If I Had A Star - Guest Designer Diana Nguyen

Hi, I'm Diana and I am so excited to be a guest designer for Quietfire.

I started stamping a little over 3 years ago and I think papercrafting is going to go from "hobby" (which I collect apparently) to "addiction."  One of those other hobbies I have is calligraphy so you can imagine my joy upon discovering Quietfire stamps.  I just love Suzanne's elegant style!  It makes creating a dream!

If I Had a Star


This card was incredibly fun to make.  I think it might be my favorite yet.  As soon as I read this sentiment, I knew I wanted a starry night background.  I sponged different distress inks (Salty Ocean, Broken China, Seedless Preserves, and Dusty Concord) and then splattered it with water that I had mixed in some Perfect Pearls.

For my stars, I covered my card stock with glitter tape before die-cutting and used the same glitter tape to make a mat for my starry night layer.  I embossed my sentiment in white on vellum and strategically placed those stars so I could hide my foam tape to adhere my vellum.

Thank you so much for looking!
