ISC Sneak Peek --- Memories of Patriotism

Today I am giving you a sneak peek at a new deeply etched red rubber sheet of stamps called Memories of Patriotism. It will be released for purchase at Innovative Stamp Creations on June 8th. There are many patriotic/historic images and sentiments included and can be used in a variety of ways. I chose to make a patriotic 'thanks' with two of the larger images (eagle and declaration), I added a third image, the tag, and added one of the sentiments to that tag image. This set would be perfect for patriotic holidays, gift sets for military families, and cards for heroes organizations. I used it with designer paper by Karen Foster. The stars were cut out with a Sizzex die, with a metal star brad added in the center.

Be sure to stop in for the next couple of days when I will have more sneak peeks to share. You might also want to check out the Innovative Stamp Creations blog to see what else is going on with this fabulous stamp company.

Please forgive any spelling/posting errors. I had hundreds of laser beams 'shot' at my retina today so I am in a bit of a fog. (Of course, there are some people who would say I live in a fog, but they would be wrong....lol!!!!) My sincere thanks to Virginia, a dear friend, who was my chauffeur today. Friends really are the greatest gift, as the saying goes.

We have brightened up today, but I will be staying out of the sunshine with my dilated, foggy eyes. Hope you are enjoying some sunshine in your life.....have a great day!!!!!!
