Star Burst Christmas Card


When you are a Stampin Up! Demonstrator you get a magazine in the mail every other month called Stampin Success.  This magazine is full of ideas and techniques to make different things such as cards, scrapbook pages and 3D items.  Last month they showed us how to make this star burst card.  It was really easy to do and I love how it looks.

The first thing you do is to cut a piece of copy paper (the paper needs to be thin) 4 x 5.25.  Then you draw a square on the place where you want your sentiment to go.  I just used a B Clear Block and traced around it.


Then you take a ruler and draw a line from one corner to the other making sure you pass through the square you drew.  Move your ruler about an inch and draw another line making sure your intersect the two lines inside your box.  Keep doing this until you have gone all the way around your paper.


This is what

Cut out every other section all the way around.



Place your stencil over a piece of Whisper White card stock and stamp it.  I used Festive Flurry with Pool Party Ink.



Place your sentiment over the square making sure you cover your drawn box.  I used the stamp set called Merry Little Christmas over a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper.

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas


I love Christmas cards.  I love making them and I love getting them especially when they are homemade.  If you haven’t started your cards after my Twelve Days of Christmas Series I did November 1st – 12th, then you need to get moving (yes, I am bossy!).  Just in case you need another idea, here is a card using the stamp called Merry Little Christmas.   I stamped the background using the snowflakes from Festive Flurry in Illuminate Ink.  I love that ink for snowflakes because it gives them a little shine.  The shape on the top of the card was cut out in Marina Mist and Silver Glimmer Paper using a Big Shot die called Oval Accent Bigz Clear.  If you cut it exactly in half you can make two cards with this design.  I topped off the card with a Frosted Finishes Embellishment.  These are so beautiful in person and is hard to capture in a picture.  They just sparkle and shine when the light hits them.

The Twelve Days Of Christmas – Day 7


Welcome to day 7 of the Twelve Days Of Christmas series. The point of this series is to show you that you can make some nice Christmas cards quickly and easily.

This Christmas card uses Season Of Style Designer Washi Tape.  Washi Tape is very easy to use.  You just peel it off the roll and stick it on your card stock.  It makes it look like Designer Series Paper but is so much easier to use this way.  The stamp is from Stampin Up’s Holiday Catalog and is called Merry Little Christmas.  I just used the Chalk Talk Framelits to use it out, tied a piece of Cherry Cobbler 1″ Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon at the top and put it on using Dimensionals.  Easy!
