One of the first stamp sets that caught my eye in the new Stampin' Up Holiday Catalog was the "Star of Light" stamp set.
I love the swirl of stars- its so pretty! Plus, it has the most beautiful Christmas verses and greetings- nine of them to be exact.
The coordinating "Starlight" thinlit dies are absolutely beautiful. Using the thinlits with the stamp set, makes it all the more stunning.
Here's one of the cards that we made at my #1 Stampers Meeting last week, using the "Star of Light" stamp set and "Starlight" thinlit dies:
I used rich razzleberry and pool party cardstocks as well as whisper white. I also used a tiny bit of the new Copper Foil sheets for the tiny star in the middle. It looks great with the copper embossing powder that I embossed the Merry Christmas greeting with.
Check out the new Copper thread behind the star. I love how well the copper plays off the other colors on this card.
You can see here that I used rich razzleberry ink to stamp on the same color cardstock as well as the spray of stars and single little stars on the pool party cardstock.
Here's a close up of how pretty the copper emboss powder really is. The white circle in the middle of the large star is one of our "White Perfect Accents." I used the medium sized circle.
Here's a birds-eye view, lol.
One last look...
I'm looking forward to making more lovely cards with this beautiful set.
