{Spotlight Project} Monika Reaches For The Stars

Hello STAMPlorations Friends! Today's projects are putting the spotlight on the Shooting Stars stencil. If you love stars, you'll find this stencil to be a very useful addition to your stash.

I used it to make a trio of one layer cards, here they are:


I decided on which one of the stars I wanted to use and picked a sentiment to go with it. Then I simply moved the stencil across my cream square base card to find my ideal placement. Once I was happy, I secured the stencil and used my little brushes to stencil the stars.

Once the stencil was removed, I stamped my sentiment in place and my card was finished.

I rather enjoyed myself and continued to play.

Again the placement of the stars and sentiment were important. I first tried it on the stencil itself to see how they might work together before moving both over my base card.

Once I was happy the stencil got secured, the colour was applied and I finished off with my stamped sentiment.

Shooting stars can also make great Christmas cards. Here is a quick CAS take on that.

The steps were the same as with my other cards.

I used a little bit of orange around the edges to add more depth to the yellow stars.


These are the products I used from the STAMPlorations Shop to make my cards.

That's it from me for today. Wishing you a lovely week.
Monika ❤

  6. Love how bright the colors are on all three. The rainbow of color is really pretty.

  7. Great use of the stencil ..which brushes did you use?

    1. I used small make up brushes normally used for applying eye shadow. They're really great for use on small areas.

  8. Pretty stars and I like the colors you used.

  9. Sensational colors to feature these stars.

  10. Great look at the stencil set. Nice way to add color with the brushes.

  11. Thank you for this wonderful tutorial on using the shooting stars stencil. So many really fun ideas!
