You’re A Star!

Hi All! Welcome to another Stuck On U Sketches die cut challenge! This challenge is all about stars.

Let’s take a look:


The card base for is a standard A2 using Colonial White cardstock. I layered the base with Hollyhock and Outdoor Denim cardstocks, and then added pattern papers from Close To My Heart’s Claire paper pack (which has sadly been retired). The stars are cut at 3 1/2 inches from Outdoor Denim cardstock using the Artbooking Cricut cartridge. I added silver Stickles to the stars for extra bling (really, whoever heard of a dull star?). The sentiment is from the Artbooking collection and is stamped in Outdoor Denim Exclusive ink on a fun cork shape from my stash. I added a little Color Ready Seam Binding to the card and the cork for extra flair, and then popped up the sentiment using dimensional adhesive.

Here are a couple of close-ups:





I added some stars from the die cut to the inside of the card for a little extra interest. (And why wast these perfectly beautiful cuts?) 🙂

Here is the outside of the card, once again:



Hope you enjoyed my little starry card. For more starstruck inspiration, don’t forget to hop on over to Stuck On U Sketches.

Have a wonderful, creative day!




A Challenge with the Pals

Hi All! It’s been a long time since I last played along with the Pals Paper Arts challenge! I’m glad I could get back to it this week. Here’s the challenge:


Here’s my take:


For this easel card, I used Sunset Cardstock for the base and Hollyhock Cardstock for the top layer. The chevron and polka dots/denim papers are from Close To My Heart‘s new Clair collection. The Outdoor Denim Chevron Ribbon is also new and by Close To My Heart. For the top pink layer, I used the new CTMH March Stamp Of The MonthFloral Happiness–to stamp tone-on-tone using Blush Cardstock and Blush Exclusive Ink. The sentiment is from the “A Friend Like You” stamp set and is stamped in Outdoor Denim Exclusive Ink. I stamped the rose in Blush and Sunset Exclusive Inks. The leaves are stamped in Sweet Leaf Exclusive Ink. Both images are from Floral Happiness.

Here is the card opened:



Again, the sentiment is from A Friend Like You and is stamped in Outdoor Denim Exclusive Ink. I added some pearls for a little extra flair.

Here are a couple of close-ups:


Hope you enjoyed my little card. It was a fun one to make! Have a wonderfully creative Thursday!
