Shine Bright with Stars At Night
As soon as I saw the O Holy Night Suite of products in the September to December catalog from Stampin’ Up! I knew this would be one I was ordering first! The product suite comes with two bundles, embellishments, ribbon, and two gorgeous Designer Series Papers.
One of the two bundles is the beautiful Stars at Night bundle. This bundle consists of the Stars at Night stamp set and the Stars at Night Hybrd Embossing Folder – meaning it has both dies and a matching 3D embossing folder.
Last week I asked people on my Stampin’ With Crafty Klock Facebook page what stamp set I should use for my Thursday Night live demonstration on my Crafty Klock YouTube channel. The vote was close – just one vote made the diference and Stars at Night was the viewers choice.
Sometime Simple Stamping isn’t so Simple
When ever I do my live demonstrations I like to make two cards – one a simple stamping card with just stamps, ink, and paper, and one a little more stepped with with die cuts or embossing (either with embossing folders or with heat embossing). Usually it’s pretty easy for me to come up with a simple stamping card but this set really put my skills to the test.
The true beauty in the Stars at Night bundle lies with the dies and embossing folder – that’s what really gives this bundle the “wow” factor. So designing a card with just the stamp and sentiments in the set was hard. I mean really, really hard. I finally came up with a design that I think works – take a look and let me know what you think. Did I manage to pull off the simple stamping card?
