Creative Construction with Blueprints - Star Power


We love Blueprints because they take the guesswork out of crafting beautiful cards (and tags!) in quick fashion when we’re short on time or inspiration. We also love them for their versatility and ability to be mixed and matched when we have the time and inspiration to create something truly unique. Our Creative Construction Challenge focuses on these attributes each month, challenging the team to either assemble a card based on one of the provided Blueprints sketches or design an original design combining elements from the featured Blueprints.

Stars will never go out of style. From masculine looks to dreamy scenes, they have a way of adding something special to any project you include them on. Our team loves them too, and in this month’s collection of projects, they’ve used Blueprints featuring stars to craft spectacular looks worthy of any recipient or occasion.
Handmade card by Barbara Anders featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

Barbara created a dreamy watercolor background to feature her bold sentiment and glittery stars. Adding the white paint splatter to her night sky really adds to the overall look and makes it appear as though there are hundreds of stars behind her die cut galaxy.

Handmade card by Vika Salmina featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

Vika created a circular layering element and added her star frame on top. She accented the focal star even further by adding tiny stars all around the larger one. She completed the card design with a sentiment strip adhered across the star with foam adhesive for added dimension.
