New Holiday Collection Stamps - July

Happy July everyone, and Happy 4th of July to my American peeps! It's so hard for me to focus, create, and especially blog during the summer months with the kids home and so much going on. I do apologize for not being around, but maybe that's why the phrase "Lazy days of summer.", came around...for people like me. I can't wait for school to be back in and I can get back to a regular schedule! ;0)  I'm a bad mom! Anyway, here are two samples from my July set of the Holiday Collection Stamp Series from WeCraft. I'll have a few more samples from this set later on in the month, but these are for the holiday this week. Enjoy and be safe out there this week!
July Set - 9 Images
For the background on these, I used an older Paper Stash from Tim Holtz, Motif this stack of Kraft and White papers! I inked over both designs with Distress Ink and misted with water, and cleaned off the resist areas. I stamped the images on Specialty Stamping Paper from Ranger with Jet Black Archival, cut them out, then stitched around everything, and finally colored the images in with Pitt Pens from Faber-Castell.
Thanks for looking, and have a super holiday week!

I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!


  1. heehee no Anita,you are not a bad mom! I heard on the radio last week that it takes approximately 13 hours of kids on summer vacation till the parents start wishing for school! LOL You are not alone! I do remember those days,as long ago as they are now...
