Hi, Stamper. Time for another Sunday bonus blog post. Over the last few months, I’ve done several cards using the Starburst technique. This card was made for a live stream in mid-May. For this card layout, the starburst is coming from the left side, making it a little different.
My card starts with an Orchid Oasis card base 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. Strips of 2022-2024 In Color DSP were added to a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic White CS and then adhered to the card front. (See the video below to see how they were cut before adhering to the CS).
The boots, from Flowering Rainboots were stamped in Orchid Oasis ink, the flower stems in Parakeet Party ink and the flowers in Sweet Sorbet ink. These were all then die cut using the Rainboot Dies. I used paper snips to trim a bit off the top of the boots, so the flowers would appear to be popping up from inside the boots. The stems were adhered to the backside of the boots and they were both adhered to the card front with liquid glue. Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals were used to adhere the flowers.
Inside the card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic White CS. The sentiment is stamped in the center in Tahitian Tide ink, while the flower pots are stamped along the bottom in Smoky Slate and the seed packet in Orchid Oasis inks. The flowers were stamped in Sweet Sorbet and then die cut before adhering to the inside layer.
