If I Had A Star!

Good morning!  Sherry here with you today and I have a quick and easy card using Quietfire Design, If I Had a Star for Every Time You Made Me Smile, and some chipboard stencils that I made with Spellbinders die templates.


To begin, I stamped the sentiment in black on watercolor paper and then lined up my die template around the stamped image, to make sure the sentiment was straight.  (Hint:  this saved me time from re-creating the front of the card again, after already completing it once and then stamping the sentiment crooked!)  The base of the card and all the other panels were die cut/embossed with Spellbinders 5x7 Matting Basics A and B.

Using Spellbinders Stars Five, a stencil was die cut from chipboard, which was then stippled with Mustard Seed and Wild Honey Distress Inks.  While the stencil was still taped down, VersaMark was stamped over the image.  The stencil was then removed and the star was embossed with clear embossing powder.  

Another stencil was made from chipboard using Spellbinders CrissCross Expandable Pattern, which was then stippled in Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  Using an ink spritzer, the same colors were spritzed across the front of the card.  

Some outlining was added with a Pigma Micron pen, and the ribbon (from the stash jar) was added.


That’s all for me today.  Thanks for stopping by and joining me!

Ummm....Seriously had a "smack my head" moment when I read about stamping sentiment FIRST then die cutting! I do that for itty bitty stamps, why have I NEVER thought to do it for the front of my cards?!!

I love this quote!
