Last month we used the Sunburst Thinlit Die and experienced how easy it was to make a card using this wonderful tool.  For April’s Stamp Camp, we are going to move up a level!  Try to ignore the crooked “Happy Birthday to  you” center below!  Maybe I need new glasses!

2016-03-27 2016-03-27 003This sunburst features 3 colors of paper instead of the 2 we used last month.  We start with a Melon Mambo base and add 2 coordinating pieces of It’s My Party DSP.  The top DSP is cut a bit larger and is slightly rotated before it is adhered to the top layer and trimmed.  Can you see the little curly cues, stars, and other little shapes?  Wonder where they come from? 

2016-03-27 2016-03-27 004Welcome to the Party Pop-Up Thinlits Dies!  The die-cut “Hip Hip Hooray” provides us with little embellishments we can use on this and other celebratory cards.  I added several embellishments and 2 balloons to further accessorize the card.  So how do we do this?  First, we make sure to use the Precision Base Plate for a nice clean cut.  Second, we make sure the arrows on the die are exactly on the fold creases before we run the die thru the Big Shot several times.  Third, we use the Big Shot Die Brush to miraculously remove all those itty bitty pieces!  Before we adhere the inner cs to the card, we gently tent the “Hooray” portion so that it will tent out when the card closes.  Pretty cool!

This is just one of the Happy Birthday cards we will be making at the April Stamp Camp.  I hope you can come.  Dates and times:  Thursday April 7th from 12:30 PM to 9 PM; Friday April 8th from 2 PM to 9 PM; Saturday April 9th from 9 AM to 4 PM.  If you can let me know if you care coming, and what day, it is helpful but not required.  If you prefer doing more of 1 card, and less of another, let me know when you have made your decision and I will custom prepare your kit for any 4 cards you wish to do.

Hope your Easter was wonderful!
