Melissa, LOVE both of these samples, such a unique and original use of the star cover plate!

Melissa, love your version of a masculine card, LOL! Both of these are stunners (and so are your inspiration photos).

Your inspiration photos are stunning as are your cards! You have such a great ability to think outside the box and use PTI in new ways!!

Holly Saveur

Stunning the way you used the new simply stars plate!


I really love the way you have used color combinations and special embellishments to make these such beautiful cards. Great job Melissa!!

Fabulous, I always know that I will see something very unique and beautiful on your postings :)


Your creations are always so stunning and so FULL of creativity. You've definitely taken the stars cover plate die to the next level and I'm in awe. I've been on the fence now for a couple of months on the Monthly Moments Slide Frame die/stamp set. You've convinced me with your feminine card that I MUST HAVE at least the die! :-) Lovely, lovely interpretation. Thanks for the inspiration!!

Both cards are beautiful! I LOVE your masculine version, with the strips of cardstock, cut with the coverplate and the added gold! Your inspiration photos are wonderful, too!

Emma S.

Oh My! Why is it every release, I WANT everything??


I love your take on the star cover plate - you really made it shine. Your soft colors, use of vellum, unique use of the stars and sequins made your cards standouts! Super interpretation of your inspiration photos and the stamp/dies.


I save your blog for last on PTI group days because I know that I'm going to be lingering over your cards, trying to take in every last detail. The Copic-colored vellum stars topped by a sequin are lovely and perfectly capture the inspiration photo. Thank you for showing the inside of your card, too. The second card is magical. Your subtle use of color and pattern is stunning. Have a wonderful weekend with your family.

Beautiful cards, Melis! I'm especially drawn to the second one--love the stars and swirl.


Love the cards. You showed how versatile these stamps and cover plate is. Amazing colors used in on the cards.


Two WONDERFUL card, Melissa! Unique, creative sketches and an equally FABULOUS mix of design elements. LOVE the colors, patterns, and all those "oh my stars!" Hee! TFS your talent and beautiful creations every day. :)
