Shine like a star


Hello everyone! I hope you're having a merry Christmas with your loved ones. This year I'm rocking this star pattern that I made with a new image plate from Essence. It's only available in a set including a stamper and scraper, which I already have, but I really wanted the star design. The star shapes I have on other patterns are quite small which makes them harder to work with and less recognizable. (And besides, €3 for the whole set is a pretty good deal!) I used Color Club Where's The Soiree as my black, as usual, and the gold is China Glaze 2030. This look isn't very Christmassy per se, but I love it anyway. So much that I might even wear it again for New Year's Eve ^^ Happy Holidays!

  14. I'd seen this plate already and immediately added it to my wishlist. I think I'll eventually dig in and get it. Essence should think about releasing more plates, maybe one every once in a while as part of a TE.
    Pity they don't sell this separately.

  15. As much as I love butterflies and flowers, this plate seems more the way to go. Very modern and cute.
    Dear Mr. Essence, please release more image plates.

  23. Ik heb deze image plate nog nooit gezien! Misschien omdat ik er niet op let, want ik heb ooit een keer een plate van Essence gekocht, met stamper en schraper, maar die waren zo slecht! Daarom kijk ik er denk ik niet naar in de winkel :P

  24. This is the first stamping plate that I have tohught" Gosh I need this!". I love the "love" sign... so where did you get this plate? :D

    Oh and yea, great design :) Simple, yet chic.

  25. Thank you guys for sharing your thoughts! ^^ Here in the Netherlands, Essence is sold at Trekpleister and Kruidvat stores, I got mine from the latter.

    @marox79: I totally agree with you! They really should release more plates, especially ones like this that have more modern designs instead of the flowers and butterflies that we already see so much.

    Where did you buy the plate?

  27. @paige: It's cute, right? ^^ Here in the Netherlands, Essence is sold at Trekpleister and Kruidvat stores, I got mine from the latter.

  28. Looove the design!
    How do you make the stars appear so solid? Whenever I don't use konad nail polish my designs appear to be thin and see through-ish. :(

  29. Look gorgeous. Do you know where you can buy this plate in the UK? Or Even anywhere online that will ship it to the UK?

  30. @beautiful: The stars look so solid because the polish I used is very opaque. So it's not necessary to use a Konad polish for stamping, any polish that covers well will do :-)

    @Danielle: Thank you :) Unfortunately Essence products aren't sold online :-( Wish they were! It would make maaany girls very happy.
