Say it with Sunflowers

This sunny thank you card was made for a friend who loves sunflowers.

Say it with Sunflowers. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

My main colours are Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Basic White, with others used for the colouring.

The Jar of Flowers Stamp Set and coordinating Jar Punch provide the stamping and jar shape.

I’ve stamped in Black to create the outlines for colouring. I would normally use Grey or Brown for this, but felt black would work better with the overall design.

For the sunflowers, these are stamped twice. This allowed me to fussy cut parts of the images out for some strategic piecing. They are stuck together in various layers over the top of the jar.

Now, instead of the three sunflowers, there is a fuller looking bouquet. It was a bit fiddly and time consuming cutting them out, but it was worth it.

Using Stampin’ Blends, the water is coloured in Balmy Blue, stems and leaves in Granny Apple Green, centre in Soft Suede and flowers in Daffodil Delight.

A sentiment from the Blossoms in Bloom Stamp Set sits in a shape cut using the Tasteful Labels dies.

This is raised using Dimensionals over some Linen Thread and a little bow.

Jar of Flowers Bundle

Here is another of the floral projects I’ve been making recently. This card uses the Jar of Flowers Bundle.

In the Bundle, there is a stamp set that is perfect for colouring, with reversible stamps too. This is teamed with the co-ordinating Jar Punch. As bundles are discounted, they are great items to purchase.

The flowers for this project are first stamped in Smoky Slate. Then, they are given some colour with Stampin’ Blends. My combos are So Saffron, Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather and Petal Pink. Once I had cut them out, I used Pool Party Blends to highlight around the edge.

My jar is in So Saffron to co-ordinate with the layer and some of the flowers.

A bow from the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon is wrapped around the jar before it is stuck to the card.

The flowers are then attached to the project using Dimensionals.

Finally, some Metallic Pearls are placed around the design and Wink of Stella is added to the centre of the flowers for a touch of sparkle.

I like the white space on this project as it allows the flowers to shine. Be sure to add this Jar of Flowers Bundle to your shopping list!

If you’d like to make projects like this, I’m running a Fabulous Florals Online Class on 23rd September. Head to my Class Timetable for full details of this and the other classes I’m running.

Flowers for Every Season Suite

Have you come across the Flowers for Every Season Suite? It’s near the front of the Annual Catalogue.

I’ve had fun creating some cards with it. Here is the first one. It’s my version of a project on Page 11.

Flowers for Every Season Suite. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

This Suite can only be described as a mega suite, it includes TWO Stamp Set Bundles and DSP, along with loads of other products.

The flowers are fussy cut from the 6×6 DSP in the Suite and stuck together. Cutting out the flowers was the most time consuming part of this project!

In Colors are used for the DSP, so I’ve co-ordinated this with a base card in Bumblebee. Another piece of DSP is used for the Cinnamon Cider strip at the bottom of the project.

One of the Bundles in the Suite is the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set and Jar Punch. Using Misty Moonlight and tone-on-tone stamping, the jar is stamped and punched.

For more depth, the flowers are attached to the project using Dimensionals.

As the DSP uses the new In Colors, it’s great to be able to use the co-ordinating In Color elements.

Here I’ve added a knotted piece of In Color Ribbons and some In Color Enamel Dots too for the finishing touches.

It’s a bright and vibrant card that is sure to put a smile on someone’s face.
