Stars - altered box

Hi All

The challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show this week is STARS and Maddie (my daughter) just loves anything to do with them, so I thought I would alter a box for her. She is also a No:1 Star to me (hence the tag and banner).

Supplies used
Star paper (from Costco)
TH Rosette die
Stampotique banner stamp
Various embellishments, silver paper stars run through an embossing folder, painted black with some of it rubbed off and the little stars sandpapered.

I have used the rosette die again to make the large star shape (Remember my heart? See tutorials above). I think it has worked quite well, especially with a punched star on it. If anyone is interested in how it's made I will happily do another tutorial. I stamped some 200gm card with a text and music stamp before cutting the die, then made it up in the normal way. Maddie's name was computer generated using an old typewriter font.

Challenges to have fun with
Art Impressions - Punches
Charisma - Die Cuts
Cute Card Thursday - Music/Dance  - This links to one of my favourite songs STARS by SIMPLY RED
Wild Orchid - dies/punches
Scrap Creations - Anything Goes
Bling It On - Anything Goes

Have a wonderful weekend - I hope to as it's my birthday tomorrow. We will just be having a few friends round in the evening for drinks and Pizza.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
