It is a little late but This challenge is in Honor of Memorial Day.

Happy Birthday America 2011

With Memorial Day already over with all I could think of was Happy Birthday America. Memorial Day or July 4th I’m so proud of our Soldiers each and every one of then. So I created this card. Theme of the challenge is they want to see STARS in Honor of Memorial Day, This is for the Challenge #9 at SCACD Friends with Heart Challenge Blog. You need to use one of the stamps that they sell at Susana’s Custom Art and Card Design Store, I love the stamps she sells you should stop by and see all the wonderful ones she has in the store and she also has a lot of other things also. The stamp I used is from Victoria Case and is called “CELEBRATE”. The paper I used was Cryogen Heavenly white that is my favorite. I stamped the stamp with Memento ink tuxedo black. I used a Spellbinder Big Scalloped Ovals Large to cut the cake out. The paper I used in the background is from Die Cuts with a View.

I punched the stars out with the Funky foam. That foam has so much glitter and it looks so pretty. I cut the sentiment out of paper.

I tried to make one of those banners that people hang in front of their house.

I’m playing with my new toy. I just got Tim Holtz Alterations sizzix Decorative strip Rosettes it has 2 sizes. The upper one is the larger one and this one is the small one. I did not want to big of ones because then I can not put then on my cards, this size is perfect.

This is it, the stamped image. The copic colors I used are R21, R22, R24, R27, R29, B21, B23, B24, B26. I used the Gellie Roll Clear star. Spica colors sky blue, orange, chocolate, yellow, red, melon and olive. i-Rock come in crystal or studs. I think they are made by imaginisce called hot rocks. i-Rock has a melting tool and what you do is put these little studs where you want then and then you use the heat tool and the top of the studs or crystals and maybe count to 5 seconds and the heat tool melts the glue that is under the studs and they are on your project. I got then at Michaels. I have had mine  for awhile but I have not used then so I better get then out and use then. Trying to use all my things I have.

I hope you are having a great week end. Thanks for stopping by.
