Celebrate- Stars Abound!



Hi Stampers!

I wanted to create a Clean and Simple (CAS) card using the Pals Paper Arts PPA203Color Challenge along with the CTS75 CAS(E) This Sketch! Challenge and the FM159 Friday Mashup Challenge (used two retiring stamp sets).  
  
I hope you have a chance to check out all of the challenge sites- so much inspiration from all of the Design Teams and the other entries!!

To create this card:

Use the Big Shot™ with the Sizzix Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock and again onto the Night of Navy card base.

Create a tag using the Scallop Tag Punch from a 2” piece of Night of Navy cardstock and layer onto another tag created with the same punch from a piece of retired Outlaw Designer Series Paper. Add a scrap strip of Cajun Craze and Night of Navy cardstock to center part of the tag.

Stamp the star image from Simply Stars using Night of Navy Classic Ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and punch out using the retired Star Punch.   Add a small star to the center (punched out from Cajun Craze cardstock using the retired Merry Minis Punch Pack) and add a metallic brad to the center.

Add the layered star to the tag along with the sentiment from Express Yourself (retiring Hostess set) and add the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card. 

Stamp Sets: Simply Stars, Express Yourself (Hostess Set)

Ink: Night of Navy  
        
Paper: Cajun Craze, Night of Navy, Very Vanilla, retired Outlaw DSP

Accessories: Big Shot™, SizzixTextured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Punches:  Hexagon, Scallop Tag Punch, Merry Minis Punch Pack, retired Star, Metallic Brad


Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all of you have a great week!

Outlaw DSP! I thought I was the only one with this. You have to be a paper hoarder too!

Julie Gearinger said...

Yes, Peggy, I have to admit I am a paper hoarder - lol!!! I have paper from 1999 still in my stash :-)
