Are you excited that the 2014 Winter Olympics is about to officially begin in Sochi? I know we will be watching many hours of the competitions over the next two weeks or so. The Olympics Opening Ceremony will be tonight. I always think it is interesting to watch the Opening Ceremony where we really don’t know that many of the athletes as contrasted to the Closing Ceremony where many have become celebrities and familiar to us.So in honor of the Winter Olympics, I have made a red, white and blue card for the USA team! For the banner, I stamped an image from the first photopolymer stamp set Stampin’ Up! introduced, Designer Type, which is sold out now, but of course you could use something else. The “Dare To Dream” sentiment is from the stamp set Loving Thoughts. The stars were punched with the Small Heart Punch. Also, the banner has a little paper piecing on it. That means I stamped the banner image on a piece of Brights Designer Series Paper Stack, cut out the pieces to fit on the stamped banner and adhered them. The banner is cut out and mounted on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals with little Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine bows. While the Winter Olympics games are going on, get out some red, white, and blue paper or maybe gold and silver and make something in honor of the Olympic athletes and games! Need any supplies?
