After die cutting the star from gray cardstock I heat embossed a sentiment with white powder. I grabbed a scrap of smooth white Bristol paper and combined Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks for the panel behind the star cut out. I also die cut several stars from complimentary cardstock colors and adhered them to the front. One of the navy stars was covered in Glossy Accents. A strand of pretty silver cord was wound around the gray panel before I finally attached it to a white card base.
I think this card design would be good for a congratulations card too. Here's a photo of a variation of the same design.
This time I added a bit of Seedless Preserves to the inked panel and it gives a purple hue when mixed with the blues. I chose a silver ribbon and tied it in a knot. The stitched panel was added to a gray cardstock base.
Hope you have a wonderful starry day!

I would call it stunning! This was so simple to do, after I messed up several card panels of course.
I finished the card by die cutting the love word 3 times and gluing it to the center of the card. I mounted it on a white card base. This is actually a 5" x 5" card, which I think adds to the elegance of the project.
Here's today's badge. And because I've entered all 5 camp create challenges I have the opportunity of winning $150 of My Favorite Things products. It would be great!

I used masking paper to create a frame on my paper in which I could do some ink blending. I used Dried Marigold and Worn Lipstick. After applying the ink, I removed the mask frame and was left with a nice white area.
I stamped and colored a favorite Pure Innocence girl and then fussy cut her. I popped her up with some foam and stamped the sentiment right on the inked panel using my Misti tool. So cute! Here's today's badge.

I love the soft look and simplicity of this card. The resist technique is basically where you create a design with melted embossing powder and then ink over the top. The embossed area resists the ink and doesn't take the color. It gives a stunning effect with not much effort. I think this leaf design is universal for so many occasions. I let the large sentiment shine with a pretty scalloped oval edge.
See you tomorrow!
I created this fishtail design and used 2 colors of Distress inks to give the background a watery look. I've been wanting to use Lawn Fawn's Fintastic Friends stamps and dies. It was really easy to color in the cute fish and tank and after die cutting them I was ready to put the card together.
Here's my badge for today.
Tomorrow is day 3, Remarkable Resist. Pop in to see my awesome card!

I used a Project Life card for the sentiment panel. This made it easy to put the card together since most of the work was in the ready made card. I chose some complimentary paper colors, to make it monochromatic. I die cut the heart border 5 times and stacked one on top of each other. I then pieced the inner shapes with the contrasting color.
I earned my camp badge for today!

I stamped the three fish images from the set on some Bristol smooth cardstock and lightly colored them with some gray Copic markers. Then I stamped the cat, colored and cut him out. I popped him up with a Wobble so he shakes and moves when you touch him. I stamped the sentiment with my Misti lining up the two sentences perfectly.
After adding a pop of color with the "salmon" hearts I put everything together on a Bermuda Bay card base. So cute. Thanks for staying with me this week.

I started by stamping the Sunflower Sweetheart girl image on a piece of Bristol smooth white cardstock. I stamped the image again on a piece of masking paper and fussy cut her out. The masking paper has a thin release sheet that peels off and you lay it over your stamped image. When I did this I had a surface that I could ink on and not worry about sunflower girl getting messy.
I thought it was appropriate to use Tim Holtz's Ray stencil and several Distress inks to make a sunshine background. I am happy I decided to extend the rays all around her and not just at the top. When I removed the stamped mask I had her outline and then used Copic markers to color her. I also had to cover her with a clear Wink of Stella pen to enhance her sparkle.
I used a foam panel to pop her up from the main card base. I also love the red card stock I used as it brings out the red in her dress. I think she's beyond adorable. I've got one more challenge to enter at MFT. The ideas are already flowing!
