out and laying at different angles. Then i applied Gesso over all of it and then sponged to give an aged look. The Stamp I used is from the set Masculine Tags and was stamped 3 times...cut out using several different areas of the stamp to layer it. I also popped it up and made like a little pocket to create a spot from some tags. Here is a pic of the tags:
and a close up of the 'courageous' charm I added. I also embossed this with gold embossing powder:
And I also made a few quick cards...
I will be sparkly and glittery all week after making this card! haha! Me and glitter...well, thats another story for another day, lol! BUT, I AM trying to get over my fear of it! :D
And one more:
This is the card that got my hands very inky! I used distress inks to stain the red and blue doilies, getting it ALL over me because it didnt try very quick, lol! I had to zap it with my heat gun to dry it good. But this is suppose to look like the buntings or swags that you see around bandstands...at least that was what I was going for, lol!
Ok, ready for more awesome eye candy!?? Here ya go! I cant wait to hop myself!!
Come hop along for some Patriotic inspiration to help kick off your Fourth Of July festivities!!!
Thanks sooo much for stopping by today and joining in our celebrating the birthday of our country! Even if you arent from the USA, hug a soldier today!! Tell them how much you appreciate them!! :D
