Starburst Card With Modern Medley

Stampin Up Starburst Card Sassy Salutation Birthday Holiday Catalog

Hello Folks. . .   happy day to ya.  Today I have a starburst card to share with you.  This is my very first try at this.  I love the new Modern Medley Designer Paper #126926.  Black and White/Vanilla is a stunning combination.  

I cut four different strips of the Modern Medley DP.  They are cut at 1.5 x 4.  Next take the strip to your paper cutter and line up opposite corners in the groove of your paper cutter and cut.  Now you have two perfect triangles.  Next cut a piece of scrap paper 2 3/4 x 5 and mark your center (2.5").  Have your strips lined up in front of you to establish your pattern.  Less confusion that way.  You want the strips to stick down nicely so use your Stampin' Up glue stick and make sure you cover the whole piece especially the edges.  Next take your strips and start arranging them.  Make sure that the strips are hanging off the top edge.  When you have all your strips on, trim off the edges so your original size is back to 2 3/4 x 5.  Viola' you have a pretty starburst pattern.  Now if I have totally confused you (LOL) google "Starburst Card" and several videos will appear.  

But I wasn't done yet.  For my focal point I used our Delicate Doilies Sizzlets #126999.  This die is beautiful but definitely requires patience.  If you take some wax paper and place on the die and next place your cardstock down you will have an easier time with all the small cut outs.  I cut two, one in Basic Black and one Very Vanilla, I was looking for a positive/negative look.  I took my VV half and glued it on.  I didn't like the look where the two came together so I cute a 1/8" BB strip and it made the center softer and unnoticeable.  My circle is a 2" circle.  My stamp set is Sassy Salutations (132070/126707) – great stamp set!!  I finished it off with a little VV 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed this card.  I was looking for something new and different.  I think it turned out darling.  If I can help, please let me know.  If you need Stampin' Up product please click on the link below and shop at my web online store.  Thanks for stopping by, have a great stamping day.  Until next time.  Toodles

Fun Halloween Gift Idea

Craft Fair Ideas Stampin Up Holiday Mini Punch art Pumkins

Hello Folks. . .  hope you are doing well today.  I have a cute fun Halloween gift idea.  As you now I'm gearing up for some craft fair fun.  My black stripped paper bag is not from Stampin' Up, I found them at the dollar store a few weeks back and thought they were perfect for Halloween.  I cut a piece of Basic Black 3.25 x 6 and scored in half.  Next is a layer of designer paper from Sweater Weather #132184 from the Holiday Catty.  I used one of our tags from the Two Tags Biz Die.  I could not find it in our catalog so I'm thinking they retired it.  I stamped my background with a couple of dot stamps from various sets.  My greeting comes from the That's A Ticket Set from the last mini.  I love punch art pumpkins, so I thougth this was a perfect place for one.  I punched three ovals from my Small Oval Punch, sponged the edges with Pumpkin Pie Ink, added a stem and some curly cues and viola' you have a cute party favor.  I cut a slit in the back of my bag for a "Hershey's Chocolate Bar" but you can do whatever fancies you for your gift idea.

Thinets Cards Dies Are Now Available

Stampin Up Bloomin With Kindness  Holicay Catalog New Thinlits Dies

Hello Folks and happy day to ya.  Today I have a cased card to share with you.  What brought it to my attention was the color combination.  It's not one I would normally have selected but it works very well don't you think.  The card base is one of our newest colors to our color families this year Smoky Gray, topped with a piece of Whisper White.  Next is a mat of Daffodil Delight and another new In Color Strawberry Slush.  This is a clean and simple card, takes no time to do.  I did add a little extra step though by embossing my image with Craft White Ink and Natural White Embossing Powder.  I think it gave it a little more pizzazz.  My sentiment is from the same stamp set as my flower, Blooming With Kindness.  My pretties are 1/4" Stitch Daffodil Delight Grosgrain Ribbon and some of our new Candy Dots.  I can't say enough about our Candy Dots, so convenient and easy to use.  It you want to make it into a brad we have them too, but I don't see why you would need a brad.  This keeps everything nice and flat for easy mailing.
