Perfect Pair Blog Hop



Hi, everyone! Thanks for stopping by... :) Clear & Simple Stamps and Creative Cuts & More have teamed up for a super fun two day blog hop.  Hopefully you've come to my blog by way of Noelle's blog, but if not, please feel free to start at the beginning of the hop by clicking **HERE**.

Here are my projects for today:

092110

I used the Freedom stamp set from Clear & Simple Stamps, as well as several of the die cuts available from Creative Cuts & More (Dog Tags, Star Window Square Box #01, and Filigree Rectangle Window A7 Card - Vertical)

092110b

To create my card, I started with the Filigree Rectangle Window A7 Card - Vertical card from Creative Cuts & More, and stamped the flag and one of the sentiments from the Clear & Simple Stamps Freedom stamp set.  I colored the flag with Copics, then went back and added white detailing to the stars.  I stamped the row of stars in turquoise, then embellished the card with ribbon and flowers.

092210c

Next up is this *adorable* little box (Star Window Square Box #01).  I started by stamping a row of stars at the top and bottom of the front of the box, then colored them in with a white gel pen.  I stamped some of the word images from the Freedom set onto the acetate window, and while they were drying, I assembled the box.  To finish up, I adhered the window, then wrapped ribbon and twine around the outside of the box, then attached the Dog Tags and flowers.

  16. Wow, great projects featuring patriotic theme. I just love them. I always seem to struggle when it come to being creative, so these are a big help. I have a few friends who children are in the service and I think these are great things I can send them.
