PPA99 - CAS Element of Style - Stars

Hello Friends!  Today is Thursday which brings another Pals Paper Arts challenge.  This week we are featuring clean and simple with an emphasis on stars and/or military.  Let's see those patriotic cards this week.  Ready for some inspiration ... take it away with Bette Milder!

Ppa99starsmilitary

This was a fun card for me.  I love the happiness that red, white and blue represent ... sure to put a smile on everyone's face.  When I was looking through my "current" stamps, I came to realize that I didn't have any stars.  The only star that I found was in a Christmas set.  The inky fingers went to play and created this ...

Stamps:  Christmas Classics, Itty Bitty Bits
Paper:  White, Real Red, Pacific Point
DSP:  Real Red
Ink:  Real Red, Pacific Point
Accessories:  Itty Bitty punch, pearls, Real Red ribbon, designer button, dimensionals, glue dots
All products are Stampin' Up.

  • I snipped a thin strip of Pacific Point cardstock and used that to tie a knot in my button.
  • I popped up the smaller stars from Itty Bitty Bits on dimensionals to give the larger stars definition.
As always, thanks for stopping by and I always read and appreciate the comments that you leave.

Have a great day,
Pam~

You sent me digging through the IB&C, had to see it for myself, didn't remember that star with the Christmas stamps....sure enough there it is. Who would have known..GREAT JOB! I fall short on anything with stars as well.
