Fireworks for the 4th!


One of the new level 2 hostess sets in the Stampin' Up catalog is called In the Spotlight. This stamp from that set also reminds me of fireworks, so I chose to use it for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS. (All products Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted.) The main image is stamped in Cranberry Crisp ink, and punched out with my Marvy 2" circle punch. I sponged the edges of the circle with Bordering Blue ink. This piece is mounted on a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock, and then Cranberry Crisp cardstock, and both layers were trimmed with my ticket corner punch. This piece is mounted on the card using dimensionals. My card base is Sahara Sand, with a layer of Cranberry Crisp on top of it. The designer paper is from a line by "sei" called Grandpa's Attic. The paisley piece is "Paisley Hanky" and the dotted piece is called "Sunday Socks!" I tied a piece of black satin ribbon around that layer, added black brads in the upper right corner, and adhered it to the card. The "hello" sentiment is stamped in Basic Black, punched out with my 1/2" circle punch and mounted on a dimensional. Thanks for looking!
