Your Next Stamp Circle Burst

Hello everyone.

Today I get to play with another NEW stamp set from the Your Next Stamp September release. I have the Circle Burst stamp set, and although it's small in size, it is so versatile. These small sets with geometric shapes can be all sorts of things... fireworks like my project today, or simple geometric background images to livin' up a clean and simple card- I can simply find a ton of uses for these.

For my project, I made my Circle Bursts into fireworks. I started with a piece of Stampin' Up!'s Seaside Spray cardstock cut down to 3 1/2 by 4 3/4 inches. I loaded the three-circle burst images onto the door of my Original MISTI, and arranged them to stamp on the blue panel in a way that made them appear to be fireworks with the largest in the foremost front and the subsequent sizes behind it. I was trying for a little forced prospective. I stamped the largest of the images and the smallest image first with Nuvo Clear Mark embossing ink and using Nuvo Clear embossing powder to heat emboss them in place. This will help to retain the light blue color of the cardstock as I ink blend the background.

The third and final image was stamped with the same clear sticky ink, but this time I used Nuvo Classic Silver embossing powder to heat emboss it. Once I had all of the embossing done for the background I could then begin adding some ink to the edges.

I used my Nuvo Blender Brushes and Distress Oxide ink in Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot to darken up the night sky background. I added a considerable amount of ink, leaving the center relatively untouched so that pretty shade of light blue cardstock would remain visible.

Once all the ink was added I could then spray the sparkle on the background. I love doing this. The spray melts all the ink in the background together and makes the entire background shine. I used my Splat Box to protect my work surface and added my three favorite shimmer sprays to the background. I used Hero Arts White Iridescent Shimmer Spray and Imagine Crafts Frost and Sparkle shimmer spritz.

After giving the panel a short time to dry completely, I wiped the embossing on the front panel with a damp cloth. I wanted the embossing to really stand out so I wiped away the excess ink from on top of the embossing, which really helps do that.

I then stamped the sentiment "birthday wishes" from the same Your Next Stamp Circle Burst stamp set onto more of that Stampin' Up! Seaside Spray cardstock with Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink. I again used the Classic Silver embossing powder. To spruce up the sentiment a little, I added the same three shimmer sprays that I added to the background. After they dried completely I cut them down into small strips using my Fiskars Wire Guide Paper Trimmer.

I popped up the fireworks panel onto a Simon Says Stamp fog card base cut to size A2 and scored in a top folding portrait orientation. I did this using gray craft foam and Craft Perfect 1/2 inch tear tape adhesive. As for the sentiment strips, they are adhered using Craft Perfect Foam Squares.

To finish off the fireworks, I added a series of gray enamel dots to the center of each one. I used Your Next Stamp Gumdrops in "summer chill".

I hope you enjoyed my card project today using the NEW Your Next Stamp Circle Burst Stamp Set. To see the entire NEW release and to see more inspiration (CLICK HERE!) to visit the Your Next Stamp Blog and Online Shop.
