Celebrating Memorial Day

Hello crafty friends,

Last weekend I celebrated Memorial Day by crafting.  I made these three cards with three of the new release dies.

on Card 1, the Tall Victorian House Whisper die stands proudly against a store purchased flag die cut by K&Company and some red stamped fireworks.  I really doesn't get much easier than this and yet I think this card is very striking.  

on Card 2,  the Vintage Clock Whispers die takes the focus.  I surrounded the clock with three stamped patriotic images and the "thinking of you" sentiment from the Everyday Complements die.  And yes, that's a "clock" button in the center of the clock.


on Card 3, is not really a card, but it took me the longest to make of all three :)

I created a red, white and blue Steampunk Hat Whispers die, by die cutting it three times and paper piecing it.   I'm thinking this would make a great pin/brooch.

Thanks for stopping bye today.  Remember most any die can be used most any theme.  They can be the star of the show or just a supporting player.  Until next time

    1. Thank you Shona :) I have to admit the first card is very eye catching, and it's the one that took the least amount of time. I have it put aside give my Mother-In-Law at her 4th of July party.
