July's Challenge--Stars and Stripes--Use of Bling!!

At the Cuttlebug Blog for July, the theme is Stars and Stripes-Use of Bling! Well we rec'd an amazing package this month from Crazy Scraps (our super awesome sponsorer!! Check them out for super great deals.. )

For this challenge I used the following products supplied by Crazy Scraps:

Cuttlebug Die 2x2 Circle Frames
Doodlebug Mini Brads-Lady Bug
Doodlebug Crushed Velvet Blue Jean cardstock
Doodlebug Sew American Stripe paper

I also used:
red embossing powder, red and white cardstock, Storybook cart, the Mickey Font, some little rhinestones, and some ribbon

I decided to heat emboss some of the circles and I also heat embossed my brads to help them shine! It is so simple to do! All you need is some embossing powder, embossing ink and your heat gun! Push your brad into your ink pad, then put some embossing powder on it, heat it up, then repeat if you do not like the amount the first time. The marquee cuts were cut from the Storybook cart..the Sew American stripe paper was cut at 11 1/2 inches and the white was cut at 8 inches. The word FUN was cut from the Mickey font at 2 inches. Hope you like!! Let me know what you think!!
