Wood and Copper – not just for home décor!

Hello, and welcome to Part 2 of my Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars bundle showcase. If you missed it, you can find Part 1 here. Last week’s project only used the Stitched Stars dies from the bundle so this week I have incorporated the So Many Stars stamp set as well.

Wood and copper are a really popular combination at the moment in home décor and accessories. With this in mind, I decided to create a card using this same combination!

Let’s make it…

The base card is created from Early Espresso cardstock. The DSP layer actually comes from the Pressed Petals Suite which might come as a surprise! Its important not to feel constrained by the products. Don’t think that particular Suites have to stick together, mix and match so that you are getting maximum versatility from your purchases!

Across the top of the DSP layer, I have stamped a few of the small star-cluster images from the So Many Stars stamp set in Delicata Celestial Copper ink. This adds a beautiful subtle look which catches the light wonderfully. I have also wrapped a length of the Copper Trim around the DSP layer for added interest.

The focal point of the card is provided by the fabulous star swirl from the Stitched Stars dies which I have cut from Copper Foil Sheet. The additional stars that are cut out by the die have been adhered around the card too (the one in the top left corner is on a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional).

The sentiment is heat embossed in Copper Stampin’ Emboss powder onto Early Espresso cardstock and cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangle dies. This is adhered to the main card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final touch is a couple more stars cut from Copper Foil Sheet and adhered to the sentiment piece to tie it in to the rest of the card.

Next time…
