Christmas Star in Cherry Cobbler

I had so much fun making the Christmas Star card here that I couldn't wait to try another one.



This time I stamped with VersaMark on Chocolate Chip cardstock and used Cherry Cobbler embossing powder for the color.

The sentiment is a NBUS.  I'd used all the other sentiments from this set but not this one.  It seemed perfect for this big star.

After cutting the star out, I wrapped some gold cord around it to jazz it up a bit.

And did you notice I used up a snippet of Designer Paper?  I don't remember what the name is but it was a Stampin' Up! series.

Pixie's Snippet Playground likes to see our snippets so I'm going to skip over there to see what's happening this week.  Di always has such fun prizes to share.

Just us Girls has a color challenge from my friend Marisa.



I think that's kraft in the paper. Hopefully it's close enough.

Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge is GOT INK?  This week’s challenge is a simple one – use ink! Whether it is ink spray or an ink pad, an ink refill or maybe some India Ink pens – we want to see how you use ink this week on your crafting project. There's VersaMark ink under the embossing powder and on the sentiment.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
