Seeing Stars


Can you tell I bought a bunch of Altenew sets?  This sentiment is from Celebrate, a nice $5 set. The little star is from Concord & 9th's Eat Cake & Celebrate.


Individually stamped each of those stars!  Yes, my hand hurt by the time I was finished. Cut out the single stars and covered them and the word "YAY!" with Clear Pico Embellisher (similar to Glossy Accents but comes in a non clogging bottle, which should be required by law!!!).

Edited to add:

And I'm submitting this to the latest Muse Challenge.  I'll admit that I wasn't aware of it when I made my card, but Anita's card is fantastic.  Both of ours use the same Altenew sentiment placed in the same way against a background.  Great minds think alike!




MOOD WHEN DONE = Happy!

  7. Your brilliance is showing in the way you double stamped the "yay" and colored just a few of the MANY stars. My hand would ache, too, but it looks fantastic! I agree, "no clog" should be a law. Now I'm going to resist rushing right out to buy a bunch of Pico and Altenew.

  10. Great minds indeed, my friend! I let out a little 'yay' myself when I saw you'd used the same set and layout without seeing mt card. Wonderful stamping on this little set. Thanks so much for playing along at Muse x
