Let's Celebrate!

Hello!  It's Monday, July is here and the 4th is just around the corner. So for my post today I have made some fun party supplies just perfect for that picnic or BBQ!

All of my projects features product available from The Rubber Cafe'.  I've included a simple and easy Invitation, Menu and even place card settings to dress any table this 4th of July.   And for some added spirit- I made these fun pinwheels.

The stampset featured is Franed Flag - that I stamped in Memento Ink - London Fog.  It's a soft taupe color, that gave me the transparent look I was going for.  I colored the background with copic, but the red stripes on the flag is using Tim Holtz- Aged Mahogny, that I applied with water and a brush.
Here's some closeup views...

I love this menu- I used the Mini Jar stamp - which I stamped in Memento Black, after I had printed the menu first on my Pugnacious white cardstock.  I used the oval label from the Card Labels set to focus the menu items, and behind is another label that I filled in by paper piecng with a navy star print. 

For the place cards after finishing my flag images, I stamped each name on individual punched stars using the Candi Stamps Alphabet set-
(this too could be done on your computer). 

The Pinwheels I cut with my Cameo Silhouette, but can provide anyone with a PDF file you can print and cut by hand.

Have a happy and SAFE 4th of July!
