Today I will share how easy it is to create a very cohesive layout using just two ink colors and the matching Fireworks! colors for an amazing Fourth of July scrapbook layout. With just white cardstock, an embossing folder, a large die cut, and stamps this layout is perfect for Independence Day.
Time: 2 hours
On the right page the stamped elements are determined, then half are removed before stamping to allow for clean stamping of correct colors. The remaining elements are added and stamped. It was easier to stamp all the images Memento Lady Bug at one time, then follow with images in Memento Danube Blue.
Spritz Fireworks! into a plastic tray or surface. Place die cut stars from step 2 face down on the Fireworks! ink to add color. Use tweezers to move around in the ink and add more ink to tray as needed. About a third of the stars were inked with Fireworks! in Lady Bug the remaining in Fireworks! Danube Blue.
Determine correct placement of Fireworks! stars in the die cut. I rotated the star until it fit properly into the die cut area. Not all the stars are identical, so taking the time to find the right one was worth the effort for a seamless look.
Adhere elements to layout. Tear It! tape was used to adhere the photos to the textured mats. The die cuts are adhered with On Point! glue. The small dots around the star frames keep the layout clean and smudge free.
