CAS Patriotic Star

Hi Stampers!

I had a chance to stamp today and decided to create a card for LeAnne’s CAS PP183Challenge at The Paper Players along with the Splitcoaststampers Love Fest LOVEFEST2014GChallenge to use scoring and WT467 Starry Eyed Challenge

If you have not had a chance to check out both sites, I hope you will take the time to visit- great inspiration by all!

I love this retired star, Christmas Star and thought that it could be used for other occasions versus just for Christmas....I decided to create a patriotic card...

To create this card:

Use Stampin’ Write markers in Cherry Cobbler and Midnight Muse (alternating the colors for each panel of the star) and stamp the image onto Whisper White cardstock. 

 *** HINT *** “Huff” onto the stamp for a second image to be used at a later date before cleaning the stamp :-)

Carefully cut out the stamped image by hand and use the Simply Scored Tool to create score lines, fold onto the lines to create a dimensional star.

Ink the diagonal line image stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Cherry Cobbler Classic ink,  the splatter stamp using Midnight Muse Classic Ink and stamp off before stamping onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. 

Trim and adhere onto a piece of Midnight Muse cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Cherry Cobbler card base.

Stamp the sentiment from Express Yourself using Midnight Muse Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  Create a banner using the Hexagon Punch and mount onto a piece of Midnight Muse cardstock (using the Hexagon Punch to create banner points as well). 

Mount the star and banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.  Add a few Rhinestones to finish off the card. 

Stamp Sets: Christmas Star, Gorgeous Grunge, Express Yourself

Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Midnight Muse; Stampin’ Write Markers- Cherry Cobbler, Midnight Muse

Paper: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Midnight Muse

Accessories: Rhinestones, Hexagon Punch

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by and visit- I hope all of you enjoy the rest of the week!
