Starburst technique for our November Hostess Club:
This stamp set works well if you are wanting to work with your Blendability markers. I used the designer paper Sweet Taffy for the starburst background. We will be making this in my November Hostess clubs.
At class this past Saturday I had my five cards ready for my stampers, however, I had started playing with the stamp set Simply Sports, ( on page 92 of the annual catalog), and I could not stop with only one sporty card! So, the attendees made two additional cards!
I was requested to make a card for a teenage boy. So, my first thought was a sports card. I had purchased the Simply Sports stamp set a while ago, but, had not played with it yet. Once I started, I couldn’t stop!!
Here are the cards we made:A Milwaukee Brewers card. The first baseball card I made was in red and white. Dah, I live in Wisconsin!! What was I thinking? Then I thought: this is not going to fly, I know that June is a huge Brewers fan. How could I have her make a baseball card and not use Brewer colors. So, back to the drawing board and this is the card I came up with!
Next in line is my favorite sport to watch on Sundays, a Packer card. (Sorry Packers, tonight did not go so well for you, but, you get a buy week and then you’ll be back and ready to win!I used some of our newest cardstock from the Holiday catalog on the front of this card. It’s on page 5, Under the Tree Specialty Designer Series Paper. I was not sure what to put on the crushed curry side but then settled on the goal posts.
Soccer is next up. My three oldest grandsons play soccer and I’m sorry to say that I only got to see them play once this past season. Even with my limited knowledge of the game I hooted and hollered with the rest of the stands and thoroughly enjoyed watching them play. I used pacific point cardstock for the accent color. The black and white designer paper is from the Back to Black collection. The Hexagon Hive thinlit worked well for an interesting background on the right side of the card.
I used our circle card thinlit on each of the cards. I know that $32.95 is a lot of money for that particular thinlit, but, check out all the additional pieces at come with it! The chevron die worked perfectly on the baseball for the stitching. These thinlits are an easy way to make an impressive card. Admit it, who doesn’t like getting a card with moving parts!
Well, closing for now. Hope you enjoyed today’s cards.
