Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge: Bright & Beautiful

Happy Wednesday!  We've reached the mid point of the week and boy do I have something special for you.  Today I decided to play along with the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge which totally had me thinking of Christmas so I decided to share a sneak peak at a brand new stamp set that will be in the new Holiday catalog that's released next week (and give you the opportunity to get this set for FREE, see later for all the details).

For this card I started with Baked Brown Sugar for the card base and then added a layer of Garden Green cardstock under the Whisper White layer.  On this I used the new Bright & Beautiful stamp set and used Stampin' Write Markers to color in the greeting before stamping and then used the Encore Gold ink to stamp the two small snowflakes on the Whisper White Piece.

For the main focal piece I stamped the largest star on Baked Brown Sugar cardstock with the same color ink and then cut it out with the Big Shot and Star Collection Framelits.  Next I took a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and stamped the next size down star in Versamark ink and then embossed it with the Heat Tool and Gold Embossing Powder.  I added a Garden Green candy Dot from the Regals Candy Dots and attached the smaller star to the larger one using dimensionals.

I really liked how this card turned out and it's got lots of elements to help really make it stand out, so it would be a great holiday card (have you decided on what cards your making for the holidays???  I'm behind and haven't even started). 

Now I know I told you have the opportunity to get this brand new stamp set for FREE before it's even released for sale.  Here are the details:
