Welcome to the Scrapbook News & Review “Oh Say Can You See” July Blog Hop.  I am so happy you are able to spend some time with us hopping around to see all the wonderful cards for this challenge.  If you continue reading my post, you will find a mini tutorial as to how I created my card.  Tutorials are posted every Tuesday.

There are a whopping 95 blog hop participants.  You can start at the beginning of the hop by starting at Scrapbook News & Review.  If you came from Winnie’s Creations, you’re on the right track.  Travelling all the way from Winnie’s blog in Norway, you had a long trip, so grab an iced coffee and sit a spell.  Shelly Skala is the next participant so scoot over and visit her very fun blog, Jaspere’s Little Corner.

A little word about my image–it is one of the stamps I designed and can be purchased at Sunflowers and Dragonflies Creative Designs.

Wow, look at the blog candy up for grabs!

For a chance to win the 4th of July cake stamp, simply leave me a comment.  Tutorial suggestions are welcome.  The winner of the blog candy will also work with me to come up with two custom-made stamps.  The stamps will include a return address label, and a “made by” stamp for the back of your card.

After colouring the image, I cut star shapes with my Cricut.

To add interest to the stars, they were run through the Cuttlebug with a swirly template.

Next, I distressed the edges with orange ink.

Card front is 5″ x 5″.  It was run through the Cuttlebug twice to completely cover the front with the dot pattern.

With a stylus I gently pushed the back of the holes so the seam on the front would be completely gone.  Cool, eh?

Lots of pop dots make all the layers pop.
