This past weekend was the last weekend before school started (today). It was busy with us trying to cram in all the things that we had been wanting to do all summer, but hadn't quite found the "right time" yet. I vow every year that this will not happen - but it always does (and probably always will - ha!)
Despite the busy schedule, I did find a bit of time to spend stamping! (I won't tell you how late I stayed up last night to "find the time", but ..... let's just say it was a bit difficult to get up this morning!)
I have been playing with the new Starlight Thinlits and Star of Light Stamp set coming in the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog staring September 1. This bundle gives endless opportunities to try different colors and paper textures for the various layers that are possible. That being said, right now I seem to be drawn toward blue, silver and shimmer!
Here is a card I made using Bermuda Bay as my focal color. I have included two photos, because depending on how the light hits the silver foil, the card looks completely different!
I used Silver Foil Paper for the base of the star. The larger lacy layer is done using Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, and the top layer is Bermuda Bay. The saying and the accent stamps behind the image are all from the Star of Light Stamp Set. I used the Bunch of Banners framelits for the banner behind the saying. The words were punched out using the Classic Label Punch.
Later this week, I hope to post one more card that uses this set along with a technique and video tutorial. Be sure to check back!
