October Technique Class - Starburst Background

What a fun technique this was, when I was making up the cards, I thought that this was such a great technique, one that I was sure that my ladies would like.  I wasn't wrong!!  I love techniques that are not so hard that you can't recreate these cards with your own stamps and supplies.

Create a striking background using Designer Series Paper. Cut Four 1 ½ x 4 inch pieces of DS paper, but these diagonally and set up with the point of the triangle pointing down. Arrange to your likin, glue to a piece of cardstock that you have marked the middle on. 

Here are the cards that we made:

Card 1 – Autumn Wishes Burst
Stamp Sets:  Among the Branches, Thankful Forest Friends (inside verse)
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, Delightful Dijon, Cajun Craze
Paper:  Tangerine Tango Base 5 ½ x 8 ½
Daffodil Delite Layer 4 x 5 ¼, Whisper White 5 x 2 ¾, Very Vanilla Layer 5 x 3 ¾
Accessories:  Burlap Ribbon, Dimensions, Scallop Punch, Circle Punch, Glue sticks, Glue Dots

**For the “Star Burst” start with  4  - 1 ½ x 4 inch strips of DS paper.  Take these strips and cut them in half DIAGONLLY, place upside down with point of triangle pointing down on your scratch paper. Rearrange for the effect that you would like. Take the 5 x 2 ¾ white cardstock and mark the middle.  Cover the entire white cardstock piece with glue stick.  Put one of the triangles with the point to the right of the middle mark and one to the left of the middle mark.  Keep adding on each side of this triangle making sure that your white cardstock is completely covered.  Once down, trim from the back using scissors all the way around your white cardstock. Now adhere this piece to the 5 x 3 ¾ piece of cardstock, stamp sentiment at the bottom.

Card 2 – Merry Christmas Starburst
Stamp Sets:  Holly Jolly Greetings
