I have been stamping for a LONG time and I have amassed quite a collection of tools, so when Stampin' Up! came out with the new Simply Stars, I was so excited because the images fit perfectly in the retired Large and Small Star punches! But for the swaps I am in, we can only use current products. I did not realize how hard that was going to be with this set. Apparently, if I have it, I want to use it, lol! But I did manage to come up with a cute card anyway :)

This was another card for the Masculine cards swap. Once I started doing masculine cards, I had a hard time stopping! Sometimes your Mojo takes you in directions that are lovely, but not exactly what you need, hehe. I actually got to the point that I took all of the stamp pads for the colors I had already used in swaps and set them aside. I wanted a variety of color combos and realized I was in quite the blues/yellows/greens mood. But I still had some blues left to use.
  • Stamps: Yippe-Skippee!, Simply Stars, Bring on the Cake
  • Ink: Marina Mist, Smokey Slate, Soft Sky
  • Paper: Marina Mist, Naturals White, Smokey Slate Core'dinations
  • Other: Big Shot with Argyle embossing folder, Sanding Block, Signo white gel pen, Subtles and Neutrals Candy Dots
I think this is about as flat as my swaps got! I have a addiction to dimensionals :)

Great card! I love the diagonal and the colors are fantastic! Great card, even without the punches.

I love the stars! You did a great layout without the punches. The card is really nice. I can't wait to get this stamp set.

Neat card! I really like the strip of embossed (core'dinations?) paper that goes just above the stamped strip. Cool!
