Retired Stampin’ Up! Blog Hop: Fourth of July

Welcome to the very first blog hop made up of members from the Retired Stampin’ Up! Products for Sale Facebook page.  Today’s theme is Fourth of July and every project is made with retired Stampin’ Up! products.  We are very excited to show you our creations and hope to make our hops something that you will follow each month.

As a military Veteran, I’m VERY proud of being American.  As an avid stamper, I love any stamp set that has the American flag.  I also enjoy clean and simple cards that anyone can make.  Often a simple stamped image can speak volumes and I think my card with just the colored in flag oozes patriotism.

The Details:

  • One continuous stamped image.  Do you think the stamped image is one stamped image?  Nope, it sure isn’t.  It looks like one continuous stamp because I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the images and give the grass as if it’s one stamp.  I love the Stamp-a-ma-jig and how it can help you line up stamps on wood blocks.
  • Make an image pop.  Since today’s blog hop is dedicated to the Fourth of July, I wanted to add emphasis to the American flag by coloring in only the flag.  That’s the focus of my card and it’s why I didn’t stamp any sentiment.  The Red, White, and Blue speaks for itself. 

You can continue to hop from blog to blog from the line-up below to see all the projects.  Please feel free to leave comments as you hop along the way.  We hope to see you again next month!

Fellow consultant Brittany’s TRUE STORY made me giggle.
Reverse Regimen
She washed her face (with R+F products of course) before dinner,
at the table her husband asked,  “Do you have makeup on right now?”
She said, “No, why?”  That’s when he said, “Wow, the products really do work!”
She said he hardly noticed when she got a short haircut and died it brown. 😂😂

Thank YouMy card today is my submittal to Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge #252.  I have to admit that this sketch was a true challenge.  But isn’t that the point…to challenge ourselves? LOL

PPA 252

Please tickle me and join in on this challenge.  Show me what you can do…I’d love to see your work at the Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge.

MAGGIE MADE TIPS: Not in cash, but great crafting recommendations.

  • Stamp the sentiment all the way across.  The ‘thank you’ stamp sure is small and I didn’t want it to be missed. So I stamped it across the entire piece of card stock.  It won’t be missed now. Don’t worry if it doesn’t line up right either, the message gets across.  Literally across the who piece of paper. LOL.

RAFFEL ENDED.  Great prizes too!  See the drawing here.
