Let Freedom Ring!


Happy July 4th, Independence Day, those two words have a lot of meaning, God Bless Our Military! This weeks theme here at The Rubber Cafe is Patriotic Theme, so I created this USA Banner using corrugated cardboard, My Minds Eye American Made pattern paper, Outdoor Denim and Cranberry ink, red, white and blue buttons, assorted patriotic ribbon from Creative Impressions and the best part is the amazing Vintage Stamps from The Rubber Cafe.

I am sure when these stamps where designed they didn't think about someone using them in a Patriotic Theme but this just show how versatile these amazing stamps can really be, after all America was started somewhere and Vintage is a part of American History and I have to say it is my favorite part of history.
                                   I also used F-617 Freedom Ring from The Rubber Cafe.

To create my background for my banner I took the ink colors and just stamped the stamps randomly around on a white sheet of card stock, the I placed my S5-028 Nested Pennants from Spellbinders in the area I wanted to die cut using the Grand Calibur. I took the S5-029 Nested Lacey Pennants and die cut it out of pattern paper. I also die cut the S5-028 Nested Pennants out of the corrugated cardboard.

To add some sparkle to my project I had the perfect product, Nestabling Pennants Silver Rhinestones from Want2Scrap. I attached my project together using Beacon Adhesives Zip Dry. Thank you for stopping by my blog post today, enjoy your 4th of July holiday. Crafty Smiles.....Terre
