Just made this 6×6 scrapbook page….very quick and easy! You wouldn't think you could use a flower stamp to make fireworks, but I did! I stamped the top of the flower from the stamp set "Kind and Caring Thoughts", a Level 3 Hostess Set from the new Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog. I just used Versamark ink for both the watermarked (bluish) fireworks and also to emboss with the gold embossing powder. That provided the background. Then I wanted to use the Sizzlit Die "Sparkle" with my Big Shot to make the 3-D fireworks! The center needed something, so I punched some of the flowers from the Boho Blossoms Punch and inserted a large rhinestone brad in each. Now if only I had taken pictures!!
The fireworks were great, as they are every year! We go to the display put on by Stafford, TX which is always quite good, especially considering they are a small community in the Houston area. We like the smaller crowds and enjoy meeting our friends there in "our spot" every year. Traffic usually isn't too bad getting out….and we can even spot fireworks from other areas like Sugarland too! Hope you had a happy 4th!
