Be the Star for Stamping and Blogging – Stampin’ Up!

I used the Be the Star stamp set to create my card for the Stamping and Blogging SB65 Sketch Challenge today.  I also used the Stars Decorative Mask to stencil the background, the masks are so much fun to use!

Be the Star - Stamp With Amy K

Screen Shot 2014-07-22 at 4.30.44 PM

I started by sponging the stars in Night of Navy ink on a Night of Navy card stock panel with the Stars from the Hearts & Stars Decorative Masks set.  Then I adhered the sponged panel to a panel from the Gold Foil Sheets with SNAIL.  I cut a strip from the Gold Foil Sheet, punched the end with the Hexagon Punch and adhered it to the sponged panel with SNAIL.

Then I wrapped a strip of Gold 1/8″ Ribbon around the panel, adhering it with SNAIL.  I adhered the layered panel to a Night of Navy card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the A Dozen Thoughts stamp set in VersaMark ink on a Coastal Cabana panel, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I punched the end of the panel with the Hexagon Punch and adhered it with SNAIL to the card front.

Be the Star 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the star image from the Be the Star stamp set in VersaMark ink on a Night of Navy panel, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I cut the star image out with the matching Stars Framelits Die and adhered it with SNAIL to a 2″ Circle Punch from Coastal Cabana card stock that I’d pierced with the template from the Essentials Piercing Pack.  I adhered the circle to a Starburst Framelits die cut from Gold Foil Sheets, then adhered the layered image to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Be the Star 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I punched three stars with the punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack from Gold Foil Sheets and adhered them to the card front with a touch of Multipurpose Liquid Glue, then added four of the Coastal Cabana star sequins from the 2013-15 In Color Sequin Assortment.

Be the Star 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the star images from the Be the Star stamp set in Night of Navy ink across a Whisper White panel to complete the card.

  1. I love how you used the masks Amy, such a great card which I will definitely plan to case for my downline/team!

  2. Love the clever caption “Wish Big” and making the wish on the “big” star. I am obsessed with stars so this is my kind of card!

  3. Fabulous card Amy – I was close to using the same set for this challenge as I just love stars! It came together great and love how you used the sequins 🙂

  4. I really like how your card has so many little details that just make the card go to wow! The masking, the colors, down to the piercing on the circle behind the main star. Really well done Amy 🙂
