Stampers Dozen - Home of the Brave

Hello Stampers,
WELCOME to another edition of the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop! The theme this month is "Home of the Brave"  (aka USA)  What did you think about Carol Payne's contribution!?! She is so inspirational.

I have done a Patriotic Sampler for you this month. Of course the colors are Red, White and Blue. Well, that is: Night of Navy, Real Red and Whisper White. This is an 8" x 8" layout. The Red Glimmer Paper is 7" x 7" and the Whisper White is 6-1/2" x 6-1/2". Each mat is 2" x 2" and the smaller piece is 1-7/8" square. I LOVE the new stamp set "For Your Country" in the 2014-2015 annual catalog! Three of the images are from that set. I also used the new Rotary Stamp to spell FREEDOM and randomly stamped that on the lower left piece. The items needed are listed on the bottom of this post. I LOVE the new alphabet thinlits!!!!  The only thing on this sampler that is quasi-current are the googly eyes on Uncle Sam. They are still available on the clearance rack in the Ghoulish Googlies Designer Printed Kit

I hope this sampler inspires you to make one of your own!  You can also use the squares to create cards. 
Happy Fourth of July everyone!!

  1. very clever. I just love Uncle Sam. I can't wait to make my own! I did start the project using the Bootiful Occasions stamp set for a red, white and blue boot with red glitter stars. Thanks for sharing your project
