Stampin’ Up! Great Big Greetings for the 4th of July

Hello, Stamping Friends, I hope your Independence Day is going to be fun filled!  My share today is from the new Great Big Greetings stamp set found on page 67 of the 2017-18 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  I love large greetings for the front of my cards, and this stamp set is especially fun.

My card base is Night of Navy. A panel of Silver Foil was dry embossed with the new Oh My Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and matted to a panel of Real Red with multipurpose liquid glue.  

I stamped the sentiment from Great Big Greetings in Real Red, then stamped it again in Night of Navy and cut out the small words and notched each end for a banner to pop onto the front.  The sentiment panel was framed in Night of Navy and Real Red, then added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A Real Red Enamel Shape star was added to complete the front.

For the inside, I stamped the splotches from Touches of Texture in Night of Navy and Real Red onto the Whisper White panel.  Next, I stamped the sentiment from Watercolor Words in Versa Mark ink, sprinkled it with Silver Emboss powder and heat embossed it.  Silver Sequins and Silver Metallic Enamel Shape Stars completed the festive look.  

I think Great Big Greetings works well for this occasion, but would also work for birthdays and any other festive celebration, how about you?

Card stock cuts and a supply list will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate

Happy Saturday!  What a wonderful weekend to celebrate this beautiful USA and our patriots.  My Stampin’ Up! Celebrate card is dedicated to all of our service men and women, past and present, who have served all over the world to keep us free!  


Stampin' Up! Celebrate


The inspiration for the sketch is from Hand Stamped Sentiments #241.



And, I’m also playing along with the TGIF color challenge # 62


TGIF JULY 2016 Challenges-004


I wanted to make a patriotic card anyway for this 4th of July weekend, so the TGIF62 challenge was a perfect one to play along with!  I hope you will check out both of the sites to see all of the beautiful cards there.


Stampin' Up! Celebrate


I employed several different stamp sets for my Stampin’ Up! Celebrate card.  First, I stamped the splotched image from Swirly Bird in Night of Navy onto a panel of Whisper White.  That panel was rounded on the left side with the Project Life Corner Punch.  I added some clear Wink of Stella to some of the splotches to give it some bling.  This panel was framed with a panel of Real Red that also had the corner rounded. The banners are punched with the Banner Triple punch in Navy Floral Boutique DSP and Real Red from the Brights DSP stacks and adhered to the art panel with multipurpose liquid glue.  


Stampin' Up! Celebrate


I die cut a Real Red star using the 3rd from the smallest Stars Framelits; die cut the 2nd to the smallest star in Dazzling Diamonds DSP, and glued them together.  I used the Celebrate stamp from Celebrate Today for my sentiment.  It is stamped with Versa Mark ink and sprinkled with White Embosing Powder, then heat embossed.  I popped it onto the stars with dimensionals, added dimensionals to the back of the stars and popped it onto the banners.  

I used one of the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets dies to cut out the small red stars.  They have Wink of Stella applied to them also and are attached with a small dot of glue.

My whole art panel was then added to the Whisper White card base with dimensionals.


Stampin' Up! Celebrate


For the inside, I stamped some more of the splotches, except this time, they are in Real Red.  I chose the sentiment from Watercolor Words and stamped it in Night of Navy, then added some strips of the DSP used on the front to the bottom.  The Night of Navy stars also have some clear Wink of Stella applied to them.  

Hope you have enjoyed my Stampin’ Up! Celebrate card and hope you are celebrating this beautiful weekend with friends and/or family!
