July Facebook Hop: Red, White, and Blue +3!

Hi!  If you are visiting from our team Facebook hop, WELCOME! I hope you enjoy your visit!  This month, our team created projects using the colors red, white, and blue, as well as three of any word or image.  For my project, I used the Wood Words stamp set to stamp three stars in Real Red on the white distressed look paper from the Wood Textures 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  I then used the Layering Squares Framelits to cut them out, and used a different die from the set to cut scalloped frames for them from Night of Navy card stock.

I used the Celebrate You Thinlits to cut the sentiment from Silver Foil Sheets, and also used silver stars from the NEW Twinkle Adhesive Backed Sequins to accent each star!  I was out of town when I assembled this card, and I had originally planned to mount the framed stars with Dimensionals to add a little extra detail, but I ran out of the house and forgot to pack them (oops)!  So this whole card was adhered with Snail Adhesive and Multipurpose glue instead.

Here’s a close up of the shine of the silver on the stars and the sentiment:


Measurements for this card are as follows:

Night of Navy card stock base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Real Red middle layer: 4 x 5-1/4 inches

White DSP layer:  3-7/8 x 5-1/8 inches

Night of Navy scalloped squares:  1-1/2 x 1-1/2 inches

White DSP squares with stars: 1-3/16 x 1-3/16

Silver Foil “Celebrate” sentiment:  1-1/8 x 3-5/8 inches (approximately)


I hope you’ve enjoyed your visit to my blog, and will check out the other projects created by my team for this month’s Facebook hop!  Everyone’s projects are truly unique, and there’s a lot of inspiration to see!

Thanks for stopping by!


Saturday Road Trip and Facebook Hop Tonight

Happy Saturday!  🙂

This morning I will be driving to Maine to attend a Stampin’ Up! event hosted by a demonstrator friend, Sherri Everett!  I am leaving at 7:00 am and the drive will take about 4 hours.  I am super excited, and am sure that I will have lots of gorgeous cards to show after it’s over!

I am also participating in my team’s July Facebook hop TONIGHT, starting at 8:00 pm ET. Please check back then to see my project for this month.  Our theme for July is Red, White, and Blue + 3!  (So those colors plus three of any image, punch, etc.)  I hope you’ll check back in to check out what we’ve created!  You can find my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ellocindesigns.   (I would love it if you “liked” my page while you’re there as well!)
