Patriotic Blog Hop

Welcome to the Team Stamp It Groups Patriotic Blog Hop.  Whether you started with my blog or "hopped" over from one of my teammate's blogs, I am happy you stopped by!
I decided to try something different for this Blog Hop and made a 
4th of July sampler.  
I have never attempted to make a sampler before.  It was fun trying to figure out what to use and where to put it.  The finished size of this sampler is 
8 1/2" x 8 1/2", if I were to do it over again, I would change the size to 8"x 8" or 10"x 10".  My plan was to mount the sampler in a 9" x 9" frame, however, I was unable to locate a frame that size.
The background for the Celebrate section of the sampler is from the new Twinkle, Twinkle Designer Series Paper.
Star garland was used for the sparks on the fireworks. 
The banner was made using the Pick a Pennant stamp set along with the coordinating Playful Pennants Framelits.
  The water die from the Lakeside framelits make an awesome flag along with the new Twinkle adhesive-backed sequins.
It's amazing what you can do with a scallop punch and a couple of 
circle punches.
The Red and Blue Glimmer paper were made by coloring the new 
Sparkle Glimmer paper with Real Red and Pacific Point Stampin' Write Markers.  The Real Red Stampin' Write Marker colored the Glimmer paper relatively quickly and easily.  I had to apply several layers of the Pacific Point Stampin' Write Marker in order to get the color to look dark enough.
The background for the Bicycle is from the new 
Best Route Designer Series Paper.
