Good Morning! Today I’m sharing another beautiful card made with the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers cling stamp set that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. Instead of using the wonderful dies, I just used the gorgeous large sunflower stamp and paired it with an ombre technique with some touches of gold. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:
I stamped three of the large sunflowers from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers cling stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. Using the sponge brayer, I colored the panel starting with Cajun Craze on the bottom and adding in Pumpkin Pie, Bumblebee and So Saffron inks. I colored the darkest colors on the bottom and the lightest color on top, overlapping the colors as I went. I also used the sponge brayer to add So Saffron ink to the Whisper White label. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso ink on the label. I adhered the label to the flower panel and adhered the panel to a gold foil mat.
I wrapped gold trim around the panel just above the label, making a bow, and finished the panel with three gold metallic pearls. I adhered the dark woodgrain In Good Taste designer series paper to the front of an early Espresso card base and popped the flower panel on top with dimensionals.
I stamped another sunflower from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso ink in the corner of a Whisper White panel. I added some Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Bumblebee ink with the sponge brayer and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The soft touches of gold with the dark wood grain give the card an elegant look, especially when paired with the beautiful sentiment!
