Hi Stampers!  I hope you had a great weekend.  I had a Stampin’ Up! party on Saturday at a good friends house and Sunday I did a craft fair in Santa Rosa.  Here is a picture of my table at the craft fair:
craft-fair-tableThis is one of my favorite cards for this year.  It’s a spinning star suspended on clear quilting thread.
spin-star-1This card starts with a Lost Lagoon card base (8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″).  I then added a layer of All Is Calm designer series paper – 5.25″ x 4″.  Before adhering the DSP to the card base I carefully centered it in the card base front and ran it through the big shot with a circle framelit.  Iused the circle that was slightly bigger than the star I wanted to use.  I then used that circle framelit and the next size up and placed them both on silver foil paper and ran that through the big shot – giving me the silver frame.

Stampin’ Tip: I stamped two of the medium starts from the Bright and Beautiful stamp set onto Whisper White card stock and then cut them out with the star framelits.  I adhered these two stars together back to back with a string of clear quilting thread between the two of them leaving some excess at top and bottom.  I then placed this in the center of the circle and between the card base and DSP as I adhered the DSP to card base with snail adhesive.  I then added the silver frame to the front of the card.  This gave me the spinning star.

For the greeting I used the Season’s Greetings from the Stampin’ Up! Bright and Beautiful stamp set. I stamped it with versamark ink onto Whisper White card stock and then used silver embossing powder and heated it with my heat gun. This was then cut out with a framelit from the Project Life framelit set.  That was then attached with stampin’ dimensionals.  The interior of the card is a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White card stock with the smallest star stamped in Lost Lagoon Ink  (centered behind the star from the front of the card) and the other greeting front he same set stamped in Basic Grey (towards the bottom – so it’s hidden by the card front when closed).  I’m just thrilled with how it came out.  It’s even prettier in person!
