Patriotic Decor (and another hidden freebie)

Want a quick little something to spruce up your mantle before the 4th of July? Here is a set that is so quick to make using the Patriotic Card Kit and Patriotic Quilt Stamp from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff:

I die cut the flowers with my Ellison Daisy die from red, white and blue cardstock and curled the petals before adhereing with hot glue.

The cool thing about the clipboard is that the papers and stamped element is just clipped, not glued on so you can redo it for each holiday!

This is quick and cheap to make, the stamp is $1 and the card kit is $2 but remember they are digital so you can print them as many times as you want! The clipboard and round box were from AC Moore for $1 each and the tin container with a candle was from the dollar tree. A decor piece for $6, not bad huh?

I used my Bic Mark-It markers to color the stamped image (Adobe Orange, Summer Melon, Rambunctious Red, Prairie Berry, Oceanview Blue, Misty Blue, Deep Sea Blue and Midnight Navy). I like to color a section with a lighter shade then outline it in a slightly darker shade so it will blend plus it is quick! I also used a Prismacolor marker {Brick White) for the white stripes and outlined it in Tiki Hut Tan. All the Bic Mark its can be found in the 36 pack, I get mine at Sam’s Club for $13 (yep, I’m a frugal crafter!) BTW I have no affiliation with the Bic company 😉
