Sunburst Sayings

MnTSunflowerOkay…time for a story.  Back on Tuesday, I posted this card for the SUO challenge.  I just LOVE my sunflower.

So…I needed to come up with some ideas for my stamping group and I just didn’t have a lot of time.  Well, I decided to make that card (from the SUO challenge) with my ladies.  Well…I was looking around for the dsp for that card and didn’t have enough for my little group, so I had to come up with a ‘plan b’.  Anyway, I’m running out of time so to make this card I pulled the flower off the other card and just made up a new base – sometimes you just have to recycle to make it work!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Shine On Specialty paper (raindrop print) – 3 3/4 x 5 1/2, add strip of Silver Foil – 5/8 x 5 1/2, add behind raindrop paper, add panel to card front
  • Pick two different circle framelits – cut the So Saffron with the larger one and Crushed Curry with the smaller one, then cut out both using the Sunburst Thinlit.  Bend up ‘petals’ and layer
  • Stamp greeting on Chocolate Chip using Versamark, white emboss and punch out with the 1 1/2″ circle punch, add to center of ‘flower’ using dimensionals
  • Punch out leaves from Mossy Meadow using the Festive Flower Builder Punch, add to back of ‘flower’ and add flower to card front.

Yep another QUICK and EASY card!  Gotta love it! And since we are on quick and easy…it’s quick and easy to subscribe to the Create with Connie and Mary May Mini Session.

Sprinkles of Life

CFSwapBoy…it won’t be too long now until the Stampin’ Up! retirement list comes out.  I know I will be losing many…that happens to me every year.  But I know FOR SURE that the Sprinkles of Life (the RMHC set) will retire as these only stay around for a year.  I don’t know about you I LOVE the set this year!  I  LOVE that it has a matching punch (and LOVE the punch!) and LOVE how well it works with the Sunburst thinlet (and you KNOW I LOVE that!)

Here’s the details…

  • So Saffron – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • So Saffron – 3 3/4 x 5 1/2, run through the Softly Falling Embossing Folder
  • Whisper White – used different sized punches to make the ‘clouds’, trace on Whisper White and cut out.  Add one to the So Saffron panel and trim edges.
  • Crushed Curry – cut out oval shape then the Sunburst Thinklet, stamp the line of dots in Basic Grey Archival, add to card front
  • Add second Whisper White Cloud using dimensionals then add panel to card front.
  • Stamp cloud 3 times using Basic Grey Archival on Smoky Slate, punch out using Tree Builder Punch, add to card front.
  • So Saffron – 3/8 x 2 3/4, stamp top line only of greeting using Basic Grey Archival, cut into banner on both ends and add to card front.
  • Add some small Basic Rhinestones to finish off

Sunburst Sayings

SunburstSayingsWhat a fun challenge for the Free for All on SCS today.  The challenge is to have the main focal point of the card be YELLOW!  AND it also was perfect for the Paper Players Rain or Shine challenge.  What can I say…I just HAD to use my Sunburst Thinlet AGAIN!  I do absolutely LOVE this thinlet…there really is just so much you can do with it to “brighten someone’s day”!

Here’s the details…

  • Crushed Curry – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Basic Black – 3 7/8 x 5 1/8
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5, layer onto Basic Black then add to card front
  • Crushed Curry print (It’s My Party dsp) – cut out oval using largest (not scalloped) oval then cut out using Sunburst thinlet, add using dimensionals
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/4 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Black Arrow print (It’s My Party dsp) – 3/4 x 3 3/4, cut into banner on both ends, add to card front
  • Stamp greeting using Basic Black and Crushed Curry markers, punch using 1 3/8″ circle punch, layer onto 1 1/2″ Basic Black circle and 1 3/4″ Silver Glimmer Scallop circle.  NOTE:  I do punch out the center of the Silver Glimmer so that I can adhere the punched circles to it.  Add to card front using dimensonals

How fun and easy is that?  And speaking of FUN and EASY…

Hello

HelloWell BUGGER!!  I’m JUST getting around to playing with this GREAT SAB set (Hello) and it will be gone!  SERIOUSLY…my two VERY FAVORITE SAB sets this year are limited edition ones and will be gone on the 15th.  SAY IT AIN’T SO!

Well…I saw a card on Pinterest (I know…I start a lot of posts out that way…but it’s TRUE!) and thought ‘okay…I an do that with SU stuff.  The hardest part was figuring out the cloud!

Here’s the details…

  • So Saffron – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Crushed Curry – 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, cut out using Sunburst Thinlet, stamp dotted line using Basic Black Archival, add sunburst to card front
  • So…how did I make my ‘cloud’ panel, start with a piece of Whisper White 3 1/2 x 4 1/4; now for the top portion of the cloud punch out two 1 3/4″ circles and three 1 1/4″ circles.  Layer them to look like clouds; for bottom – two 1 1/2″ circle and three 1 1/4″ circles.  Layer them to look like clouds.  (see picture at end of details); trace these onto your Whisper White piece and cut out.
  • Stamp hello using Crushed Curry and Little Sunshine using Basic Black Archival, add cloud panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off.

Okay…here’s the picture of my clouds…

Sunburst Sayings

CASology183One of my ‘must have’ things from the Occasions Mini was the AWESOME Sunburst Thinlet.  Well, of course, since it was a bundle I got the set too.  I LOVE the Sunburst Thinlet…no REALLY and I am using the bundle for my card set in the MARCH Create with Connie and Mary Mini Session.

I really wanted to play with this some this week (FINALLY some stamping time…school is kicking my BUTT this term) and when I saw the CASology challenge for ‘GLITTER’ well I knew I had a PERFECT CAS idea!

I am a mentor for a student going into the nursing program at my school.  She is a very sweet young lady and I think the mentor program will really make a difference in her succeeding.  I decided to make this card to give to her…she taking a couple rough classes this term.

Anyway…let’s talk about easy…and I mean SUPER EASY!  Here’s the details (don’t blink or you’ll miss them)…

  • Whisper White THICK – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 4
  • Gold Glimmer – 3 1/2 x 3 1/2, cut out with Circle Framelit then with Sunburst Thinlet, add to panel
  • Stamp greeting using Basic Black Archival
  • Stamp Shine on Whisper White using Versamark, gold emboss, punch out with 1 3/4″ Circle punch, add using dimensionals
  • Add panel to card front using dimensionals
