International Blog Hop - Highlighting Stampin' Up! Products





Welcome to our International Blog Hop. We are a group of demonstrators from around the world that want to show you ideas and inspiration using the latest Stampin' Up!® products that are available to purchase right now. You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Juana Create or may have come from the person previous to me on the list. 

If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Juana Ambida. The wonderful Kylie Bertucci, has organised this International blog hop for us and it's such an honour to take part. 

You are currently visiting Australia - If you are from this area I would love to assist you with purchasing Stampin' Up!® products or if you need any help with the products.

I am excited to showcase the wondrous Star of Light set which can be found on page 9 in the new holiday catalogue. It comes in a bundle with coordinating Starlight thinlits, which makes it such a breeze to create highly detailed and finished cards. 

Here are the cards I have made using this set. This set alone is so versatile thanks to the fabulous detailed thinlits. I have used both the positive and negative image of the Starlight thinlits to create the focal star as well as create a window and shaker card using the same star. 

To make it really sparkle and luminous, I have used gold and silver foil as well as Dazzling diamonds glimmer paper for the die cut Stars. Gold and white heat embossing was also used to accentuate the stamped stars and sentiments. The blue white and gold together with the metallic accents just adds elegance to each card.




Here are the Star of Wonder designs I came up with... 


Starlight Window cut out 
Silver Frosted layered Star
Shaker card with gold mica flakes

This card has been entered and inspired by this week's Global Design Project #54 Sketch by Teneale Williams. The sketch challenge is such an inspiration and be sure to check out the highly creative design team's projects for more inspiration and hopefully you can join in the fun too using this Sketch! :)  



Details:
• Top folding A2, Night of Navy cardstock.
• Night of Navy ink blending for the large banner with white heat embossed sentiment.
• Layered banners created using Banner Framelits - mounted with Stampin' dimensionals. 
• Silver foil sheet and Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper used for stars.







I hope you enjoyed the Star of Light bundle and found inspiration. This is a truly wonderful set and makes the most dazzling looking Christmas cards that will make the recipient feel special and cherish forever - how could they not? :)  

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss. Remember that currently you are at my blog - Juana Ambida, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next in the list.
