Dragonfly Dreams Meets Star of Light

Hi Everyone,

If your anything like me then you are always looking for new ways to use stamp sets, I think this is particularly true for the Christmas themed sets which don’t get all year round use. Star of Light is a great example of a Christmas themed stamp set which can easily be used anytime of year and stars are a fairly versatile image.

For today’s card I took the large swirl stamp which is my favourite from this set and combined it with stamps from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.

Here is the card I came up with:

I chose to use Smoky Slate for the swirls and the little stars, which also come from the Star of Light set as I wanted to keep the background fairly pale.

I stamped the dragonfly wings with Wisteria Wonder and then stamped the whole dragonfly outline in Perfect Plum.

I added a greeting in the bottom left corner in Perfect Plum again and the card is done, quick simple and lovely.

Hope you like this card, do you have any more ideas for the Star of Light set?

Pool Party Christmas Tree

Today I wanted to create a Christmas card that used a non-traditional colour scheme and had a more modern feel. I chose a colour scheme of Pool Party, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla and paired them up with the Twinkle Trees Stamp Set.

I love how this turned out and can see myself making a Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum version. The greeting which I think works really well on this card comes from the Star of Light stamp set.  I added a little ribbon to the edge but think the design could work just as well without.

Candy Cane Lane Village Card

Today’s card was made using the Candy Cane Designer paper as a focus and was super quick to make. I took the paper with the little gingerbread houses and cut three out to form the main focus point.

The background was created using the Softly Falling Textured embossing folder and some Whisper White cardstock. I then finished the card off with some of the gorgeous stitched grosgrain ribbon in real red and a greeting from the Star of Light stamp set which has been cut out using the Bunch of Banners Framelits.
