I’m loving our new Inspo List for the challenges and I hope you are as well. It’s such a great way to get the creativity going! For my card, I used the following as my inspiration: Encouragement - Blue - Orange - Stars - Superheros. The list made it really easy to pick a stamp set, color combo and embellishment to work with. I love that!
I knew I wanted to use the Here’s to Strong Women stamp set because the sentiments are super encouraging and let’s be honest, we all can use a little more of that in our lives, right? I was having a little bit of a struggle coming up with a layout though. So, I looked to Stampin’ Up to see ideas with this stamp set. Well, I loved the layout they shared so much I decided to CASE it with some different colors and elements.
This card comes together pretty easily. I used the Stitched Stars Dies to cut out stars in various sizes in Sparkle Glimmer Paper, because everything is better with a touch of sparkle. I heat embossed the sentiment in white on a Lovely Lipstick Stitched Nested Labels Die. Then I embossed the word “superpower” on a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and cut it out and popped it up to make it stand out a little more. To add the white “border” on either side of the Stitched Nested Label, I simply cut another one out in the same size, cut it in half and popped that little edge out on either side. Super easy, yet a fun detail.
For the background, I used the star stamp in the set to randomly stamp the image throughout, some of the images were stamped-off once to make them a little lighter.
