Stamperia Pink Christmas Star Home Decor
Hello, Friends! Happy Monday! I spent the weekend decking the halls, and wanted to share this sweet little Stamperia Pink Christmas Star home decor piece with you today.
I started with a 10″ wooden star cutout. Then I had to break out my Mixed Media Boots from the Closet of Shame. I wish I had thought to take step out photos, but here’s what I remember about the process.
- First, apply Tea Dye Distress Ink directly to the surface of the wood. Spritz with water to allow the ink to activate and spread. Blot up excess with paper towels. Heat dry.
- Next, use a palette knife to apply a layer of Distress Crackle Medium. Add a not too thick layer…like mayonnaise on a tomato sandwich…which all my southern friends will understand immediately!
- While the texture paste is wet, sprinkle it with a little Bridal Veil Embossing Glitter. Then gently heat. The nice thing about Distress Crackle is that you can heat it.
- Finally, water down some white chalk paint and brush it randomly over the surface of the star.

Next I just added on layer after layer of chipboard , die cut greenery, flowers, cheesecloth, miniature pine cones…anything that struck my fancy. As a final touch, spread some Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive and then cover with Stampendous Shaved Ice. This stuff really sparkles like snow!
This was a fun project to make, and I wore the glitter proudly the rest of the day! What can I say…I really get into my work!
I hope you all have a wonderful Monday, filled with joy and creativity!
