Glory to the newborn king

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by, I'm honored to have you here! I'm sorry this post is later than usual, but I'm only just out of the studio, having completed an incredible eighty cards today! Yes, you read that right, 80! Sixty of them are those I started yesterday and another, newly designed set of 20. Whew!

The cards I'm sharing with you today are the second set which I created with the Newborn King stamp set from Stampin' Up!'s seasonal catalog. As I mentioned at the end of yesterday's post, where I shared the first set, this design is very different.

For this design I teamed the focal sentiment and the star, carefully placing them onto my clear block so that they would be able to be die cut using the second largest of the Stars Framelits. This first one is stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink on Very Vanilla card. I then cut the die and used the die itself as a template to cut a larger star from Cherry Cobbler card, because the largest star die was to big for the card. I then stamped the star from the Festival of Trees set randomly on the folded Very Vanilla card blank. The focal star is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals and I've once again added Crystal Effects to add a bit of sparkle.

This one uses Old Olive ink and Lost Lagoon card...

This one is Lost Lagoon ink and Lost Lagoon card...

Cherry Cobbler ink and card...

Just as I did with the set in yesterday's post, I also created the designs on Whisper White card too.
