Starburst card making technique - Flower and Field DSP

totally techniques blog hop logo

Welcome and Happy Christmas to everyone visiting our last Totally Techniques Blog Hop.  This month we are sharing cards using the Starburst Technique as chosen by Kelly Acheson our USA demo representative.  It's a new technique to me and I've enjoyed tinkering with this technique that is much simpler than it looks.

I'm excited to share my card as I've used some new designer series papers (DSP) called Flower and Field that will be a free gift in our annual Saleabration Event starting on the 5th January which is also the launch of our new Spring mini catalogue.  Inspired by my good friend Audra Monk who used the paper to create a card with the medium daisy punch I've followed her lead and used the same materials, but as a starburst.  

For my version I started with 4 strips of DSP that were each cut at 10 x 4 cm and cut diagonally as shown below.

Starting in the middle of a piece of card stock 10 cm x 14.3cm I spaced the papers flipping them alternately to cover the white card with thin gaps between ensuring all edges and corners were covered.

This is how it will look once they are all stuck onto the card.

I cut off the excess paper around the edges and also then cut the remaining piece to 9.5cm x 13.8cm before adding to a black matt layer. You need to make sure glue is dry before using a trimmer to cut off the excess or use a pair of scissors.

The final addition is a piece of white card and a punched daisy to which I added some Pool Party ink with a blending brush and used the small daisy stamp from the Daisy Lane stamp set to add a flower centre in So Saffron.

I also added a simply stamped sentiment from the Daisy Lane set which I die cut with one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies.
