Star of Light Snowflake Christmas Card

Hey Peaches! I wanted to show you an example of how to get creative with your dies and stamp sets. One of the things that I love about Stampin' Up! is that their product is so versatile! I love how creative you can get by thinking outside the obvious intended purpose of each product. I mean the only limit is your imagination, and that's what makes crafting so fun to begin with, right? The possibilities are endless.

This stamp set and coordinating dies are named Star of Light and the entirely stunning images/dies are beautifully designed to look like the star that led the wise men to baby Jesus that night. I can see so many gorgeous projects being made with this set. You could make ornaments with some sparkling gold glimmer paper, a breathtaking night sky scene, or even some elegant gift tags. When I say this set, I first thought about using the dies to create a fun star border along one edge of my card, but after cutting the pieces out, I looked a little closer at the stars. I thought that they would make such pretty snowflakes. So I first took a piece of watercolor paper and my Tempting Turquoise ink pad. I squeezed the stamp pad base and lid together to get some ink in the well of the lid so that I could watercolor with my aqua painter. After I created my watercolor background, I added my sentiment in Basic Black. After I decided on where I wanted to place my "snowflakes", I adhered them to my watercolor layer and trimmed off any pieces that hung over and adhered that layer to my base layer. Lastly, I added some bling. I added some Wink of Stella (just to the snowflakes), some jewel basic rhinestones, and clear sequins to finish it off. Thanks for stopping by and as always, all supplies used for this card are listed below. The stamp bundle will be available staring September 1st. You can just click on the links below and they will take you directly to the product! Thanks and see you next post!
