You know how we love our Try Day Friday series! Each Friday afternoon on our Facebook page, our concept designer Shannon Smith shares a new technique with you LIVE. Isn’t that so fun? This week Shannon used our Animated Stars! You can see the video right here. Make sure you leave Shannon a comment and let her know how much you enjoyed the project.
Don’t you just love them? AAAND, not a card in sight but still techniques you could use on a card or any project! Shannon took a few simple FSJ products and turned them into something you can use in your home on any patriotic holiday. Let’s take a closer look!
The Animated Stars are just so fun to use and obviously create the most adorable decor. The stars are each painted using our Beach Ball Acrylic Paint .Whip Cream Acrylic Paint . andCandy Apple Acrylic Paint to give a festive, yet simple base. Then the fun comes in with several stamp sets and different parts featured on each one? Like this blue star with it’s flag from the Old Glory Stamp Set. We love how Shannon stamped the flag twice, then trimmed out the stars and used a Foam Square to pop it up. So fun & festive!
And the lovely USA stamp with the stars in the letters?! Even better when coated with a hearty coat of our Journey Sparkle Dust, don’t you think? It’s a twist that makes it so festive but really is so simple to do. [Use your Journey Glaze all over where you’d like it to sparkle, then add the Sparkle Dust!]
We knew you were going to want to see that up close — it’s just so pretty!
The Candy Apple star really pops, don’t you think? Then adding two stamp sets pieced together? Absolutely so cute, don’t you think? The bunting and the fireworks from the Old Glory and Freedom Sparkle stamp sets are just perfect together.
