Spring Starburst

We did starburst cards in fall 2013 but haven’t done one since.  This is such a great way to use your bits and pieces of DSP – all you need is 4 pieces that measure 4” X 1 1/2”.  Of course, it is helpful if the colors coordinate, but this is not always necessary.

SAMSUNG CSCI used bits and pieces of DSP from my All Abloom DSP Stack..  Speaking of this paper stack, it is currently on the retired list selling for $3.48 while quantities last (see Retiring All Abloom).  The 4 X 1 1/2” DSP rectangles are cut diagonally and adhered to a piece of cs measuring 5 X 2 3/4” – to speed up the process, I used a glue stick .  The most important placement trick is to mark the vertical center of your 5 X 2 3/4 cs so that the center 2 pieces are perfectly centered.  The remaining diagonals simply abut to the previous piece.  After the glue is dry, we take GOOD scissors and trim around the card stock leaving this beautifully designed card layer.  I added a bit of Daffodil Delight 1/4” ribbon, a doily, a few rhinestones, and my message.  Although this card says “happy mother’s day,” there are many Teeny Tiny Wishes stamps to choose from.  I layered my finished starburst on Pistachio Pudding, Daffodil Delight and Lost Lagoon.  The starburst technique is a great tool for quick cards that use up your DSP scraps!

This is the 3rd of 4 cards for our May Stamp Camp.  I hope you can come.  I can arrange for an alternate time if it is more convenient – Thursday or Friday morning or an evening next week.  Just let me know what works best for you.  Scheduled dates and times are:  Thursday May 7 and Friday May 8 from 2 – 9 PM, and Saturday May 9 from 9 AM – 4 PM.  It’s helpful if you can let me know which day you might be attending, but this is not required. 

Check back shortly for the final May Stamp Camp card where we use the Irresistibly Yours DSP.

Blessings, Rosemary – 630/759-3089 – paperrose01@aol.com
