Are you having fun yet??  There are so many beautiful stamps this month that it was hard to pick one favorite, but I decided on the Proudly Patriotic set for some 4th of July fun.  Come along and let me show you have it was created!!  First I needed to create my background and choose to dry and heat emboss my background paper.  Using a Cuttlebug embossing folder the white cardstock was embossed, while the cardstock was still on the embossing folder I inked the raised areas using a brayer and versamark ink.  The fireworks were then covered using Golden Sparkle, Firecracker Red, Silver Lightening and Cerulean Star embossing powders.  The powders were then heat set.  Wow I really loved how pretty this turned out.  You can find a tutorial Here on how to create this look!

Here is a closer look at the pretty background.  Around the outer layer sparkle was added using 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and Sassy Silver glitter.  The step was repeated using 1/4" Tear-ific Tape  for the inner layer with the Princess Anna Royal used for the sparkle.  

The image was stamped and colored using copic markers.  Fussy cut out and glittered using the Nuvo Small Glue Pen, Sparkling Snow and Sassy Silver glitter. The flag was placed on the background paper using foam tape. The sentiment was stamped with red ink and glitterd by tracing over the letter with the small glue pen, glittering with Fire Engine Red and Princess Anna Royal glitter.  It was then fussy cut around placed on top of the flag with foam dots.  a small red pull ribbon was placed behind the sentiment.

The stars were all die cut using a Sizzix's die glittered using Fire Engine Red, Princess Anna Royal, and Sparkling Snow glitter.  They were placed on the card using foam dots.  Small drops of White Crystal Drops were added to the centers.  

I really loved how this turned out can't wait to make this for my 4th of July cards this year!!  I have also created a scrapbook layout using this digi set and I will leave you with a sneak peek of it.  Be sure to stop back by to see the finished layout.

Have fun on the hop your next stop is the Corner Garden surprise !!
