Hi everyone, it's Audrey, with a fun card to share with you today featuring the gorgeous Be(You)tiful collection and stamps from our product partner here on the blog this week, Sweet Stamp Shop.
I was sent the Color Wheel clear stamp set to play with, and the first thing I thought of when I saw the wheel was that it reminded me of a sun. Matched up with the warm yellow and orange tones of the Be(You)tiful collection, I created a bright and happy all-occasion card in a fun sunburst pattern that just may have you dreaming of sunny days to come.
To create the sunburst effect, I started by stamping the color wheel image in grey ink onto white cardstock, and then colored the image using a variety of sunny inks and a very wet paintbrush. Once the image was dry, I die cut the sun with a pinked circle die, and embossed the edge with gold embossing powder. Added the image onto my pieced background using foam adhesive for dimension. The sentiment was stamped on vellum and added to the bottom corner. Then more coats of gold embossing powder around all the edges.
Love how the pieced patterned papers carry out the sunburst theme, and it's actually quite easy to do. Here's a few quick steps.
Cut panels of patterned paper for the base of the card and for the second layer. Cut a panel of scrap cardstock slightly smaller than the second layer piece. Locate where you want the center of the sunburst to be, and draw a small mark there with a pencil.
Cut a variety of rectangles and strips from various patterned papers, and then trim each piece in half starting from the top right corner down to the bottom left corner, creating two triangles.
Place a bit of adhesive at the dot and also around the edge of the scrap cardstock panel. Then begin to place the triangles onto the panel, with all the points meeting at the pencil dot.
Here's what it will look like on the back. Continue adding triangles until the entire panel is covered.
Then trim off all the excess paper from the back side.
Add decorative machine stitching, if you wish, and your sunburst is done!
