Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring the theme December Holidays.  I am excited to share another project with you today.  Fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe are participating, so we have lots of fun projects to share with you. I hope you get loads of creative inspiration from them. You may have started here, or arrived from the talented Tracy Held’s blog.  Wasn’t her project gorgeous? Either way, you’re in the right place!

I decided to use the Stars Are Shining Bundle. When thinking about how to use it, I recalled a technique I used a number of years ago with layered colours sponged on to the card, heat dried, then “flicked” with water. It’s very effective for starscapes.


  • Stamps: – Stars Are Shining
  • Inks: –  Night of Navy, Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss, Versamark
  • Card: – Basic White (thick & thin), Night of Navy, Vellum
  • Tools: –  Starlit punch, sponges, Heat Tool
  • Embellishments: – Basic Rhinestones, Silver Metallic Embossing powder
  • Other: – Stampin Dimensionals, Tombow adhesive,

I hope you are inspired by my card.  I’d love to know what you think! Thanks for joining us for our Blog Hop.
