Show Your Patriotism! (Blog Hop)

Welcome to the Show Your Patriotism! Blog Hop with members of  Kim's "Stampers With An Attitude" team.  Hope you enjoy our patriotic 'art with an attitude.'  

If you have come here from Jen's 'Roxybonds' blog, you are on the right path!  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!

To create this card, the Statue of Liberty from the Home of the Brave set was stamped using Olive ink on White Daisy card stock.  It was then cut by hand to mount with 3D foam tape on the card.  

On August 1, CTMH is releasing a brand-new Cricut cartridge, named Artbooking.  With 700 new images, grouped together by themes and also 10 theme mini books, this is another "must have" cartridge for Cricut users.  The base of the 5"x7" card is black cardstock.  A piece of patterned paper from the ProPlayer packet is used as a background for the star frame which was cut using "K" key on the Artbooking cartridge.  The word 'Liberty' was cut using the "J" key.  To add a bit of sparkle to the card, the entire frame is covered with Black Shimmer Trim.    Some red and blue Sparkles highlight the stars. 

You can see the complete frame in this photo, even though it was cut from Black cardstock instead of the red patterned paper from the ProPlayer kit as on the card.  Also shown are the pages for both the "J" and the "K" key on the Artbooking cartridge.  As you can see, these are all patriotic themed images. 

This month only, Close To My Heart is offering three special patriotic stamps. The Home of the Brave stamp set includes a fabulous Statue of Liberty, a flag, stars, fireworks, and some wonderful sentiments. Strong and Free is devoted to our Canadian neighbors, and Courage honors the U.S. Military services.  Show your support of trooops and country with these patriotic stamp sets. $5 from every sale benefits a charitable military support organization. 

Now "Hop" on over to Denise's 'Inspired By D' blog to see her work!  Be sure to visit all the "Stampers With An Attitude" participating blogs to get some great crafting inspiration and other fun ideas!    

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
