Be The Star You Are

It’s been a while since I’ve crafted a step-card, and Cindy Lovell’s awesome sketch for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge was perfect for using for one.  The step-card puts the design of the sketch front and center…

FMS154-Be-the-StarA quick and easy card with lots of shimmer and shine is always a favorite for me, and this one fits the bill.  The stars stencil sponged with Silver metallic ink for the background, and a simple star cut with one of the Stars Framelits sets the stage for a card that says You’re a Star!


To emphasize the “Star You Are”, I simply used a So Saffron Stampin’ Write Marker to “highlight” the words and scattered a few silver sequins from the Frosted Sequins embellishments (Holiday Catalog).  How easy would it be to convert this design to a holiday card???

I hope you’ll take a moment to check out the fabulous cards that our ‘Clean Team’ has designed for your inspiration at Freshly Made Sketches.  Better yet, come play along with us this week!

FMS154 Cindy LWishing you tons of stamping mojo!

    I love blue and silver together, and that big, shiny star is fabulous. What a cool design. I’m not usually brave enough to try special folds, but this one adds such a wow. Beautifully done, Cindy!

    This is just fabulous, Cindy! The stenciled background looks great and I can only imagine how much better it must look IRL.

    Cindy, I think you may have it wrong. I think YOU are the star! What a super great card ! Love the details and the shimmer, and I do love step cards, although I’ve only made one. I have to try it again. Hugs my friend. XO
