July is upon us, and here we are looking forward to the fireworks in just a few days. Fourth of July celebrations here in the United States is what inspired my first project for this month.
Using the Uh-Oh Ink Splatter Collection, I was able to come up with this fun project.
First thing I did was grab my handy dandy Stampoholic Nano and place the cardstock so that I would be able to repeat the impression of the paint swipe stamp across three times. Using Stampabilities Royal Blue pigment ink I did the first stamp in the top left corner. Using Craftsmart Red pigment ink I did the swipes. By using the Nano I was able to repeat the impression in the exact spot if the ink didn't clearly transfer. Once this all came together, I used the "You Make Me Brave" sentiment from the "Worship Him" set to finish off the card. I really hope you enjoy my project as much as I enjoyed making it for you.
Here is another card using the same "Uh-Oh Ink Splatter" stamp set.
Using various colors of Amuse Pigment Inks and sequins from Kat Scrappiness's "Trix" collection this card came together quite quick and easily. The "Love You" came from the "Infinity 2" stamp set.
While I am at it, we have had such a tragedy hit here in Florida two weeks ago with the attack at the PULSE Nightclub in Orlando. A group of card makers have started making a collection of cards for the victims and their families. Using the Infinity 2 stamp set along with some Tattered Angels Shimmer Sprays, I was able to put this card together... I first stamped the Infinity Symbol and the word Hope using Versamark Ink, heated it with White embossing powder and went to work with the shimmer sprays. Photo's just do not give this card justice.

Happy 4th of July Weekend everyone!!! I made a few purchases last week, and this one item was in my brain as soon as I saw it.
I purchased a few dies from Gina over and the Pine Needles struck me as perfect for this card... Cut out of DCWV glitter cardstock and added a few sequins from Kat's Patriotic Mix I knew I had found my happiness. The sentiment is from a no longer available Sentiment set from the now closed Virginia Turtle (gonna miss them).
I hope you have enjoyed this card and please everyone, have a safe and happy holiday weekend.
