SS Transparent challenge

Good evening,

I'm back entering another challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Blog.  I have to say since I've started paper crafting more and more I can't believe I took such a long break.  I'm so glad that I got back into the swing of things.

This week's challenge is called "I can see clearly now" and the take is anything transparent, vellum etc.  I knew right away that I wanted to create something to fit this theme.  Now remember, I save EVERYTHING.  Seriously, it's baaaddd, but clearly I have exactly what I needed for this challenge.  I started with
the packaging from a cricut cartridge and cut it down to size 
then I embossed it with my cuttlebug Stars folder 
Perfect embossing. 
I did want some of the stars to pop, so I masked them off 
and using my Stazon ink I inked direct from pad to star. 
I cut out a star with my cricut and inked around it and the saying 
"You are a Star" 
I laid the "transparency" on to the card and created a pleated ribbon to make it look like a curtain. 
Easy, easy, easy and oh so much fun!

I hope you've enjoyed my quick card and hope to see you again real soon.  
Remember, if you are looking for a challenge, the Simon Says Stamp Blog is a great blog to participate in.

As always, have a great day and God Bless!

  1. Wow! This card is incredible! I am blown away by so many creative ideas! Nice upcycling with the Cricut packaging and I love how you embossed it. And then to highlight just a few stars with ink? Quite genius! The effect is stunning and you gave me some great new ideas to try out. Thank you so much for sharing your talents and for playing along with us this week at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
