Many Merry Stars, PP223

Hi, Friends! The sweet and wonderful LeAnne is hostess this week at The Paper Players, and she has a great sketch for us to play along with. I knew right away that I had to ink up a new stamp set, Many Merry Stars.

The set was a must have for me for two reasons: It's photopolymer so lining things up perfectly is a breeze. Also, it coordinates with the Star Framelit Dies. Win-win! As an added bonus, some of the images are suitable for occassions other than Christmas.

I really love the color combo of Real Red and Soft Sky combined with a little bit of silver. The smaller star was heat embossed in silver and has some pretty shine.

I have to admit that this set didn't float my boat when I first saw it, but when I saw your card, I squealed with delight! It looks so much better IRL, especially embossed in silver! Wheeeee! And Soft Sky and Real of my favorite color combos too! I love the whole creation...every little single thing about it! Thanks for making my sketch look awesom!

LOVE today's card Sandy - everything about it is so perfect! The balance of colours, stamping, sentiment, embellishments ... the thin border on the star and around the DSP really makes the clean lines pop. Gorgeous!!
