Stunning Starry Skies by Heather Telford

Hi Crafty Friends,

It is always a special day when we get to feature one of Heather Telford‘s card designs. And, we are especially lucky today since she is sharing two gorgeous designs using the Concord & 9th Star Turnabout stamp and die set.

To create these beautiful designs, she is using the new watercolors from Altenew for the dreamy blue sky and black cardstock for the striking midnight sky. I am not sure which I like best, do you?

The one thing I do know though, you can never go wrong with any of Heather’s creations! Be sure to pop over to her blog… but only after you have soaked in all the beauty of these new designs here.
