CAS-ual Fridays Stamps: Red, White & Blue!

So many reasons to celebrate!
(I am still alive, in case you were wondering!) 

Summer school is over so I'm officially on vacation AND I'm up today on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog! A little red, white, and blue seemed in order for this week, right?!

My first card above uses the Shenanigans stamp set and the Treble Clef Fri-Dies. I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and added "let freedom ring" in my own handwriting, which I'm trying to embrace, even if I'm not Ali Edwards or Heidi Swapp! :)

For the card below, I used the super fun Ka-Boom stamp set. I embossed the sentiment in red on the wooden tag, and I attached a Lifesaver over the little bomb stamp on the tag. I'm not sure why, lol! I had them leftover from summer school, and it was red, hmmm, surely there was another reason...? I love the way the fringe trim turned out! I used the fringe scissors on red tissue paper, so easy!

Hope you enjoy my red, white, and blue cards! 
All the stamps and dies I used are in-stock at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, so check them out!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs & happy stamping!
