Quick & Simple Star of Light

I absolutely love the Star of Light stamp set with the matching Starlight Thinlits dies. They work beautifully together to make quick and simple cards that highlight the intricacy of the dies. The dies cut perfectly with the Precision Base Plate. And is that “galaxy” stamp in the background not awesome? This is truly my favorite Christmas stamp set this season! I adore and miss retired 2014-2016 In Colors Blackberry Bliss and Lost Lagoon. So which one of these do you like the most? I’m leaning more towards Blackberry Bliss, Gold Glimmer and Very Vanilla.  Tell me what you think!

Flourishing Love

I have a business conference to attend about 4 hours away from home. I thought it would be nice to remind my daughter that I’ll miss her and I’m only a phone call or text away. I love the subtleness of using vellum for the butterflies and using the pearls for the body. To make it extra special, I used some DSP to make a matching envelope. I just love these colors together. So soft and pretty. The phrases in Flourishing Phrases are so diverse and they have such a lovely font.  I had decided to purchase this set in wood mount so I can easily use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure I stamp the words straight. I don’t seem to have the ability to stamp words straight just by eye-balling it. It is a wonderful tool that I turn to time and time again.  So, without further adieu, here’s the card I made for Miss Hunter:
