Red, White and Blue cards

I have made two Red, White and Blue cards for a few challenges.

  1. MISTI Monday Challenge at Split Coast Stampers
  2. Mod Squad Challenge
  3. Gina K Designs July Challenge
Anchor Birthday
Hot Air Balloons

I began with the Hot Air Balloon card for the Mod Squad Challenge and the MISTI one. Both needed Red, White, and Blue and the MISTI one had to be non-patriotic. While making this, I knew it needed something else, but couldn’t figure out what. My husband said the balloons could be over the water, so out came another embossing folder. Both folders used are from SU. I enjoy using these balloons both stamped and die cut.

I created the anchor one when I realized it was a Red, White and Blue challenge and started to post the Hot Air Balloon one, then remembered that it needs to be a Gina K Stamp set to be eligible for a win, so the anchors came out.

Thanks for sharing in my fun with the Red, White and Blue cards.

Quick update on the Hot Air Balloon card — It made the top 3 winner of the Mod Squad Challenge. Here is the badge:

Another update: The anchor card won the July Misti Monday challenge. They do not have a badge.

WWII Vet Card

For the Teapot Challenge at SCS

I am playing along with two challenges at Split Coast Stampers. One is the Teapot Challenge which comes out on Tuesdays. This week’s challenge is to create a birthday card for a WWII Veteran who will be turning 93 in April. They challenged each person to use red, white, and blue. I used this week’s sketch in creating this card.

Details: GKD cardstock in Kraft, Blue Denim, Red Hot, and Layering Weight White. Fiskars star punch. Sizzix drop-in Happy Birthday die. SU Lucky Stars embossing folder.

I enjoyed making this card. I will place it in the mail tomorrow.
