Stamping In My PJ's!

Hi everyone, we are having lots of fun over in the Hanna Stamps Members Forum of SCS today ... we are all "Stamping in our PJ's"! If you have some time come on over and check it out ... we have a bunch of fun challenges which you can do .... and there are prizes!!!!!!! Don't ya just love prizes ... I know I do ;) .... you have until Monday evening to upload your cards to the SCS gallery to be in with a chance to win!

Now not much of a big deal I guess stamping in your PJ's esp for you guys in the Northern Hemisphere cause it is night time there ... but it here is mid morning hahaha so of course I have to wear my PJ's too .... they are owl PJ's so I don't mind! Actually sometimes I get so engrossed in what I am stamping I do forget to get dressed until that card is made so really it isn't a great sacrifice I am making!

One of the challenges today is one I am hosting ....

Star Light Star bright,
The first star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.

Create a card which includes a star/stars .... you can use your stamps star punches; DP; star brads ... whatever you wish.


I made two cards for this challenge ... the first one is another twistaflex card ... I have had fun making these. I also had fun playing with the new Riley stamps by Hanna Stamps .... which are also being released tonight .... it has been so hard keeping this a secret for the last few weeks cause I love the new Riley stamps ... there are 20 new ones plus the new "words Riley would say" set and they are so much fun!!!!!!! I will have a few more cards that I made for the challenges which I will share with you all this week!

Here is a close up of the front of my card ... the star was created using my circut.

Recipe:
Stamps: Cowboy Riley - Hanna Stamps; Sentiment - The Cat's Pajama's; Wire - Lucy's Stamps
Paper: White; Black; Cranberry Crisp - SU; DP - Basic Grey
Other: Black Ink; Real Rust SU Ink; George Cricut Cartridge; Black Pearls; Black Grosgrain Ribbon


Here is my second card for this challenge ... using the new Baby Riley ... isn't he/she adorable. I made mine a boy card for the simple reason that I only needed the 3 stars to spell out the word "Boy" ... this was actually a sketch I found online ... unfortunately I forgot to write down where I got this one from ... so if this is yours or you know please leave a comment so I can edit this to give proper credit!

I used the star wheel to create the background for this card and punched out 3 stars to use for the word "BOY"

The centre panel behind the circles was created using the baby cuttlebug embossing folder.

Recipe:
Stamps: Baby Riley - Hanna Stamps; Star Wheel - SU
Paper: White; Bashful Blue & Brilliant Blue - SU
Other: Black Ink; Bashful Blue SU Ink; Circle Nestabilities; Baby Cuttlebug Embossing Folder; Bashful Blue & Brocade Blue SU Grosgrain Ribbon; Star Punch; Rub On Letters; Foam Tape
