PATRIOTIC RELEASE – American Hero – by Holly McMillen

Good Monday morning!

We are back today with a stunning card from Holly using our NEW stamp/die set – Old Glory. The cards we showed you yesterday to debut this release were very white and clean. Today Holly went with woodgrain and kraft which lends itself to more of a charming rustic or vintage feel. It is stunning! Take a look:

I love the look of the flag/map stamped onto kraft and then colored.

The bunting effect is wonderful here, created with a border die and patriotic themed papers from the America paper pad by Echo Park.

Here’s a closer look at all that lovely detail.

Holly used a white gel pen to make those stars on the flag really POP.

The blue and red portions of the flag were colored with Copic markers.

The three stars in the corner are also included in the die set and can be used alone (as Holly did) or with the star stamps included in the Patriotic Bundle Trio.

A wonderful card to give to YOUR American Hero!

There is such a nice variety of sentiments included in both Old Glory and Patriotic Sentiments that you will always be able to find just the right one!

You can find Holly’s post on her blog here.

Holly used:

Stamps: Old Glory by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps

Dies: Patriotic Stars & Stripes (Old Glory) by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps

Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Border One

Spellbinders Standard Circles - Large, Small

Paper: America by Echo Park

Ribbon: Baker’s Twine

Embellishments: Enamel Dots – ON SALE!

Adhesives: Scor Tape, 3D Foam Squares


These are the two new sets Holly used today.

Old Glory Stamp Set and Patriotic Stars & Stripes (Old Glory) Steel Dies

Here are the two NEW sets along side our original Patriotic Sentiments.

These sets all coordinate and work together beautifully.

The die set functions well with both sets as the die can be used with its coordinating stamp or as a stand alone die of the United States.

The two largest stars in the die set fit the 2 largest stars in Patriotic Sentiments.

The smallest star in the die set fits the small star in Old Glory.

Of course, the stars, too, can be used as stand alone dies without any stamps.

These items are all available individually or in a variety of convenient bundles.

We’ve made it easy for you to pick up just what you need!
