CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – Swinging on a Star

This month on Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hops, we plan on getting you to sing along with some “oldies, but goodies’. This week our song is “Swinging on a Star”…cards featuring a star theme!  Plenty of star images in the catalog, so it was hard to settle on which one to use!  I went with a bright birthday theme!


Confetti Celebrations 2

Here are the details:


  • The base is5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Watermelon Wonder cardstock, folded in half.
  • The 3-3/4 x 5 layer of Whisper White was embossed with the Stars embossing folder.
  • I used the Star Framelits to cut the Cucumber Crush Polka Dot Star (In Color Designer Paper) and the Gold Metallic Star.
  • The Yay! greeting from Confetti Celebrations was stamped with Watermelon Wonder Ink on Whisper White, then punched with Star Punch.
  • The stars were put together with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added to the front.
  • The It’s Your Day greeting from Confetti Celebrations was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Watermelon Wonder cardstock, the punched with the new Classic Label Punch.
  • Some Rhinestones were added to the background!
