Hello there!  July is my month to host at CAS Colours & Sketches, and I hope you’ll join in the fun and creativity there! 

As usual, we’re starting off the month with a color challenge. I’ve chosen a little different spin on the traditional red, white, and blue seen here in the United States on our July 4th Independence Day. I die cut stars from burgundy and navy cardstock and heat embossed the points of the stars in gold. The sentiment stamp was inked with markers so I could include both the navy and burgundy colors. I thought through a few different ideas for the main panel and the mats and card base before deciding on an offset panel with a thin mat.

Now it’s your turn to show us what you can make with these colors!  If you need more inspiration first, go visit the CC&S site and see what the rest of the design team has created.  Be sure to link your card at the CC&S site by 6:00 p.m. Eastern time on Monday, July 11.  We look forward to having you join us!

All supplies are from Stampin’ Up except where noted:
Stamp: Lexicon of Love
Cardstock: Bravo Burgundy, Night of Navy, Whisper White
Ink: Gold (ColorBox)
Other: Night of Navy and Bravo Burgundy markers; Star dies (Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps); gold embossing powder (Ranger)
