Hi stampers! Today we have lots of colourful projects using the Stars Rubber Stamp Set!
First, Joy Taylor shows how to stamp onto vellum and colour with Distress Inks:
1. From the Stars stamp set, I took out 2 stars that really stood out. For the larger star, I decided to use some vellum and white embossing and trim around the star.
2. The next star I stamped and applied white embossing powder once again, this time stamping onto scratch piece of white card stock.
3. Taking out Distress Inks, Twisted Citron, Blueprint Sketch and Hickory Smoke, applying heavily over the embossed stars with Mini Ink Blending Tool.
4. Spritzing and adding droplets of water of the distress ink, causing it to wick.
5. Trim these inked stars out and adhere all stars in a collage effect to the top right hand corner of a trimmed white card, making sure to add a little extra with sewing thread under the vellum star.
6. Next, work on the sentiment area, deciding the card really needed something else for those stars to stand out, so I took some white card stock, trimmed to about 1 inch wide and added black glitter tape and a stamped sentiment from the Happy Birthday stamp set, stamped with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
7. Finishing off the card with a scattering of clear sequins.
Liesbeth Fidder is in the festive spirit and created two Christmas cards with the Stars!
I took a white double card and draw a vertical line on the middle of the front with a pencil. I stamped the big mesh star at the centre of the card with pink ink, and onto a piece of masking paper as well, and masked the star. I stamped the other two stars using two different red inks and after that I removed the mask. I cut away the paper on the right side of the pencil line (except of the stars of course). The text was stamped with black ink. I sprayed the inside of the card with water first, and also with pink and red Dylusions spray, let dry well. Erase the pencil line if necessary. I finished the card by adding a bit of Stickles on the stars and the inside edges.
Here's a similar card with blue tones:
This card is made almost the same way, with three different stars in three different colours of blue ink. This time I finished the card with one of the small stars from the Stars stamp set, and with Stickles again.
Connie Mercer has created two vintage style cards using the Stars:
1. Stamp the Stars on coordinating paper. On a regular size card, two medium and two large fit nicely. Fussy cut them out and add shimmer to them. There are several different ways to do that, glitter or glitter pen.
2. Thread four buttons with twine and adhere them to the center of the stars.
3. Stamp a sentiment for the center of the card from the Simple Sayings Rubber Stamp Set. 4. Place the Stars and the sentiment on the front of a matted card. Arrange to your liking. Add corners. Speckle with white texture spray. Card size is 5 x 5.
1. Stamp the Pine Leaf, two times, in Evergreen Ink. Fussy cut them out. Shade with ink if you like.
2. Stamp two Stars, a medium and large in red and black ink. Fussy cut them out. Stamp the sentiment from the Merry Christmas Rubber Stamp Set and fussy cut it out. Add shimmer to the Stars, Pine Leaves and the sentiment.
3. Use the straight stitch stamp from the Stitched Borders set to outline the mat.
4. Stamp each side with the French Script Texture Stamp. Adhere the mat to the card and all elements to the card front. Add corners and sentiment. Speckle with white texture spray.
Here's a card by Rachel Greig using masking:
1. Stamp the large mesh star using Archival Vermillion Ink onto white cardstock. Stamp again onto a post it note and trim around image to create a mask. Place over the stamped star on the white cardstock.
2. Stamp the crackle star using Archival Cornflower Blue Ink, and again onto a post it note to create a mask for that star too. Place the mask over the star.
3. Stamp the striped star using Archival Vermillion ink and again, create another mask for this star.
4. Stamp the sketched outline star on the left side of the white cardstock using Corbflower Blue ink and create a mask for this star.
5. With all four masks in place over the four stamped stars, randomly stamp the smaller stars around the edges in both the Vermillion and Cornflower Blue ink pads. Lift off the masks when finished.
6. Stamp sentiment from Party Time Rubber Stamp Set onto white card and mount onto light blue cardstock. Adhere over stamped stars with foam adhesive.
7. Mount stamped panel onto light blue cardstock and then onto a folded red card.
To finish off, Suzz Czosek has created a wonderful festive card with lots of glitter!
I started with a mix of splatters of silver and gold. I then stamped some stars using the Stars Rubber Stamp Set in silver and gold inks. (Tsukineko Glitz). I fussy cut a bunch of the different stars in shapes and sizes to layer in the mix. Then because I wanted even more glitz and glamour for the card, I sprinkled liberally the Stampendous Gold Luxe Mix over the surface. I also stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Simple Sayings Rubber Stamp Set in the pretty silver ink.
