The Sisterhood of Crafters – Stenciling Challenge

DRU Challenge #148 – Anything Goes

Happy Birthday America! To celebrate our country’s Independence Day this July 4th, I CASED a SSS reprise of Lauren Bassen’s 2015 card. My card will be entered into the The Sisterhood of Crafters Stenciling Challenge and the stencils I used are Pretty Pink Posh’s wide stripes stencil and a swirl stencil that I cannot remember the name…it was either a SSS or a Tim Holtz included in a kit possibly. My stripes were inked with GKD’s Faded Brick and Cherry Red, the star area was sponged with GKD’s powder blue and navy inks. The stars are the unnamed stencil and Brutus Monroe’s Alabaster Glitter Glaze.

The second part of the challenge is Dies R Us Challenge #148 – Anything Goes and to include a metal die. My scripty metal die is a Spellbinder’s sentiment which reminds me of something that Buddy Bonnie would create using her Silhouette. I layered it and finally cut it out with some glitter paper added some self adhesive stars for my “dots” and found that cool “ribbon” in my stash.

Besides the SSS inspiration, I was inspired by our Buddy Judy with her amazing patriotic Americana cards lately.

Have a great day and stay safe.

    1. Thanks, Bonnie, you are all my inspiration and support. Love our group and was happy to be included. Happy Independence Day.

  3. A great patriotic card and so well done. It shows your feelings and yet isn’t a true flag.
