I made 2 sets of Patriotic cards and like how they both came out. The layered one is very easy to make and every card I have made this way has come out super. I call it a 3 tier card but there are other names for it.  I found the tutorial for them on splitcoaststampers and they call it Triple Stamping. I used the Ne Tim Holtz Americana Blueprint stamps for these 2 cards.

The other card I call  a "splat" card. That is exactly what you do with your paint dabber.
I took my paper and paints outside so as not to make a mess everywhere. Squeeze paint out of the top of your paint dabber until you get a good amount. Then just splat it on your paper. The harder you splat, the bigger the design. I just played around a bit until I got some I liked.

Here are my 4th of July nails!!!!!!
I also made a Chunky Charm and tag  for this same swap.
I hope you liked my projects and will return again to see what else I have been doing

I love these cards! I need to look up the triple stamp one. Won't be trying the second one because I was doing that with a distress stain dauber on my junk journal and it burst everywhere! All over me, the table, wall, carpet. Geez! But love the look with the red, white and blue!
