    This is a very interesting die/card. I really enjoyed how you did this. That textture liquid is fascinating, too. I can’t wait to know what this announcement of yours is; are you pregnant?

  7. Robin in WA says:

    Love your card!!! I have to admit I’m intrigued by the circle die and was wondering how someone would use it. Thanks for your creative use!!! I’m excited to hear about your news!! Will be tuned in!! Now I have a question. As I watched you inking the small pieces I was wondering what the advantage of doing the individual pieces as opposed to doing the card stock then cutting.

    • Darlene DeVries says:

      Interesting question Robin! I didn’t think to do the cardstock first, but you could. You’d have to cut another circle for the sentiment though. I still think coloring the little pieces and getting heavy ink coverage is easier than doing the whole thing at once.

      • Robin in WA says:

        I would have to agree that getting the heavy ink coverage would be easier on the smaller pieces. Thank you for that insight!

  8. Gorgeous card and thanks for leaving us hanging Darlene!!! LOL J/K, can’t wait to hear the good news! Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas to you and your family 🙂

    I enjoyed watching you make this card. Your ideas never cease to amaze me. I will be looking for some of that surgical tape. Would solve some problems I have been having. I am also distraught at the loss of your mini star stamp. Were you wearing a shirt with a pocket in it? I have found stamps and even a contact lens in my shirt pockets. I have been making cards that include two very small dies in the shape of triangle Christmas trees. At least when I dropped one of those, there was a chance of finding it when the light hit it just right. I’ve often wondered why stamp companies can’t color their itty bitty clear stamps a bright neon pink, orange, or green. Come to think of it, they probably sell more stamp sets if they don’t, as they know we WILL replace a favorite stamp if it gets lost. Thanks for the video.

    • Darlene DeVries says:

      Linda, I love your idea of having our small stamps colored in bright colors. No, I didn’t have a pocket. It still hasn’t turned up, but my table is still a little messy. I’m hoping to totally clear it in the next few days. Maybe it will turn up. Merry Christmas to you!

  12. What a fabulous card! So sorry you lost the little star. I hope it shows up again.

  13. Awesome design! your cards are so unique! TFS

  14. Darlene, what a clever card. It looked like it was a lot of fun to make. Thanks for sharing this fun idea. Hope you find your star. I lost a leaf stamp once and was sick about it – but it did turn up later. Check the edges of your ink pads.

  15. i loved your story about the bitty star. I just did the same thing with an itty bitty dot from a Lawn Fawn set. I was on my hands & knees gently tapping the carpet & everywhere hoping it was clinging to something. Oh well, maybe it’ll turn up eventually. LOL. I love your card. Great space theme. It remined me of a baseball, too. Thank you for posting!

  16. Cynthia Patti says:

    Wow! That was lovely- Charlotte and I have fun watching your videos together:-)

    We hope you find your little star!

  17. Great card! I really like the layers with the stars in the background. Thanks for sharing Darlene!

    P.S. It is not very nice of you to tease us this way : )

  18. Celeste Goff says:

    What a great card!!!

  19. Fabulous, Darlene! Wow, the way you foresaw those tiny stars on the background is just marvelous. Lovely space card! Hope you find the mini star and looking forward to hearing your great news!!!!

  20. What a fantastic feeling of space on your card! I loved watching you create it!

  21. Laura Norris says:

    What a fun unique card Darlene! I kept wondering how you were going to glue down that circle piece…your plan was genius!!! Can’t wait to hear your exciting news! I’m sure it is BIG!! Merry Christmas to you and your wonderful family!

  22. Oh Darlene, I’m so sorry that little star is lost somewhere, I really hope you will soon find it stuck to something, I hope your doggie didn’t eat it, 🙁
    I just love this “spacy” looking die, it truly looks like some little planets on a Galaxy far, far away.
    Your sponging is fantastic and I simply adore the combination of purples and blues with those specks of water that look like stars. Very beautiful indeed.
    Hmm..I was also wondering what kind of news you have for us my dear, so you can be sure I will be waiting anxiously 😉

  23. A wow card, love how you used the distress inks, also like the little stars, this really m makes it look like baseball’s, cool look. Looking forward to your exciting news. Hope that little star shows up, I have searched my room, garbage, clothing etc. many times for those elusive bits, fortunately they turn up in the funniest places.

  24. Love the card! What a great idea.

  25. Anita Holmes says:

    What a neat card, love it! I too have lost a small heart and a small star…..makes you wonder how that can happen! Can not wait for your news, for a moment I thought you might announce you were expecting!!!!
    Thanks for sharing and I want to wish you and your family a fabulous Christmas and all the very best for 2015.

    • Darlene DeVries says:

      OMGoodness Anita, that train has left the station! For some reason, I’m starting to look nostalgically at babies again though. I think because with a teenager, you start missing the days where you can make them stop crying with just a hug and a song.

  26. AWESOME card.

  27. I was wondering how you were going to glue to intricate piece down! You amaze me every time! 🙂 Love this – love the extra touch with the tiny star that went AWOL. Don’t feel bad – I lost the ice cream cone from the SSS kit and it wasn’t even small! I cried over a stamp…a stamp! Lovely and fun card! Thanks for sharing! Excited to hear the week? 🙂

  28. That’s beautiful! I love the Distress Inks on the background and the little stars around the die cut. I hope you find that little star stamp!

  29. I love how you used that fabulous die, Darlene! Such an awesome card!

  30. Great card… Can’t wait to hear your news! Have a blessed Merry Christmas!
