Star of Light for Coffee and Card

Hi Everyone!

As it is now October, I decided for the first Coffee and Card of the month to bring out a favourite Christmas stamp set.

I love that, although we get lots of lovely new holiday stamp sets every year in our Autumn/Winter catalogue, Stampin' Up! still carry over stamp sets from previous years to the Annual catalogue. One such stamp set that was carried over is the Star of Light set. This has to be one of my favourite stamp sets for Christmas - mine is very well loved (and a little bit pink!) but still works perfectly.

This stamp set has some beautiful dies to co-ordinate with it, but for Coffee and Card, I avoid dies so designed these cards using only the stamp set. I added a bit of Christmas sparkle though by adding some of the amazing new Shimmer Paint - I absolutely adore these paints, just a tip though, less is more! I added just a touch onto a small paint brush to get the effect on the stars.

For the background on the top card, I inked up a block and placed it straight down onto the cardstock - I love the effect that this gives. 

Christmas crafting is now officially underway - I don't know about you, but I have a lot to make, it's going to be a busy couple of months. Don't forget, all items used can be purchased in my Online Shop.

Hope you like the cards and thanks for reading!
