A Picture Perfect Starfish

The Occasions Catalog is full of so many great new products.  I had to pace myself and I finally got the Picture Perfect Stamp Set.  The images you can create with this are so pretty.  Here is the stamp set:


I love those roses but today I am showing off the starfish.  I saw a color challenge from Can You Case It and a sketch challenge from Paper Craft Crew that I knew would work with this set.  Here are the challenges:



Here is my card:


It is hard to see in the photo but the starfish is stamped with two colors, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.  The stamps are photopolymer which makes lining them up so easy!  I should also mention that I used the Shine On DSP, because I liked the look of the silver foil and kraft.  I also used the Corrugated Paper for the little circle found in the Annual Catalog...a great and easy way to add texture.  And I used some retired products...the Blackberry Bliss twine and button were Sale-A-Bration items from last year.  Can I just take a moment and give a shout out to the best purple ever!  I love Blackberry Bliss and am already sad about its upcoming retirement.  Although I am sure Stampin' Up! will come up with another fabulous In Color for me to fall in love with.  Below is a shopping list!  Thanks for looking!
