I found this great video from Stampin' Up! showing how to make the star boxes featured in the new supplement. I haven't tried them yet but plan to soon. Check it out :)
I have been also continuing with my Christmas Card making before my trip too as Christmas is getting closer and closer by the minute......just 65 days now to be exact....Aaaaghhhh!!! and I haven't even made half of my cards yet. I will have to really get a move on in November.
I had some little stars floating around on my work area from a couple of previous projects using the Confetti Stars Punch
so just had to make a shaker card. I love shaker cards :):) Using the Shaker Frames. They come in a pack of 6 lots of these varying sizes below for just $8.95. On my card I used the largest outside circle
I adhered the Designer Series Paper on to the Pool Party cardstock first, then added the largest shaker frame circle. I placed all my little star bits ( Pool Party, Whisper White and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper ones ) inside the shaker frame. My DSP is from the retired Winter Frost Specialty DSP but you can use any of the current ones like the All is Calm Specialty DSP and would have the same great effect.
I then built up the top with a pool party circle by cutting 2 circles together from the Circles Collection Framelits Die to fit the shaker frame.
Then the same idea using the Stars Framelits Dies. I stamped the largest star stamp from the Bright and Beautiful Stamp Set and chose the Framelit that fitted the star and the next framelit 2 sizes down. Popped the star on the top with a little bit of Liquid Multipurpose Glue, added a couple of Rhinestone Basic Jewels and done.
