Simply Stars

CCMC295Sometimes I try to work ahead on my challenges.  That is a good thing so that I can have things done in case things happen, I know that I am done.  So last month I was working ahead on some challenges.  I also try to match things up with what I’m doing if Create with Connie and Mary is having a collection going on.  Well….I made this really cool card for a Thursday Challenge and then realized…I had my weeks mixed up.  DRAT!!!  I HATE when that happens!  So anyway, I had this perfectly good card and thought I’d share it with you anyway.  This week on Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions 2014 I am featuring the Simply Stars set.  (You have to be a subscribers to see those cards those…I will have to say, it is a COOOOL set!).  So here’s a card I made for a Thursday sketch challenge from a couple weeks ago.

Here’s the details…

  • Real Red – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 3 3/4.  Stamp the larger splatter using Real Red and the smaller splatter using Basic Black.  Layer this on 3 7/8 x 3 7/8 Basic Black and add to card front.
  • Add 3 strips of Silver Foil 1/8″ wide.  I add them on the diagonal then just trimmed to fit.
  • Cut out an oval from Whisper White, stamp the greeting using Basic Black, pierce around the oval and add using dimensionals.
  • Stamp the big star in Real Red, two of the smaller dotted star in Versamark and silver emboss and punch out two Basic Black stars.  Add all these to the oval.
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.
