Happy Thursday, friends! Welcome to another OSAT Blog Hop! Can you believe that we're in September already? The kids have been back to school for a couple of weeks and everyone is settling into more of a routine now that summer in unofficially over; something that I welcome with open arms (the routine that is)!
Do you know what else I love about September? It's new Holiday Catalogue time, which is what today's hop is all about! This catalogue is one of the best yet and I know you will just love it! Today's projects in particular, I used the new So Many Stars Bundle. It's a gorgeous set full of whimsical stars and beautiful sayings paired with a large assortment of 23 Stitched Stars Dies.
There are endless possibilities with this set, but I did decide to keep it a bit more simple this month. I used Night of Navy Cardstock and Ink, did a little heat embossing, and added a tough of bling to finish off the card.
To create the star background on the Whisper White Cardstock, I cut out the rectangle layer with the Stitched Rectangle Die for some extra coordination and then used the stamped-off technique to create a softer look with the Night of Navy Ink.
The large Night if Navy Star is adhered to the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals with a large Basic Rhinestone Jewel in the centre.
For the ornament, I purchased a distressed wood star ornament from a local craft store and then jazzed it up every so slightly. I wanted to keep the distressed look so I adhered a large Night of Navy star on top and used a Stampin' Sponge and the White Craft Stampin' Pad to create a distressed look on the star cutout.
Once I added the detailed star cut out, I used the new Shimmery Crystal Effects to fill in the small inner areas of the star to add in a bit of shimmer. Just look at that shine! This Crystal Effects is great for outling images and adding in sublte detail to any and all stamps. It's a think glue with white and silver flecks. SO pretty!
I really envision this card and gift set as a tree gift on Christmas Eve. Though it is still only September, you can never plan too early, especially when you make handmade cards and gifts!
