Quick Quotes Red, White and You

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here today, it is the first Friday of the month and that means it is time to reveal the July Challenge. This month our theme is... Red White and Blue!

Be sure to stop back at the blog this weekend for the Challenge Winner Announcement for Friday Challenge 76 - "Masculine Cards or Projects".

I created a 6x6 4th of July project to sit on the mantel for years to come. 

Using Paper from several of the Quick Quotes sets I put this project together, and hope you enjoy it. 

Using Serenade QQP-SR103 I cut a 6x6 panel to cover my canvas.
Using Serenade QQP-SR102, Anchors Aweigh QQP-AW100, Adventure Awaits QQP-AD101, and a Pine Needle Die I ran each panel through my Big Shot and turned the cut upside down to simulate fireworks. 

I used my Canon Selphy to print a photo from our fireworks my husband set off this year. This machine is the easiest printer I have ever use. I just open the Canon Print app on my phone, choose the image I want to print and hit print. It goes to the printer and does its thing. 

I used Buttercup and Sunset Powderpuff inks to blend a sunset at the bottom of the 6x6 panel. I then used a small piece of the opposite side and stamped out Happy 4th of July using Royal Blue and Red Lipstick Powderpuff inks. I blended the Buttercup and Sunset along with Warm Grey over the top so that it would blend in with the background. This I cut with an oval die, and used foam dots to pop it up. 

I used double sided tape to adhere the fireworks, and the photo paper is actually a sticker.

I then found this flag banner that is leftover from a project my daughter did in middle school (11 years ago) and added it along the top. 

I really hope you enjoyed this project. I had a great time making it and again plan on setting it out each year.
