Welcome to the So Many Stars edition blog hop presented by the Stamp Review Crew! I do hope everyone had a lovely weekend... here in the US we enjoyed a long Thanksgiving holiday weekend. So much to be grateful for!
So Many Stars is a beautiful and delicate Christmas stamp set... especially when combined with the coordinating die set.
I thought it would be fun to experiment with a non-holiday card style to stretch the use of this gorgeous set beyond the traditional season. In fact I jumped ahead to spring by using the Country Club Designer Series paper. This fun paper will be available in January in the upcoming Mini Catalog.
I used Stampin' Blends to color in one of the line drawings from the DSP. Coloring with the Blends is one of my very favorite techniques and I was happy to see how well they worked on the Designer Series paper. One tip: Use a very light touch and go fairly quickly so the juicy markers do not soak into the paper too much.
For the inside I used the "Hoping all your CHRISTMAS WISHES come true" sentiment. By using Stampin' Write Markers I was able to easily omit a word making it into a birthday greeting.
Thanks so very much for stopping by! Please click on the links below to continue on to see the super creative work of the SR Crew!
