Happy New Year!
by Jeanne Jachna

Starburst-Two
I hope you had a wonderful, merry, and happy Christmas yesterday.  I spent the day entertaining for family and friends.  It's lots of work but so nice to see everyone enjoy themselves and indulge - good food, conversation, and fun!  It doesn't have to end just yet!  Just think..  New Years is just a week away!!!
Starburst-Seven
I made this new years card with the Sparkle Burst Starts die.  I thought they looked like fireworks!  And WOW! are fireworks popular in Indiana - there are only two times of year that it's legal to light them here - July 4th and New Years.   So I know there will be some pretty lights in the sky next week!
Starburst-Three
All the little bits are inlaid on this card.  I know that's lots of work but it sure makes a clean and flat card.  I've got a few tips to share to make it easier and to show how I do it. 
Starburst
A precision tip glue applicator is a must.  I use Ranger Multi Matt Medium with a precision tip from Quilled Creations.   It provides great control allowing you to add very small amounts in the smallest of spaces.
Starburst-One
When I cut the die I try to leave as many pieces in the holes as possible.  Next I overlay the pieces I want to inlay over the cut out panel.  Using  a wood pic I just push the die cuts into the open holes underneath.  While the glue is still wet it's easy to push them into place.  The remaining pieces that were left behind on the cutting plate are also easy to pick up with the wood pic.  I  dab the wood pic on a wet sponge and the pieces stick easily.  
Starburst-Eight
This black card was really hard to photograph but the colors really pop against the dark background.  I love how flush and smooth the finished card looks.
Starburst-Four

One more tip.. a Swiffer dry cloth is great for picking up all those little bits of dust left behind from the die cutting.  I hope you'll give this a try!    And let's keep the party going another week!
