Challenge Title: Bursting with Hope
Hostess: PH in VA (Patricia)
Keyword: HYCCT1315A
Date: Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Hi there! Welcome to the fourth annual Hope You Can Cling To challenge and card drive! We're so glad you are here with us. We are excited for your cards to start arriving at MD Anderson Cancer Center to brighten the lives of many people.

I don't know anyone who doesn't hope that a cure for cancer will be found some day soon. Our challenge drive aspires to give the patients at MD Anderson hope that they will beat this horrid disease. Many of us HYCCT hostesses here are so full of hope we're about to burst, LOL! So I thought it would be fun to create cards for this challenge using a starburst design.

Your starburst should be created from either cardstock or patterned paper, and NOT be a stamped image. For your card, you may choose to follow the Starburst Technique tutorial linked below, you may freehand cut your starburst rays, or if you have a die that will cut the starburst shape you may use that! Some people call it a "sunburst" instead of a "starburst" and that's OK. If you'd like to use pink in your starburst you definitely may, but pink is not a requirement.

We would like for them to receive cards throughout the month of October, but we understand if you'd like to mail all your cards at once.
5. Since these cards will be used by visitors for patients, most should be blank inside, but feel free to send cards with messages of hope for the patients in addition to your challenge cards!

Please note - because MD Anderson is part of the State of Texas, they ask that no religious sentiments be used on cards sent to the Cancer Center.

Thank you to my fabulous sample makers - Sabrina, Lydia, Patty, Kathy, and Dina!

Now it's your turn - show us what you can create with your cardstock and patterned papers to let us know that you are bursting with hope!

Good morning, everyone! I'll be around throughout the rest of HYCCT to answer any questions you might have about this challenge. I'm looking forward to seeing what y'all create! :D

Have always wanted to try one with dp (I've done Washi tape and a stenciled sunburst before). Thanks for the tutorial. After my walk and some school I hope to get at this!

CAKath 10-15-2013 05:20 AM

I really had fun creating this. Hope everyone is able to give this a try.

Washi tape? Do you have a link to that, just to satisfy my curiosity about it?

:D That's why they are called "challenges" - to get us to stretch our creativity!

It's fun seeing how different people are challenged by different things. Using loads of glitter and bling is not my style so I always have difficulty with challenges that call for that. Especially glitter. Loose glitter = shudder. LOL

But all our differences in preferences - in styles, images, colors, embellishments, techniques, etc. - are what makes the gallery here so fun and enjoyable. It would be pretty boring if everyone's cards looked *exactly* alike, ya know?

There is a tutorial linked to the first post in this thread! :)

There are two attachments for it - one is a Word document and one is in Adobe PDF format. They're below the thumbnail images of the samples for the challenge.

kramomma 10-15-2013 07:58 AM

This is the video I watched...SunBurst - YouTube


Forgot the my daughter gives piano lessons this morning so I was banned to the basement for 90 minutes! Finished this card... :grin:

Sorry I did not see those...I was looking in the main body of the post for directions.

patiak 10-15-2013 08:19 AM

Thanks for doing the tutorial Patricia, looks like a fun technique! I like the papers you used, cute card! I hope to start playing here in the next few days... :)

T. Joy 10-15-2013 08:22 AM

Here's mine! I turned my sunburst upside down and made it into a rug... :)

I'm sorry you missed it and had to go off site for instructions, too.

If I'd put the instructions in the challenge post, the post would have been GINORMOUSLY long! So that's why I did the tutorial attached the post, and referenced in the third paragraph of the post.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you create! :)

ohmypaper! 10-15-2013 08:36 AM

Patricia, thanks so much for this fun challenge! I have not tried this technique before, I always thought it looked too difficult but it was easy peasy and fun too!

Just Because

I'm learning...but it's been fun learning...now I will know to look at the post after the samples...I didn't know it was "important" information!!!


It was fun to make...next time I will try double-sided paper to get 6 designs...I had wanted to learn how to make one for a long time...and DTGD provided the push I needed...but I had already forgotten what I had learned! :roll:

It doesn't matter whether you used the video you shared, or the tutorial I created. So long as you've used DP or cardstock to create the rays, you're good. :)

PH in VA 10-15-2013 09:23 AM

I guess I should link the sample cards I made.

Here's the one that goes with the tutorial: HYCCT1315A - sweet starburst

And here's another one with a different style of starburst: HYCCT1315A - bursting with thanks

octoberbabe 10-15-2013 09:45 AM

UH OH!!!!!!!!!! I think I goofed here. I now see that the starburst was to be made of cs or dp.............and I used washi tape. Well this is my card anyway:
