Hi everyone! To quick off the 4th of July holiday weekend a bunch of us are participating in a Blog Hop! So sit back, relax and check out all the fabulous projects along the hop! See bottom of the post for a complete list of participants, PRIZES, and rules!
When I heard about the hop, I knew I had the perfect stamp set! I used the Aaahsome Fireworks Perfectly Clear Stamp Set from Stampendous. I kept the coloring simple by adding dots of color to the background.
The stars are alot of fun to make! I cut them on the Cricut from cardstock. Next I scored from the point down. Fold in half on the score line. Unfold and repeat with each of the points. To create the 3D effect, you'll fold the points and pinch in at the bases. Sounds confusing but makes more sense once you give it a try. Next I coated the entire thing in Versmark and embossed it with Crystal Embossing Powder by Stampendous. I love this stuff!!! Adds just the perfect amount of glitz to projects without glitter flaking off since its in the powder! I embellished the card with papers by Canvas Corp (blue dotted) and American Crafts (red grid).
