About Me

I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Let's Celebrate


I hope your Saturday has been relaxing. Mine certainly has. I've been playing in my craft room most of the day. I did some coloring using colored pencils on Kraft card stock and I've made two Fourth Of July cards.

Here is one of the Fourth Of July cards that I made. I've used this week's Freshly Made Sketch for my layout.

The stamp set is a very old Stampin' Up set called July 4th. I stamped the three fireworks stamps using two shades of blue and two shades of red randomly until most of the front of the card was covered. The star stamp is from this same set. I stamped two in the lighter shade of blue and punched them out using the SU medium star punch. These are layered onto slightly larger star dies cut from SU Poppy Parade paper. The sentiment strip stamp and the sentiment are from Avery Elle. I added several silver sequins and tiny clear rhinestones to the centers of the fireworks images.

The images for the inside are from the 4th of July Wreath set by Taylored Expressions.

I'll post more of the cards that I made today in the next few days.

Have a nice Sunday and thanks for looking in,
