I'm back again today with more homework from Stretch Your Stamps 2. The second day of class was filled with more inspiration for using our background stamps.
Remember back when we were all excited about Perfect Pearls? Well, Jennifer McGuire created a gorgeous card using them and I couldn't wait to pull mine out again and play!
The Hero Arts Tiny Star Background was stamped with VersaMark then brushed with a few different blue and purple colored Perfect Pearls. I die-cut the large, Puffy Star from Lawn Fawn and the die-cut, "hello" is from Simon Says Stamp. I coated it with VersaMark then clear embossed. I did this three or four times to create more dimension. I added a few die-cut Mini Stars from SSS and brushed those with a Wink of Stella pen. Here's a close-up so you can see the pretty shimmer from the Perfect Pearls.
Since I had that lovely star all cut out, I thought I might as well make another, simple card.
The die-cut "you" is from the Small Love You Die by SSS and the rest of the sentiment is from their Tiny Tag Words set.
I stamped the sentiment just a bit too far to the left, so to correct it, I added a couple of exclamation points.
I go back to work tomorrow after a couple days off. Hoping I can still keep up with the homework from class! Sure is enjoyable having more time to create! Can you say, "retirement?" Wishful thinking!
Thanks for stopping by! ♥
