It's the 1st Friday of the month! That means it's time for the Stamp to the MAX blog hop! This month we're featuring patriotic/red,white and blue ideas! We hope you are inspired! You may have arrived here from Norma's blog, you may be a regular reader :), or maybe you just stumbled here by accident! However you found me, I'm glad you're here! I am stop #1 on the hop, and I created a card for you today.
I have no patriotic stamps, so I had to get extra creative with this one. ;) I decided to use the Triple Time stamping technique with a Secret Garden flower as a firework. I think it worked out fabulously!
My layers are Real Red and Naturals White. I stamped the flower and the small six-sided image from Pennant Parade in Night of Navy. I stamped the small star from Pennant Parade in Real Red. The sentiment from Happy Hour was stamped in Real Red. I added some spritzing in both colors. (The Color Spritzer just retired, but it will never leave my stash of tools!) For the finishing touch, I added Silver stars punched with the star punch in the Merry Minis punch pack. (It's not in the catalog, but it's still available!) I think it's a great card to celebrate our independence here in the USA!
I hope you enjoyed my stop on the hop! Martha is next! Just in case there are any missing or broken links, you can find a list of everyone participating right here.
