Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle
The Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle is one of the most versatile stamp and die bundles that Stampin’ Up! offers! I have been able to make so many different styles of cards –– from complex coloring to simple stamping and die cutting.
Today I used the sunflower dies and some quick ink blending along with the simply stamped sentiment, for a card that took almost no time to create. Notice how it contrasts with the cards below where I stamped and colored the sunflower images. Same bundle –– completely different looks.
Creating the Depth on the Sunflower
To create a sunflower with a ton of depth, I used the dies in the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle to cut the base piece from So Saffron card stock. Then, I added shading by blending Bumble Bee ink from the center outward –– keeping the center darkest. Next I used the detail die to crop the top layer of the sunflower. Once assembled, we get a sunflower with a lot of depth, that didn’t take a lot of work.
Instructions for Today’s Card
- Attach a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Bumble Bee Cardstock to an A2 card base made from Basic White Thick Cardstock.
- Add a piece of 5″ x 3 3/4″ piece of designer series paper (DSP).
- With the large base die, crop the base of the sunflower from So Saffron Cardstock.
- Use a blending brush to blend Bumble Bee ink from the center outward keeping the center significantly darker than the edges.
- Crop the top detail layer of the sunflower from Bumble Bee cardstock with the coordinating detail die and attach to the sunflower base.
TIP: To make assembling the sunflower a breeze –– attach a piece of Stampin’ Up! Adhesive Sheet to the back of the Bumble Bee cardstock before cropping with the detail die.
- Adhere the assembled sunflower to the top left corner of the card with Stampin’ Seal adhesive.
- Stamp the sentiment in black ink on the right side of a 4 1/4″ x 3/4″ strip of white cardstock.
- Crop the left side of the sentiment strip at an angle and attach to the right side of the card about 1″ from the bottom, overlapping the sunflower.
