"Heartstrings Design: Red/White/Blue"

Hi all!  I am super excited to announce this is the first official challenge from Heartstring Design Team and our sponsor My Heart Stamps for You (MHS4Y).  For this challenge the theme is 'Red, White, and Blue.'  A few things to follow to jump in on all the fun and join this challenge at a chance to win a prize.
  1. Go to Heartstring Design blog to join in on the challenge to have a chance at the prize.
  2. That challenge begins today June 16 and closes on June 30.
  3. If you go to MHS4Y & place an order, our sponsor is giving a free stamp with each order.

On that note, I had so much fun creating this design and getting it just right to share with everyone.  I used Kraft Paper for the card base and added different colors of red, white, and blue to coordinate with my angel that was colored in using colored pencils (I used three shades of each color to really emphasize the shading).  The angel is a stamp from My Heart Stamps for You.  I used the stars for added interest to emphasize a celebration.  Around the edges I used a blue pen to create foe stitching around the edges and I used my blender pen to create the dots that led up to the stars.  Finally, I used a Hero Arts Stamp for sentiment.

Beth, I always get new ideas from your cards. You are so creative. I love this! I like how you used the corner punch on just one corner! That really caught my eye:) The angel is really pretty:)

Mariam Satchell

What a stunning card! I LOVE the coloring and the brads!!!!!! And I noticed the one rounded corner too - great touch!


I LOVE how you stamped, colored and cut... It never crossed my mind, I really think is a great idea. I also love the brads and how you placed them. Not only did I noticed the rounded corner like Mariam did, but I notice how you fliped/rolled the wings out!!! Love it!!!
