Tutorial With Your Challenge

Last week I had done a cute little hanger with cupcakes.  Behind the cupcakes were pleated circles.  I had some requests to do a little tutorial on how these were made.  It's very simple really.

In today's Challenge #24 Red, White & Blue I've added a video below to show how I made those cute pleated circles.  I hope you enjoy.

Today's project is another hanger, this time using the Framed Flag and the God Bless America with Stars.  I used chipboard for stability behind each piece.  The Framed flag was stamped using distressed ink, Faded Jeans and Fired Brick.  When mixing two different inks, start with the lighter of the two colors if you can.  I stamped the God Bless America using the same ink.  I added ribbon for hanging and a few stars to finish it off.  This would also be great with the Eagle Pair stamp.

This is my first video...I was a lil nervious...

Thanks for checking out my Red White & Blue...Now show us yours.
