Starry Noel

How about another two-week challenge from The Cat’s Pajamas?  Today we’re all about those sparkly stars in the sky.  Just include some type of stars on your design and you’re in!

I pull together a rather patterned pop of colour on this design using one of our stamp sets brought back by popular demand J*lly H*liday.  In place of the O in Noel, I used a pretty star from the inside of our Holiday Toppers CutUps die.  All of this is paired with some zingy patterns from the I Like Winter collection from Echo Park.  

As you can tell I added some glitter strips using Scor Tape and glitter, some more stars from our 3 x 3 Stars CutUps dies and a bit of twine, a button and some enamel dots.  On the white layer behind the sentiment, I also stamped and embossed some of the stars from the new set Winter Style, it’s very subtle, but it adds some texture to the white, and you can probably see it more on the left side.  

Here’s the inside of the design with a cute postmark from the J*lly H*liday set, and a few extra stars!  

Now here’s the rules about the Stars challenge:  

  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat’s Pajamas blog and our Facebook page.
  2. If you want to play along you just upload your design to The Cat’s Pajamas blog page using the InLinkz button by the Monday, 11:55 EDT before the next challenge.
  3. You are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas stamp or die but if you have them we would love to see them.
  4. On the following TCP Tuesday, the winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $10 or $15 if a TCP product is used.
Pop on over to see the rest of The Cat Pack playing along today....

I love your mix of patterns and, like Nancy, the fab nontrad colors! I just love looking at all the elements on this wonderful card.
