Creating cards with the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers

Today I'm using the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set again.  I'm really surprised at how much I love this stamp set.  Stampin' Up! has had a number of sunflower stamp sets over the years, but this one captured my heart like no other Sunflower stamp set has before.  This is such a simple card, but I love how it turned out.  I saw this technique on one of Linda Delke's cards, and watched a video she posted on how to create this look.  It was easier than I though it would be!   I added a couple of Whisper White butterflies from the Butterfly Beauty Dies to dress up the card a bit.  I love Stamping' up bundles!  The Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set coordinates with the Sunflowers Dies.  This is one of the two bundles that are part of the Flowers for Every Season Suite.  Bundles help me create fantastic projects with less effort. And a product suites provides an array of coordinated products that work together for easy creating. .          

The basecard for this card is Thick Whisper White.  Then a layer of Misty Moonlight Cardstock, one of the new In Colors.   The images from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set were stamped on the Misty Moonlight Cardstock using Misty Moonlight ink. 

The technique for highlighting the sunflower petals with white is done by painting the petals lightly with Craft Whisper White ink applied using a Blender Pen.  I found that spreading the ink onto a clear block first allowed me to control ink coverage better.  One other tip I'll pass on to you:  The Whisper White ink fades as it dries  I thought I was adding the Whisper White Ink too heavily when I was painting the petals, however, looking at my finished card, I wish I had added more Craft Whisper White.  I'll know next time I try this technique.

For the sentiment, I used the stitched rectangle from the Ornate Layers Dies and cut a label out of Whisper White.  Each of the sentiments are also from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set, and the sentiments are stamped in Misty Moonlight Ink.  I found these two butterflies near my die cutting machine and decided to use them as quick accents on these cards.  They are created by cutting apart a couple of the Butterfly Beauty Die Cuts.  I also added one of the Misty Moonlight Enamel Dots to each of the sentiments.   You'll want to look closely at the entire Flowers For Every Season Suite Collection on pages 10-13 of the Stampin' Up! annual catalog.  You'll love creating projects with this suite, and your friends and family will enjoy feeling special when they receive one of your lovely, handmade cards.  Add this suite to your Shopping List today.
