I used black Staz-On to stamp the "sheet music" several times onto a larger scrap of cream shimmer cardstock-it's a little harder to see the shimmer online, but for me it's just the right touch! I didn't worry too much about perfect stamping on these (my larger stamping block is packed up for the upcoming move, so I just grabbed one of my Cuttlebug plates and stuck the stamp to it. It actually worked pretty well.)-I knew that I would be cutting it up anyway. I put the stamped cardstock into my Cricut, and cut out various small star shapes using my Plantain Schoolbook cartridge, in sizes ranging from 3 inches down to a 1/2 inch. I tried it at a 1/4 inch, but that was just too small.
I am kind of addicted to stars in my scrapbooking right now, so I think they will be perfect for embellishing my Journal Your Christmas album! However, seeing them scattered on the navy cardstock, I have a sudden urge to make a layout with a navy background and scattered cream shimmer stamped stars...Be still my heart!
