Cut it Up Red, White, and Blue

CIU challenge blogToday is Flag Day!

It’s also another challenge day at Cut it Up Challenge Blog, and so our theme is Red, White, and Blue to celebrate.  A really cool thing is that we are being sponsored this time around by Annie’s Paper Boutique!  They donated some awesome Trendy Twine for our prize AND gave each of us design team members samples to create with to boot!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

P1060203webThese little cuties are cut files from My Scrap Chick.  They’re called Nail Polish Treat Boxes.  I was going to actually put a nail polish inside, but decided on M&Ms instead!

P1060197webWow, Evelyn, what a great job you did with the placement of all those stamps!!  How’d you do it??   🙂  You know that normally I do a terrible job with stamping, but I had a brainstorm when I made these treat holders.  First, I laid down the stamps I wanted to use right where I wanted them to go on the paper:

P1060196webNow I had the perfect placement!  Stamp, stamp, stamp and I was all finished, and I think it looks pretty good!!  Brilliant!!  (Hope I don’t strain a muscle patting myself on the back!)   I feel like I invented a brand new technique, but I bet it’s old news to all you stampers out there!

So, on to the Cut it Up challenge.  It’s pretty simple.  Make a project that features Red, White, and Blue, and remember to include a die cut.  That’s it!  If you’re lucky, you could win this Trendy Twine bundle:

    Clever, clever, clever and cute as can be. Love the idea of putting ALL the images on the block. Thanks for the inspiration. haha…love chocolate more than nail polish and a tad cheaper …another great idea. I couldn’t get to the challenge but will certainly take every opportunity to do this one. Fun challenge to help with the upcoming July 4th celebration.

    I love the cute nail polish treat boxes. And by the way, I did not think of lining up stamps this way so my hat’s off to you because I think this is brillant and I will be using your new technique.
