You’re My Hero

Preview 2Happy Tuesday everyone!  This is my second post for the day but I just HAD to post again to let EVERYONE know that today is a BLOG CANDY day on Create with with Connie and Mary Preview Week Summer Collection!  So…how you you join in the fun?  Well…check out below for more details!

First…a little about my card…the base of the card is Real Red.  I took a piece of Night of Navy and pierced a large star on it.  No there is not a template for this, I did it by hand.  I added it to a piece of Whisper White.  I stamped the greeting using Real Red and Night of Navy, cut into a banner and added to the card.  I did the star from Simply Stars in Real Red and the police car from You’re My Hero in Real Red, Night of Navy and Basic Black.  I cut this out and added using dimensionals.  I added the fun arrow paper clip then added this panel to the card front using dimensionals.

Simply Stars

SUOThe SUO challenge this time is PATRIOTIC!!!  I JUST got this stamp set and I just couldn’t resist putting a little ink to the rubber for the red, white, and blue!

The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler.  I took a piece of Night of Navy, layered on Whisper White and added to the card base using dimensionals.  Next I cut a Cherry Cobbler banner from the Regal dsp paper pack and Whisper White from the Neutrals dsp paper pack.  The big star is stamped in Night of Navy and the small ones in Cherry Cobbler and cut out.  Two were added directly to the card.  I stamped the greeting from You’re My Hero using Night of Navy on Whisper White and punched out using the Modern Label punch.  I stamped one of the images from Lovely Labels using Cherry Cobbler, punched with the Artisan Label Punch, cut in half and layered behind the greeting.  The greeting was added using dimensionals.  I then added the little star using dimensionals.  Finally I added several Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.
