In the Stars

I'm loving the "In the Stars" set (in the Summer mini). I've always liked stars, and I love that you can use them for boys and girls of all ages. It's even got a baby stamp in the set (after all, aren't all babies little stars??). I used a metal-edged tag on this card to make it extra-special. When using these tags, I find it easier to stamp on a separate piece of cardstock, punch it out with a circle punch and then stick that to the tag, rather than trying to stamp straight onto the tag itself. I then attached my tag to a scallop circle.
I hadn't tried this colour combo before, but I really like these colours together...Groovy Guava, Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose. The words 'one of a kind' are a rub-on. The scallop edge at the bottom complements the Scallop circle, and I finished it off with some gel pen dots in the centre of each scallop.

  1. Hi ho Marelle! What a lovely colour combo - I would never have thought to put that together!

    Love it!


  2. Very nice card, and love the colour combo, I would not have thought of putting them together. thanks for the inspiration

  3. love the colour combo... I've found that Groovy Guava seems to work really well with pink - and not so much with the oranges I thought it would.

    PS.... Among my friends I've apparently renamed GG to "Gwoovy Grava" .....somehow that is what is coming out :D

  4. Marelle, This is beautiful, i love it! The colours reallt set it off.
