I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s InKing Royalty Blog Hop.  There were some great ideas for birthday cards.  You can see my post by clicking HERE.   And you can go thru the full hop from my page.

Today I am sharing the Morning Star stamp set.  It is a sweet stamp set that pairs with the Stitched Stars  Dies that were part of the Holiday Catalog.  The stamp set they were paired with in that catalog retired, but the dies carried on.  I love that Stampin’ Up! is extending the life of dies and punches.  That is so nice on our pocket books!  Here is today’s card.



The flowers on the card are the morning glory flowers and vines.  Some may consider them weeds actually.  I always thought they were pretty first thing in the morning.  I used the Rococo Rose for the flowers and Pear Pizzaz for the vines.  They are my flowers and don’t have to be the correct color.  I love the Rococo Rose.

I used the flowers as background for one of the larger of the Stitched Stars dies.  The center star is two sizes smaller.  I stamped the star stamp with the Rococo Rose as well.  The stars are raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals for depth.

I have loved the Scalloped Linen Ribbon since it debuted.  I just never seem to have the proper place for it.  Today’s project is Perfect!!!  I paired the ribbon with the new Label Me Fancy Punch.  I punched out the sentiment, which is from the stamp set.  I also used the ribbon slot that is part of the punch.  There are guides on the bottom of the punch on each end of the slot to assist you in lining it up.  I was very pleased at how easy it worked.  I usually have a backing for my sentiment layers.  With the ribbon slides and the sentiment like a buckle, I did not feel it needed a backing.  You will see me using that punch a lot more now that I have played with it!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you liked today’s card and will return tomorrow for another one.
