Die Cut Challenge - A Patriotic "Thank You"

Hi, to all our Get Inky! family and friends!!!

Kathy here to share with you a project I did a few weeks ago as a "Thank You" for a very special lady in my life . . . and with her favorite colors being Patriotic, what better stamp set to use that the new Patriotic mini stamp set from Get Inky! Stamps. And since the new challenge over at Get Inky! Challenge being "die cuts", I also thought this card would be a great way to show you that not all die cuts are about flowers or lacey shapes.  There are actually die cuts from Spellbinders that cut A2 cards (Spellbinders Nestabilities Card Creator Basic A & Basic B), which is what I used for parts of this card.

Supplies:
"Patriotic" mini stamp set by Get Inky! (aka Blue Moon Creations)
Cobalt Archival Ink by Ranger
Ruby ink by Close to My Heart
Smooch Pearlized ink in Gold/Yellow and Red
"Holly Jolly” brad pearls by TPC

After stamping my star with blue ink, I colored it with Smooch Pearlized ink and did the outline of the star in gold . . . it is light enough that it is hard to get a good picture of it, but it's there.  I then fussy-cut it and glued it to my card with Helmar Scrap Dots 3D adhesive. All-in-all I think it turned out to be a pretty simple CAS card.

Remember, you still have time to get your "die cut" projects in to be eligible for the prize from Get Inky! Challenge! (aka BMCCS) . . . whether it be flowers, stars, lacey shapes or even an A2 card shape. In fact, there's even an A2 Fancy RibbonThreader die cut from Spellbinders that I am dying (no pun intended) to use. :)

So let's Get Inky!!!

Till the next time I'm up in the night.
