Wish on a Star

Hi there!  Hope you're having a great weekend!  The card I'm sharing today was made for the current challenge at Seize the Sketch and this week's color challenge at Splitcoaststampers.





When I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to use my new Stars Decorative Mask.  Using a sponge dauber, I created the gold star background behind the sentiment.


I don't often join in with the weekly Splitcoaststamper color challenge (I have good intentions but most weeks it doesn't work out) but I LOVE this color combination, so I made a point to be sure to work it into one of the cards I created this weekend.  I included some gold as an accent.  The gold star was popped out with a retired Stampin' Up! punch and the smaller star was stamped in Calypso Coral on Whisper White card stock, then cut out with my Paper Snips.


The sentiment was first stamped in Bermuda Bay and cut out with a Chalk Talk framelit.  It was stamped a second time in Calypso Coral, with the mid section cut out and popped up to give it a bit of dimension.

This was a fun card to make and it came together quite quickly.  If you have not been to Splitcoaststampers, I highly encourage you to check it out.  A remarkable resource for all levels of stampers.  Be sure to head over to STS as well, where you will find some terrific inspiration and a last chance to play along until midday tomorrow.

As always, I so appreciate your visit and comments!  Take care and enjoy your evening!

Hugs,

Stef
