1001 CARTES ON AIR - Sunburst/Starburst Technique

Hi! Today, I’m back with a new card and video tutorial featuring the Create A Smile stamp set called Ausflippen (it’s a German sentiment set). I used the star ("Hurra!" means Hoorah! in German).

Do you know the sunburst (or starburst) technique? This is what I’m going to show you in my video today. Here is my card: 

You can see how I did my card in the video below!



Stamps: Ausflippen (Create A Smile)
Paper: black & multi-color cardstock (Bazzill)
Dies: Stitched Circles (Lil’Inker Designs), Circles – Grand Nestabilities (Spellbinders)
Various: 3D foam pads, MISTI tool, tape runner, Archival Ink (Ranger)


You can fix the triangles randomly, as I did. This gives more movement. But if you want a perfect and straight alignment, the trick is to line up the triangles back to back:

Don’t forget that you can share your Create A Smile creations with us! Upload them on the Create A Smile blog, right in the sidebar. 

Have a wonderful day…
