I seem to be on a Sunflower kick. Here's another Sunflower-themed greeting card.   It's easy with so many Sunflower-themed stamp set in the Stampin' Up! product line.  Today I used the Stampin' Up! Jar of Flowers Stamp Set.  One of the stamps includes this trio of sunny sunflowers, which I showcased using one of the dies cuts from Painted Labels Dies.  I used a color theme of Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive, along with a print from the Design a Daydream 12" X 12" Host Designer Series Paper Pack, and colored the Sunflowers using Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Blends. The sentiment is from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set, and I fussy cut it after stamping it in Pear Pizzazz ink on Basic White Cardstock.  I used the Sunflower Dies to cut a shock of Basic White foliage to add to the left of the Sunflowers.   I found that this stamp coordinates well with Sunflowers from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set, and I plan to create a family of Sunflower-themed cards using both stamp sets together.  This is one of the features I enjoy about Stampin' Up! products--they often work well together--allowing you to extend your creativity across stamp sets.  You'll enjoy creating cards that you'll feel proud to give family and friends, using the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!  
Floral greeting card using Stampin' Up! Jar of Flowers Stamp Set

This card uses a basecard of Pear Pizzazz.  Then a layer of Basic White dry embossed using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder, matted in Old Olive.  Then I used another, smaller piece of a print from the Design a Daydream Host 12" X 12" Paper Pack for a bit of added interest, and matted it in Old Olive.  I added a 1-1/4" wide band of Pear Pizzazz before beginning my image layer.

I used a circular die cut in Basic White as the base for my image layer.  Then I stamped the daisies images from the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set in Cajan Craze, and colored them with Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Blends.  I love the bleed from the Cajun Craze ink outline that adds a depth of color to the daisies.  Then I fussy cut the daisies and popped them up on Dimensionals before adding them to my image layer.  I also die cut some foliage from Basic White Cardstock using the Sunflowers Dies and added them along the side.  

Sunflowers Greeting card using Stampin' Up! Jar of Flowers Stamp Set

I tried a couple of different embellishments.  I used Brushed Brass Butterflies above the foliage.  And I used the Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots on the band.  I'm undecided if I should use both of if one or the other is enough.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set, fussy cut around the outside edges, and added it to my card front.
