I also want to let you know how thankful I am to all of you for your continued support and lovely comments that you leave on my blog. Y’all make it so much fun!

Todays card features the Bright and Beautiful Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up!


I went a little non traditional for colors here…but love it anyway. The Blackberry Bliss is to die for Gorgeous! So rich and beautiful!

I strayed a bit from the sketch and added the element to the top instead of the bottom but it’s pretty close to this sketch.



  • Confetti White cut to 4 1/4 x 11 and 3 3/4 x 5
  • Blackberry Bliss is cut to 4 x 5 1/4 and then another 1/2 piece of cardstock for the stars
  • Punch the left side of the white mat with the Confetti Stars Punch then Emboss the White Mat with the stars Embossing Folder
  • Heat Emboss the larger star in Gold and the smaller in White Embossing Powder. The smallest star in Gold
  • Punch a little star with the Star Punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and add to the tower of STARS.
  • Time to assemble
  • Tie a know bow to the white mat where the punched stars end and the embossed start and add to the card on the left side
