Shop Pumpkin Spice challenge: Stars or Fireworks

  Welcome to the Shop Pumpkin Spice monthly blog hop and weekly challenge.  If you are hopping along with us, you should have arrived from Saundra's blog.


This week's challenge:


Stars or Fireworks

  I used various card stock from my Yankee Doodles kit from Shop Pumpkin Spice.  Both the blue and the red Bazzill card stocks are already embossed with those little dots!  I particularly like the heavy weight white card stock in the kit because it works perfectly with ProMarkers, Copic markers, etcetera but it also embosses more crisply!  I embossed my white banner with the Cuttlebug "Stars" embossing folder.  All of the pieces were cut from my Cricut "Creative Cards" cartridge.  And I added glossy accents to my red and grey star for dimension.

  I have not decided on a sentiment since I am undecided if this will be a card for a hero (Operation Write Home) or an all-star dad and husband :)

Your next stop on the hop is Carissa.  Happy hopping!
