Hi there!  I hope you’re having a great start to your weekend!  Today I have a SUPER fun project to share with you using LOTS of new goodies!!!  This card uses a stamp set from the upcoming Occasions Catalog, Starburst Sayings, as well as the matching Starburst Framelits Dies.  Of course, Stampin’ Up! is being amazing and offering bundles again so you can get the stamp set and framelits at a 15% discount.

I also used the same Designer Series Paper as my project yesterday – the new Sale-A-Bration offering, Sweet Sorbet DSP.  Starting January 31, 2014, you’ll be able to get this package of fantastic DSP for free with a $50 purchase!  Oh yay!  I also used the same twine too that is from the SAB Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack.  AND…a BRAND NEW Sale-A-Bration Decorative Dots embossing folder too!!!  Could this year’s Sale-A-Bration get any better?!?

I’m sure you also noticed my piece of 3″ x 4-1/2″ Core’dinations cardstock (can I even make a project without it?) that I cut the starburst shape out of using the 2nd smallest Starburst Framelits Die.  Then I embossed and then sanded with the Stampin’ Sanding Block to reveal that lighter inner core.  *TIP:  Remember to do all of your cutting with framelits or other dies before you emboss.  Otherwise the embossing will be flattened because of running the embossed piece through the machine without its folder.  I then glued it down with the Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to a piece of 3-1/4″ x 4-3/4″ Basic Black Cardstock.  A 3/4″ x 4-3/4″ strip of my favorite pattern from the Sweet Sorbet DSP is layered over the top.  I tied a bow of the Crisp Cantaloupe twine from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack over the top of the DSP and glued it down to the Whisper White Note Card base (they come pre-cut and pre-scored with matching envelopes…easy peasy!).

I stamped the “Thank You So Much” stamp in Crisp Cantaloupe ink onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock and used the matching framelit to cut it out (the smallest one).  *TIP:  I actually stamped this first and ran it through the Big Shot at the same time as the Core’dinations piece with the 2nd smallest framelit.  I try to always run all of my framelits for one project through at the same time if possible to save time!  Super easy, especially with the Magnetic Platform to hold each piece in place.  I layered that onto a circle of Gold Foil Sheet punched out with the 1-3/8″ Circle Punch.  Finally, I cut a Stampin’ Dimensional in half and put one half on the top and one half on the bottom then stuck it onto the card!  *TIP:  Placing your dimensionals so they adhere straight to the card (not the twine) will insure that everything lays flat.  If the dimensionals were on top of the twine, then the focal point may bow around the twine a bit.  Not too big of a deal, but just a little idea to add that extra professional look to your projects.
