Trish gave us a list of previous Queen for the Day names starting with S or T. I chose stampin'nana as I'd recently seen a card of hers that I totally fell in love with. It uses leaves, stamped and heat embossed in different metallic embossing powders, and then cut out. Here's her card:
The metallic powders immediately made me think of how great it would be to do something similar with a star stamp for a Christmas card. I used four of my metallic powders to emboss a simple star stamp, cut them out, and arranged them around an appropriate sentiment (embossed in a fifth ep). The stars are popped up on dimensionals as is the panel on the cardbase.
It's also for my September quota for the SCS Christmas Card Challenge.
