Bright & Beautiful Card Kit Gold

Hi Stamping Friends!!

First of all... Thank you to all of my customers who placed a qualifying order to receive a FREE Bright & Beautiful card kit from me. I appreciate you!! I finally mailed the kits yesterday. Phew!! Took a bit longer than I had expected. Plus the post office in December is C R A Z Y !!!! I also needed to take pictures for this blog post. Being the spoiled California girl that I am, I wasn't prepared to deal with the dark, rainy, cloudy weather (I like to use natural light). But I am so glad that we were able to enjoy a few days of rain. California needs it!

This post will feature two of the four cards from the kit. I will post the other two cards tomorrow. These two cards feature the Gold Glimmer paper.

Stamps: Bright & Beautiful
Paper: Whisper White, Gold Glimmer 
Ink: Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon 
Accessories: Stars Framelits, Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin Ribbon, Gold 1/8" Ribbon, Dimensionals

Kit includes:
One Whisper White card base
Two Whisper White card fronts
One large Gold Glimmer star
One small Gold Glimmer star

Stamp the sentiment with Lost Lagoon ink on to one of the Whisper White card fronts. Attach the Gold Glimmer star. Stamp two medium sized stars on to the second Whisper White sheet using Hello Honey ink and and cut them out using the Star Framelits. Gently bend one (only one!!) of the stars in half (you can use your Simply Scored Scoring Tool to ensure a straight crease) and layer it on top of the flat star (I used Fast Fuse), just attaching it on the crease so the second star kind of "folds-up". Attach the Hello Honey stars on to the Gold Glimmer star using Dimensionals. Attach the entire card front on to the Whisper White card base using Dimensionals. Layer the Lost Lagoon and Gold ribbons and tie them around the top of your card. Attach the small Gold Glimmer star using a Dimensional that you have cut to fit. Card one... DONE!!

On to card #2...

Stamps: Bright & Beautiful, Tag Talk (any sentiment will work)
Paper: Basic Gray, Lost Lagoon, Whisper White, Gold Glimmer, Moonlight DSP
Ink: Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon
Accessories: Stars Framelits, Lucky Stars Embossing Folder, Itty Bitty Star Punch, Label Bracket Punch, Hello Honey Stitched Satin Ribbon, White Taffeta Ribbon (retired), Gold Sequin Trim

Kit includes:
One Basic Gray card base
One embossed Lost Lagoon card front
One piece of Moonlight Designer Series Paper
One large Gold Glimmer star
One small Gold Glimmer star
(and hopefully one sheet of Whisper White card stock to stamp on even though it is not in the picture)

Attach the Lost Lagoon card front on to the Basic Gray card base. With Hello Honey ink, stamp one medium star and cut out with coordinating Star Framelit. Attach Hello Honey star on to Gold Glimmer star with Dimensionals. Attach ribbons to backside of Gold Glimmer star (I used Glue Dots). Using Dimensionals, add your embellished star to your card front. Don't forget to add your small Gold Glimmer star to the center with Dimensionals. Attach Moonlight DSP to bottom of card front. Stamp any sentiment and punch out with any shape punch you have (a small oval would look nice) or cut by hand if no punches are available.

What I love about this stamp set is even though it is considered a Christmas set, you can use it for other occasions as well. On the above card I used it for a birthday card. And here is the same card with a couple of changes...

Here I stamped the star using Basic Gray ink and created a graduation card. The star would also be great for a baby card. Sort of a "twinkle, twinkle little star" theme. The possibilities are endless! (well. not really. but close.)

I will be announcing my next card kit club in January so stay tuned!!!
