Christmas is Coming!!!

I don't get too into making my Christmas cards until about November - usually well into November. :) But I have managed to make a few here and there. I love this Layered Star stamp from My Paper Moon. It's so versatile. It can be used to form many different designs and layers and is great for so many occasions. It even makes a pretty 4th of July card if you use appropriate paper. You can view it at here at the My Paper Moon site and see four samples of other ways to use the stamp. Scroll down to the last stamp. Here's a close up view to show you the detail in the star. I only used three layers on this star, but sometimes use 5 or more. I used the micca card stocks to help showcase my super sparkly silver embossing powder on the star. I also used my Scor Pal to add a few details. I finished the center of the star off with a small gemstone.

Supplies:
Stamps: Layered Star, Peace - both from My Paper Moon
Accessories: Silver Tinsel Embossing Powder, Stamp Cabana Silver Detail Embossing Powder, Scor Pal, Gem Sone

Blessings
  • A nice phone visit with my dad for his birthday today. :)
  • Happy Mail!
  • My daughter's tender heart. She does such sweet things for us.
Have a terrific day!!!
Inky hugs!
