Blog Hopping with Joy Clair Stamps

No automatic alt text available.

Hi everyone, it's time to celebrate new stamp sets from Joy Clair.  Today we are working with the Grungy Flag Background and Happy Fourth stamp sets.

You should have arrived here from LeeAnn's blog. 

The Grungy Flag Background is a perfect size for cards.  Simply ink it up and stamp it on white cardstock.  Since it is "Grungy", I lightly inked the edged with brown ink.  Next I matted it with blue and red cardstock.  The phrase is from the Happy Fourth stamp set which I die cut and added to the card.

My next card was stamped a little lighter than the first and more "grungy" looking.  The phrase was die cut and added to the card with foam adhesives.
