The first one uses this month's stamp of the month, American Celebration. You can earn this stamp set at a discount or even FREE during the month of July. I wanted to do something a little different with the stars to make it look more like and any occasion card rather than a Fourth of July card. I thought the layered stars looked more like a quilt pattern.
The second card uses the stamps that came with the Fanfare Workshop on the Go and the retired Card Chatter set. I used Liquid Applique for the frosting, and I placed small brads to look like sprinkles.
