Feeling Patriotic for Friday Mashup

Happy Friday! A big thank you to everyone that joined The Friday Mashup  200th celebration! It was fun to see the past challenges everyone chose and to check out all the blogs! Make sure you checked the announcement of winners on The Friday Mashup blog, I know people are excited to see if they won prizes from any of the great sponsors!

We're back with a new mashup and this week it's coming to us from Amy. She's a new member to the DT and this is her first time bringing us a mashup so make sure you stop by and play along!

Amy would like us to use the colors Rich Razzleberry,Pacific Point and Smoky Slate. She would also like to see some type of see through element on our project.

I haven't used the 'For Your Country' set in a while and it's one of my favorites so I thought now would be a good time. My husband and I are both Navy veterans and I thought these colors would be good for a patriotic card since about 95% of our friends are either still in the military or have some other type of military connection.

I used Smoky Slate and the Gorgeous Grunge set to stamp images and splatter on the front of the card, and then I took Pacific Point and added additional splatter (that's the Navy being represented :) ). For the bottom of the card I adhered some Rich Razzleberry DSP and added 2 Smoky Slate candy dots. My see through element is a piece of vellum with the sentiment stamped on it.

Come on by The Friday Mashup and see what the rest of the DT did, and then play along with us!

  • Create a project using Rich Razzleberry, Smoky Slate & Pacific Point*". 
  • Create a project with a "See-thru element (window, acetate, vellum). 
  • or Mash it Up! and create a project "using the colors above and a see thru element".
