All stars for Watercooler Wednesday! #WWC51

It has been a while sense I had the chance to participate in a Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  I had a strange fall, hectic holiday, and just getting back to stamping on a daily basis.  This weekend I got the opportunity to spend some extra time in the craft area “it’s kinda spread out”.  This meant that I had the chance to play along with some of my favorite challenges.  Yahooooooo!!!!

Over at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge, they are having a clean and simple (CAS) challenge with starts.




I reached for the obvious choice Be the Star stamp set.  I love this set and it has been a while sense I had it out.  So, I am glad that Bev over at Watercooler Wednesday come up with this challenge.


Be A Star


The color inspiration was is the Sale-A-Bration paper Wildflower Fields.  Hello Honey, Blackberry Bliss, and Lost Lagoon.  141022O5

It is easy to get this paper for FREE right now.  All you have to do is spend $50 with Stampin’ UP!



The stars are stamped in Lost Lagoon and Blackberry Bliss on Whisper White Paper.  Then cut out using the Stars Framelits Dies.  I also cut out a star in each size in Lost Lagoon and Blackberry Bliss.  The sentiment was stamped in Lost Lagoon and made into a banner using the Triple Banner Punch.  The card base and panel for the card are both Hello Honey.  The panel was embossed using the Zig Zag textured Impressions embossing folder.

A few tips:

  1.  The Zig Zag panel brings much-needed interest to the background without talking away from the stars.  It also mimics the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper used behind the sentiment.
  2. Placing the star and the banner panel at an angle brings your eye into the Sentiment!
  3. Glue the banner panel to the Hello Honey Zig Zag panel before you add it to the card base.  This makes it easy to cut off access paper.
  4. The Hello Honey Panel being the same color as the card base allows for the stars to really shine bright!
  5. Adding a Stampin’ Dimentional between the two layers of stars gave so depth to the card!
