2 Challenges in 1!

Hey there stampers! Happy Sunday! 

I was browsing through my google reader list and saw the new challenge with the Opus Gluei girls and Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge-I knew I had to combine the two especially after seeing Vicki's card HERE.  I had to CASE it!  The Opus Gluei challenge was to use stars in your project and Karen's sketch is simple and cute!


  1. Punch stars out of the Christmas Cocoa DSP using the Star and Small Star Punches and layer together, leaving one extra small star for the bottom.
  2. Using the 1/16" Circle Punch punch holes to insert star brads (local craft store).
  3. Adhere to panels of the Christmas Cocoa DSP onto a mat of Soft Suede card stock and then onto your Whisper White card base.
  4. Stamp the sentiment from the Stem Sayings stamp set in Versamark and sprinkle White Embossing Powder on it.  Heat set with Heat Tool.
  5. Add stars.  I used Dimensionals on the big star in the middle and on the small one on the bottom.


  • STAMPS: Stem Sayings
  • INK: Versamark
  • PAPER: Whisper White, Christmas Cocoa DSP, Soft Suede
  • ACCESSORIES: Star Brads, Dimensionals, White Embossing Powder
