Wave the Flag - Bloggers Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with the Rev Your Engines Challenge, the challenge this week is Wave the Flag.


Inspired by the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge, I used images from the Artistic Outpost Hero stamp set along with Dies and pattern paper from Our Daily Bread Designs to create my card.

I stamped the sweet little solider boy in Black Archival on Vanilla card stock, masked the image with Eclipse tape then stamped the flag.  The image is colored with STAEDTLER Watercolor Markers.  The beautiful patriotic papers are from Our Daily Bread Designs Patriotic Paper Collection.  The border and frame are from the ODBD Layered Lacey Squares die set, cut from Black card stock.

Artistic Outpost Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Artistic Outpost Design Team June Blog Hop! Each month, the fabulous designers at Artistic Outpost showcase projects created with various Artistic Outpost stamp sets.  This month, the Designers are sharing projects they created using the AO stamp sets found in the Holidays stamp category.

I created a vintage Christmas card using one of my favorite images from the Snowy Woods stamp set, along with dies from Our Daily Bread Designs.



The vintage santa from Snowy Woods, is stamped in Coffee Archival on a scrap of pattern paper, then die cut using the Circle Ornaments die set and layered on an Espresso panel that was die cut using the Matting Circles die set.  Both the Green and Mustard pattern paper panels are embossed with embossing folders, the Green panel was die cut using the frame die from the Flourished Star Pattern die set.  To embellish, I added Zva Creative Crystal Gems and a flower.
