Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Welcome Card

We have a new color challenge for you this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments and I was so inspired by them!

Be sure to play along with us this week!

My card starts off with Mint Macaron cardstock.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Cinnamon Cider cardstock.

You really can’t tell in the picture (and barely in person) but I did stamp the smaller sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set on the Whisper White in Versamark ink.

I then took a pattern from the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I stamped the sunflower and leaves from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in Stazon ink on Watercolor Paper.  I used a Water Painter to color them in using Cinnamon Cider, Mint Macaron, and Crumb Cake ink.  I cut them out using the coordinating Sunflower Dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Well Said Stamp Set in Crumb Cake ink and cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies.

Stampin’ Up! Spotlight Technique Celebrate Sunflowers Card

For today’s card I used the Spotlight Technique with the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set.

It’s super easy but has a really cool effect.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set on it in Memento Black ink.

TIP:  When stamping, I used the Stamparatus.  This allowed for exact placement when stamping on the card front, as well as stamping on the triangles.

I then cut out three triangles using the Stitched Triangles Dies.  I stamped the same sunflower image on them in Memento Black ink.  I colored the images using the Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered them over the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Well Said Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Cajun Craze cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I used a special technique to make the die fit the sentiment.

To see how you can adjust the die to make it fit a smaller (or larger) sentiment, you can check out this video (go to about 10 mins in).

Next to the one triangle, I added a couple of Cinnamon Cider Enamel Dots.

Thanks for checking out my project today!
Be sure to swing by my store to grab the makings so you can make it as well.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Blank Card

Sunflowers and plaid…yes please!!

Looking at this card, I can almost feel fall in the air….well, that is if it wasn’t still hotter than anything out there.

My card starts off with Cajun Craze cardstock.  I then adhered over it a plaid pattern from the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper.  I then matted a pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper on Cajun Craze cardstock.

I stamped the sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  I colored it in using Mango Melody and Pumpkin Pin (sunflower), Old Olive (leaves), Soft Suede (center) Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut it out with the coordinating Sunflowers Dies.

I used the same dies to cut out sprigs from Pretty Peacock cardstock and leaves from Old Olive cardstock.  Underneath the flower I wound around some Gold Thread and adhered it over a Gold Hoop.

I couldn’t decide where to place the sentiment, so I ended up leaving the front blank and just adding a thank you sentiment to the inside.

Thanks for checking out my project today!

Stampin’ Up! Spritzed Celebrate Sunflowers Card

I tend to create literally.

Meaning if there’s an animal, I color it the way it actually looks, or if there’s a flower, use colors of real flowers.

It is, however, nice to try something new and that’s what I’ve done today using a spritzer and the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set.

My card starts off with Magenta Madness cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

I took the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set and applied Magenta Madness ink and Mango Melody ink using a Sponge Dauber.  I then sprayed water on the sunflower using a Spritzer and stamped it on Whisper White panel.

I did the same thing with the leaf image using Granny Apple Green ink and Old Olive ink.  I then added a Magenta Madness bow next to the sentiment.

I also wanted to try the same coloring but without the spritzed water and this was the result:

Let me know which one you like more.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Mini Cards

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

I’ve seen other demos use the new Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set and stamp on multiple colors at once.  I loved the look so decided to make a very simple square card doing the same.

My card starts off with Old Olive cardstock.

I then cut out 2″ squares from Bumblebee, Old Olive, and Early Espresso ink.  I matted them on a panel of Gold Foil and stamped the sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set on it in Early Espresso ink.

I used some Linen Thread to tie a bow around the card.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the To A Wild Rose Stamp Set in Early Espresso ink and fussy cut it out.  I adhered it down with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wanted to keep with the same idea but cut up the cardstock panels a little differently.  This time I matted them on Whisper White cardstock and wound around the Linen Thread under the sentiment.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! NEW Celebrate Sunflowers Celebrate You Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

This past weekend I went to Facebook to get help for today’s card.  I knew I wanted to use the NEW In Good Taste Designer Series Paper but I wasn’t sure whether to go with the light or dark shade wood.

Well, here’s the final product:

My card starts off with So Saffron cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and matted it on Mango Melody cardstock.

This Designer Series Paper is included in my Product Share, so be sure to check out all the details here.

I then stamped the sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in Mango Melody ink on So Saffron cardstock.  I cut it out and a Mango Melody sunflower outline using the Sunflowers Dies.

I stamped the leaves in Old Olive ink on Old Olive cardstock and then cut them out, as well as leaf outlines from Old Olive cardstock to adhere over them.  I adhered the leaves under the flower and then adhered everything down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers in Old Olive ink.  I cut out the “let’s” and then fussy cut the “celebrate you.”  I wound around some Linen Thread under the sentiment and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! NEW Celebrate Sunflowers Thanks Card

Today I’m using another brand new bundle from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog…the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.

It will be available beginning June 3rd.

Be sure to head over to my Facebook page once you’ve received your catalog.  Look for my selfie with my catalog and post a selfie of you with yours in the comments.  I’ll do a random giveaway!

My card starts off with the new Cinnamon Cider cardstock.  This is a new 2020-2022 In Color and it’s beautiful!  I then wrapped around some Very Vanilla ribbon from the Forever Greenery pack in the corner.

I matted a Cinnamon Cider pattern from the 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper on Whisper White cardstock.  I then layered over the Very Vanilla ribbon a piece of Cinnamon Cider ribbon.  Above the DSP, I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I stamped the sunflower and leaves from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  I colored them in using Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody (sunflower), Soft Suede (center of flower), and Old Olive (leaves) Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut them out, as well as a few leaf outlines using the coordinating Sunflowers Dies.

I adhered the flower down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!
