Give Me Liberty...

...Lady Liberty, in fact, from Stampendous!  She's one of our newest stamps showing our patriotic spirit.  I've also used Free and Brave for my sentiment.  I love these two stamps together, it really appeals to my military pride as I previously served in the U.S. Army for 9 years of active duty.  It's nice to design for a company that appreciates our beautiful country as much as Stampendous does!  Here's my card using some fun Fran•táge technique:

Here's what I used to create this card:

Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink by Tsukineko®
Memento™ Toffee Crunch Ink by Tsukineko®
Tim Holtz® Antique Linen Distress Ink by Ranger®
Iced Cocoa Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Smoky Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives
Copic® Markers (N2; G00, G02, G24; Y13, Y17; T2, T4; B91; E42, E43)

Here's what I did to create this card:

Stamp main image and color, trim closely and set aside.
Stamp sentiment and trim to desired size and add distress ink.
Create an A2 card base with a tent fold and stamp with Vintage Note.
Create mats for both images and adhere all layers as shown.
Run embossing ink over areas desired, add embossing powder and heat.

So, whether you're creating cards or invitations for the upcoming Fourth of July or you simply want to thank a soldier for their service through Operation Write Home, these stamps are perfect for the job!  Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of crafting, creating time!
