SNR Oh Say Can You See Blog Tour
Welcome to the Scrapbook News and Review's "Oh Say Can You See" Blog Tour Hop! I am so excited to be part of this 90+ blog tour hop! Check out all the great projects! This tour is a Red, White, and Blue themed tour. There are some fantastic blog candies being given away. You can start this blog tour at the beginning or go to the next blog by clicking on the link at the end of my post. You can go to the start of the blog by clicking on the blog hop photo above! Now on to my project! I love the USA and wanted to show it. My husband served 20 years in the Army. I am so proud of him!
This is a magnet for my refrigerator or my metal file cabinet. It is a simple project. The star and heart are from retired chipboard Stampin' Up! products. I covered a chipboard star with Brilliant Blue cardstock. The cardstock was heat embossed with Detail White embossing powder using Versamark ink. I used the Classic Backgrounds stamp set for the small stars. Using a glue stick, I adhered the cardstock to the chipboard. You can trace around the star on the backside of the cardstock and cut if before attaching to the chipboard or use a craft blade and turn the star over and trim after you glue the cardstock down.
I used a red wire to thread the USA beads on. Crystal Effects is great for gluing down the beads and heart. I used a red Sharpie pen to color the outside edges of the heart. I put a layer of Crystal Effects over the heart and sprinkle red glitter. Let it dry and then shook off the excess glitter. After shaking the glitter. I made sure there were no spots without ink showing on the front of the heart and touched up the spots I needed to. For the star I used a blue sharpie around the outside edges so they matched the cardstock. Glue a magnet on the back and you are finished! Easy peasy as some say!
