Let's get to the star card made with the Sprinkled Expressions stamp set. The base of the card was made by Godby (God be) With Us Stamper Sherrie Bryant. In the center of the Designer Frames Embossing she had stamped her greeting on the So Saffron Card Stock with Old Olive Classic Ink. We couldn't remember which Stampin' Up! stamp set it came from. So, I used her card and made a couple of changes to turn it into a Sale-a-bration card.
Instead of stamping directly onto the So Saffron Card Stock, I used my Stampin' Write Markers, So Saffron, More Mustard and Old Olive, to get a variety of colors and stamped on Whisper White Card Stock. Sherrie's color combination, So Saffron, More Mustard and Old Olive, was taken from the Color Coach. It sure worked well for the colors of my stars.
The stamped Whisper White piece was layered onto an Old Olive Card Stock piece. Then I got all fancy and embossed and trimmed a So Saffron Card Stock piece with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder and filled the frame. Upon reflection, I thought it might have been cool if I had embossed a More Mustard Card Stock piece for inside the frame. It might have looked like I cut out the inside of the frame. Oh well, maybe next time.
The card needed an extra touch. My Sizzix Big Shot to the rescue! I die-cut two stars from the Stars #2 Originals Die, one in Old Olive Card Stock and the other in More Mustard Card Stock. With a So Saffron brad, from the Subtles Brads, in the center, all my colors were pulled together. Nice, don't you think?
