Hello and welcome to the Artisans’ Award Blog Hop! You have landed here from Andrea Munro’s blog, www.andreamunro.blogspot.com. She has an awesome blog with lots of fun ideas.
In these photos you will see I have used lots of Cherry Cobbler and Baja Breeze for my red and blue. I also used several dies for the Big Shot: the Table Setting XL Bigz die, Perfect Setting XL Bigz die, and the Stars #2 Bigz die. The largest tag on the die is what I used to cut my horizontal panel under the flag on my card. The smaller tag was the perfect shape and size for my mini America banner and cupcakes. As for the chunky silver glitter, my favorite method to adhere it to letters or shapes is to use Sticky Pages. It easily cuts on the Big Shot with any of the Bigz dies. The last two details that bring my projects to life are a quick run through the Dots Impressions folder and two coats of Smooch Spritz. First with silver and the second with white.
BLOG CANDY ALERT!!! So, are you wondering where the “God Bless America” stamp image comes from? It is a retired Stampin' Up! image of which I can't let go. If you think you know leave a comment with your answer. From those who leave a comment with the correct answer I will pick a winner for a shiny new blog candy prize package! That’s right I am giving away a stamp girls best friend--Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and a pack of Rhinestones, the ones from the new Stampin’ Up! Idea Book & Catalog. A winner will be randomly selected by July 3rd.
