Our Creative Corner Challenge this week is to have stars and stripes on your creation. Every year on 9/11, I make the rounds to the 7 fire stations in my town, taking them some cookies and thanking the firefighters (some of them friends) for serving us so faithfully. Our fire trucks and engines are yellow (red ones coming soon!) so I cut out this engine using Yoyo Yellow. I added the teeny piece of Real Red for the light on top. The striped "street" is one of the prints from Washington Apple designer paper. The stars are from The Free and the Brave stamped in Yoyo Yellow. The sentiment is stamped in Real Red using Define Your Life stamp. I left the last line of the definition off.
TIP: to use only part of the sentiment, I masked off the last line by putting the sticky part of a post it note over it. Then I turned my inkpad over to ink the sentiment. To stamp it, you just take the sticky note off. Make sure your stamp is clean and dry before doing this!
