Wish upon a Star!

I was so VERY honoured to have been asked by Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace to be one of her sample makers for the Splitcoaststampers Dare to Get Dirty 2009 challenges.

Her challenge was called "Cut it Out" and we had to make a card with punches and/or die much fun and heaven knows I have a ton of punches and die-cuts, thanks to so many generous sponsors and companies! Thank you Thank you THANK YOU!!

So I got out my Stamping UP! star punches, Martha's star edge punch (which I got from Hope Stamps Eternal but they are selling like hotcakes and are gone!) and some Spellbinders classic inverted scallop dies and made up a little sumthin' sumthin'.....

I used Basic Grey June Bug for my designer paper and my card base is some delicious and I mean fabulous! new (to me) cardstock from Gina K Desi
gns called Pure Luxury -"In the Navy" and it is such a nice heavy weight - I LOVe it!!

I also used Papertrey Ink Summer Sunrise and you KNOW that I am totally in LOVe with that cardstock too......what's a girl to do?! I feel like the Bachelorette trying to pick the best one, but just loving them all..........okay, probably a bit too much?

The stamp set I used is from Papertrey Ink Star Prints. The sentiment is not a curved stamp but the acrylic stamps are so pliable and easy to bend that I HAD to do it!!

Tomorrow morning I will be on a plane to Florida to the Craft and Hobby Association Supershow - I keep saying it but I AM SO EXCITED!! You know, we used to have a little toy poodle (Winnie-the-Poodle) and everytime someone came in the door, or she got excited, she would pee.....I am that excited......

I have preposted for a couple of days so don't forget me!


  1. Cool Man!!! Love the stars and the cool Nestie Die!

  2. Gorgeous card Bonnie!
    You are so talented!

  3. I love the colors on this! So bold and lovely! That star punch border is rockin' too!

  4. Ok, just though you should know, since I didn't mention it previously...I am very jealous that your are going to CHA (probably on your way right now!) I can't wait to see pictures! Have a great time!
