CR84FN66 - You're My Star ....

.... Here I am with my second card using our CR84FN66 colours of grey, tan and cream.  I've gone for a very contemporary, graphic look this time - a complete contrast to last week's card!


Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Off Beat Backgrounds, Seasons of Love - Tags; Stampin' Up - Word Play
Inks: Memento - London Fog; Stampin' Up! - Crumb Cake
Spellbinders: Stars (S4-092) #1, 3 and5
Accessories:  Kanban Design Paper - Platinum Collection; SU Card - Crumb Cake; Card from stash

I made this one for my son Ben.  I like to send him a card every couple of weeks, just so that he remembers we are here!!  I think being on the other side of the Atlantic he tends to forget us, or maybe it's just a teenage thing :)  Ben is at college and working on several A level courses and sometimes he needs a bit of encouragement - I added a sentiment inside which I hope will inspire him.

I used another sheet of paper from the Kanban Platinum collection to make the backing layer and a couple of the stars.  I really like this chevron stamp - just great for a guy card.  I started by stamping the grey set, followed by Crumb Cake and then the light grey, which is the second impression of London Fog.  I cut the stars with my Spellbinders and stamped the Crumb Cake star with polka dots to add interest.  I finished off the front of the card with this sentiment - a perfect match.



For more inspiration cards from the Design Team - check out the CR84FN blog or click on the links in my side bar.  That's all for now.  Have a great day.

super for Ben & a lovely way of showing what can be done with this colour palette. Lovely touch with the way your stamping picks up the pointiness of the stars.
