An Item for My Wish List

glittered star Christmas


If I could ask the Stampin’ Up! Santa for one item, it would be star-shaped framelits (ok — there would probably be more on my list than just that one item, but this would be right at the top).  I still have the old star punches, which my girls use a lot for school projects, and that is what I used here.  If you don’t have those anymore, you could just use one of the Simply Stars stamps and cut it out the old-fashioned way.  I covered my star with glue and poured on the Champagne Glass Stampin’ Glitter.

Enjoy your Saturday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Merry Little Christmas
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler
Paper:  Whisper White, Old Olive, Season of Style dsp
Embellishments:  Champagne Glass Stampin’ Glitter, Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine, Brights Designer Buttons, Pearl Basic Jewels, Star punch (retired)

Merry Little Christmas, Big Bow

I thought I’d play along with the color challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary.


I love these colors together!  I decided to make a Christmas card, and I’ve barely used any of the Cherry Cobbler 1″ Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon, so I knew I wanted to use it on this card.  But I guess that means I didn’t exactly follow the color challenge, so if I don’t qualify that’s ok.  The challenge colors were my inspiration, and I just got sidetracked a little.  But that’s one of the great things about challenges — they should serve as a tool to spark your creativity.
