One of the many benefits of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is that you have access to the supply list of products used for catalog samples.  That was a helpful starting place!

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Begin with a 5 1/2 x 4 card base of Whisper White Thick card stock.  

So Many Stars Bundle from Stampin' Up! Catalog CASE by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty #maryfish #stampinpretty

Cut a second piece of Whisper White Thick card stock to 5 1/2 x 4.  Use snipped-to-size Stamping Sponges to add the following classic ink colors to create the “galaxy background”:  Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo, Balmy Blue, Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Night of Navy, and Bermuda Bay. 

TIP:  When sponging ink onto cardstock, start with an extremely light touch in a circular motion.  This is the best way to prevent ‘hard’ sponge marks on your card stock. 

Squeeze an Aqua Painter filled with water and gently flick water droplets onto the background.  Let soak for 30 seconds, then dab with a paper towel. 

Once the ink is dried completely, rub with an Embossing Buddy.  Stamp with Versamark Ink and cover with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool.

Use a die-cutting and embossing machine to crop a piece of Whisper White card stock with the largest Stitched Nested Labels Die and a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper with the Stitched Stars Die. 

Rub the label die with an Embossing Buddy.  Use a Stamparatus to position and stamp the sentiment (So Many Stars) in Versamark Ink as shown.  Cover with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool.  Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
