I'm so excited to be guest designing for Mama Elephant this month! Today, I'm showcasing two of their new stamp sets: Starry Night & Cosmic Star, which are both available for purchase in the Mama Elephant store.
First up is a card that I made using both Starry Night & Cosmic Star. I stamped the star background on some dark grey cardstock in Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I diecut the cardstock, on which I added strips of patterned paper and washi tape, as well as my sentiments (from Starry Night) and image (from Cosmic Star). I paper pieced the little Virgo image using coordinating patterned papers.
I just loved the little crab image in Cosmic Star and decided to make him the star of my next card. I stamped him a little beach scene and framed it in a polaroid diecut. I mounted it on some My Mind's Eye patterned paper and added some twine and buttons. The "happy birthday" sentiment is from Starry Night.
I'm also linking both of these projects up for this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge: paper-piecing.
Thanks for looking!
