Sunday Stamps! Challenge #157

Hello, and happy Sunday! Today, starts a new challenge at Sunday Stamps!  We are working with patriotic colors this week.  Check out this weeks challenge:

The Birthday Memories Bundle is new to me, and I couldn't resist using it for this weeks challenge. I just love the image of the little girl and the fact that most of the images in the Birthday Delivery stamp set have matching framelits.  

Card supplies:
Birthday Delivery Bundle (145294), Brick Wall Embossing Folder (138288), Decorative Ribbon Border punch (143716), Black Baker's Twine (141682), Pearl Jewels (144219), White Craft pad (145406), Basic Black ink (140931), Real Red ink (126949), Smoky Slate ink (131179), Marina Mist ink (126962), Blushing Bride ink (131172), Soft Suede ink (126978), Black Watercolor pencil (141709), Aqua Painter (103954), Thick Whisper White cardstock (140272), Night of Navy cardstock (100867), Marina Mist cardstock (119682), Whisper White cardstock (100730) and Dimensionals (104430).

To create the chalkboard looking background, I dragged my White Craft pad across the raised side of the Brick Wall Embossing Folder before running the cardstock through my Big Shot.  As a side note: I used the NEW mini Stampin' UP! Dimensionals under her birthday hat for perfect placement.  I am so happy that I don't have to cut my Dimensionals in half anymore!

For the sentiment: I covered part of the "Lets Celebrate Your Day" image with a sticky note before stamping it onto the Whisper White cardstock. I love to do this as opposed to cutting my stamps apart.

Now its time to head over to the Sunday Stamps! challenge blog and see what the other design team members have created with these patriotic colors.   We would love to see you play along with us! Entries must be submitted by  Friday, July 28, 2017.  Happy stamping!
