06.29.2022…..Happy Wednesday, my stampin’ friends! With July 4th just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to create this patriotic card….using the new Alphabest Bundle! It includes the Alphabest Stamp Set, along with the Best Label Punch. Soooooo much fun! Hope this card inspires you to create some patriotic projects as well!
To create each card, I started Basic White Thick Cardstock., embossed it with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder, and adhered it to a Basic White Thick Cardstock base. On top of that, I add some Sun Prints Designer Series Paper.
Next, I used a Blending Brush to add some Night of Navy to Basic White Thick Cardstock. I then “stamped off” the “happy” sentiment (from the Biggest Wish Stamp Set) one time, before I stamped it each time on the cardstock. To create the white speckling, I used White Craft Stampin’ Ink, along with my Water Painter. I watered down the ink a bit before I created the speckling. To create the speckling, I “flicked” the brush tip oagainst the inside edge of the brush cap, and “flicked” outward towards the paper. Once the speckling was dry, I used the Water Painter again, to add some water droplets. Once the cardstock was dry, I popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped all of the letters and the little stars (from the Alphabest Bundle) on Night of Navy Cardstock and Sweet Sorbet Cardstock. After I punched out each of the letters with the Best Label Punch, I distressed the cardstock, and punched a tiny hole at the top of each tag. I then threaded Sweet Sorbet Baker’s Twine (from the 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine Pack) through each hole. (I actually pulled out a few threads from the Baker’s Twine before adding it to the tags.) I then popped up each of the tags with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For a bit of bling, I sprinkled on several of the Sparkle & Shine Sequins.
