Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: Red, White, Blue and a Star too!

This week at the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge is the theme Red, White, Blue and a Star too! This week our sponsor is our very own, Donna, one of the DT from Stamptacular Sunday!

So after much thinking, I decided to do a star box (tutorial here). This box was really easy to put together and if you look at my straight on picture you'll see why it got it's name...it looks like a star! This is a pretty tall box 7 1/2" tall to be exact and lots of fun to make! I did a bit of sponging around the edges to antique it a bit, but other than that it's pretty straight forward, the "confetti" behind the little Sam is bits of mylar streamers that I cut up... Thanks for looking, recipe is below and be sure to check out the rest of the DT's creations, lots of fun stuff this week!

Recipe:

  • Stamps: All by Stampendous Patriotic Pair
  • Paper: dp The Paper Studio, Cardstock all from my stash (and YES I HAVE A HUGE stash! LOL)
  • Ink: Memento black, Tim Holtz Antique Photo
  • Other: Scor-Pal, Copics, String, Streamers, Sponge
