Happy 4th of July




Happy 4th of July.  I hope it is warm and sunny where you are.  I am popping in quickly to share 3 cards.

First up, very fitting for this holiday is a red, white and blue birthday card for my brother-in-law whose birthday is tomorrow.   I based this card on the card below, and I decided to change up the colors a little and make it more patriotic.

I am entering this card at PTI Transformation Tuesday, Addicted to Stamps and More #299: CAS, and Simon Says Monday Challenge and Simon Says Wednesday challenge who are both Red, White and Blue.

Original Card







My next card uses the Ombre Watercolor Background technique from PTI Make it Monday #327, and I am also entering it at CAS on Friday #136: Splash-Watercolor and Just Us Girls #447: Anything Goes.  I used images from Songbirds and Tropics.






Last up is my favorite of today's line up, using some new PTI stamps Salt Air Fauna and Flora.  It was really fun to put together, although there is a lot of 2 and 3 step stamping.


I am entering this card at CAS(E) This Sketch #278, Cupcake Inspirations #449: Under the Sea, AAA Cards #118: Use a Frame, and Paper Players #400: Celebration.





Thanks for Visiting

  9. These are all fabulous Joyce! I love the red, white and blue star card. Just perfect for a masculine birthday. The ombre watercolored background card is stunning using the leaf prints you used too. Now let's talk about that darling under the sea card. It's totally adorable and I love the design you used with them peeking through the film slide. So, so cute!
