Step-by-Step Wednesday - Green Team #14-25 - Fourth of July

Week 25
June 24, 2014 to June 30, 2014
4th of July

Hello everyone.  Can you believe it's the last week of June?  Where did the time go? 

Are you ready to celebrate the USA's birthday?  To help kick off the festivities Cuttin' and Stampin' is creating 4th of July cards/projects.

The Cuttin' and Stampin' design team is using Pebbles Americana paper collection and stamp set this week. 

6x6 paper pad

Journal cards

Wood mount stamps

Chipboard pieces

For this weeks Step-by-step Wednesday project, I have created a patriotic tag.  Our family celebrates our Nations birthday each year with friends, fireworks and fun!  I will be using this tag on a scrapbook layout!

Here is my finished tag!  I LOVE it!!

Started with a 3 x 6 rectangle of one of the blue papers from the Americana collection.  Rounded some corners and then inked them all with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain.

I then grabbed the postmark stamp and a Stampin Up White ink pad.  I created the tag background.

The pocket was created by using Paper Smooches Denim & Daisies die set and stamps.  The red checkered paper is also from the Americana collection.

According to my 7 year old daughter "everything is better with sparkles!"  To which I completely agree!  So stickles it is! 

The sticks are nothing more than a shish-ka-bob skewer from my kitchen!  You could cut it all nice and neat, but for my needs (and for lack of a cutting utensil handy), I just snapped them at an appropriate length!  Some glue dots and pop-up squares later and I have a pinwheel and flag!

This was super fun to create!  My daughter did have some opinion on the star in the background!  Brad, eyelet and ribbon are all from my stash.
Now it's your turn to create something special for the 4th of July and enter it in this weeks contest.   Add your link Here and have a link on your post that leads back to us.  

Thanks for playing along.

Until next time!  Have fun creating!



  1. Like the Patriotic red/white/blue Tag with festive pinwheels & such. Like the use of the skewers. I may lift this idea. I have skewers I use for kebobs and what is a few less for kebobs or an excuse to buy more skewers.
