Mountain Plains Crafters Summer Challenge 2015: Nautical or Patriotic


I have created two cards especially for the challenge over at Mountain Plains Crafters. I chose to go patriotic on both of my cards since the Fourth of July is right around the corner and I can send these cards out to friends and family. For my first card I used two holiday stamps from Taylored Expressions and layered the images up with some pretty patterned paper from Authentique's 6x6 Pride collection. I just love this fun and patriotic subway poster image!


For my second card I used the fun fireworks stamps from Lawn Fawn's Happy 4th stamp set and stamped them in red and blue and then added some shimmer by embossing them with some Enchanted Gold embossing powder by Ranger. Love the way it turned out. The cityscape was created using a die from Paper Smooches.
