{Simon Says Stamp} Patriotic Challenge


I'm so excited to be the Guest Designer at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog for July! Please join me every Wednesday this month for a new challenge. This week's challenge is to create a Patriotic card using products from My Favorite Things. I bought the Boy Meets Girl Die-namics when they were first released and my son and his friends have had the best time playing with them. It's time I blogged something with them, right? ;) I paired them up with stamps from Lawn Fawn's Happy 4th mini stamp set and patterned paper from Crate Paper's DIY Shop and Maggie Holmes 6 x 6 paper pads. After heat embossing the sentiment, I used a blending tool and distress ink on it to create a more rustic tone. All my supplies are listed below.


I hope you will play along with us this July!
