Starry Christmas Night — FMS366

It’s time for another new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our favorite French stamper, Cecile Ribon, is our hostess.  Not only do we have a fabulous new sketch, but we are also having a Design Team Call.  This FMS design team is truly the best group of ladies, and I love working with them.  If you would like to be a part of the team, this is your opportunity.  Head to the Freshly Made Sketches page to see what the qualifications and entry rules are.  Here is a look at our fun sketch for this week:

Since any shape can be used for the tree in this sketch, I pulled out an old favorite Christmas set that I haven’t used yet this year, Star of Light.  The dies that coordinate with this set are so beautiful.

While trying to decide on a starry background for the big focal star, I remembered the baby-themed dsp set, Twinkle Twinkle.  I thought the dark blue paper would be perfect to reflect a starry Christmas night.

The star was cut from a Silver Foil sheet, and the top detailed star was cut from some Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  The sentiment was embossed with silver embossing powder.  I love how this card has a lot of sparkle and beautiful detail with very little work.

 

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch.  We love to see what you create!  And don’t forget to apply for the Design Team Call if you’re interested!  Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration!

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Star of Light — Monday Montage #79

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of ten stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.

I added another quick and easy Christmas card to my stash this weekend.  I think I may have to make a few more of this one if (who am I kidding — when) I run out of time in December.  I used the Star of Light stamp set and coordinating thinlits to make it.

I stamped the starry swirl with Dapper Denim ink on some Whisper White card stock.  I love this image!  The detail is so beautiful.

The star was cut with some Silver Foil card stock and Silver Glimmer Paper.  Super quick! Some silver sequins and metallic thread finished it off.

I was inspired by the sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch!:
