Bright & Beautiful Stars…

Inspired by a sample in the Holiday Catalog, this card came together easily.  But now I have several ideas to build cards from this one.




This card doesn’t have the red rhinestones on the front like the sample only because I didn’t remember to place them until after the photo had been taken.  This card is striking in person with the gold foil and pewter embossing.  Here are the Stuff ‘N Digits for you if you feel inspired to give this card a try…


Paper:  Very Vanilla cardstock, Typeset DSP, Gold Foil 12 x 12

Ink:  Memento Black, VersaMark and Cherry Cobbler

Stamps:  Bright & Beautiful

Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Stars Framelits, Pewter Embossing Powder, Gold Embossing Powder, Cherry Cobbler 1″ Sheer Ribbon and Rhinestones.


The Very Vanilla base card is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″

The first DSP layer is 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″

the second DSP layer is 4″ x 5 1/4″. Use Gorgeous Grunge splatter stamp and Memento Black ink on this layer

The gold Foil was stamped with VersaMark ink and covered with Pewter Embossing Powder and heat.  The Very Vanilla star is stamped with VersaMark and covered with Gold Embossing Powder and heated.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  Hope you have found it inspiring and you can’t wait to get started on a creation of your own.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…”Life is too short to worry what others think about you.  So have fun and live it up…give them something to talk about!”

I’ll be inky this time tomorrow and I’ll be so HappY!
