Happy Chanukah with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

Hello everyone!! Today it is my turn on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog.

Since Chanukah started this week, I created a card to celebrate this holiday by using two sets of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps-"Star of David" and "Chanukah."

The first step for my card was to heat emboss the sentiment from "Chanukah" with platinum embossing powder.

Next I created my pattern paper using the stars from the "Star of David" set. I layered my stars in no specific order onto my white card stock and used a MISTI tool for the stamping. I always have a lot of fun making patterned paper and this stamp set is perfect for it. The stars are in four different sizes and can cover quite a bit of background.

I chose to use a soft blue ink for the patterned paper because I was using a soft blue embossing powder to make some solid blue areas when I put the card together.

I trimmed my stamped background into a 3" by 5 1/2" piece. I then cut a 1 1/2" piece off, taped the top off so 1/4" of it was showing and smeared clear ink along the top.

I then heat embossed it with powder that matched the dye ink I used. I adhered this piece to my A2 card base so the the solid line was under the sentiment.

I repeated the trimming the paper and heat embossing a section of patterned paper two more times and adhered the pieces to the card.

My last step was to adhere platinum and blue gems randomly around the sentiment.

I hope this card inspires you to make some stamped paper yourself. If you feel like getting yourself an early Christmas present, use my code nora2017 to get 15% your total order at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamp Store.
