Saturday Creations ~ {You’re A Star}

Today’s Saturday Creation focuses on the stars in our Precious Remembrance Totally Stamp Set:

The background is made with distress inks and then spritzed with water to create the perfect night sky.  There are some tiny gems ~ can you see them? ~ to give the appearance of stars in the galaxy.  This card is for someone who used to play professional baseball.  (To read more about him, go to my blog).

000_4768Tip – I don’t like my handwriting so I stamped “You’re______ ” and then masked the stamp that says “that’s all” just to get the “a” and then stamped another star in black to make the sentiment POP!  I framed it all with the brushstroke stamp. EVERYTHING I stamped was coated in clear embossing powder and then heat set to give it a shiny appearance.

I hope you like it!

Here’s the PR Totally Stamp Set ~ so versatile!
