I made a star shaped card for Jeanne's Ship Shape challenge...used a ruler and a craft knife to make a star shape a bit larger than the largest Nestie Star, then added various little ones using Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Stars dies. Stars work well for shaped cards as the double points at the bottom make it sit really well - just scored and folded a bit at the top point of the back and glued the back to the front. Added a couple of dark pink star gems and pearls to finish. Looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with for this, I'll be looking for ideas!
Have you ever lost a little cling stamp - when I cleaned up after making this card, I couldn't find the "dream big" stamp - I'm so mad at myself, I love this set!!! Maybe it'll turn up somewhere...

Oh it will turn up, Bridget. I do that and then fret. Usually it's stuck to the bottom of the box or ink pad. I'll bet you dug through the trash three times. I can't believe you used a ruler and craft knife to do the star. I can't even draw a perfect star! Such a great, great selection of sizes and elements, too. Sending positive thoughts on finding the stamp.
