Shane’s 21st Card

Hello … I have so much to update … having been away … I have some NEW BUNDLES … and a NEW RECRUIT super offer (I will post these as soon as I get a free minute!)  … but I thought I would start with a card! I figured you might be hanging for some more “inspiration” … although there are plenty of amazing blogs out there in cyberstampingland … if you are ever stuck for ideas!!!

I actually made two cards for Shane’s Birthday ‘cos his dad wasn’t that impressed with my original attempt! It was a gel aquarium type card … and I thought it was cool … so I will show you that one another time! But … here is the 2nd attempt … and I must admit I do like this one!

I have used one of the sets from the SUMMER MINI catalogue. This is a set I am sure I will use over & over … some sets are just so versatile … and so easy to use. I decided to buy the two star punches when I bought this set because I knew that putting a card together would be so quick & easy with the stamp set combined with the punches! And … it REALLY was! You can even use the punches on some of the “uneven” stars if you like –eg: “happy” star on river rock card stamped with wasabi – top left of card  Or … you can cut them out by hand if you want to stay true to the shape – eg: Green spotty star –  top of card & largest stars! So … you can see I have used a combination of punched & hand cut.
