Lucky Stars

Hello! Happy September! I'd say "how is it September already?!" usually, but having spent most of the year pregnant, I feel like it took forever to get here this year!

This one started off with the galaxy background on Arches cold pressed watercolor paper with Distress Inks:

I die cut the galaxy background with the stitched tag die and then stamped the sentiment in versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder. I stamped the star underneath and embossed it with liquid platinum embossing powder but i didn't love it, so i reheated the embossing powder and sprinkled silver embossing powder on it while it was still melty. I stamped the star border across the bottom of a white card base and embossed that with the silver embossing powder. I tucked some silver thread under the tag and adhered that to the card base and finished everything off with some tiny silver star sequins from Pretty Pink Posh!

Today is the day ordering for December Daily kits opens up! I have my eye on 3 of the mini kits and the main kit this year, and of course the stamps will probably be fantastic :)
I ordered a bunch of stuff from Simon Says Stamp last week: some of the new Lawn Fawn release, some pop-up dies,  slider dies, the chibi lights, some of the adorable retro-y Avery Elle Christmas stamps, and some random supplies. I'm loving having my parents here to help with the baby and Bree but man am I excited about getting back in the studio and trying out some of this new stuff after they leave! I can't wait to make all the Christmas cards!

Have a wonderful day!
