BLOG HOP & GIVEAWAY: Patriotic Thank You Cards from the Layering Alphabet Dies

BLOG HOP PROJECT

Welcome to my Stamp It Demonstrator’s Group Patriotic Theme Blog Hop. We’re all really excited to unveil our projects, and announce a new contest give-away (below).  To continue on your journey through our projects, simply use the BLOG HOPPERS links below.

I’m loving these patriotic American flag “thanks” cards, perfect designs for that special someone who has served our country. Also great for Cards for Troops, and 4th of July parties.

These cards were created with the new Layering Alphabet dies from Stampin Up. These dies are designed to interlock with included Edgelit piece to create cascading word projects. I took it a step further and popped up the letters in Silver Foil to really make them “pop” (like a fire cracker).

I made 2 different designs and I couldn’t decide which I liked better, the traditional flag layout, or the alternating “stripes and stars” (the stars are represented by polka dots). I also made them with several different colors from the new Stampin Up patterned dsp. I have a video tutorial below.

BOSTON HARBOR

In honor of the 4th of July holiday, and a tribute to all who’ve served our country, I wanted to share a photo I took a couple of weeks ago in Boston Harbor. Boston has a lot of historical significance in American History. Here the Stars and Stripes waving proudly with the city of Boston in the distance. Thanks for letting me share, and now back to our cards….


ONLINE CLASS VIDEO

If you can’t make it live, this video replay will be on here on my blog, Facebook and Youtube along with an “after live” drawing (below).


 

LAYERING ALPHABET DIES & STAMPS

On this card I only used the dies (without the stamps) but you could easily adapt the cards to include both. You save 10% when you purchase them together as a bundle.

NEW DESIGNER PAPER BY COLOR FAMILIES

These are the 4 different color families I used for these cards. Each package contains 40 double sided sheets by color. The core family packages contain 10 colors and 2 of each sheet, the In Color packages contain 5 colors and 4 of each sheet.

Because you get 4 sheets of each from the In Color, it gets the most mileage for these cards.
