A versatile shooting star

Hello! I was inspired by my fellow design team member's shooting star creation this week, so I thought I'd create my own cards with this Victorine Originals Celestial stamp set.

The first card I made for my niece's 2nd birthday that is this weekend. I used distress oxide inks for my background - smooshing, splattering and drying in layers. I added a spritz of pearl paint over the top, too, to give it more shimmer.

I wanted the shooting stars to be fun and whimsical, so I used different colors and different directions to put them all over my card. Then, I grabbed the wonderful Raisin Boat Flourishing Thoughts stamp set.

I put my sentiment on a separate piece of paper, and then added the shimmer spray over the top again - it kind of gave the sentiment a water-color effect, but I'm okay with that since it goes with the rest of the card. I matted it on a piece of coordinating cardstock and used pop dots to pop it off the card. To finish it off, I added clear sparkles all over.


Since I was having so much fun with both the distress oxide inks and the shooting star stamp, I decided to make a second card with a totally different theme.

I used the distress oxide inks for my background, and then topped it with the pearl paint shimmer spray.

I stamped the shooting star stamp multiple times along the side of my card, and then I added a Christmas sentiment. I love the font and everything about the Victorine Originals Celebrate the Season stamp.

To make the sentiment pop a bit more, I embossed it with an opalescent embossing powder, which gives it an awesome shine. I finished off my card with some coordinating colors of Nuvo drops.
