You're a Star Card

Hi everyone. I hope you've had a better week than I have - my cold turned into the cold from hell. On Tuesday I couldn't even keep water down and ended up passing out. Still, I'm starting to feel human again now so I thought I'd better get back online and catch up with a few things.

I've chosen this card to blog today as it's a nice simple one to explain and simple is good at the moment!

For the sparkly stars I used the Stars Wreath stencil with some Sweet Dimensions paste that I had added glitter to (I wrote about that in this post here). Since then I've bought myself a metal spreader, that I also wrote about in that post, and it makes spreading the paste so much easier. I actually got one by Dreamweaver as I saw it for sale at a craft show I was at. It's 7" long so it covers the whole width of the stencil in one go.

Once I'd done that I did the stamping in Jet Black Archival ink and coloured in "Thank you" with a black Sakura Stardust pen. It adds a lovely shimmer to it.

There isn't a "You're" in the Word Chain stamps so I made that up from some others.

A black mat, some faux stitching and some ribbon finish it off.

I guess I'd better go and catch up on FB now. I haven't been on there all week either and have loads of notifications to catch up on. I hope you have a good weekend.

  5. Hi Lynne. Glad that you are feeling a bit better. What a lovely card. I can never get my faux stitching straight...I always mess up about an inch from the end or in a bit that can't be disguised by anything... I love the calligraphy of the Thank You and you would never tell that you had put together the " you're ". Brilliant as always. xx
