Wishing you all a happy Monday and lots of love!
Here it is! The one I’ve been waiting for. I’ve been waiting to get my hands on this gorgeous sunflower and have some fun with it.
The Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle featured in the Annual Catalog is beautiful! Trust me on this one, you could just stamp the large sunflower image and not give it a bit of color or crop; that’s how beautifully detailed the stamp is. For today’s project though, I colored and cropped.
I used only ink and a Blender Pen to color in this image. The Markers and Blends are great, but for me the Blender Pen and a little ink puddle work. The stamped image is so detailed that all I did was follow the lines of the image with color and blended just a little. It was that easy! The striking Fall color palette is Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow and Crushed Curry. The images and sentiment were stamped with Soft Suede.
I cropped both the sunflower and leaves with the matching Sunflowers Dies, added a few Stampin’ Dimensionals to both and stamped my sentiment to a Very Vanilla and Cajun Craze layered card base. Oh, and don’t forget to give your envelope a little lift with the Envelopes Dies. I lined the envelope for this card with some Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper. Quick and easy!
So grab a beautiful sunflower stamp, blend in some color, pop it up on a few Dimensionals and create something amazing!
The only limitation is your imagination!
