A burst of July 4th inspiration from our Crew Team!



We're just a week away from the July 4th holiday! Are you stocked up on your sparklers and snacks? Have you submitted your project for our 4th of July challenge?
 
Our Crew Team designers are BURSTING with ideas for you! Check them out below:
 
Kendra Sand made this tribute to the USA using our Red White And Blue set. We love how she used the stick of the sparkler in the set to make the border accents in red. She also used red rhinestones and some dabs of Stardust Gelly Roll Glitter Pen to give the fireworks that extra ooh ahh! Glittery embossing on the USA and a little peek of our red silk ribbon behind the star are festive finishing touches.

You may have gotten a glimpse of Linda Lapotka's card below when we issued our July 4th challenge, but it's definitely worth another look! With its embossed white stars and silver-glittered sparkler as a focal point, Linda's card really shines. Along with Red White and Blue, Linda also used the Corrugated Box background on the bottom of the card to complete that complete stars and stripes feel.



Katherine Schmitt's card below will really get your July 4th picnics and other plans in motion! The appropriately colored red, white and blue daisies from our Oops a Daisy set are all mounted on our Action Wobble springs, making them wobble back and forth when you touch them. The Washi Tape Americana she added to the bottom makes the perfect holiday border!



Like Katherine, Allison McCutcheon found wonderful July 4th inspiration in a non-July 4th set! Here, Allison shows how much she loves USA with the heart from our Heart Attack set. The bursts from the heart definitely call to mind fireworks fun for the holiday! We love the symbolic red, white and blue ribbons from our BoatHouse Collection grosgrains on the side to "tie" it all together!



Thanks, Crew Team gals -- fantastic job!

We hope all of you are inspired as we are by the Crew Team's ideas and that you will submit YOUR creative take on the 4th of July to our challenge! You could win a free Raisin Boat stamp set of your choice! Entries are due by July 12.

Happy party-planning for your July 4th holiday!
