Stampin' Up! Starry Sky


Welcome to Week 3 of the new Colour Creations Blog Hop for 2022-2023. This week we are featuring another of the new In Colours and this time it is Starry Sky which is a vibrant royal blue colour. 

For this week's blog hop I was determined to create a male card as I have a distinct lack of male cards in my stash and there are a couple of male birthday's coming up. I have chosen to pair Starry Sky with Sahara Sand and Cajun Craze.

To start with I embossed a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock using the Gingham embossing folder.Below is a close up to see the effect.


 I then die cut some hexagons using the Beautiful Shapes dies in each of the 3 coloured cardstocks and a couple of pieces of the He's the Man DSP. I have also die cut some more of the Starry Sky cardstock using one of the All That Dies. The stars are actually cut outs from one of the He's the Man Specialty Papers. They come in Cajun Craze but they are also white on the reverse so I coloured the back of one of them using a Starry Sky Stampin' Blend. The sentiment is from the Framed Occasions stamp set and has been stamped in Starry Sky. Finally a bow using the Denim ribbon from the Current Mini catalogue which retires at the end of next month. Finally I've added a couple of the In Colour Matte Decorative Dots. 

Next in tonight's blog hop is the lovely Kate Morgan. I am sure as always she will create a beautiful card.
