CCT Stars and Stipes

Good Morning! This week on Cute Card Thursday we are celebrating with stars and stripes in honour of our friends in the USA who will be whooping it up on 4th July!

But, you know me .. .. first off I had to find some starry or stripey paper so went rummaging, and found this old Papermania Christmas pad with these two sheets that I thought could be used any time of year.  Then for more stars and stripes I decided on this LOTV Wizard with his stripey top and stars on his wizard's hat and cloak.  I've coloured with my Copics and what looks grey in the picture is actually brown!  Still trying to get the colours true on the camera and this time my little lad is looking rather pale and washed out, not so in real life. I've fussy cut him out and layered him up with 3d foam onto the stripey mat, and layered that onto the starry background.

Here's the card I made:

My youngest grandson likes pink! So this will be just right for his Halloween card.  I've decorated with green ribbon from my stash and punched stars, and a die cut swirly embellishment from a couple of Marianne Design doily sets, you get the big one in LR0129 and the smaller one in LR0130.  The die cut 'Eeek' is from a Penny Black die set I got on sale recently, first time I've used that brand and I must say, even though it is very fine and fiddly to layer up, it cut beautifully in my old Cuttlebug.  I used another of the dies from the set on the inside of the card, here:

And I found the little star stamp in my mini wood collection .. .. I've been digging out all kinds of stuff that I'd put away at the back of the cupboard so there will be some different 'old but new' things to share with you soon!

The Loves Rubber Stamps challenge is to include some die cut elements with your project, so that's an easy challenge for me!

And at the Addicted to Stamps blog they are playing bingo!  I have the bottom line of ribbon, dies and layers.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek, and hope to see you again soon!
