Addicted to Stamps and More #229...

Hi! The new challenge is up at the Addicted to Stamps & More challenges this week and the theme is 

So we want to see all your creations that use clean and crisp lines, minimal or no embellishments and lots of 'white' space. 

This is also my favorite theme since I am very much a CAS girl.

I created a rather masculine card this time.

I started with a panel of white card stock that I cut with my DCAM Double Stitched Rectangle dies. I did some ink blending at the center of the panel with distress inks. Then I used my Gina Marie Stitched Star die to cut out a star. I wanted to 'dress up' my star a bit. So I stamped Script stamp by Kaisercraft with the Bronze metallic ink by Encore. I love this ink since it is very rich and has a beautiful shimmer. I distressed the edges a bit for more definition. Here is a closer look at my star.

I stamped the sentiment from the Let's Party stamp set by Mudra Craft Stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used the Stampaholic to get the perfect placement of my sentiment. I finished the card by adhering the star directly to the kraft card base and mounting the panel on some foam tape to pop it up.

Hope you like my clean and simple card and are inspired to create something beautiful. Please do visit the ATSM blog for some amazing inspiration by my team mates. Looking forward to seeing your creations in our challenge gallery.

I am entering this card in the current HLS Anything Goes with Dies Challenge.

Also entering it in the Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #157 - No Pattern Paper. Thanks Julie for the suggestion.
