FOSTV - 4th July

It is great working with Marks Finest Papers and I love the stamp sets but challenges like today's always give me something of a well challenge! 

Celebrating American Indepedence Day is rather odd when you are British as I found out when we visited the Boston Tea Party Ship - yes they did pick on us a little - no actually it was quite a lot!!!

I made this card using Island Life, a set launched last week, and using the snowflake from the Ice and Snow stamp set to make my fireworks.  As you can see I made it a celebratory card so I can use it for any good news.  The fireworks were stamped and embossed with white and then coloured over with pencils.  I used a white distress marker to add the 'sparks' in the sky.

Most of you need no excuse to celebrate 4th July so head on over to Friends of Speedy TV and join in this week's fun.  We would love to see what you create.  There is another lovely set you could win called Oh Happy Day


  1. Using snowflakes was very creative! Great card.

  2. Ooh, Janine, pretty fireworks and how creative of you to use the snowflake stamp - as it looks wonderful!!

  3. So clever! Those snowflakes work wonderfully as fireworks! Sorry it is so awkward to create a card for a holiday you don't celebrate!

  4. Janine, you are so those 'snowflake' fireworks. And, the lighthouse to go along with them is perfect. You're a good sport celebrating our holiday with us.

  5. What a clever way to use those snowflakes!!!


I love to hear your thoughts - please come back soon.
