Wish Upon A Star

Hello, my crafty friends! I’m super stoked to be participating in the Gecko Galz Tricks & Treats Blog Hop and have decided to showcase each of my blog hop projects individually so I can enjoy sharing them in some challenges. All five of my cards feature images from the very awesome Retro Cuties Collage Sheet which I’m giving away on my blog, so be sure to check out all the details in my blog post HERE and join us for the hop!


The sentiment used on the front of this card is from the Gecko Galz Charming Words Collage Set. This was a super fun card to put together and I loved matching the colors in the image and layering the elements. I created the background with some papers from my scrap stash and layered them on the denim cardstock. I layered the sassy lady image on a dotted rectangle die cut and placed a primitive star die cut beneath it. I used star sequins adorned with seed beads. You can’t see it in the photos, but I added some sparkle to the stars on the image with a Gelly Roll pen.


I decorated the inside panel with leftover strips of the dotted paper and cardstock used on the front, and then stamped a birthday sentiment.


One final look… really loving how this turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
