Smiling Night Star

 

Grrrrrrr...have you ever cut up the card you just finished? I HAVE!! I just completed my card after making it twice because I got a smudge on the first one. I went off into another room, came back and was going to cut the back off the first one for a scrap  and instead cut up the card I had ready to photograph. You could say I'm not a happy stamper this morning. :(  But, I must carry on and post the latest card I did  (that would be #3).

I'm entering my card into the CASology challenge #10. The cue word this week is SKY.


The team asked us to look up to the sky this week and see where our creativity takes us. I recently bought this smiling star stamp and thought it would be good to hang in the night sky smiling down on us. I stamped my clouds and then stamped the star, colored, cut out, and popped over the clouds.

Recipe:
Stamps-Stampabilities/Cursive Smile (sentiment) and Stampabilities/Star, Stampscapes/Cloud(Cumulus)
Paper-PTI white cardstock
Ink-Memento Paris Dusk and Tuxedo Black
Accessories-Copic Y2 canary yellow, dimensionals for popping star

What a fantastic, dramatic sky stamp that is - contrasting perfectly with your happy star! I have so done similar things to your mistake this morning! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

Well Brenda, all I can say is that I certainly hope you WIN this challenge after going through so much trouble to get this adorable card done! LOL It's just adorable with that smiling star and colorful blue & white clouds! Well done!

Oh no!!!! That is awful!!!! I do all sorts of crazy stamping things. The latest was when I was CASEing a card. I was stamping off some of the ink onto my craft mat but DID NOT wipe off the mat. I flipped the card over to glue it. Now the sky that was going to remain white was now tinged green!!!! I did NOT want to start over so I sponged a sky. Crazy things happen along the way to the photo gallery
!!!! Love your fun sky with the bright pop of yellow!

Yip, I can confess to cutting up the wrong bit of card! And smudgey fingers too! Never mind, version #3 is fabulous (lovin your sky stamp!)

Melissa said...

Hahaha! You're not the only one who does such things! I've smudged up cards that were completely done, cut through images, etc!

This little star is so cute! Love the beautiful sky in the background and the scroll styled sentiment is so pretty!

Thanks so much for joining us at CASology! :)

Welcome to my craft room!! I colored a very detailed image with copics that took forever to finish.....my nephew tried to eat it today. In the garbage can it went. Your card was worth making tree times because it's going to make someone smile big time! Love the bright blue and that smilin star! LOVE it!

P/s: I hate accidents...I always end up adding something to cover up..lol

WOW! That sky stamp is magnificent, Benzi! Great idea to fussy cut the star and pop it up. So sorry you had to do the card 3 times. Hate to admit I've done that myself, one time because I did the card upside down, not once but twice! Sigh...

Tracey McNeely said...

Love that rich beautiful bold sky! Sweet smiling star shining from above! It puts a big smile on my face for sure! Sorry about having to go through the process or redoing your card. I've been there myself. And, I'm glad your end result was well worth it! Take care, hugs!:-)
