Holiday Wishes - Clean and Simple

Here is another card with my new stamp set Holiday Wishes!  For this card, I used the sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping.  



I cut one star out with Art Philosophy cricut cartridge (a perfect fit) and then moved the measurement up 1/4" and cut another one to layer so that one star would stand out.  Notice my 'Baker's Twine'?  I got the tip to make my own from Close To My Heart's Facebook page.  I twisted together White and Crystal Blue Waxy flax to make my Baker's Twine.  
Today I recieved a 'goodie box' from my upline Chris Szczechowski.   It was all about embossing!  I got embossing powders in Silver and Clear Detail, a Versamark ink pad and refill, an embossing pen and prisma glitter!  Chris also gave me this tip:  Mix Clear Detail embossing powder with prisma glitter for a cool effect.   I tried it out on the stars!  You can see the prisma glitter shimmering.    I first stamped the star with Crystal Blue ink and then stamped again with the Versamark ink.  I was able to line it up perfectly with our clear stamp and block!  Next, I added the Embossing powder/Prisma Glitter mix.  Last step, set the embossing powder with my craft heater.


I'm having fun with the Holiday Wishes stamp!  REMEMBER!  This stamp set can only be purchased this month!   Purchase $25 in My Acrylix stamps and you can get the Holiday Wishes for just $5!   (Savings of $12.95!)
