Sweet Sunday Sketch 291 | Be the Star

I am very excited about this challenge - it was one of those cards that just came together and worked effortlessly from the start till the end. When that happens it is such a joy! When you are creating so often it doesn't always flow so easily. I was inspired by the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. Here is the sketch -


I wanted to try and use a stamp set that has never seen ink before, and I found the perfect set.


I enjoyed using this set so much! But I will admit something? I DON'T have the matching thinlits! WHAT!!! I have no since fixed that issue and have ordered some. But these little babies - were hand cut. That's right - I FUSSY CUT the stars. That's how much I love them.


I absolutely adore a sentiment white embossed on black. There is just something about it that screams modern, funky and on trend when I see a card using it. I stamped the stars on whisper white to start with in the colours - but it just didn't have enough POP and colour for me. So I thought of white embossing on the colours - and it was exactly what I was after.

I put the big Bermuda Bay star on dimensionals to add layers and dimension. I adore the neutrals designer series paper stacks - and the strips are my all time favourites. The embossing is the Softly Falling Embossing folder from the Holiday Catalogue.



Here are the colours that I used. I wanted Bright fun happy colours. I hope that you enjoy this card as much as I do! There are some stand out cards that you just absolutely adore - and for me this is one of my all time favourite cards. Feel free to pin it if you feel the same!
