Stargazing Suite Customer Thank You May 2023 Blog Hop Card

Welcome and Thank you for visiting Christy’s Stamping Spot! I’m Christy and I’m an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. I’m excited to be taking part in Kylie and Bruno Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop with this fabulous group of Demonstrators from around the world!

Card Measurements, Supply List, and printable PDF tutorial for this project are found at the bottom of this blog post.

Each month I make and send Customer Thank You Cards for everyone who orders from my Online Store. This month I created a Thank You card using the fantastic new 2023-2024 Annual Catalog Stargazing Suite. This Suite includes gorgeous Designer Series Paper, the super fun Holographic Trio Specialty paper, and the Reach For the Stars bundle.


Start with a Berry Burst cardstock card base. Cut a Starry Sky cardstock panel and a Stargazing Designer Series Paper panel. Flick Wink of Stella to lightly cover the Stargazing Designer Series Paper panel for sparkle. Glue the panels to the card base slightly angled in different directions.

Die cut and fussy cut out planets from the Stargazing Designer Series Paper with the Reach For the Stars dies and your paper snips. Die cut out small planet rings with the Reach For the Stars dies from the Berry Burst sheet of the Holographic Trio Specialty paper. Slip one of the die cut planets through the rings using glue to secure it. Use glue to add the die cut & fussy cut Stargazing Designer Series Paper planets to the card front.

Die cut a Basic White cardstock label from the Cheerful Daisies dies. Stamp the sentiment from the Reach For the Stars stamp set in Starry Sky ink on the label. Then use the small blending brushes to add Berry Burst ink and Starry Sky ink to the label’s edges. Add Wink of Stella around the edges of the label for sparkle. Use Stampin’ Seal to add a bow tied with the Orchid Oasis Metallic Woven ribbon to the back of the sentiment label. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals & a glue dot (on the center of the bow) to add the label to the middle left side of the card front. Add three Tinsel Gem Four-Pack gems to the card front under the sentiment label.

Cut a Basic White cardstock inside panel to write your message. Use the small blending brushes to add Berry Burst ink and Starry Sky ink to the panel’s edges and then glue the panel to the inside of the card. Glue a flicked with Wink of Stella strip of Stargazing Designer Series Paper and stamp the sentiment from the Timeless Arrangements stamp set in Starry Sky ink to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.

I hope you enjoyed my Stargazing Suite Customer Thank You May 2023 Blog Hop card. You can order the Stargazing Suite, the Cheerful Daisies Dies, and the Timeless Arrangements stamp set in my Online Store.
