Starburst Technique Christmas Card


Hi Friends!  I spent this past weekend in a lovely town called Grand Falls, in mid-western New Brunswick, to have a workshop with "Association for Community Living".  We had a ball!  I demonstrated from 2pm and didn't stop until after 9pm (of course by then we had enjoyed a potluck dinner and served the most delicious Chocolate Raspberry Port).  I adore the ladies that work at ACL and I really think the world of them for all they do with their ACL participants. 

I recently learned how to do a a fun 'Starburst' technique, which was featured in "Stampin' Success" - a bi-monthly magazine for Stampin' Up! demonstrators, and I couldn't wait to try it.  This is the card I came up with, for the make and take project and all the gals at ACL just LOVED it:

Cute hey?  This stamp set is just darling and I'm having so much fun playing with it!

Here's my video tutorial:

For this card I also used solid coloured card stock for the 'starburst', that had been run through the Big Shot with various embossing folders.

This morning I created this card, using scraps on my desk, from the "Merry Little Christmas" Simply Created Kit and the "Tag It" stamp set ($3 from this set is donated to Ronald McDonald House).
On Wednesday I'll be posting a video of another project that I demonstrated this past weekend, using the "Thankful Tablescape" kit and even I was rather impressed with it! *grin*  I had soooo much fun creating this project and I look forward to sharing it with you! Until then....
