July blog hop - Red, White & Blue! Happy 4th of July 

Welcome to this month’s blog hop with Di's Country Inkers!   
Our theme for this blog hop is Red, White & Blue…for the 4th of July, of course!  Wasn’t Crystal’s project awesome?!

Here is my red, white, and blue card (I really like the swirly bird diecuts and stamps – so versatile and fun!)

My sister in Mass. is getting married later this month by Scituate Lighthouse and I am flying out to the wedding.  She and her fiancee enjoy visiting various lighthouses and the maritime/nautical paraphernalia, so I thought a red, white, blue card for their wedding with the lighthouse stamp from the set From Land and Sea would be perfect!

Here are the other Stampin' Up products I used:
  • Dapper Denim ink and cardstock,
  • Cherry Cobbler ink and cardstock,
  • Serene Scenery 6 x 6 designer series paper stack,
  • Floral Phrases stamp set (wedding greeting),
  • Swirly Bird stamp set (boat and sunset),
  • Swirly Scribbles diecut (ocean waves),
  • Cherry Cobble baker's twine (bow),
  • Gold metallic twine trim, and
  • Clear and gold wink of stella to add glimmer.

Here are a few more pictures of the card so you can see the "glimmer:"

 The sailboat and lighthouse were fussy cut and adhered with pop-up dimensionals. When I was taking the photos of my card, I thought all the lines reminded me of Vincent Van Gogh's picture, Starry Night.  Hope it is okay to show a little picture of that painting, but I didn't even think about it until I was taking pictures - honest!

The next blog you will hop to is Diana's, for a super awesome project! 

Next up is Ellie - Enjoy her fun project and the rest of the bloggers' designs as well, and thanks for stopping by!  Hope you get to enjoy some 4th of July fireworks….since our 2 furbabies don’t like them, we will be watching them on television!!
 You can purchase all of the Stampin’ Up products used in my online store.

Here is the blog lineup!
