Distressed Superstar

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday! Today I'm sharing with you a fun little card I made with the new Starstruck set. The color combo popped out at me from the scraps on my desk - a happy accident, because I never would have put these colors together normally.


I don't know what it is about it, but I recently have fallen in love with Dusty Durango. It's sat unused on my shelf since July and now, all the sudden, everything I make has to use this color! Weird how we got through stages like that, huh?

Anyhow, I was inspired to do a little distressing now that my hands are feeling a bit better. I had to smile because when I showed this card to Mark, he said, "That's totally YOU!" Awww, how sweet that he knows me so well! I started by doing some random stamping with the shooting stars and open stars both in Dusty Durango and Sage Shadow. I added some stitching to the durango panel, then sponged the edges of both panels and used my distressing tool to roughen up the edges.

For a cozy feel, I finally decided to stop hoarding the stitched felt ribbon I got from SU! last holiday season and tied it across the card with some hemp twine. The sentiment is stamped onto a diecut from the SU! Lots of Tags set, and I hand cut a small chocolate mat for it.

My FAVORITE part of the card is the star. Doesn't it look cool? I just love the look! I stamped the billowy star from Starstruck on Old Olive then punched out with the Large SU! star punch, then stamped the small open star inside the image and gave a little coating of Copper Stickles. Then I just hand cut a little chocolate border for the star and popped it up on dimensionals.

Okay, that's all on the stamping front for today. Thanks for stopping by!
