Home-Made Star-Burst Cover-Plate- Winnie & Walter Talent In Residence


Hi there everyone! I’m so exited to have my very first post as Talent In Residence over on the Winnie & Walter blog.

Today I’m sharing with you a card that is inspired by Gayatri and this months In Focuswhere she created her own ‘cover plates’ with small border dies. I love the idea of creating my own cover plates and I thought it would be fun to create my own. I choose to used smaller dies too but I have used two of the star dies from ‘Big Bang Confetti Cutaways’.


To create this ‘cover plate’ I first cut the large star into place, I then drew out lines from the stars points with pencil and a circle around the star to line up the second smallest star. Once these five stars were cut I then cut the same star again in between the ones I had already cut. I then drew another circle around these, I used this circle and the lines from the centre star to line up the last ring of stars.


When I was finished all of the die cutting I used a marker spritzer and some Copic markers to create a night sky effect. I also added in some silver splatters using a silver Gelato and stippling brush. Once this piece was dry I cut it out using the large layer die from Essentials: Katharine Cutaways and added some silver craft metal behind the cut out stars.


To finish the card I stamped a sentiment using ‘True‘ and ‘My Precious‘ onto a vellum strip and embossed in silver glitter embossing powder.

I would really love to know what you think of my card! Please leave me a comment, maybe even subscribe to my YouTube channel or follow my blog :) If your interested I’m also onFacebook and I share sneak peeks of my projects (and my life) on Instagram.

I hope you have a beautiful day and I will see you again soon.

Hugs Lydia xxx
