Light the Sky Celebrate

Light the Sky Celebrate

For today’s hop, I chose to use Stampin’ Up!’s Light the Sky stamp set to create a patriotic card celebrating Independence Day. I know, I know! Who sends cards to celebrate the Fourth of July? I think it’s really fun to make and send cards for all of the holidays. In fact, I bought this stamp set to use specifically for July 4th and New Year’s. 

One quick note about this stamp set. You won’t find it in a catalog; it’s part of Stampin’ Up!’s Online Exclusives. It’s definitely for sale. (Take a minute to browse the Online Exclusives by clicking here. There are some really great products not found in catalogs.)

What are In Colors?

Today, I’m sharing a fun supply box inspired by my friend and teammate, Gina. She demonstrated this box design at our team meeting. I just had to share the design with all of you. I love that you can store so many things in this handy box, such as cards, embellishments, adhesives, and more. And, you can make it with card stock.

You’ll need two sheets of matching card stock measuring 8 1/4 x 9 3/4. Follow the scoring and cutting directions below. You can also follow along with the video.
