LDRS Creative Halloween Party Blog Hop


Hello everyone!

Welcome to the first edition of the HALLOWEEN PARTY BLOG HOP by LDRS Creative!

The design team has prepared some WICKED inspiration using the latest seasonal products in store, including them in super-duper fun tutorials at each stop. 

We are so EXCITED to celebrate this special day with you all, that we have decided to offer a 31% DISCOUNT on all Halloween and Fall products in store (*excluding bundles, using code Wicked31, valid until October 31st, MIDNIGHT EST).
 

And because there is no party without PRIZES....Who would like to win surprise grab bag of LDRS Creative products worth at least $30? We will draw 3 winners throughout the day (Oct. 31st, EST) on our Facebook group, so make sure to join it HERE.

For my personal project I have created this simple star burst card technique with the Polkadoodles Wicked Halloween paper pack. I have also colored up Winnie Broomstick to show off in front of the Sunburst of Halloween fun!


here is a simple step by step photo tutorial to help you create your own starburst card.

Step 1: Simply cut 2x6" strips om your favorite Halloween papers.


Step 2: Using your trimmer line up the 2" strips on the diagonal. You will just be using one set of these halves. Might as well make 2 cards while your creating.


Step 3: All of your papers should look like this.
You will just be using one set of these halves. Might as well make 2 cards while your creating.


Step 4: Begin in the center and glue the pieces leaving about a 1/8" gap in between. You can also glue them butted up together if you would like. Just depends on the look you are going after.

Step 5: Continue gluing, alternating the patterns.

Step 6: on the last two pieces I turned them upside down to help cover the entire card base.



Step 7: Lastly flip the card over and trim along the card base edges.

Winnie Broomstick is colored with Alcohol markers and is fussy cut and popped up on the card front. 


Here is one last look at a few of the products I have used in this design. 



Make sure to hop around, leave a comment at each stop, and answer the mysterious questions (haha!) on the first stop. 

Here's the list and keep hoping:

And remember to use that discount code before it turns into a pumpkin at MIDNIGHT! ;-)
Thank you for stopping by and Happy Hopping! Melanie

  1. Love this idea, it turned out so cute. I will have to try it out. For Question #1, I picked Winnie Broomstick. Question #2, This one was tough since I like all those colors, but if I have to pick, then Blk/Orange. Question #3, the Punkin One.

  7. Question 1-Dracula
    Question 2-both! Orange/black and Purple/green
    Question 3-Punkin one is more Halloween to me, but I love the Apple because it reminds me of the poison apple from snow white and I'm a huge fan!

  10. Your card turned out wonderfully, I have not tried creating a starburst card but it looks like a fun technique thank you for walking us through it. I must say the Wiked paper collection has such beaten patterns and colors that blend so well that really makes the starburst effect on the card come together nicely.. and how can I forget the gorgeous Winnie Broomstick I love how she is the focal point of your card great coloring and fussy cutting 😊
