Introduction to In Color Class – Starry Sky

The third project from my annual Introduction to In Color Class is this scrunched Birthday Card for Starry Sky.

The new In Color of Starry Sky combines with Old Olive, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla for a grungey feel.

It is a similar design layout to the project on page 53 of the Annual Catalogue using the new Decorative Circle Punch.

The background piece is given a good scrunching before being stuck to the layer at an angle.

Next, the shapes are given different levels of scrunching and two of them are stuck down.

The centre shape has a piece of the the coordinating Metallic Woven Ribbon wrapped around it.

Two lengths of the ribbon are then stuck to the back, the ends tied and then frayed up to the knot.

A sentiment from the Sending Smiles Stamp Set is then cut out by hand and also stuck to one edge of the Crumb Cake shape.

Using Dimensionals and Mini Dimensionals, the whole shape, with the overhanging edge of the sentiment are stuck to the card to raise it up.

Finally, some coordinating Matte Decorative Dots are added.

This design has so many different ways in which it can be created, from grunge, Sponge Daubers, stamping, DSP, clean lines and more.

Why not make your own version? I’d love to see it.

Sending smiles across the miles

A very talented friend is off to China this weekend to play a lead role in a musical.

This friend loves sunflowers so the Painted Harvest Stamp Set was the obvious choice.

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest

I combined Crushed Curry and Chocolate Chip for the sunflowers.  There is Wink of Stella in the centre of each flower for a bit of sparkle too.

‘Sending smiles across the miles’ from the Lift Me Up Stamp Set is a sentiment I never thought I’d use.  As they are way on tour for five months, it was the perfect opportunity to ink it up for the first time.

The sentiment fits nicely into the Pretty Label punch with the new Everyday Label Punch from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue as a background layer.

A strip of Burlap Ribbon across the card for the sentiment to sit on completes the project.

Happy crafting
