Social Stamping | Sunflowers

What a glorious morning! We had such a lovely time stamping at the Taste of Dalyellup cafe. I shared one of the card options yesterday – A Cut Above male themed card. You can see it by clicking here.

The other card option was a sunflower creation using the Celebrate Sunflower stamp set and Sunflower Dies. This gorgeous bundle can be found in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue. As each new mini gets released in the catalogue cycle, I find it’s so easy to forget about sets in the annual.

The colours for this card are Night of Navy, Cinnamon Cider, Bumblebee, Crumb Cake and Whisper White.

I experimented with adding some texture by ripping the DSP or cardstock. I love techniques like this that don’t require any special equipment.

I always try to offer two versions of a card for Social Stamping, or crafts are welcome to create their own! This is the alternative version in a different orientation.

The DSP is the Flowers for Every Season – it’s a lovely mix of patterns and florals that coordinate with a couple of sets in the annual catalogue, but generally works well for lots themes with the pretty colour combinations of the 2020-2022 In Colors (Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Misty Moonlight, Just Jade and Magenta Madness).

Thanks to the lovely ladies who come out and support Social Stamping. It’s such a pleasure to design cards for these sessions. And a huge thank you to the Taste of Dalyellup cafe. The ladies love their coffee and I love treating myself after class with their yummy sushi!

There’s no Social Stamping next Monday due to the Public Holiday, but we’ll see you the week after for more stamping!

Stamp Review Crew | Celebrate Sunflowers

Hello!  Thank for joining us for a Stamp Review Crew hop.  I’m going my friends from around the world as we share projects made using a featured stamp set.  Today it’s the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and coordinating Sunflowers Dies.

My projects for today use the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set together with the Swirly Frames stamp set.  The frames create a great border for the sweet sunflower images.

I first stamped the frame in Basic Gray ink and then used strips of copy paper to mask the edges of the frame and stamped the large sunflower in the middle using Bumblebee ink.

I then layered the framed sunflower with 2020-2022 In Colour DSP (Bumblebee), added a banner (made using the new Banners Pick A Punch).and a white on black heat embossed sentiment with a little fussy cutting.

The second card I made had the same features but used the smaller sunflower, a different layout and more of the 2020-2022 In Colours.

It was super difficult to capture in the photo, but I stamped one of the leaf images on the card base and embossed in clear for a subtle background effect.
