Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge #27

Good afternoon, blogger friends!  Happy first day of fall!  Since it is the first day of fall, I'm posting the card I made for Joanna's Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge #27.  I had been wanting to try the starburst technique since I saw the challenge on The Friday Mashup!  last week, but I didn't make the deadline.  (I found a tutorial if anyone is interested.)

To make this card, I got out my embossing folders and used real red for the section in the middle and various shades of orange for the other sections.  My background is cajun craze.  I stamped the image from the Inspired by Stamping set, Delicate Doilies II and added a rose and some crocheted lace  from the Inspired by Stamping store. My sentiment comes from SU's Petite Pairs.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I love reading your comments.


  1. Wow! A gorgeous fall card with beautiful emblossing and beautiful colors! Sweet flower and lovely lace, too! Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I am always wowed by the starburst technique. It looks so tricky! Yours has extra pizzazz, Carol, with the different embossing on each ray. Beautiful!

    I'm so glad you came to play with us at Inspired By Stamping this week!
