Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set

Today I made a card that twinkles like Christmas.  In fact, I'm going to place an order for some more Brass Foil Sheets after seeing how beautiful and festive the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder works with this foil.  Today I'm creating a Sunflower using Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set and the coordinating Sunflowers Dies.  I love the way the Sunflower dances on the gleaming diamonds.  This is one of those cards you need to see in person to appreciate.  I used the new Lovely Labels Pick A Punch to create the label for the sentiment.  I couldn't decide if the 1/4" Bumblebee Gingham Trim looked best on this card or the Early Espresso 1/4" Faux Sued Trim, so I make one card with each.  I'm enjoying this set more than I ever thought I would.             

The basecard for this card is Early Espresso.  Then a layer of Brass Foil Sheets dry embossed with the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.      

The large Sunflower was stamped  in Saddle Brown Stazon Ink onto Bumblebee Cardstock and die cut using the Sunflowers Dies.  The layered sunflower frame was die cut out of Brass Foil Sheet.  A quick tip to conserve on Brass Foil Sheets:  Die cut the sunflower frame out of the same foil sheet used as your background layer.  Your Bumblebee Sunflower die cut will fit back into the die cut whole perfectly and you will use less Brass Foil Sheets.            

To add dimension to the Bumblebee die cut, I colored it with Mango Melody Blends and added Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends Marker for highlights.  I added Cinnamon Cider Stampin Blends in the center of the Sunflower.  The Brass Foil Sunflower Frame was added with glue in the center, and I left the edges lose.   

I used a sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set.  I stamped it in Cinnamon Cider Ink and then used the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch to create a sentiment shape that fit perfectly on my card.  This punch will punch 6 different style and size labels, making it a must-have purchase from the annual catalog.   This card surprised me so much.  I didn't think I would love the Brass Foil Sheets and the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder as much as I do.  You'll create stunning cards with just a few stamped images, a bit of ribbon and an embossing folder, and your friends and family will feel so special when they receive one of your lovely, charming, handmade cards.

  1. Donna, your card is absolutely stunning!! If I were not an SU demo already, I would have bought everything through you, but as it was, you inspired me to order the bundle, foil, ribbon, and markers to complete this card. I love it!! The only thing I couldn’t figure out how to do was the double ribbon, which looks great. Thanks so much for sharing! Becky

  2. Thanks for your comment on my daisy card, Becky.
