I haven’t posted since May but, that doesn’t mean that I haven’t been crafting. This summer just seemed to be flying by and I just kept procrastinating about blogging. But I am back! And I am finally going to post my cards from the Fourth of July.
As you may know by now I send out 10 cards for every major and minor holiday for my nieces, nephews and grand nieces and nephews. Below are the cards that I sent out. I made some duplicates and that is why I am only featuring 6 cards today.
I used a digital stamp set from Deasy Design called Aero Boy for these first few cards. Additionally, I paired the little pilot with some fireworks that are part of a digital stamp from Stampin Up. The sentiment is handstamped and I hand doodled the diagonal stripes on the wings.
Here is another image from the Aero Boy collection. For both this card and the one above I added little star stamps to the boys shirt to make it even more patriotic.
This set of digital stamps from Deasy Design is so cute and it’s really a bargain. You get 15 or 16 individual digital stamps for only $7.50! You can find these stamps here DeasyDesigns on Etsy.
I have a few nieces as well as nephews, so I made a few feminine cards as well. This card features a freebie from Whimsie Doodles called July4day. I colored each girls hair just a little differently to represent the niece to whom I was sending it. One of my nieces has the cutest curly hair so I doodled in some wavy locks.
Good to hear from you, Mo. I haven’t done much crafting since hanging with you at the Craft Fair. I had a good summer though. Hope you are well. Cute cards! Bethany
Hi, Bethany! Preparing for the Craft Show kind of burnt me out for a while too. I hope you enjoy your last few weeks before school starts back. If I have a ladies night in August I’ll email you an invitation. 😊
Oh I hear you on the not getting around to blogging but still crafting. That is me also at the moment. I am trying to get back into it though.
Love your set of cards though they are really cute. Sometimes going clean and simple makes things easier. Thanks for dropping into blog land to share your latest creations.
