In the video today, I created a patriotic card using the new Pennant Parade Cling & Clear stamp set. Watch how I created the card below:

In the video, I show you how to stamp the banner background in the Pennant Parade set and then add the color fills. I added some more stars and firework bursts with the All Tucked In – Patriotic stamp set and sentiments with the Handlettered 4th of July stamp set.

Here’s a closer look at the new products I shared in the video:

The newest addition to the Cling & Clear collection is the Pennant Parade set. Stamp the banner outlines and then add color and pattern to the pennants with the 5 options included in the mini clear set. Customize your pennant colors for a patriotic look or for other celebrations like birthdays or graduation!

The new Handlettered 4th of July dies coordinate perfectly to cut out the sentiments in the previously released Handlettered 4th of July stamp set. You are going to love the close-cut detail that will bring added dimension and contrast to these sentiments!

All Tucked In – Patriotic is a new Clearly Crafty stamp set designed to coordinate with All Tucked In and All Tucked In – Windows to create treat boxes. Plus, the sentiments and icons can easily be combined with other stamps too!

The ‘celebrate freedom’ sentiment on my project is stamped with an ombre/gradient effect. In the video I share how I used a Blender Brush to ink the darker color on the stamp to create the effect! I added a few sparkly stars around the sentiment that are die cut with the smallest star from the Banner Year – 4th of July set.

While I used patriotic colors on my project, you can change out the colors and use this set for so many other occasions!

Here’s more inspiration from members of the TE Creative Team using the new products from this release!

Here’s a closer look at the Starry collection! This group of products joins our popular stamp, cutting plate, and stencil collections where each product is designed to work together to easily stamp, blend, and die cut the images. This all-over star pattern will be great for patriotic projects, but can also be used for birthdays, graduations, and encouragement cards.

Jen Shults created a patriotic card using the Starry product collection. She embossed the Starry Background stamp in white over a red and blue ink blended background and cut out the stars using the coordinating Starry Cover Plate die. She popped the stars up over another Starry Background that is stamped with Sugar Cube ink on Toffee cardstock. She added the ‘Happy Independence Day’ sentiment from the new All Tucked In – Patriotic stamp set on a strip of cardstock to complete her design.

Here’s another card from me (Heather Nichols) that I created with the Starry product collection. I stamped the Starry Background in Oreo ink onto Sugar Cube cardstock and added color to the stars through the Starry stencil using my Blender Brushes. I did some creative masking with the Starry Cutting Plate and masking paper to add the blended background around the colored stars. This card is finished off with sentiments from the new Mini Strips – Patriotic stamp and a few glittery stars!

You saw the new Fireworks Stamp & Stencil set featured in Taylor’s video yesterday! This set features a red rubber background with an all over star design and stencils to create multi-colored fireworks design. The stencils include etched guides so everything lines up perfectly!

Jill Hawkins took the new Fireworks Stamp & Stencil set and created a card perfect for celebrating a birthday! One of her fireworks layers is done with green and blue inks and then other is done with pink, peach, and yellow inks. The possibilities with color for this set are so much fun! Jill added a bit of sparkle to her fireworks using glimmer paste and added the ‘happy birthday to you’ sentiment from the Handlettered Sentiments stamp set.
