Project Description

Moon & Stars Card

For this week’s project I wanted to use a couple of stamps that I have had for a while. The sentiment that I used was one of the very first stamps I bought from Viva Las Vegastamps! It reads, “We already have the moon. Let’s not ask for the stars.” It has always made me think of something from an old black and white movie, so I paired it with a stamp called Moon Lovers that shows a man and a woman embracing on a crescent moon.

To further add to my theme, I used a Tim Holtz filmstrip ribbon with my stamped image behind each cell. I wanted my card to look like a scene from the filmstrip coming to life. For my sentiment, I stamped with Versafine Ink on vellum so that you could see the starry background behind it. I put some Ultra High Gloss Embossing Powder over it to make it stand out.

Please visit the Viva Las Vegastamps! blog for more great ideas and to see what the rest of the design team has been doing. Thanks for stopping by!

    Another awesome card Joe! This one would make a perfect anniversary card… or Valentines Day… or just a "thinking about someone" card… :0)

    I don't know where to start! The film strip is ingenious!!! The way the main focal point floats on the star background plus the use of the velum give it an ethereal look. This card has "star quality" !

    I also wanted to say how much I appreciate your clear and concise way of explaining the elements, theme and products used on your card. Great Job! TFS!

    This is my kind of card, Joe! I'm a huge movie buff, so this would be an extremely appropriate card from my better half. Terrific card! 🙂
