Happy Friday and thanks for visiting! This week for Fabulous Friday over on the Sisters in Stamping blog we designed projects that feature a new stamp set from the Annual Catalog. I am getting a little tired of this heat and in honor of Christmas being just SIX months away as of yesterday, decided to create my first Christmas card. I *love* that Stampin' Up! gave us some holiday sets in the new catalog this year to give us some extra time to get started on them, aren't you?! I purchased the Every Blessing stamp set because I really like the silhouette stamps because I love sponging backgrounds. Speaking of backgrounds, isn't the new Boho Chic textured impressions folder for the Big Shot great on this card? I sponged that, too, to really bring out the texture.
Here is a close-up of the star image - I sponged it first using daffodil delight ink and then to create the halo effect sponged lightly with pool party all around, finishing with island indigo ink. A medium-sized rhinestone jewel in the center of the star really sets t off, don't you think?
And just one more view of the card. For even more card ideas and inspiration with our Stampin' Up! products, please be sure to hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog later this afternoon.
