May Stamp of the Month Bloghop

Welcome as you have arrived from Kathleen's Blog
I am sure you have been blessed with many ideas for this stamp set.
 I chose to make Sunburst cards using these stamps and our 
Taste Of Summer papers available only in May.
Let me show you how to make a Sunburst card!
Cut three pieces of paper or cardstock to a 4 x 5 1/4 inch size.
Here I used some of the orange paper from Taste of Summer and it's opposite side
along with Topiary cardstock.
Stack the three sheets on top of each other and make cuts through all three pieces
that end at one point (at the bottom here).
Separate the paper pieces and arrange them so they will fit on a piece of cardstock
4 x 5 1/4.  Glue them into place.  You may either leave a narrow space between pieces as 
shown in the lemon cards at the top, or glue all pieces next to each other.
If you leave a space, you will need to trim pieces since they will hang over the edge
of the 4 x 5 1/4 base.
Mount on a standard card base  (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded in half) and you will have
a border around the edge.  
The other papers in Taste of Summer have strawberries with a pink reverse side,
lemons with a yellow side, limes with a flowered side and a 
variety fruit page with a dark pink reverse. Be watching for the posts about 
Taste of Summer.
Now hop on over to  Jeanie Burch's Blog  
for more inspiration you will enjoy.
