Happy 4th with foam star stamping....

Happy 4th!  I know it's a bit early but I wanted to share a quick and easy way to create stamps for any occasion.  Right now I have - America, the beautiful, Old Glory and that American Pride on my mind.  We live in an incredible country with blessings and opportunities that create a well-lived Life as we pursue life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  We are truly blessed by God, the founding fathers and those men and women who have and continue to protect and to defend our nation.  On to the fun.. You can do this with any foam stickers or use foam to create your own.  But when I saw these foam stickers at the $1 section of Target, I knew that I could make some quick star stamps.  Here's how....  
Gather $1 foam stickers, inks, acrylic blocks and paper

Adhere the stickers to an acrylic block

Here I created a border of the stars

Now ink your stamp and stamp on paper
See the texture from the stickers

The paper ribbon is made with the star border and then inked the paper to give it an aged look.

The finished card...with added lace, flowers and the #4 brad in honor of the 4th.  Have fun celebrating our nation's beginning and God bless this land that we love!
