Old Glory

Good Morning & Happy Sunday!

Hope your all having a nice weekend!
Yesterday, it was so muggy that I stayed in my pj's and stamped the day away!
Well, atleast until the storms came then I showered and we hit up the grocery store for a couple things! After supper I went back to clean up my mess and make room for another stamper.
Deb is coming over today to stamp a bit. We both need some girl time & some stamp therapy!
I have been working at my table for the last few days making Christmas cards using lots & lots of old retired stuff. I dug Frosty out the other day and inked him up! He was my very 1st Christmas stamp!
I used some old paper as well and loved every minute of it!

So before my day gets going I wanted to share my last 4th of July cards I made this past week.
I used an old set called Old Glory!

That big ole star was stamped and then fussy cut which was easy since the lines are pretty straight.
I am not a fussy cutting type of person but I was giddy when this was easily cut out!
It was popped up with Dimensionals and then I added the little "Celebrate" tag.
The stripes were stamped on a slant to add some interest. 
Lastly I added some red rhinestones for sparkle.
I love how vibrant the colors are!

Card Details:

Stamps: Old Glory (retired)
Ink: Night of Navy, Real Red
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Real Red, Whisper White
Accessories: Itty Bitty Framelits (retired), Red Rhinestones, Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

I had SO much fun pulling out my old stamps this past week and inking them up!
I went in search of a few idea's for these old ones but did not find much.
In the end I just left the creativity flow and the outcome was a surprising one!
Very happy with all my July 4th cards and even happier that they have all been mailed out in time for the recipient to get before the holiday! WooHoo!
That never happens!

My thoughts today....

Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful day!

Love are on a patriotic roll here! MAYBE I will find some stamping time today, since I am done mowing and I can take a break!!! I got a flag stamp from my sister last year and I think it's time to ink it up!
