Star light, shining bright, All Is Calm into the night.

Stampin' Up! have been providing us with lots of great promotions lately including the Big Shot and Dies promotional bundles giving us plenty of reasons to fall in love with the products. The Star Framelits I bought during the promotion are already featuring in several of my projects and, having had a sneek peek of some additional products coming, I know they are a firm favourite for some time to come.  

Well we have already seen the All Is Calm designer papers on the previous posts, but here it is again in the centre of my Star Framelit.  I have used some scrap strips to create my designer background under my Star cut-out layer.  The Star is cut out first with the framelits and then I have embossed using the Decorative Dots folder.

Tip: Remember, cut first and then emboss to make sure your embossing does not get squished passing through the Big Shot the second time.

There is a lovely Smoky Slate background card with a mat Whisper White layer.  Then on top of the Whisper White I have layered the strips in place where they will shine through the star.  The top embossed layer in Soft Sky has been lifted with foam dimensionals to give some more definition to the last layer and to allow the All Is Calm Embellishment to hang down on some Whisper White Baker's Twine.

I have added a rhinestone (when don't I add some sparkle!) to shine and catch the light as the snowflake moves and catches the light.

See the 'merry christmas', it is from the Good Greetings set FREE until 31st October with sales of £200 or more.

The sentiment is stamped on Lost Lagoon, one of the key colours of the Designer Paper.  All the papers come with a list of the co-ordinating colours so it is so easy to match your products.  The ribbon is also Lost Lagoon and from the Autumn/Winter catalogue.

I made my banner ends for the sentiment by just cutting the strip and then feeding one end into the Banner Punch.  This punch is a permanent companion on my crafting desk at the moment! Weekly Deals this week sees the Banner Punch I have used on offer.  It is only £8.63 until Wednesday of next week when the deals change.  Now that is a great deal!

Back again soon
