Celebrate the USA

Hello everyone! If you live here in the USA, you are probably planning to celebrate the birth of our country this weekend by putting out the flag, having a barbeque, or watching some fireworks. Wherever you live, I hope this red, white, and blue card will inspire you. Plus I hope you enjoy this special offer: you can get 15% off the products that I used to make this card. Keep reading to learn how I made this card and to learn more about the special offer!


To make the stars:

1. I started with blank stars from the FUNdamental Stars Technique Tiles.


2. I rubbed a blue ink pad across each of the stars until they were completely covered with blue ink.


3. Using my scissors, I embossed lines down the stars. (Note: It works best when you use your hand to hold the tile down as you etch the lines onto the stars.)


4. The end result looks like this.


We'd love to see your take on this technique. Post your project and post a link to it on TT's Facebook page. You can also send us a link to your project via Twitter (@TTStamps).

How did you make the Harlequin look so distressed? I love the look, need to know!

Hi Sara!
The stamp actually has the distressing built into the design of it, which makes it look oh so cool and distressed looking when stamped. I've found you can make it look even more distressed by not fully covering the stamp with ink. You can also stamp it on an uneven surface so not all of the ink transfers from your stamp to your paper. While us stampers normally would call that a mistake, I think it's actually pretty cool to do that stamp like this that has a distressed feel! It makes it feel so much more rustic!

I love all things patriotic. This is GORGEOUS!
