Flower stamps are extremely versatile, they can be used for so many occasions, including anniversaries. The Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set is a very popular set by Stampin’ Up! They also carry Sunflowers Dies that coordinate. Either of these products can work alone OR together.
How did she do that?
I love the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in the Annual catalog. You can do so much with this set. I wanted to show how to create ” White Wash Technique”. I started by stamping the sunflower in Early Espresso on Crumb Cake cardstock. I then took my white Craft Stampin’ ink refill and squeezed a small amount on a block. I grabbed my blender pen and started coloring the ends of the flower with the craft white ink. I let that dry for 10 minutes and then used a Sponge Dauber to add Crushed Curry ink in the center working my way out to the ends. I added a little Early Espresso to the center with another dauber. Tapped a few white dots in the center and finished it with some Wink of Stella.
I cut it out with the dies. Added it to a layer of Early Espresso cardstock (4″ x 5 1/4″) that was embossed with the Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder. Attached the Early Espresso piece to a Crushed Curry (standard card base 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″). Lastly, I added some Metallic Mesh Ribbon for some sparkle. The sentiment came from a retired set – Love & Happiness.
I hope you enjoy this set as much as I do.
LEARN ABOUT DIES & DIE-CUTTING
Dies help you create unique die-cut shapes and paper cut outs with just a quick run through your die-cutting and embossing machine. Detailed dies include ejection holes so you can remove the paper easily.
The Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine works for the Sunflowers Dies. The compact size is great for “on the go” crafting. The 3-1/2″ platform works with many of Stampin’ Up!’s smaller dies and embossing folders. In the catalog, it will be noted on the die set if the mini OR the (full-size) Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine.
