Bright & Beautiful

This stamp set, featured in the Stampin' Up Holiday Catalog is called Bright & Beautiful and it certainly is! 

Look at the detail in the filigree star, here stamped with VersaMark and hot-embossed with Silver Embossing Powder and then die-cut with the appropriate size Stars Framelit.  Beneath it is the coordinating larger size framelit in Silver Foil, pierced all around with the Piercing Tool and the Eclectic Piercing Pack, which has all the stars sizes in it. 

The base is Whisper White, the mat is Bermuda Bay, with a border across the top punched with the Confetti Stars Punch and backed with Silver Glitter Paper. There is a strip of retired DSP across the bottom, which pulls together the silver and Bermuda Bay color scheme and a tie of Bermuda Bay 1/8" Ribbon

The sentiment is from the Bright & Beautiful set, also hot-embossed in silver and popped up with Dimensionals.  I love that this year's Christmas stamp sets come with both a sentiment for the outside and one for the inside. The inside sentiment for this set is "Wishing you a BRIGHT & BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS & NEW YEAR that shines with happiness." How lovely and perfect is that?

Thanks for looking,

Carole
