Lucky Stars


Hi readers! Happy Saturday to you! Today we’re counting our lucky stars to have the super talented Kelly Rasmussen as our guest! She’s whipped up a starry masterpiece combining some fun techniques with a super star outcome!



Hi there! My card today features lots of amazing products from Hero Arts newest release called Starry Nights. The Stylish Star Frame Cuts, Stars Pattern Stencil and Shoot for the Moon clear stamp all coordinate perfectly, which made this card so easy to put together.

I die cut the star from watercolor paper and used various Distress Inks to create the watercolor background. Once it was dry, I white heat embossed the sentiment. If you haven’t check out this stamp set yet…you must! It is full of awesome sentiments that I know I will be using over and over again.

To create the background behind the star, I used white embossing paste and the Stars stencil on a piece of vellum. And a scattering of clear sequins finished off the card! My favorite way to adhere sequins is with Micro Glue Dots — they are very secure and I don’t have to worry about making a mess on my finished card with liquid glue.

I want to send out a hugs thanks to Simon Says Stamp for having me as a guest!
Hope you enjoyed my card!


Thanks for reading today and thanks to Kelly for this SUPER inspiration!

  1. Thanks for sharing. I wondered if paste would work on vellum. I want to make this card. I think it is so awesome.

  2. The water-coloured star is gorgeous and I love the idea of stenciling over vellum–going into my “gotta try it” file. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Love this!! I have another star background die from you guys that I will use to adapt this design. Very cool.
