Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle
Today I’m playing with another one of the awesome new Stampin’ Up! bundles. Meet the NEW Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle. This bundle is so versatile — you can create gorgeous sunflowers using the stamps without the dies, using the dies but not the stamps or by using them together. Each method will give you an entirely different look. (I’ll be showing you those looks throughout the week)

Did you ever try to take a photo of something but no matter how much you tried you just couldn’t quite capture the depth of color or the beauty of it? Well welcome to this card. In real life the red is so much deeper and the shading is much more prominent but no matter how many photos I took, this is the best I could capture.
Coloring the Sunflower
- I stamped the sunflower and leaf images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock and cropped them out with the corresponding dies.
- The Petals: I colored all of the petals with the Light Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend. Then I added shading with Dark Cherry Cobbler.
- The Center: I colored the center of the sunflower with the Dark Gray Granite Stampin’ Blend. I dotted around the edges with Dark Cherry Cobbler and Bronze, and added a few dots of Bronze in the very center also.
- The Leaves: I colored the entire leaf with Dark Gray Granite and then added shading with Bronze.
Tip: Don’t get locked into using the same family of Stampin’ Blends for shading. Sometimes adding a another tone works better for a more dramatic effect.
Assemble the Card:
- Start with a card base made from Whisper White Thick Cardstock.
- Add a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Basic Black Cardstock.
- Stamp the sentiment on a 5″ x 3 3/4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock and attach to card.
- Add a 5″ x 1 3/4″ strip of wood grain DSP from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper Pack
- Add the sunflower and the leaves.
Tip: stamp the sentiment before adding the piece of white cardstock to the card. If you don’t get a perfect stamp you can just flip the cardstock over and try again.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed today’s card.
