Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge-Stars and MFT

Happy Monday! The Simon Says Stamps Wednesday challenge for this week is Stars, and using MFT products. It’s almost like they knew I just bought that adorable star shaker window and frame die set!

I actually have two cards for the challenge this week. I just so happened to make a card using Simon Says Stamps Seeing Stars kit, with mica spray and a sentiment from MFT’s Counting Stars. There are also some Liquid Perfect Pearls dots in Pewter, and Sparkling Clear Confetti sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. The black panel was layered on the Gray Grout card base with black fun foam.

The second card is a card I made for my Niece’s 16th birthday. I used the new Star Window and Frame die set from MFT, along with the star pouch. I used the technique where you adhere acetate to the back of the shaker element, to make it easier to line up. I did this because I wanted to use the piece cut from the inside of the frame as the background for the shaker.

I also used the Celebrate die, and the Number Confetti dies to cut out 16. The were a little bit much for the shaker size, but still worked out. I glued one each of the 1 and 6 to the shaker background so at least one set of the numbers would be readable.

I decided to use small confetti sequins due to the size of the numbers and the lack of room. Plus, they are tiny stars :). I finished off the card with some Pool Jewels from Lucy’s Cards. I used MFT’s Silver Sparkle paper for the numbers, and Cornflower Blue Sparkle paper for the celebrate, which I layered on three white die cuts first.

Oh, the panel I used for the shaker frame and background was one of the panels I made with Distress Oxide inks. My Niece’s favorite color is green, so I used the Cracked Pistachio and Broken China panel. And the white panel was mounted on the Sno-Cone card base with fun foam.

Both cards came together pretty quickly. The shaker elements from MFT really speed up the process. I’m glad I had the opportunity to use it this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by!
