Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Papercraft Star Challenge



Happy Sunday,

I have a brand “New to Me”  Challenge site that I came across as I was

surfing the blogosphere the other day.

 It is called Papercraft Star.


They are celebrating there 3rd year and a new look and have

a beautiful inspiration photo challenge that really caught my eye!

Here is the fabulous photo:


They also are giving away some Blog candy just for commenting….that’s awesome!!!

Here is my card followed by some step by step photos of the process!

The ink is a mixture of Stampin Up, Colorbox and Studio G.

It was done on Glossy Stampin Up card stock.






Here is where I made a big mistake and put my sponge in the

wrong ink pad…..I was so mad and might have said a bad word.

( I don’t recall) wink wink!

I forgot to take the photo of the one blue blob on my card…

so here is what I started to do to fix it!



So hubby suggested that I try to put some more orange over the clouds

and of course that turned them a little muddy! ( ones on the right)

Thanks anyways Honey!  He said, ” I was afraid of that.”

Never fear…I have a plan to cover them up! 🙂


I found these rub-ons in my odds and ends bin!  Love them!

The Meet Me Here was stamped the rest are rub-ons.

I thought the torn paper worked well as sand….haven’t done that in Forever!!!

Gosh I wish I had a shell of some sort to put on that twine!

And I live in Florida!  Ha Ha!



Hope you have a great rest of your day!

I so appreciate you stoppin’ in to visit!

Things will be quiet around here until next weekend!

See you then!
