Starburst Technique

I thought it time that I had ago at this technique Starburst. This is the card that my card class made on Monday. Actually no two cards ended up the same as some used different sides of the dsp than I had. But they all looked great.
I have used Gingham Garden dsp for this card.
This is another card that I made using the same technique.
This time I have embossed over the dsp to give it a different effect. Graet technique. teh strips of paper only need to be 11/2" x 4" long then you cut them on the diagonal to get two pieces then  you arrange them  in either ways shown above. Great way to use up scraps of paper too.

I have had a busy week with doing casual work and then being a leader at a Brownie camp at the weekend .I haven't had much time to upload some of the cards I have made in the past few weeks.
This is a card that I cased off Christy Fulk here . I liked the way she used the new stamp set, Flower shop and the new in colours.Also she used some of the new ruffle stretch ribbon which only comes in the in colours.

Using Washi tape

This is another male card that we made at my last male card class. Actually it could be used as a feamale card too as one of my ladies was going to do. I have cased this from Diane Oaulette except have used different sentiments on it. A fun card to make with the gold embossing on it and the Washi tape. The grunge look of cards is the in look this season and I am enjoying using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set that we received at convention.
