Sunburst Card

Standard

Happy Saturday!  Today I am feeling very lazy.  It is a beautiful breezy day, and normally I would be out playing in the dirt, but all I want to do is take a nap!  It has been a good while since we got any rain, so I did go outside and water my flowers.  Look at this freaky guy who was waiting for me out on the front porch (*shudder* I HATE spiders!):

I did want to make a card, tho, and I figured a sunburst card would be easy and fun to make.  I went back to my favorite DSP–the Moonlight stack–and chose four designs that looked good together.  I THOUGHT I remembered how to make this card, so I merrily started cutting the strips.  Well–let me tell you, if you are not paying attention, this is NOT a fun and easy card to make!  After trying several times to line up my strips, I decided to head to you tube to watch some videos and try to figure out what I was doing wrong!

Here is my tip: make sure to start at the lower left corner of your strips of DSP when cutting them in half!  It works great when you do that!

Color blocking–an oldie, but goody revisited!

Standard

Whew, I have been holed up in my stamp cave for the past few days, working on a project that is due on Friday–so I can’t share it with you all until then!  I finished it up last evening, and then I just had to take a little extra time to play with some of my new stash!

When I saw pictures of the new in-colors for this year, I was a little underwhelmed.  But, when I got to see them in person, I was in love!  I can’t decide which are my favorites, but I definitely lean towards Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey!  I used those colors, and papers from the Moonlight DSP stack to make my card.  The color blocking technique is perfect for showcasing several different patterns all at once, without overwhelming a card.  I had to use my new “Just Sayin’ ” set, too.  “Hey There!” is such a perfect Southern sentiment, lol!

This was a fun card to make, and it came together quickly!  Hope ya’ll like it!
