Hey there. Today is a good day! It's Father's Day, of course, which means all of our kids and grandkids will be here for lunch and the afternoon! Today is also the 15th, which means it's time for "Home of the Brave", the June edition of:
You may have arrived here from Stella's blog, StellarStamps.com I just love what Stella comes up with every month! Her style is simple but WOW! If you are just getting started, no worries! You can start here, hop through all 12 blogs, be inspired, then get busy creating something awesome of your own!
With the theme "Home of the Brave", I wanted to do something patriotic to commemorate our great Nation's birth. A card just didn't seem like enough, so I decided to use my new Star Framelits:
I hand-snipped the ends of Night of Navy banners, then used four of the five star framelits for the stars.
I embossed the Night of Navy banners with the Stylish Stripes folder, then cut Real Red Backgrounds Designer Paper with a Starburst Framelit.
I cut Silver Glimmer paper for the largest stars, and punched the tiniest silver stars with the star punch from the Merry Minis Punch Pack, which is still available through August 27th on the Carryover List!
I used the alphabet stencils from the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit to add the letters with Night of Navy ink. I'm so glad this kit is in the new catalog!
Each banner is assembled with either Stampin' Dimensionals or Glue Dots
Lastly, I covered regular clothespins with Real Red paper, cutting the strips 3/8" wide by 3 7/8" long and adhering with SNAIL.
I'm excited to decorate for the 4th with my new banner!
