day 3 STAMPlorations spotlight - Noteworthy


Welcome to day 3 of Spotlight Week - five new sets, one to be spotlighted each day this week. Ready?

Here is today's set - Noteworthy - another great handwritten set designed by Shery R.



Here is what I did with it when I saw "reach for the stars". Remember this card by Julie E. over at The Classroom? Well I blatantly CASEd it!


Check out Julie's video to see how it's done. Sooooo easy (but you will get really inky fingers ;) I used Studio Calico rub-on gold stars. And hit my moon with some Wink of Stella. See it twinkling in the photo below?


I love all the sentiments in this set. And the mix of fonts used with the handwriting. Check out what the other gals did with it, including our special guest this week, Darnell K. of the Playhouse. Hop around and leave comments by April 27th, there are great prizes up for grabs!

Since I have no stamped focal image, I'm joining the Ohne Motive challenge #130 at Cards and More too.

And I'm joining the lovely ladies at City Crafter challenge #258 where we are to pick any element of Ros's gorgeous card to use for our card. I've got lots of stars in my night sky.


Have a wonderful day.
