Starburst

Hi crafters!  The next set that I would like to showcase is the Starburst die set.  While I designed this for use with my angel in mind, I have found it looks amazing in so many other ways and not just for Christmas!  You can cut it into your card or out of it, your choice.  It makes a fabulous accent for anything you want to stand out on your card.  Use it on top of your pixie powder backgrounds as I have done here or cut it out of pixie powdered papers, it looks perfect either way!  If you like the look of this one and can see all the fun ways to use it, then just leave a comment on this blog post.  The next one will be online at 3pm today.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue

A lovely card. I can see how this die can be used in so many ways and not just for Christmas. Great for ‘big’ birthdays when numbers are used, or to put so many of your sentiment die cuts on too.

Love Helen xxx

Hi Sue, yes I can just see that die with the beautiful Angel but as you say, it can be used in many ways. Love Jean xxx

Craftcornucopia said...

I can see this one having so many uses, not necessarily for festive cards. I bet it will also look great as an embossed background, too.

Lovely :-)

stitchingranny said...

can see this having many uses and I like that its not too Christmassy. Although I love Christmas and love making the cards for it to buy Christmas dies that are used for such a short time always seems rather extravagant - especially when your wish list is as long as mine lol.

Hugs Sue and everyone else

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Sorry I haven't been around for a while, but I've finally my total knee replacement revision done and am finding it quite difficult at the moment, as it is so much more painful than my original op. So I apologise if I don't comment every day. I would hate to be thought of as someone who just comments for the ' freebies'!
Anyway, I love this die and can see it being so useful all year round. I do love it on the Pixie Powder background you've done.
Love and hugs to all, Alison ( craftyalimecca) xx

Arlyn(O) said...

Hello Sue, This is going to be a busy week. I love this die and ordered too. I see loads of potential. I also like the way you have used the side die on both the cards so far, more stained glass. I really enjoy doing these cards. Congratulations. A

Heather Treble said...

Hi Sue,
Love the card and it’s great to see how the die works on a card. I think it’s one of those designs we may not think we need and then realise that it’s very useful all year round.
Thanks for sharing,
Heather Treble

Elizabeth Louise said...

Looks like Sue’s used part of the border from the angel card....this is a dramatic backdrop for messages or other designs

Would like to see more samples using it.
