Hey there! It's time for the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop! yay! Our theme for June is Patriotic, and we have some absolutely fabulous projects to share with you this month!
Stella MacKay is still on an extended vacation in Europe after the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip to the Mediterranean, so if you are already on the hop you've probably come from Laura Milligan's blog, I'd Rather "Bee" Stampin'! If at any time you get off course or one of our links doesn't work, just refer to the blog hop list at the bottom of this post and you can keep going!
For my Patriotic Project I used the Stars Framelits, Swirly Scribbles Thinlets, Labeler Alphabet, and the Confetti Stars Border Punch. I used the new Labeler Alphabet to stamp the letters for "God Bless America". We have the National Anthem, the Star Spangled Banner, but when I think of patriotism, I think of asking God to bless and lead our country.
I started with a star card base cut with Dapper Denim card stock and the largest Star Framelit. I cut a couple of swirling scribbles from Real Red card stock using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlet which I adhered to a Whisper White star cut with the next-smaller size Star Framelit with my Fine Tip Glue Pen. I trimmed the edges of the red swirls flush with the star with Paper Snips.
I punched a bunch of Dapper Denim stars with the Confetti Stars Border Punch, then randomly added with Fine Tip Glue and a "tacky toothpick".
I cut a Silver Glimmer Paper star with the smallest Star Framelit, adding it to the front with a Stampin' Dimensional.
After stamping the letters for "God Bless America" with Dapper Denim ink I cut them all out with Paper Snips and added them with Glue Dots.
Are you wondering about my "tacky toothpick"? A "tacky toothpick" is a regular wooden toothpick that I put a small drop of Tombow Multipurpose Glue on one end, then allow to air-dry.
The dry glue stays "tacky", allowing you pick up tiny pieces of paper, add a bit of glue to the back, and place precisely on your project!
Inside I stamped a word from the new Thoughtful Banners set with Dapper Denim ink and added a few Read Red stars using my tacky toothpick again.
