Let Freedom Ring

Posted on

This is a group shot of most of the cards that I made for my nieces and nephews and 2 of my friend’s kids. I try to send a card with either stickers or a $1 bill in it to my N & N’s each holiday. It’s a fun way to keep in touch with them and the kids get such a thrill out of getting mail too.

I used my Imaginisce Crab and Imaginisce Whale stamps for some of the cards. For the sailboat card I used the Stampin’ Up Sail Away stamp set and I hand wrote the sentiment.  The star for the card in the front center was hand cut and I added a button that says Liberty on it. (I have no idea where this button came from because I’ve had it for eons!)

  Nothing says American summer more than sweet, delicious

crustaceans and pyrotechnics!

I hope you have a whale-y good time this 4th of July!

For my 12 year old nephews (My sister Nancy has 3 boys all 12 years old!) I wanted to create something a little more mature but still festive. I used the Sail Away set from Stampin’ Up to make this card. I hand wrote the sentiment with a white gel pen.

(FYI my walls are not green. I took these photos at night and the pendant lights that hang above my kitchen island are green. The lights don’t make the walls look green to the naked eye but the camera captured the green light that pendants must  cast.)

Happy 4th of July,

This elephant stamp is from Imaginisce. The stamp includes a heart that is popping up out of the elephant’s trunk. It is cute but I wanted to make a Fourth of July card, so I masked the heart and used a firework stamp instead.

I don’t have the original packaging for the firework stamp so I can’t remember if it was Hero Arts or Hampton Arts. At some point I need to sign up for the Inlinkz feature so that the products I used can be listed under my post. Someday…maybe.

If you happen to know the name/manufacturer of this stamp please let me know.

The blue background paper was made with a background stamp, who’s manufacturer I cannot recall at this time either! The problem is that I create the cards at home in the morning or the night before but, I blog about them at work. So by the time I am writing about the card I have forgotten the names of the stamps that I used. (I suppose I could write down the names of the products I use, when I’m using them.  But that would be just way too smart and efficient)

I am going to enter this card into the Simon Says Stamps Challenge Sporty or Patriotic


Happy Stamping,
