A Sunflower Card – So Loved!
When I finished this sunflower card I LITERALLY stepped back and said “Wow!”. I don't like to brag. It makes me feel squidgey and weird. But I do have to say, this card is GORGEOUS! AND I wish I could take credit for it! But I can't – it's all in the art of the stamp and the amazing, goof-proof results you can get from using Stampin' Blends. Ah…..my time on the pedestal was short lived – LOL!
Let's all just take a moment to gaze upon this beauty…..
Even looking at it now while I am typing this post, I just feel so happy! The bright colors, the simple background, the impact of that beautifully drawn sunflower……. And you know I love these sunflowers because I used them here and here and I have more projects popping in my head!
Truly, this was an almost embarrassingly easy card to create! Thanks to the images in this set, the only “work” you have to do is color. And you can even stick your tongue out when you do that if you want! I used my Stampin' Blends because I DO love the way you can just color over anything you don't like, dark or light color, because they are alcohol based, Here I used just Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody for the petals plus some green and brown for the center.
The sentiment is actually just a portion of a greeting from Ornate Thanks – I just colored it with a Stampin' Write marker, stamped on a scrap, die cut it out and popped it right on the card. I used, yes, a scrap of Bumblebee patterned paper and there you go – easy peasy and FAST! And because the flower is so bountifully big, I didn't feel like I needed to pop it up. But I wanted some overall “pop” so I put the whole panel on with dimensional adhesive and I really like how this sunflower card looks!

For orders over $150 placed through my store, don't use the hostess code, you will still get you free tutorials from me. Also, if you don't get your tutorials, make sure in your Stampin Up store profile that you haven't selected the option to not allow the demonstrator to contact you. If that is checked, even if you use the code, I can't see your name/email, nuttin' – so I don't know where to send your tutorials.
If you agree that this sunflower card is “save-worth” go ahead and pin it for a day when you need to make something with BIG impact in short time!
