Twofer Card Challenge #13 February 2019 - Stars

Hi Friends,
My cards for today are for the February Twofer Card Challenge and the theme is Stars.  I used a stencil from Simon Says Stamp called Falling Stars as the common image.
On the Birthday card I used Wendy Vecchi Metallic Silver Embossing Paste on the background The background of the space card was Smooshed with Distress Inks and then embossed with the Metallic Silver Embossing Paste.  It was then cut with a stitched Rectangle Die and matted with Basic Black.  The images where watercoloured, die cut and mounted on Foam Tape.  The sentiment is White embossed on Basic Black Card.  I added a bit of the background to the inside with another stamped and watercoloured image.
The Bear is a layered 3 Step Stamp, I fussy cut the bear and blue bow.  The Background stars were sponged with Balmy Blue Ink and the white matt behind the bear is dry embossed with the Lucky Stars E/Folder. I finished off the inside with the sentiment and little Bear in Smokey Slate.

CAS Mix Up Reminder - February 2019 - Dimensional Die Cuts

Good Morning Stampers,
Today's post is for February's CAS Mix Up Challenge, Hideko is Hostess and wants us to use Dimensional Die-cuts + Stamping + Your Choice.  I sponged Distress Ink on my card, splattered the sponging with Water and when it was dry I Taped the back of my card where I was going to die cut the background.  I die cut the pattern and then put foam on the small diamond die cut pieces to give them dimension.  I then cut the Daisy flowers with the Succulent Framelit Dies, cut them in half  layed them on top of each other.  The centre is the little cherry from the Build a Cupcake Punch, which I sponged with Crushed Curry Ink after cutting the stem off. I then arranged the flowers and stems on the background and finished off with the Sentiment.
