Lucky Stars

Hey there!

So, during my crafty time last night, I played around with Lifestyle Craft's Nesting Star Dies. I came up with two easy, CAS projects.

For this, I die cut a large star from a Studio Calico 6x6 paper pad, then die cut a smaller star out of the center.  I popped up the star on my card base, and stamped my sentiment in the die cut center.  Last, I added a bit of red twine.

For the next card, instead of die cutting out the star, I impressed it into the white panel.  I know it's kinda hard to see. Taking three smaller sized stars, I simply added an embossing mat underneath the cardstock, removed one tab on my multipurpose platform and kept the same sandwhich.  I then went a little crazy with the rhinestones, love me some bling!

I have been trying out my new light tent recently and adjusting the settings on my camera, but I just can't seem to get the right mix of light and shadow.  Any tips you might be able to offer?  I think I might just lose my mind from bad photos, lol!  Thanks for any help!

    I feel your pain with getting the right light and shadows in your photos. Sorry, I can't help, I need help myself. ;)
