Thank my lucky stars

Hey everyone!  I thought would share what I have been up to lately.  I love Close to my Heart stamps, but I will admit...I am a craft-a-holic!  I am a stamp junkie for sure.  I love almost all brands of stamps, and crafty items.  Papertrey Ink, Stampin' Up, Paper Smooches, Avery Elle, Lawn Fawn...I love it ALL!  Sometimes I think I spend more time shopping and hoarding then creating, lol!  So, here is my latest addiction~Mama Elephant stamps and dies.  As much as I love my Cricut machines, and my Explore...sometimes it is nice to just leave all of my "power tools" off.  Especially in the winter, when I spend most of my crafting time upstairs in our living room by the fire.  ;)

I used the Mama Elephant dies to make a quick and easy shaker card.  I used the Sew Fancy dies for the base of the card.  I used the Stitched Sky dies to cut vellum for the clouds and some metallic paper for the moon and stars.  

I used Copic markers to color the cute new stamp from the January release, Shooting Star. Shaker cards are so easy to make with dies, and I just LOVE those new stitched dies!
