Happy Birthday to America!! God Bless the Red-White & Blue and to all of our military men and women who serve our country proudly.
Today's card creation is a super fun one as it shows off a couple of different styles and techniques. The Biggest Wish stamp set and Stitched Stars Dies are the highlighting the main attraction to show off the Red-White & Blue color scheme.
The first technique to display is the fabulous watercoloring with Stampin' Blends and Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol. One important note...you'll want to purchase and use the 91% Alcohol content product in order to get the desired results of the watercolor effect. When I used a lower percentage, the colors ran a lot more and ended up bleeding and mixing more than I desired.
Check out this boomer of a fun-fold technique!! It's been name the "Pinwheel Tower" card design/fold. This interactive card definitely proclaims a huge WOW factor. It's super easy to assemble, too. The Basic White Stitched Stars Die rests upon a pattern of designer paper from the FREE with qualifying party called Pattern Party. If you'd like to Host an in-person or virtual Stampin' Up! party to earn the 48-sheet pack for free, give me a holler!
To add a little more festivity for the occasion, use the little stars that come out of the die to decorate one of the side panels.
The sentiments from the Biggest Wish set adds on a whole other level of fun! The 'Birthday' sentiment was inked in Misty Moonlight and stamped off two times before stamping the third time onto the Basic White strip. This was to make sure the 'happy', inked in Real Red, would stand out from the big bold lettering of the first stamp.
For all the details and step-by-step instructions on how to create this card, watch the replay of my Facebook Live. I get together with crafters for a new episode of Sunday Stampin' Dreams each Sunday at 2:30P.
I hope you give this fun-fold and coloring technique a try! You are going to be addicted, I'm sure! These interactive cards are always a big bang for you and your recipients. Happy 4th; and stay safe, my friends!
