Patriotic + Urban Grunge

Hello! Welcome to the final day of Taylored Expressions May Sneak Peeks! All products will be released tomorrow, Thursday, May 5 @ 7 AM PDT.

My first card features the new Marching On die. I die cut the parade marchers in Oreo to create a silhouette look. I replaced the banner with the smallest banner from Stitched Banner Stacklets and embossed the sentiment from Many Minis - Holidays. I also used the Bistro Lights Cutting Plate and Build a Scene - On the Road dies to create my scene.

Supplies used:

Next is a simple card using the American Flag Cutting Plate and a free PDF that you can download. The PDF contains words to America the Beautiful, spaced to fit in between the stripes of the flag. I printed the PDF on my laser printer and used my Minc machine to foil the words (hard to see in the photo!).

Supplies used:

Finally, I have two artsy cards made with Bold Brushstrokes (sentiments) and Stroke of Genius 2. Both backgrounds were created by stamping various Distress Inks onto watercolor paper, spritzing with water, then stamping again. The sentiments are framed with the new Stitched Frame Stacklets. The one below also features Little Bits - Spray Paint.

The next one is similar in design to the one above. I swapped the spray paint for Little Bits - Trash Can.

Supplies used:
