Seeing Stars

Good morning all. Had to rise early today to let the plasterer in so had an early start crafting while everyone else slept. Checked out the new challenge at Less is More and found the ladies were looking for stars this week. A quick, simple card thought I - the design I've used a couple of times already and all I had to do was a bit of die cutting and stamp the star. Well this star was not for stamping - this must be my fifth attempt and it's still not perfect and the gold ink looks awful in the photo!

Smallest Grand Nestie square was die cut in white and a bauble shape cut out the centre, matted onto gold mirri card. Smaller bauble was stamped with a star image from Creative Expressions in gold and mounted on 3d foam. Finished with a small gold bow.

Challenges entered:
Less is More - stars
Pixie Cottage - go for gold
Simon says Stamp - anything goes
Bah! Humbug! - die cuts
Card Makin Mamas - die cuts

Well must go and get rid of some builder's dust from upstairs and sort the dirty washing ready to load this evening. Catch you all later.

  8. It still looks fabulous Carol. One thing which I often do if I'm not too thrilled with how some stamping turns out, is to add some Glamour Dust... it has rescued many a one of my cards! A touch of Zig glue and a quick sprinkle and Bob's your uncle!
    Thanks so much

  24. Val, the card is beautiful. I particularly love the gold foil paper layered with the white cut in the shapes of ornaments! Very creative. The star might have shown up better if you had done some heat embossing or maybe a little glitter? no matter...it's still a fab card!!
