Red White Kaboom! Hop


Welcome to the Red, White, Kaboom! Blog Hop!  Happy 4th of July!  We hope you are having a great holiday and thanks for spending a little time with us today.  You should have come from Theresa. If not, go back and start the hop at Alicia's blog.  We hope you enjoy our creative efforts we have to share today.  Enjoy your holiday!



For my project today, I created a fun 4th of July card. All the paper I used came from my scrap stash and is either Close to My Heart or Recollections. I used the Artiste Cricut cartridge to cut my pinwheel shapes out and then I used the coordinating pinwheel stamp set for my stars and stripes. I inked them using ruby & outdoor denim. The yellow pinwheel "holder" is inked in honey. I stamped that and then hand cut it out. I have the top part sitting on the card with pop dots. The blue stripes does spin as well! Let's celebrate came from the same set as the pinwheels.

Ingredients:
Cricut Artiste Cartridge
Close to my Heart Pinwheel stamp of the month

What a great card. When I first looked I thought you cut the pinwheel out of themed papers and matted in white. What a neat idea to stamp them. It looks great. I'm a new follower and will be back.
