Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #30


Hi Stampers!!  We have lots of sparkle to share with you this week at the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge.  We hope you can play along with us.  This would be such a fun Christmas theme, but I also think it would be gorgeous as a New Year's party.  Everytime I see these beautiful challenge pictures, I'm inspired to entertain more often.  But with the crazy schedule of a busy household, I may have to wait a few more years. 


COME TO BETHLEHEM

I loved this stamp set as soon as I saw it when the new catalog came out back in July.  But I was good and didn't actually purchase it until November.  :)  This is the first card I made using it and I love how it turned out!!  The card base is Perfect Plum layered with Brushed Silver to give it some sparkle.  The Elegant Eggplant pieces are embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper IF.  My Elegant Eggplant stamp pad needs to be reinked, so I pulled out my Craft Spots and inked up my stamp with those.  It worked out perfectly, since then I could ink up my star in a different color.  Of course any star would not be complete with out a little shine from our Basic Rhinestones.  LOVE those things!!  And the finishing touch is some soft White Satin ribbon.

I found this perfect layout at Diva Coffee Break Designs.  A great SUO challenge blog that I visit when I can.  This is DCBD205.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

This is beautiful, Krystal! I got this in clear mount and cut the star out separately so now I can position it where ever I want! I would never have thought to ink it in Eggplant..just stunning!

Such an elegant card!

Linda Bandow said...

Elegant really says it and the use of negative space and a monochromatic color scheme really makes it! TFS!
