Celebrate Sunflowers Let's Celebrate You - two cool

Celebrate Sunflowers Let's Celebrate You Cards
 
I realized after I was done with my LIVE Class video that I never shared my "two cool" version of this project.  I love it because it proves that you don't have to have every sunflower colored in yellow to be awesome!
 
Celebrate Sunflowers Let's Celebrate You - olive
 
Background Basics—This version will be part of the LIVE Class Kit.  I started by adhering a 2" x 5-1/4" piece of Old Olive & gold Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper along the side of an Old Olive card base.
 
Celebrate Sunflowers Let's Celebrate You - olive 2
 
Sensational Sunflower—I stamped the large sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers set in Early Espresso ink onto a 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" square of Whisper White.  I also stamped a couple of the leaves next to the flowers, using a mask to allow me to layer them flawlessly.  To mask, I stamped the flower onto copy paper and cut out the image right on the line with no border. Then, I laid the mask over the flower and stamped the leaf on the side.
 
I colored the image with Stampin' Blends Markers. The flower is colored all over with Dark Daffodil Delight and shaded with Dark Mango Melody. The flower center is colored with Dark Crumb Cake. The leaves were colored in Light Old Olive.
 
I mounted the stamped layer onto a 3-5/8" x 3-5/8" piece of Mossy Meadow and popped it up with Dimensionals onto the card front.
 
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Celebrate Sunflowers sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink onto a 3-1/4" x 3/4" strip of Whisper White. I banner-cut the end and adhered it to the bottom of the card front with SEAL adhesive.
 
Finishing Touches—I colored a single Rhinestone Jewel with the Dark Soft Suede Blends Marker and added it next to the sentiment. I also tied a double-bow with Linen Thread and attached it with a pinched Glue Dot to the leaves.  
 
Celebrate Sunflowers Let's Celebrate You - pool party
 
Two Cool—I'm loving this alternate color combo for the sunflower. This card begins with a 2" x 5-1/4" piece of World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper adhered to a Basic Gray card base.
 
Celebrate Sunflowers Let's Celebrate You - pool party 2
 
Focal Point Layer—I colored the flower with Dark Pool Party and Light Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends. The center is in Soft Suede and the leaves are in Dark Old Olive Blends. Instead of the natural Linen Thread, I selected the gold thread from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack for the bow. The sentiment is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink and the Rhinestone Jewel is colored with Dark Basic Black. Very elegant! 
 
Which version do you like best?

Celebrate Sunflowers You Are Loved - two cool

Celebrate Sunflowers You Are Loved Cards
 
Sunflowers are so bright and cheery and August is the perfect time to create pretty sunflower projects!  Here are two versions of the same double-sunflower card. I shared how to make the first one on the video, then completely forgot to even show my "two cool" version!  Here are the details...
 
Celebrate Sunflowers You Are Loved - crumb cake
 
Background Basics—I started by embossing a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhering it to a Crumb Cake card base. I tied some Braided Linen Trim around the card front into a double-knot.
 
Next, I sponged Soft Suede ink onto a 4" x 3" piece of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper with a white and gold pattern. I layered that onto a 4-1/4" x 3-1/4" piece of Soft Suede and adhered that to the card front with SEAL adhesive.
 
Celebrate Sunflowers You Are Loved - crumb cake 2
 
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Celebrate Sunflowers sentiment in Soft Suede onto a Whisper White Tasteful Labels die-cut and adhered that to the card front. I die-cut a Gold Foil sprig using the Sunflowers dies and attached that to the label, as well.
 
Sensational Sunflowers—I stamped two of the smaller Celebrate Sunflowers images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock, then colored them with Stampin' Blends Markers. The flower petals are colored with Dark Daffodil Delight all over, then shaded with Dark Mango Melody. I added Dark Soft Suede marker to the center and the leaves are Light Old Olive. I die-cut the images with the Sunflowers dies and popped them up with Dimensionals next to the sentiment. 
 
Finishing Touches—I finished with a couple of gold Gilded Gems to balance out the gold sprig.
 
Celebrate Sunflowers You Are Loved - white
 
Two Cool—I still can't believe I forgot to show this version in the video, because I love how it turned out!  The Whisper White background is embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing folder and it's mounted onto a Thick Whisper White card base. This time, I tied some Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the front.
 
Celebrate Sunflowers You Are Loved - white 2
 
Focal Point Layer—I sponged Mint Macaron onto the DSP this time and layered it onto a Mint Macaron piece. I also tried a different Tasteful Labels die-cut shape, and positioned the flowers and gems differently, but other than that it's the same elements. 
 
Which version do you like best?

Celebrate sunflowers thanks a bunch - feldkamp 1
Celebrate Sunflowers Thanks A Bunch Card
 
I received this pretty Celebrate Sunflower swap card from Lynn Feldkamp. It's quick and simple and I love that she used the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper as a backdrop for the sunflower
 
Background Basics—Lynn started by embossing a 4" x 4" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock with the the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and mounting it on the top of a Very Vanilla Thick card base. She added a 4" x 2" piece of In Good Taste DSP to create the foundation for the flower and added a strip of Forever Greenery Very Vanilla Ribbon across it. She finished by stamping the Celebrate Sunflowers sentiment across the bottom in Early Espresso ink.
 
Sensational Sunflower—Lynn stamped the Celebrate Sunflower large flower in Early Espresso ink onto Bumblebee cardstock for the focal point. She die-cut a coordinating Sunflower die-cut in Early Espresso cardstock and adhered that over the top of the stamped sunflower. It's all popped up with Dimensionals. So lovely!
 
Celebrate sunflowers saying hello - martin 1
 
Celebrate Sunflowers Just Saying Hello Card
 
This swap card by Frenchie Martin combines the Celebrate Sunflowers with the textures from the Comfort & Hope stamp set. 
 
Background Basics—Frenchie started by Stamping the circle image from Comfort & Hope in Highland Heather ink several times over a Whisper White Thick card base. Looks like she inked once and just kept stamping without re-inking for a variegated look. Next, she added a 1" x 5-1/2" strip of In Good Taste woodgrain DSP down the edge.
 
Focal Point Layer—She stamped the Celebrate Sunflowers large flower in the corner of a 3" x 4-1/4" piece of Whisper White, then colored it in with Highland Heather and Soft Suede Stampin' Blends Markers. Next she stamped the Tasteful Touches sentiment in Early Espresso ink at the bottom and added some Comfort & Hope small circles with Highland Heather ink.  Frenchie layered it onto a 3-1/8" x 4-3/8" piece of Soft Suede cardstock and mounting it to the card front. She finished by adding a trio of gold Metallic Pearls to the sunflower. So pretty!

Last Chance To Earn Boho Indigo & Jar of Flowers Kits

Hi Stamping Friends!
 
Just a reminder that my two cool LIVE Class offers, the Boho Indigo Tutorial/Add-On Kit and my Jar of Flowers LIVE Class Kit, both end today, Monday, August 3, 2020. My classes typically run thru each Tuesday, and I think I even mis-printed that these ran thru Tuesday too, but they really do end today!  That's because starting tomorrow, we'll have a brand new Online Store and none of my current product shopping links would work. It will also be the first day that you can purchase products from the NEW August-December Mini Catalog!  I can't wait!

**Mini Catalogs will be going out at the end of next week, around August 8. I just realized that I forgot to hit the "submit" button on my mailing order for Stampin' Up! to send out catalogs for me, so I had to expedite an order of catalogs and will be sending them out myself this coming week. I'm so very sorry for the delay and I appreciate your patience. I will be sharing a link to the Catalog PDF beginning August 4.

Jar of flowers front flap smile - two cool

Jar of Flowers Front Flap Smile Cards
 
The tall & skinny bouquet image from the Jar of Flowers stamp set was perfect for the front flap card I had in mind!  I paired the florals with the cool patterns from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for a trendy and colorful look!
 
You can create both of these cute cards when you earn my Jar of Flowers LIVE Class Kit...offer ends today! 
 
Jar of flowers front flap smile - seaside
 
Background Basics—The card base is two-part: one 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" quarter sheet of Seaside Spray cardstock and a 2-3/4" x 10-1/2" piece of Seaside Spray, scored at the 5-1/4" mark.  I adhered two 1" x 5-1/4" pieces of the brick patterned DSP from the In Good Taste double-pack to the quarter-sheet base. Then, I adhered the front flap in the center. Make sure you use a secure-holding adhesive, like Tear & Tape or the NEW SEAL Adhesive! 
 
Jar of flowers front flap smile - seaside 2
 
Fabulous Flowers—I stamped the jar first in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink at the bottom of a 2-1/2" x 5" piece of Whisper White cardstock. Next, I stamped the arrangement of flowers above the jar and the stems image inside the jar. Then, I colored the bouquet with Stampin' Blends Markers:

• Tulips in Light & Dark Rococo Rose
• Medium Flowers in Light & Dark Seaside Spray
• Other flowers in Light Purple Posy & Light Mango Melody
Leaves & stems in Light Old Olive
• Jar lightly colored in Light Seaside Spray
• Leaves in Granny Apple Green

I layered the piece onto the front flap.

Sweet Sentiment—I stamped a sentiment from Lovely You in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock, die-cut it with a cute little Ornate Frames tag and attached it with a couple of Glue Dots.  I also added a small Misty Moonlight/Silver Baker's Twine bow, from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack. It's attached with a pinched Glue Dot.
 

Jar of flowers front flap smile - seaside 3

Finishing Touches—I highly recommend adding some Wink of Stella Glimmer to the flowers to really make them shimmer and shine!  So pretty!  I also added a small Misty Moonlight/Silver Baker's Twine bow, from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack. It's attached with a pinched Glue Dot.
 
Jar of flowers front flap smile - seaside 4
 
Inside The Card—The inside of the card looks amazing when it's stamped a colored with a portion of the same Jar of Flowers image.  I colored it on the same colors as the on the card front. Then, I stamped the diagonal-lined decorative border image from the stamp set in Seaside Spray down the side.  Wow...that really dresses it up!
 
Jar of flowers front flap smile - gray
 
Two Cool—My second version begins with a Basic Gray two-part card base, decorated with a dark gray tween pattern from the In Good Taste DSP.
 
Jar of flowers front flap smile - gray 3

Fabulous Flowers—This time, I tried a different color combo with Stampin' Blends Markers:

• Light & Dark Poppy Parade for the tulips
• Seaside Spray Light & Dark for medium flowers
• Other flowers in Dark Highland Heather and Light Shaded Spruce
Leaves & Stems in Dark Old Olive

Jar of flowers front flap smile - gray 4
Water In The Jar—The Jar of Flowers stamp set includes three images that are reversible. That means that they are symmetrical and you can flip them over and stamp on the solid back side for a colorful coordinating background. I stamped the front of the water image in Pool Party ink to get the outline details, then I cleaned the stamp on my Simply Shammy and flipped it over on my block. I stamped the solid side again with Pool Party and stamped over the outlines to fill in the color. Too Cool!
 
Jar of flowers front flap smile - gray 5
Inside The Card—I added a little floral accent on the inside of this card in the same colors, along with a Pool Party decorative line.  Love it!
