A Quilted Sunburst

Happy New Year!  I hope you’re enjoying your 2016 so far.  We have had a relaxing and fun two weeks of vacation at our house, and are a little sad that we had to go back to the real world today.  The kids still have one last day of vacation today, but they go back to school tomorrow.

I got to play with some of the new Occasions catalog goodies the past couple of days.  One that I was eager to break out was the Sunburst Thinlits die.  It reminded me a little of an old quilt pattern of my grandmother, who made many, many beautiful quilts during her lifetime, so I went in that direction for my first card with this die.

Quilted SunburstI used some of the pretty papers from the new Have a Cuppa Designer Series Paper Stack.  I love the colors and cheery patterns in it.  I also used one sheet (the green one) from the Cherry on Top dsp stack.

I started by sponging on some Crushed Curry ink onto a Whisper White card base.  I then used the sunburst die to cut out a sheet of dsp in each of the colors.  I cut off each ray and then selectively placed them on the card base.

Quilted Sunburst Close UpThe sentiment comes from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set, and the sun stamp is from a new Project Life set called Memories in the Making.

All of these fun products will be available starting tomorrow!  A great way to start the new year!

Enjoy your Monday!  Thanks for stopping by!
