HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!
With this Stamp background from "Lost Coast Designs", I decided to celebrated this 4th of July!!!
This stamp is a collage background of various "Americana" icons, quite large and I only stamp part of it (the bottom part) to fit it in a regular A2 card..
but the whole stamp has:
1- The Statue of the Liberty, from New York given by the government of France to the USA (top left corner),
2- in the center we have the bottom part of the Document of the Declaration of the Independence, 1776 (with the John Hanckok signature among others)
3- and on the top right corner we have an "americana" lady dressed with the flag,
4- and last, on the bottom we have "Mount Rushmore", in South Dakota...
For the stars: I used some dies from "My Favorite Things" and a NEW die "beloved stars" from the Memory Box Holiday Collection 2014, which is in stores right now...
I will be bringing to you some more samples with all the NEW holiday collection from Memory Box, next week!
We will have 2 weeks of "blog blitz", at the language blogs, one week showing you the new dies and the next one with the new stamps...they all are so pretty! so stay tunned!!!
Mount Rushmore: is a sculpture carved into the mountain, into the granite, and it depicts the heads of 4 United States presidents: George Washington; Thomas Jefferson; Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.
So for those fans out there of real "Americana" = (collection of artifacts related to the history, geography, folklore and cultural heritage of the US) this stamp is great!!!
Thanks for the visit
and with the red, white and blue
off to go to see fireworks
and a concert!!!
linking it to some fun challenges...
