Hiya Sweeties! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Recently the Authentique team paired up with Sweet Stamp Shop for a week of fun and inspiration, and today I’m here to share my project, a fun and colorful card using Authentique’s Be(You)tiful collection, and Sweet Stamp Shop stamps.
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 a sun. I had been dying to try the fun sunburst technique that is so popular these days, and this seemed the perfect opportunity. So I pulled out all the warm yellow and orange tones of the Be(You)tiful collection papers to create a bright and happy all-occasion card in this fun sunburst pattern.
The color wheel was stamped on water color paper and lightly colored to match the papers. I die cut the image with my Sizzix zig zag circle dies, and added a good and liberal messy coating of gold embossing powder. Stamped the sentiment on vellum to add to the bottom corner. Isn’t it so fun to see old trends come back in vogue?
If you’re not familiar with the sunburst technique, I’ve got the complete step by steps up on the Authentique blog. And thanks so much for stopping by! Hope your weeks are off to a great start. Mine is going to be fabulous, I can just tell. I’m giddy already. This guy right here is coming home this week!!
