Starry Christmas


Hi everyone.  Today I had a chance to play in the studio again - YAY!  My friend, Bonnie (Stamping with Klass) is hosting this week's Merry Monday Challenge #147 - Stars! and I wanted to play along.




I've had this fun multi-star stamp for ages and not inked it up yet :) ... I think it makes a pretty starry background for my glittery trees.  I tore two layers of white card stock for snowbanks, and heat embossed the sentiment (and the stars) in gold.

This card also works for both the February CAS Challenge and the February Sketch Challenge at Happy Little Stampers ...











Stamps:  Big Bang Confetti (Winnie & Walter), Christmas Greetings (SU!)
Paper:  White (Neenah); Green Glitter and Bronze Glitter card stock (unknown)
Ink:  Versamark
Accessories & Tools:  Gold embossing powder (Hero Arts), heat tool, Tree dies (Hero Arts)

Challenge:
Merry Monday #147 - Stars
HLS Feb. CAS Challenge - Embossing
HLS Feb. Sketch Challenge
