Shatter the Stars

Last night the Guardian of Glitter and I stumbled onto an amazing discovery. We were burning the midnight oil, as it were, up in the crafting chambers, concocting a new glitter formula that would double as a healing tonic when our experiments went awry. One of the lightbulbs on the workbench started glowing an unnatural colour, casting a blinding light before suddenly plunging us into darkness.

I started this card out by stamping the lightbulb using the Unity “Lightbulb Moment” set - once on white paper and once on patterned yellow paper, cutting out the top and gluing them together. I used the same yellow patterned paper to cut out the circle. I then used the Lawn Fawn “Summertime Charm” set and stamped the star a bunch of times on some random scraps of patterned paper I had. Wishing I had the coordinating die, I painstakingly cut out each star, gluing them to the white rectangle. I then added the glowy image from the Summertime Charm set around each star, earning me +392 light magic exp points. The sentiment was also stamped from that same set.


I left the inside sentiment free, so I could use this card for practically anything. I decorated it using the solid star image from the Summertime Charm set.

I used the same little star stamp on the envelope, making everything match.


This paper pieced creation will light it up in the following challenges:


Looking out the window, we noticed there was no light coming from the moon or stars, which had previously been glowing through the night’s darkness. When we illuminated the lightbulb once more, the stars and moon lit up as well! We had inadvertently created a device to control the lights in the night sky! We started talking excitedly thinking of all we could do with our newfound discovery when Nikki dropped the bulb. We watched in dismay as the magical device shattered on the floor. Well that was short lived.
