Christmas Cards and Star Burst technique

Good Morning!!!  It's a fabulous day, even though it's cold outside!!  The mountains have snow and the view is gorgeous!!  We are under a  Winter Storm Watch until early Wednesday morning.  That means, we could have SNOW by Thanksgiving!  Didn't plan on going out for black Friday, anyway, but hoping it doesn't cause too much  problems for those that are planning on it.

I just realized that in all of my excitement over the SALE this week that I have not been sharing what I've been up to.  I was too busy making out my list of what I just HAD to have.  :-)

So, here is one project that I have finished for some of my Christmas cards.

This technique is so addicting!!!  It is called the star burst technique (or sunburst, if you are using a sun).  I just got my card table up in front of the sofa and watched TV while I made all of my images so I could put my cards together later.

I didn't take photos while I was making my cards, silly me, I was having too much fun but I will make another card and take photos for each step and post it, later, so you can see how it was done.  It's actually very simple!

The Star burst effect didn't show up as well in my photo...but hopefully next time I post, it will.
Love the look!!!

Here are the products I used to make this card.

Here is another Christmas card I made using a similar, but different, technique

On this card, I used the Kinda Eclectic stamp and laid my Very Vanilla card stock layer onto my Crumb Cake card base and then stamped with Crumb Cake ink.  Then, I removed the layer and added a piece of the music notes paper, from the Home for Christmas designer series paper, that had been sponged with Crumb Cake ink onto the card then secured the image on top of that. Then, I added a punched star from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper and tied a piece of 1/8" silver ribbon around the card.

I'll try to remember to make notes while I am creating!!  Sometimes, I just get too INTO my card making and then realize I should have been taking notes to share with you!!

I have more Christmas cards to share over the next few days and a few projects I have created.

Hope you have a Fantastic Day!!!  And, that you can take some time to PawsNStamp!!
