Stamping Play Date Star of Light Card

Every year Stampin’ Up!® bring out so many gorgeous sets of stamps and it’s impossible to buy and use them all! This bundle is now on my wish list as I had the chance to create this Star of Light Card using it.

I was invited to a demonstrator play date last month with the opportunity to ‘play’ with 4 sets from the holiday catalogue. Wow!! It was so much fun!

We each received a bag containing card stock, designer series paper, ribbon, vellum, gold foil or glimmer paper. There were 4 tables set up with different supplies and we could just have a play and make whatever we liked.

Talk about kids in a lolly shop!! While we created we chatted and had a yummy morning tea as everyone had bought a small plate. We spent a wonderful 2 hours chilling out with craft supplies and friends, I hope they do it again soon.

Star of Light Card

My card was made using the Star of Light stamp set and Starlight Thinlits Dies. It was loosely based on the sample shown on page 9 of the Holiday Catalogue.

Measurements

• Card base is Pool Party card stock, half an A4 piece,scored and folded in the centre. Vellum measures 8cm x 14.8cm.

Start Stamping

• Use Pool Party Ink to stamp the star dust looking stamp around the edges of the card base where it would be visible once the vellum was adhered.
• Stamp the small stars randomly on the vellum and using a piece of Whisper White I stamped the big star and the Christmas greeting in Island Indigo Ink.

Vellum details

• The star on the right was cut from the vellum using the co-ordinating Starlight thinlet and the Big Shot.
• I placed the vellum over the card base where it would eventually be stuck and lined up the medium star stamp where the hole was from cutting out the star. I pulled the vellum away and stamped the star in Island Indigo Ink.
• Now stick the vellum to the card base. I used a glue dot in each corner and one underneath where the large star will go so it is hidden.
• Put the star back with a small piece of dimensional underneath and used a Basic Rhinestone to hide the dimensional. I love how the darker star shows through the vellum.
• Use dimensionals to stick the large star on the left and the sentiment. Pop some more rhinestones around and it’s finished.

I love how the vellum paired with the Soft Sky makes a soft dreamy look, also that it’s not traditional Christmas colours. You can make 12 Christmas Cards in my Stamp-A-Stack on Saturday 19th November click here for more details and to register.
