VIDEO: How to make a Sponged Starburst Christmas Card

oh come all ye faithful-stmapin up christmas cardToday’s amazing Christmas card technique video features a few different techniques: sponged starburst technique, masking and eliminating objects from a stamp. I’ll also show you a tip on how to fix these solid images when they don’t stamp a clean image.

I love everything about this card. This represents the true “Reason for the Season” to me, and may have just moved into my new “fav” Christmas card spot. Card design inspired by Michelle Zindorf.

Highlighting Stampin Up Grid Paper pads for this t130148Sechnique. Some of it’s many uses are that it protects your craft area from “ink pad accidents” (as demonstrator by my clutzy hands), it’s great for measuring, lining up and test stamping. Also for a quick stamp clean when you’re in a hurry lol. What do you use Grip Paper for?
