Hello friends and happy Friday! I hope you are looking forward to the weekend ahead. Forward to what exactly, I'm not sure?! Forward to being home? Forward to yet another Netflix movie? Forward to a change of pajamas!? Today starts my next shift week "off" from work, so if you're not happy, I'm happy enough for all of us!
Continuing on with the theme of sunflowers, today I have two more ways to use this beautiful large Sunflower Background stamp from Whimsy Stamps. If you missed yesterday's post, please click here to see that rainbow card. Or, last month's post when I created vibrant alcohol ink backgrounds and vellum sunflowers, pleaseclick here. There are just so many ways you can use this beautiful stamp.
*A full supply list is located at the end of this post.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White cardstock. Using the Gina Marie Scalloped Stitched Nesting rectangle dies, I cut a piece of bluecardstock. On top of the scalloped frame, I mounted a pre-made piece of an alcohol ink background in blues and greens. Using Versamark ink, I stamped the sentiment (from the "So Deeply Sorry" stamp set by Whimsy Stamps) in the lower left corner and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. I stamped the large sunflower on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock in blue ink and then fussy cut the sunflower out. I adhered the sunflower to the card (cutting off a portion of the right side) using 3M foam adhesive. Lastly, I die cut two leaves from a blue glitter cardstock and adhered them to the card for added sparkle.
Here is the second card I created for today still using the Sunflower Background stamp:
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar Crest cardstock. I used a pre-made alcohol ink background for the base of this card in yellows, oranges and golds. I stamped the large sunflower in amber ink on a separate piece of white cardstock and fussy cut the entire sunflower out. I adhered the sunflower to the center of the card using 3M foam adhesive. I die cut two leaves from gold glitter paper and adhered those to each corner for added sparkle. Lastly, on a thin strip of white cardstock, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I notched both ends before adhering it over the lower portion of the sunflower.
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!
