Happy 4th of July!

It is my turn to post on the Jaded Blossom Blog and I have a super cute treat to share with you today using goodies from Jaded Blossom!

I know that sometimes we don't have stamps for specific holidays, so I wanted to share with you a way to make a festive treat for the 4th without one.

To start with, I cut three of the Ric Rac Topper Die and some stars from the Star Dies. I then used my Silhouette machine to cut three of the free SVG outline files of the United States that coordinates with the United States Map stamp set. This is where the fantastic technique of embossing comes in handy. I first stamped the image of the United States Map on my svg diecut using the Versamark Watermark Stamp Pad and then I stamped the word Celebrating from Invitations Galore over the top of it also using the Versamark Watermark ink. I then poured blue embossing powder over it and heat set it and was able to get a fun sentiment right over my map. I used some Doodlebug Design paper for my background and some iridescent white cardstock from my scrap pile for the stars.

I think they came out quite festive and so very fun!

Thanks for dropping in today! May your day be blessed with the joy of family and friends; and where it is needed, may God grant you peace and comfort!
