Uncle Sam Layout

I have a party scheduled in Chariton, Iowa on Friday, July 16th.  The hostess is Jeri (Hi, Jeri!).  Well, she has asked for a layout, since most of the guests are scrapbookers and a couple cards.  She really liked my stampin' pastels and blender pen tutorial and would like me to show them this technique too.  I am still brainstorming on that project.

Yesterday, I finished the layout we will be creating at her party.  Don't ya just love that Uncle Sam?  I got that idea from Kelly at A Stamp Above.  She created this Uncle Sam for a punch art blog hop.  His mustache, nose and eyebrows are made with the two-step bird punch.  I loved it, and knew I wanted to incorporate it on the July layout for Jeri's party.  I only made a couple changes to mine.  Thanks, Kelly!

Here is a close-up of Uncle Sam.

I was hoping these are obvious.  They are supposed to be firecrackers.  My son, Tate said they looked like firecrackers, so I left them alone.

Materials used are stampin’ up! Unless noted
