Sparkly Christmas Star Card & Thank You Thursday Deals

I’ll start off with a big THANK YOU to all of you who dropped by my post from Sunday to leave a comment about your favorite Halloween candy.  Looks like there are lots of chocolate and candy corn lovers out there!

Random number generator picked comment number 7 as the blog candy winner.  Comment number 7 is from: Nancy H!!

Amy, I have to agree with you – Hershey’s chocolate with almonds, but to be more specific, I love the dark chocolate nuggets with almonds. And, they are best if they are kept in the freezer and eaten while still frozen! The real trick is not to buy them until right before Halloween; otherwise, it means a quick trip to the store to restock right before the trick or treaters start arriving!

Congratulations Nancy!  I’ll be dropping you an email shortly for your mailing address.  Thanks again for leaving me your comments, I appreciate it!!

Alright, on to my card share today.  I used the Christmas Star single stamp (one of the 25 stamp sets on sale right now for 25% off), the Simply Stars stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) and the More Merry Messages stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) from Stampin’ Up! to create a glittery holiday card.

Christmas Star

My card design was inspired by the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 285.

I stamped the Christmas Star image in Island Indigo ink on an Island Indigo Textured card stock panel, then stamped the sentiment from the More Merry Messages stamp set in VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I added a layer of Silver Glimmer Paper under the stamped panel with Sticky Strip to hold it in place.

Christmas Star 1

I embossed a panel of Pool Party card stock with the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and I adhered it to a panel of Silver Glimmer Paper with Sticky Strip to hold it in place.  I stamped the star image from the Simply Stars stamp set three times and heat embossed those images with Pool Party, Silver and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I hand cut the large stars with my paper snips and popped them up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Simply Stars

I also used the little star punch from the Merry Minis Punch Pack.  This is one of the items (along with the More Merry Messages stamp set that I also used on this card) that Stampin’ Up! carried over from last year that is still available.  You can see the full carry over list in PDF by clicking here.  And I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels for just a little more sparkle.  🙂

More Merry Messages

The inside of the card is simply a panel of Pool Party card stock stamped with a sentiment from the More Merry Messages stamp set in Island Indigo ink.  I added three more little star punches from Silver Glimmer Paper for the finishing touch.
