My first card uses the Sunflower Bouquet clear stamp set. I started by stamping the main sunflower stamp onto heavyweight cardstock with Vanilla Cupcake Ink for some no-line coloring with copic markers and polychromos pencils. The image was trimmed and fussy cut on the right side. I matted the panel with some blue cardstock and mounted it onto some fun foam. The background was made by mixing Cali Blue Ink with some water and brushing the stripes on with a wide paint brush. The “Many Thanks” sentiment is also from the Sunflower Bouquet set…it was stamped in Aspen Cocoa Ink onto the background panel and lightly shadowed with a copic marker. I also stamped the butterfly from the Beautiful Butterflies 3 set with Vanilla Cupcake Ink and colored with copics and pencils, then die-cut the image and fun foam with the Coordinating Die. All that was left was to adhere all the pieces together. I wrapped some twine around the card panel and finished with some sequins from The Belle’s Dress Mix to accent the sentiment and some Clear Dew Drops to the sunflowers.
The second card features the Sunflower Garden Cling Stamp. This is a 6″x6″ cling stamp that is beautiful on it’s own!! I stamped the image onto Bristol paper with clear embossing ink and heat set it with the oh, so beautiful Rose Gold Embossing Powder. The center of one of the sunflowers just begged to be cut out and made into a shaker card, so I meticulously cut out the center with a craft knife. I added a piece of acetate to the embossed, die cut (Double Stitched Rectangle Dies – Small) panel before adding a combination of the Guava Sparkle Mix & Coral Necklace for the shaker. I mounted the panel onto foam adhesive and attached to a larger panel in which I used clear embossing ink to ink the edges and also embossed with the Rose Gold Embossing Powder. The panel was embellished with a tulle bow and a tag with the “So Very Happy For You” sentiment from the clear set & adhered to a top-folding note card. I added a few sequins to the tag to finish off the card.
