Punchy Starburst & My News!!


Have you all noticed the wonderful starbursts everyone has been making lately? I first saw Fran's gorgeous creations, so I had to follow the link she gave, to see how to make them. Donna Moore has some wonderful instructions over at Splitcoaststampers. I used my Shimmery White card stock, and Paper Vellum to make my starburst. It really wasn't as difficult that I thought it might be.

The elegant sentiment is from Flourished Christmas by Flourishes, LLC. I stamped with Whisper White Craft ink first, then later decided I needed to emboss it with White embossing powder. The designer paper is Wintergreen, and the punches I used for the center of the starburst are Snow Blossom and Spring Flower Bouquet. I used a Rain Dot from Cloud9 Design for the center. The bottom corners of my card were pierced with the tools from my Crafter's Tool Kit. The ribbon is Whisper White Tafetta from SU.

So.....are you interested in my news? If you look at my sidebar, it's all there. I am a guest designer for Starving Artistamps!!! I am so excited, as I have never had this opportunity before! I just placed my first order, so it will be a little while before I have anything to show you. I had a tough time deciding between all the wonderful stamps over there! Thanks so much Tracey for this awesome opportunity!!

Thank you all for stopping by!
