Stamp Review Crew: So Many Stars

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.

The front "Happy Birthday" is inked with the coordinating colored Stampin' Write Markers and adhered to a Clear Window Sheet.  This lets the fun paper peek through!

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!
