What a mouthful! I did a double challenge today: Stamp Something's was to stamp something in red, white & blue, but it couldn't be a card. Our Creative Corner's was to use Basic Grey paper. So I combined the two and made some patriotic 6-pointed stars:
These stars have been around for a while, but I found some video directions here. Since Basic Grey's small pads of paper are 6x6, they were very easy to make--no cutting involved! I have to confess, there is no stamping involved either! Unless you count the fact that I stamped the star from Nursery Necessities on the back of the paper to use as a pattern for my center star shape! I just haven't gotten that SU Star Punch yet!
- Stamps: Nursery Necessities
- Paper: Basic Grey Figgy & Boxer
- Ink: Night of Navy & Bravo Burgundy (for shading)
- Acc: Small Star Punch, Brads, Dauber, Pop-up Glue Dots, punch & string
With the little leftover triangle piece cut from the 6-pointed star, I made a couple Christmas cards with some more BG paper. Now I'm on my way to starting my stash!
I used Always Artichoke paper, Bravo Burgundy ink and the sentiment is from PTI's Mixed Messages.
Thanks for looking!
