Shining Stars for Every Occasion
SUNDAY, APRIL 19, 2015
Hello Members and friends. Today I have a fun project for you using several new dies and stamps from Taylored Expressions. For these fun cards (inspired by Taylor Van Bruggen) I am using two large dies: Ray of Sunshine and Shining Star which were designed to work together, and the new Shining Star sentiments stamp set. You can easily make multiple cards at once following the simple steps listed below.
Cut Shining Star die from white cardstock for the cover of the cards.
Die cut Walking on Sunshine from a variety of colored cardstocks to get the inner pieces and the outline.
Put a little wet glue on the center ring of one of the Walking on Sunshine outlines and adhere it lightly to the center of a white folded A2 card.
Glue inner pieces into the outline alternating colors. Once all rays are filled, remove the outline.
Adhere the Shining Star die over the colored rays with foam tape.
Punch or die cut circle (1½”) from white cardstock and a mat (1”) from colored cardstock and stamp sentiment of your choice.
Decorate with various dies like graduation cap, stars, party hat or balloons.
This past weekend I had dinner with a friend to celebrate her birthday. She has never disclosed her age to friends, family or even strangers so trying to figure out her age has been a running joke. When I saw the Technique Tuesday Umpteenth Birthday clear stamp set I knew it was perfect for making her birthday card. Here's the card I made for her:
