STARS & STRIPES - DOODLEBUG

Hey there, I'm super excited that Doodlebug Design Inc. sent the Baker's Dozen their newest lines to play with!  I {heart} Doodlebug!  I'll be sharing two projects today that were made with their Stars & Stripes Essentials Kit.  If you're interested, all of Doodlebug's new lines are available in the Taylored Expressions store.  I can't wait to use this paper to make my 90 year-old father-in-law a card for Veteran's Day.  He's a disabled WWII Veteran and this paper will be perfect in helping me honor him!

I had a blast coloring Daisy Bouquet last week, so I decided to ink it up again!  It was stamped with Tuxedo Black on Neenah card stock, colored with Copic markers, fussy cut then popped up on foam.  Clear glaze was applied to the vase to make it look more like glass.  The big star is a Nestie that was ran through a Xyron then sprinkled with glitter.  The sparkles in combination with the fabulous paper really brings this card to life, don't you think?  The small scattering of stars are the Seeing Stars Taylored Die.  The rhinestones on the stars were included in the Doodlebug kit.  


Here's the inside...matching paper and a few more of the die cut stars complete the card.

The second card uses more of the Doodlebug papers (did I mention how much I love Doodlebug *grin*) and the TE set called A Day in Paradise.  I just recently bought this set and couldn't wait to use it!  Like the last card, the cottage was stamped with Tuxedo Black on Neenah, colored with Copic markers then fussy cut.  Clear glaze was applied to all of the windows to make them appear like glass.  Love that stuff!  The flag pole was a strip of Neenah and the flag itself was one of the flags from the Stars & Stripes paper that was cut and glued into place after being shaped with my fingers.  I love the look of the fireworks exploding in the night sky!  Rhinestones were placed into the centers of each of the fireworks.
