Catch a Falling Star...

...and put it in your pocket :-).

I got the lovely stamp 'Catch a Falling Star' by Leanne Ellis from the Sugar Nellie Stamps shop online.

This is the card I made with it yesterday:

The base card is 6 x 6 inches (again...I have a thing for big squares just now ;-). The little 'sticks' poking out from under the main image layer were an accident...I had trimmed bits lying about and they got caught up behind the main image, and then I thought they kinda looked cool, so I added more...et voila! There is Crystal Effects on the red flower in her hair, on the dots on her skirt and on the star.

I am going to put a sentiment in the bottom left hand corner of the Whisper White layer...but didn't get around to it before snapping these shots. I'll use a Stampin' Up! rub-on because these are the BEST. Have I mentioned that before...Hmmmmm?

Ingredients (all from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):

Stamps: Catch a Falling Star (Leanne Ellis for Sugar Nellie Stamps)
Cardstock: Night of Navy (textured), Riding Hood Red, Summer Sun and Whisper White
Ink: various Copic Markers
Accessories: Good Morning Sunshine DSP, Crystal Effects, SNAIL and Dimensionals.

While I was outside taking snaps the kids were hovering about going 'take one of me Mum, take one of me'...so I did:

Mr Almost-three is far too quick for me...this shot was out of focus on the left hand side...so I just cropped it out!

And another fabulous Autumn day draws to a close...

See ya!

It's amazing how a little mistake can be sooo FABULOUS!!! I think those stix of colour are stunning - the whole card is so bright and cheery! And so are your lovely kids, I like shots like those!!

Hi Sam,

now this is a little person I could use. She's not too cute, and I love those striped legs. Isn't it gratifying when a mistake turns out better than what you originally planned? Those little offcuts make it quirky and it looks good.

Holiday time...lots of spare time to play with stamps! Who needs sleep?

love, Carolann

What a fortuitious accident...I think those little stix of colour make it super fun...reminds me of that kids game Pick Up Stix...
Anyway, that image is just adorable and the whole card is just cute and fun...love it ♥
