You’re a star…

My lovely friend and neighbour asked me to make an 80th birthday card for her dad…

She wanted different blues and greens so I used certainly celery, bashful blue,

night of navy and marina mist inks, which I think worked really well together…

 Heat and stick powder and dazzling diamonds made things sparkle…

 and crystal effects securely adhered the stars to flower wires

which I left to dry overnight before putting the card together.

Happy Halloween …

I know … it’s a long way off, but I just couldn’t resist using the owl stamp from the punch bunch set, which was free during sale-a-bration. I was lucky enough to get hold of this stamp set and I love it! Congratulations to those of you who managed to get your sets too!

The great thing about being part of the Stampin’ Up family is you are encouraged to share ideas with each other. As soon as I saw the owl stamp in the punch bunch set, I wanted to case (copy and share everything) this Halloween card, originally made by Kathleen Innes. Here’s my version of it:



Stampin’ Up supplies used:

Cardstock: not quite navy, night of navy, whisper white; Ink: night of navy; Stamp sets: punch bunch (retired), polka dot (retired), in the stars (retired), bird on a branch (retired), occasional greetings; Punches: jewelry tag, ¾”and ½” circles, word window, modern label; Accessories: stamp-a-ma-jig, brayer, stampin’ dimensionals.
