The entire Design Team is featuring projects for the waltz. You should be arriving here from Clare Buswell's blog but you can always go back to Claire Brennan's blog for the entire list.
I could barely wait to ink up both sets! But with Flag Day and July 4th quickly approaching, I had to use USA 1776 first. I stamped the little star pattern that was made to coordinate with the largest star pre-cut from the Spellbinders Stars 5 Nestabilities set.
I continue my little obsession with denim and woodgrain paper! I also made some red stripes using the plaid pattern from the previously-released set Pic-Nic Patterns.
The medallion was made with some denim patterned paper. Love the beautiful font of this sentiment with the cute "stitched" number 4 from USA 1776!
Up next is the sweet Country Labels 4!
That little cherry stole my heart right away. It made me think of this adorable paper from Melissa Frances called "Kitschy Kitchen!"
I cut the outside label with Spellbinders Labels 4 Nestabilities, and then cut and paper pieced the inside stitched label and popped it up on dimensionals. The little cherry is colored with Tim Holtz Distress markers. Love how it looks like a teeny watercolored image :)!
Don't forget about the traditional Release Day contest! One random comment from all of the DT members' blogs will be chosen and the prize is a stamp set of choice! You will have until June 1st at 11:59 PM (GMT), 5:5 9AM Central, 3:59 AM Pacific and 6:59 AM Eastern to leave comments. The winner will be posted Claire’s blog on June 3rd.
Be sure to keep your eye on Claire's blog for the month of June! There will be projects featured each week using both USA 1776 and Country Labels 4.
