Happy Fourth of July everyone! I hope you all have something fun planned to do today! We will be sitting on the deck of our houseboat watching the fireworks over the lake - I am very excited about this as I have been told it is a fabulous show!! And, the best part is, we don't have to drive anywhere - lol!!! So, today is another Stamp Something Challenge with a theme of bling - some bling on your creation, whatever you want! So, I made this card in honor of my friend and fellow Stamp Something DT member Melissa, who is celebrating her birthday today - how cool is that???!!!!! I hope she already received this in the mail, otherwise I am ruining the surprise - lol! Happy Birthday M! love ya girl!!!! I am excited about how this card turned out, it was exactly what I wanted for her! I used my stamp set Pun Fun and paper pieced the bird using this fabulous star paper from Adorn It! (I am COMPLETELY out of my SU! star paper) which goes really well with Not Quite Navy card stock! I then took the dp and cut it into three equal strips to make the background for my card. The image is stamped on Naturals White card stock and the corners are punched with the Ticket Corner Punch, which I then added faux stitching to. I used my slit punch to make the scallops, I just like the deeper scallops it makes rather than using my corner rounder. I then added some white mini eyelets (gosh I hope SU! does not make these retire, I love them!) which I added to the scallops with my Crop-a-dile. The stars are punched out of Naturals White card stock using my Large Star punch. I added the red, blue, and dazzling diamonds glitter to each using my Tombow adhesive - I love this glitter, but gosh, I always make such a mess, lol! I then let them dry and popped them up on dimensionals and was done! I hope you like my challenge card - please make sure you go over and check out what the rest of the DT did, I can assure you, you will love them all! Have a fun and safe Fourth of July!! And, leave me a comment to be entered into the drawing for the Coconuts gift certificate!
