You’re a Star–MFT September Hits & Highlights


We’re giving our team some leeway this month and we’re confident they’re going to blow our minds with creative spins on this month's Hits & Highlights challenge. Today, check out how they’ve reached for the stars creating around the idea *of* stars. Click through to see how they’ve interpreted the idea…you might find colorful galactic scenes, you might find brilliant performers belting it out on a brilliantly lit stage, you might find a simple graphic shaker design featuring one of our star shaker pouches. There are so many possibilities this month and we’re excited for you to see them all!


How about a rainbow of stars? Hard to beat that combo, amirite? So, I started by dry embossing some Sweet Tooth card stock with Star Celebration Stencil and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape. Then I cut a bunch of stars with Inside & Out Stitched Stars Die-namics from a rainbow selection of card stock: Wild Cherry, Orange Zest, Lemon Drop, Sour Apple, Blu Raspberry, Blue Breeze, Grape Jelly, and Razzle Berry. I arranged them how I wanted them and adhered them with foam tape—some one layer and some two for added dimension.


Once I had them all adhered, I cut Shining Stars Die-namics from Silver Sparkle card stock and heat embossed the sentiment from Written in the Stars Stamp Set on Heavyweight Vellum. I adhered the vellum strip to the “Stars” die cut and adhered the die cut to the card front with foam tape—thus not needing to add any adhesive to the vellum.

And that’s it from me—love this month’s theme! Be sure to stop by the
