Stampers Best OWH Blog Skip May 19th!

Hello and welcome to my stop on the Stampers Best OWH Fundraiser blog skip! You should have arrived here from Natasha’s blog http://cleversoiree.blogspot.com. If you need to, you can always start the skip over at Stars and Stamps, the OWH blog. All of the cards on the hop feature stamps from the selection at Stampers Best that benefits OWH. Here’s a link directly to the OWH page at Stampers Best. For my first card, I used the delightful new Stampers Best stamp (designed by OWH President Sandy Allnock) called CIARA IN CAMOUFLAGE.
Do you like the little silver "dog tags"? I drew them onto silver paper (A.C. Moore), cut them out and attached them to the little keychain that I found in the jewelry making section of A.C. Moore. I don't have the name of the tiny "Thanks" sentiment stamp I used. DP: 29th Street Market "Classic" Antique Shining Star; double-sided. My Mind’s Eye (Find at Michael's). Spellbinders Nestabilities. Copics. Ciara is paper-pieced from stash. Glossy Accents. Provocraft stars embossing folder, sanded with flower-shaped sanding tool. I also made a card with the Stampers Best stamp called MY COUNTRY. I love the silhouette of kids saluting the flag and the vintage feel of this stamp.
DP: A.C. Moore. Ribbon: Angela’s Happy Stamper. STAMPERS BEST has amped up the excitement for the blog skip!

Great cards Sherry! I especially love the combinations of textures in the Ciara card. It almost has a collage feel to it. Of course you know that I gravitate to red, white and blue so the second is right up my alley and yes I am still hoarding that gorgeous ribbon. :)

Love your dog tags. I have an old Sizzix die that cuts them for me, but don't have the chain. I've been using silver cord, but the chain looks great.
