Yesterday I had my first play with the Star of Light Stamp Set and the coordinating Starlight Thinlits.
The first thing I did was to get some retired cardstock – Lost Lagoon – and tested all the dies to see what result was achieved with each!
I adhered the die cuts to the back of the cardboard that the magnetic sheet, that I store my dies on, is attached to!
I didn’t really have a design in mind for this card.
All I knew was that I wanted to use the sun stamp from Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set, so the rays shine out from behind the star.
I saw this idea on Pinterest and thought it looked stunning.
To make this card, I started with a base of Whisper White Cardstock, then a layer of Night of Navy, and a top layer of Whisper White, which I wiped with my Embossing Buddy.
I inked up the stamp using Versamark and stamped the sun towards the top of the top layer, so I had plenty of room for the sentiment.
I sprinkled it with Silver Embossing Powder and heat set it.
I took a piece of Night of Navy and wiped over it with my Embossing Buddy.
I chose the large patterned star in the Star of Light Stamp set, inked it with Versamark and stamped onto the Night of Navy.
I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.
I die cut it using the plain large star from the Starlight Thinlits.
I wiped another area on the cardstock with my Embossing Buddy so I could stamp the sentiment with Versamark.
The sentiment is from the Star of Light Stamp Set.
Once I stamped the stamp, I sprinkled White Embossing Powder over it and heat set it!
I found a die in the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits Dies which fitted the sentiment beautifully – must remember this die!
I adhered the three layers of the card together using Tombow and then attached the star over the top of the sun, using Dimensionals.
Then I used Dimensionals to attach the sentiment near to the bottom of the card front.
My final touch was to overdose on Rhinestones, but it really does make the card sparkle – see the last photograph!
I also added two Rhinestones to the sentiment, in the centre of the two squiggle patterns!
A very clean, simple card which I’m pleased with – hope you like it, too.
That’s about it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.

Hi, Pearl. I think seeing the sun behind the star looks great – wish it was my idea. ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
