You're a star!


I don't know about you, but the CAS style is really a struggle for me (although my last card HERE turned out to be that way too.  LOL)  I'm kind of a "more is never enough" kind of gal which really poses a problem, so I've been trying to play in the CAS challenge at the Outlawz each week.  I was excited about the Stars theme because it was a chance to use my new Stitched Stars dies from Gina Marie.  Stitched dies in every shape have really become popular but I just got a bunch.  Seems I'm a little late to the party.  I found they coordinated  with my old Spellbinders Stars 5 dies so I ended up using both, the stitched ones to emboss (using the embossing mat and plate so they wouldn't cut through) and the regular ones to cut. The gold one is popped with foam, then I added some tiny sticker stars and sentiment and called it done.  This was made for a congratulations on a new job and inside says "You're a STAR!"

I'm adding this to the DL.Art January Linky challengeCrafty Calender Something New (stitched star dies),Crafty Friends New BeginningsLess is More New Beginnings, Come and Get it No Designer Paper and My Time to Craft Something New.

  2. You are doing great at getting into the CAS style Donna. It's a lovely card and the embossed stitched stars really draw your eye into the solid ones. I know how hard it is to learn CAS, having been a more, more, more girl myself in the past. Personally I may have used a few less stars but your simple colour scheme makes this one work brilliantly. Thank you so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx

  3. I love this Donna. I'm sitting here in my craft room looking around-I don't have one card with a white background. The stars really stand out. The foil papers you used are so elegant. I think I will try this technique maybe with hearts for valentines. Have a great day. Thank you for joining the DL.ART Thankful Thursday January Linky Challenge.

  6. This is a super CAS design and really effective - lots of impact with the stitching and metallic gold! Great job of keeping some empty space... I know it's a struggle (for me too!) so well done for a fab design. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :) (Just for future reference we have a limit of 5 challenge entries including ours.) x
