Today, I’m sharing a bunch of sunflower thanks for Ann’s color challenge over at The Paper Players.
Ann chose a warm, seasonal color palette in Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow and Cinnamon Cider. The colors really do make you want to sit back with a cup of warm cider. When I saw Ann’s colors, I immediately thought about using Stampin’ Up!’s Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle. I knew it would work well with these colors.
Apple cider was on my mind, so I chose to use Cinnamon Cider card stock as my card base. Its a wonder how my thoughts translate to card stock!! I’m a big fan of Mossy Meadow, so I chose that for my first card layer. I knew I would have to carry that color through the card design to keep some color balance and I did just that. I used the large sunflower framelit to crop my focal point anchor and added cropped leaf stems, both from the Sunflowers Dies and both with Mossy Meadow card stock.
I stamped three of the smaller sunflowers from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set using Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Cinnamon Cider ink and cropped them with the matching die.
My sentiment banner is simple. I wanted to keep the banner subtle because the sentiment font is mixed and striking. I thought it worked well with the lacey sunflower. That little gold metallic pearl adds a clean finishing touch.
Thank you Ann, for your warm and inviting color inspiration this week.
So, grab your Celebrate Sunflowers bundle, stamp, crop, layer, and create something warm and thankful.
The only limitation is your imagination!
