Stampin’ Up! Bright & Beautiful in Black and Gold for Stamping and Blogging

I used the Bright & Beautiful and Good Greetings stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share with you today.  There is a new Stamping and Blogging sketch today so be sure to stop by the other Design Team Member’s blogs to see their projects.

Bright & Beautiful - Stamp With Amy K

My card design was inspired by the Stamping and Blogging SB76 sketch.

I started by punching along one side of a panel of Basic Black card stock with the Confetti Stars Punch.  I adhered the punched panel to a panel of Brushed Gold card stock with SNAIL, then to a Basic Black card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Bright & Beautiful 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the two star images from the Bright & Beautiful stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a Brushed Gold panel, sprinkled them with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed them.  I cut the to stamped stars and one additional Brushed Gold card stock star out with the Stars Framelits Dies.

Bright & Beautiful 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered the two larger stars with SNAIL to the card front, then adhered the smaller star with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I stamped the sentiment from the host exclusive Good Greetings stamp set (click here to read about how you can get this set for free through Oct 31) in VersaMark Ink on a strip of Brushed Gold card stock and I heat embossed it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

I punched the end of the sentiment strip with the Banner Punch, then adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Basic Black Candy Dot from the Neutrals Candy Dots pack to finish the card front.

I stamped the sentiment and star image from the Bright & Beautiful stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a Whisper White panel inside the card.

  1. This is a stunning card! It is simple, yet elegant and absolutely gorgeous!! As usual awesome job. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Amy, I love this card! I think it’s so fun to make Christmas cards with non-traditional colors. I have to say I’m going to miss you at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday. I always enjoyed seeing each of the cards you created there with the rest of us. Guess I’ll have to start following you so I can still see your lovely creations. 🙂

    • Thanks so much Sara! I will definitely miss you all at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday too, what an awesome group of stampers! I hope to be back after the new year when life settles down a little. 🙂

  3. What an beautifully elegant card Amy! One that makes you say “wow” when you would pull it out of the envelope. I love the way you used the stars punch at the bottom and the peek of the gold glimmer paper from underneath 😉
