Stamp Something Friday!

It's Friday, and that means it's time for another Stamp Something challenge! Today's challenge was to make a red, white, and blue anything-but-a-card. If you've read my blog for any period of time, you will notice that about the only thing I do is cards. So this was a stretch for me, but I did it! Make sure you visit the rest of the team's blogs to see what they came up with.
This is most likely a centerpiece or table decoration. I took a Pringles can and cut it down, then covered it with strips of patterned paper (note: 9-1/4" length is just about right to go around a Pringles can). I stamped large stars with Classic Backgrounds and punched them out, adding small stars and embellishments to the centers. I then stamped the Happy 4th and Celebrate usa circles and embellished as well. I attached different length candy (sucker) sticks to each element and tied pieces of ribbon on each stick. I then stuck each one in a piece of foam in the bottom of the can so they would stay where I wanted them.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
stamps - Classic Backgrounds, Fundamental Phrases, Short Order Alpha and Numbers
paper - ww, real red, not quite navy, soft sky; real red, Jersey Shore, soft sky dsp
ink - sky, nq navy, real red
