Sparkly Stars - Winnie & Walter

Hi, Friends.......

I am back with one final, last-minute entry into the Winnie & Walter November Color Combo Challenge. Look at this wonderful inspiration palette that Heather gave us to work from:

I had this idea to die-cut some stars from super-sparkly glitter cardstock and put them on a blue background. I should have used something besides this DCWV glitter paper that is on a plastic backing of some sort. It is almost impossible to completely cut through when I use an intricate die. (Why don't I remember this from time to time...or at least write myself a note on the outside of the stack????? Nah...too easy!!! lol...)

So this arty look of leaving some of the pieces inside the star die cuts was not arty at was necessity! I like it better like this, anyway. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :) )

I am also entering this card in the new Winnie & Walter Rerun Challenge.  Shay is featuring the beautiful W&W Comfort + Joy stamp set (also on sale right now!! Yay!!).  I don't have this set (yet!) so I am taking inspiration from Heather's lovely card with the star trio in tones of muted gray and blue.  

Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - True Multifaceted Star Cutaways die set
DCWV - Glitter Cardstock
Winnie & Walter - Sketchy Thoughts stamp set
Distress Ink in Walnut Stain
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set

Hope you enjoyed my card. Next time, different glitter cardstock!!! :) Thank you for stopping by.

  8. Wow, I can't believe I didn't make one single card for the W&W Color or Rerun challenges, since I love that color combo AND I even have the Comfort and Joy stamp set. Just shows how busy I've been getting ready for the holiday and everything else that's happened in December. Your star design is gorgeous and oh so sparkly! That multi-faceted star die looks like something I may have to add to my collection..and the stars look fabulous against the deep royal blue background.

  9. This is just gorgeous! I love those stars, the pieces left in look so cool and give extra sparkle! Giggled at the Windows joke too! xxx
