Be Your Own Star!

Shhh - Don't tell anyone, but personally - I love Miley Cyrus music. Now that doesn't mean I run right out and buy anything associated with her or Hannah Montana. BUT - If it is on clearance it is fair game!! I found a bunch of HM stamps in cd case on clearance the the big box store a while back for 50 cents each! Of course I snatched them up. I figured that even though I probably will never use the images of HM, I will use a lot of the other stamps in the case. This is one of those stamps.

I used my Cricut and George to cut the stars. The ink is from CTMH and the cat eye shaped inks. The stamped image is heat embossed. Cream cardstock for the card base. Printed papers are from a stackpack. I distressed the edges of all the papers and popped the image and stars for more dimension. I am still fairly new to heat embossing, so it is a little difficult to read the e and o in the pictures - but in real life they are there.
