Welcome to the first ever, Heartstrings Design Team Wednesday! I am so happy you decided to visit today because I have a lot of fun stuff to share with you. Our theme for today was to create something Red, White and Blue. The designers were given a variety of stamps to work with and allowed to choose whichever one inspired them. Let me preface everything by saying that the stamps were provided by, “My Heart Stamps for You”, our wonderful sponsor. Julie over at MHSFY was nice enough to donate the prize for our challenge today and along with that she has a special offer for everyone! If you visit her site during the next 2 weeks of the challenge and place an order with her, and mention you found her through Shelley (me)or Heartstring Designs (or the Design Team) she will include a free stamp in your order! Isn’t that fantastic?
But that is not all…somewhere on one of the Design Team blogs is another special giveaway. I encourage you to visit them all, find the second giveaway and follow the instructions to win!!
And last but in no way the least….we offer a challenge to all of you. After you have visited all the blogs, please come back here and enter our Red, White and Blue challenge. Please submit your very own Red, White and Blue creations to the linky below and you are automatically entered! Here is the prize!!
So without further ado…here we go!
This is my submission. I had a stamp of a little quilter and I turned the quilt into a flag , colored it with Copic markers (of course) and turned my little quilter into Betsy Ross! The background paper was embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, the ribbon trimmed edging was cut with a Fiskars edge cutter and my tag was merely curled a bit around a pencil to give it the “waving” banner effect. A few star embellishments, a little stickles and distressing and I feel like I am ready to light the fireworks and have a BBQ!
