Blogger's Challenge #48 - Red White and Blue

The card in the last post was going to be my blogger's challenge card for this week but I changed my mind and decided to go the more traditional route. I also wanted to use some stamps that don't get much chance to see ink. The first card is all Stampin Up! stamps and punches.




Stamps: Classic Stars Jumbo Wheel, So Many Sayings and Headline Alphabet.

This next card was actually just created to use this ribbon I have had for a couple of years, lol.
The stamps are Studio G and Stampin Up!. The top portion is emboss resist on glossy white card stock.




And this one was just messing around with my coluzzle and a mix of Studio G and Stampin Up stamps.




Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend! Don't forget to be mindful of all the people who have and ARE fighting for us and our freedom!

Girl...3 CARDS! You must win the prize this week...lol. All of them are FABULOUS. I always forget about using my alphabet sets, but I love the look in your fist card. I'm a real sucker for stars so I'm particularly drawn to your second card...heck, they are all rockin'! Great job.
