Pinterest inspiration {bella blvd}

Today on the Bella Blvd blog we are sharing projects inspired by this fabulous star garland Pinterest-found image. Stop by the Bella Blvd blog to see what some of us on the team came up with.

I made two different cards using the stars idea.

I was inspired by the stars in the image to make a star-filled ornament. I love the look of the Christmas paper peeking our from behind the little stars.

A simple, but sparkly, sentiment leaves the focus on the star ornament.

Supplies: Christmas Countdown (Pattern paper: Christmas, Borders)

I used my Silhouette Cameo to make a pattern of stars hanging on a garland using dashed lines between the stars. Different pattern papers peek out from behind the star cutouts, except for three red stars that are popped up off the front of the card.

A fun Merry Merry Merry speech bubble adds the sentiment to the front.

Supplies: Christmas Countdown (Pattern paper: Believe, City Sidewalks, Christmas Cuties), Captions stickers

Thanks for stopping to see my cards today!

Okay, I am dying to know how you made the stars in the circle shape for your merry card; I LOVE IT!

I'm also curious about the stars in the circle shape. Did you use your Cameo to create a circle shape and then just randomly fill it with different sized stars or is there an easier way? However you did it, it's gorgeous!
