Patriot Pride

July 4th is special for a lot of reasons to me.  I have always been partial to the holiday, I love the fireworks, the american pride, the BBQ's, etc.  In fact I love it so much, it is also my wedding anniversary.  My husband and I are coming up on 11 years.  That seems both so long ago and just like yesterday at the same time.  Anyways, I love creating for this holiday and today I have a very special home decor piece I created using a printer's tray I got on clearance!  Love when that happens, right?

My color palette is Real Red, Night of Navy, Tip Top Taupe, Whisper White and touches of silver.  For the first three panels, I used the masks and stamped the Layered Letters on a Deco Label die cut.

Here I made a little banner using the Banner Banter stamp and punch.  I added a little bit of the silver glimmer paper.  

I made a little Uncle Sam punch art using the scallop circle, circle, word window and star punch.  This was so easy and could easily be added to a card.

This flag was made with the Work of Art stamp set and the star confetti punch.  Also super easy and could easily be used on a card.

I kept this one simple, a little of the Tip Top Taupe lace and the word America stamped with the letters from the Calling All Heroes stamp set.

For this panels, I just added some star die cuts to the real red background.  

The sentiment is from the Project Life stamp set Remember This and I embossed it with Silver embossing powder on the Night of Navy card stock.  

Here I embossed the Tip Top Taupe with the Lucky Stars embossing folders and added some Petite Petals stamped in Real Red and Night of Navy.

I really like how this panel turned out.  The firework image is actually from Summer Silhouettes.  I added some Red Dazzling Details and the Boom Boom comes from the Groovy Love set.    

Here I just wrapped some of the Night of Navy seam binding ribbon and added a silver glimmer paper sweetheart punch.

Thanks for looking!  I really loved making this.  It was fun finding other used for stamps and punches.  Did you check out the other Patriotic Inspired projects from the team over at SSI!  


  1. Happy Anniversary to you and your husband! I have 2 empty trays and now have been inspired to start creating some items to fill them with! Thank you for sharing Jennifer! :)
