Shabby Patriot

 I had the pleasure of working with 2 new products this week.  A digital kit by Sherwood Studios called Summer Celebration. It is filled with great shabby-chic papers and elements with a bit of a vintage feel. Just take a look:

The other is a set of digital stamps with a modern, whimsical feel.  The set, Americana Digital Stamps, by Stacy Molter, just shout out for happy summer celebrations!  Which got me to thinking, the kit and the stamps would look great together!

So I created this card with them.  I recolored the stamp in Photoshop to coordinate with the papers from the kit. I love that you can do that with digital stamps, makes them so versatile!

I created the pin and the flower myself.  I didn't feel like getting the sewing machine out, so I stitched on the card by hand. I think it helped to add to the shabby-vintage look.
