Welcome to the
where we will celebrate all things Star Wars related.
Whether it's a card, scrapbook page, party plan or quilt, it's related to
the Star Wars franchise in some way and we want to share it with you.
So in a galaxy far, far away there's a crafter working tirelessly to
create some movie magic for you...now on with the projects at hyper speed.
Before I get to today's projects, I'd like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to my amazing
hubby, Ron, who does all my graphics for me AND designed today's cards.
I had a concept in mind, but he made it happen.
I did the color work, but all the graphics are him.
THANKS HONEY FOR ALL YOU DO! LOVE YOU!!!
I needed a couple of cards for a few people going through trials with cancer
and thought today's hop was the perfect way to merge something horrible and yucky
with something funny and just possibly give them a smirk in the midst of the darkness.
The card above I kept the ribbon white using a Molotow masking pen and using my
Ranger Distress Inks added a rainbow. I know, I know, not very Star Wars-esque BUT
a white ribbon in the symbol for lung cancer which a fellow crafter's mom was just diagnosed with, so I wanted a bright cheerful card to send to her but needed the ribbon to stand out.
For these two, I used more Ranger Distress Inks and Heidi Swapp Color Mists,
Perfect Pearls Mists and plain old water to achieve the starry galaxy look.
I used a pink alcohol maker to color in the ribbon.
In the printed version of this card there are ribbons on the ends of the banner but
when I was masking them off didn't do a very good job and they got smeared so I found
some giant faceted bling in my stash and covered them up. Now the card can be used for anything.
With the Storm Troopers, it's a more masculine card,
I think I'll send it to my BFF's Dad who's been battling cancer for a number of years now.
