I fell in love with this Hello Summer Starry Night Project Kit – Spellbinders( SPL ) background. This includes a space galaxy red rubber stamp that covers your entire card panel with a beautiful starry night design. You can purchase the Space Galaxy Stamp Set( SPL ) stamp separately or in the Hello Summer Starry Night Project Kit – Spellbinders( SPL ).

I created an alcohol ink background on Yupo paper. Once it was dry, I heat embossed the Hello Summer Starry Night Project Kit – Spellbinders( SPL ) background with white embossing powder. Heat embossing on Yupo paper can be very tricky. Since Yupo paper is synthetic, sorts of like plastic, it can melt so I only heat embossed a little at a time. I had a little warping but I added foam tape to the entire background before adding to an A2 size white card panel.

The sentiment I used came from Hello Summer – It’s Magic! Bundle – Spellbinders( SPL ) which I stamped and added to the middle of my card.

There are more bundles available that are discounted, including an “I Want It All Bundle”, so be sure to head over and snag them up on these great deals!
