Christmastime is Here Star Card Tutorial

Hi Friends! I'll be away for our Demonstrator Council seminars until Nov 10th, so I've gone ahead and schedule blog posts each day for you. With yesterday's release of our gorgeous new "Christmastime is Here" Suite, I thought it would be fun to share a card tutorial every day until I get back, featuring the products in this suite! 

These tutorials are created by Stampin' Up! demonstrators in our 'Leader's Project Sheet Group' and I'll start things off today with my card! I'm really pleased with how it turned out, especially as I decided NOT to focus on the gorgeous rose patterns in the "Christmastime is Here" Designer Series Paper - I wanted to try something a bit different. So I pulled out my star dies and hoped for the best! I even amaze myself sometimes *wink*. As always, I had tons of fun creating and making this card:

  • Crumb Cake: 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”, scored at 4-1/4”
  • DSP: 4” x 5 ¼” and three pieces 3 ½” x 3 ½” (circle and star die cuts)
  1. Score Crumb Cake card stock in half to create card base.
  2. Sponge White Craft ink along edges of card base, and 4” x 5 ¼” designer series paper (DSP). Glue the DSP to front of card.
  3. Use large circle die to cut one circle from DSP. Rub embossing buddy over top then place circle die cut onto stamparatus. Stamp sentiment with Early Espresso Ink. Immediately sprinkle clear embossing powder over sentiment, shaking off excess, and set with heat tool. Sponge edge of circle with Craft White ink, then glue to front of card.
  4. Cut two pieces of Designer Series Paper with star die. Sponge edges with white ink and glue to card, overlapping, as shown. Add a small foil element start to centre of each die cut, placing a rhinestone in centre of each one.
  5. Add leaves from Foil Elements onto card, adhering with glue, to bottom of circle die cut.
  6. Create a bow from Linen Thread and place on top of leaves with a glue dot.

Enjoy the day & HAPPY STAMPING!
