Introducing Simple Stars...

Hello there!  It's time for our first group post for Papertrey Ink's April Release.  Today's set is one of my favorite of the release.  Ok....maybe I will say that about everything but I do really love these set!  Our challenge was to find some Pinterest inspiration and  make something masculine and feminine using the Simple Stars set and Cover Plate: Stars.  

My first card was inspired by a picture I found of a blanket.  I adore this color combo and had to go with it! 


Seeing these colors, I  made my first card with  my daughter in mind.  It is super simple to make but still so girly and elegant.

I used the cover plate to emboss the card base.  I used Background Basics: Super Stripes and stamped a row in Sweet Blush.  I added in a sentiment in gray over the top, then popped it up on foam tape for some dimension.

I found this adorable picture of a little boys nursery in navy and yellow...



and was instantly inspired to make this card...

Can you tell I love Super Stripes?  Yes, I used it again here and covered a piece of white card stock in stripes and then used the Stars cover plate.  I layered it up with some Lemon Tart card stock and stamped the simple sentiment.

  10. Two great cards. I like the thought of using the cover plate as a stencil. The white-on-white look is a classical beauty.
