3 Sunflower Cards by Nicole

Hello there! 

The blog is full of sunshine today as I'm sharing three different cards I made using my new Sunflower stamp and die set. If you follow me on Instagram you know that I am slightly (read: extremely) obsessed with sunflowers so this has to be one of my favorite sets in my entire collection. 

Now let me show you these bright and happy cards!

Hello Fall

I consider this first card to be a quintessential fall design. Kraft cardstock, ink blending, and rich brown hues. I started by stamping the large sunflower image from the set and three leaves to tuck around it. I added a few details to the sunflower center with a white gel pen to make them pop. I glued all my flower pieces onto a stitched rectangle (smallest one from my Find the Beauty Die Set) that I inked with the Fossilized Amber and Vintage Photo Distress Oxides.

For my sentiment, I die cut several "hello"s from my Script Greetings Die Set from white cardstock and inked it with the same brown Distress Oxide color. I adhered it to the right of the sunflower and added "fall" below. I popped this whole panel onto the center of a kraft cardbase that I stamped with my Gingham Background. 

Hello There

My next card is more bright and clean. I used the largest sunflower image again but this time added only one leaf and one of the stems from the set. I popped the finished flower onto another stitched rectangle. I used some woodgrain textured cardstock this time and sponged some Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink along the bottom. It helps ground the flower.

To add my sentiment I die cut the small tag from my Folded Gift Tag Die Set and stamped "hello there" from Fall Sentiments. I "tied" it onto the stem with some natural twine. The finished panel was then popped onto a cardbase that I stamped with my Gingham Background again, but this in a bright yellow ink. 

Thinking of You

The final card I think is my favorite. I stamped three of the small sunflower and a stem for each. For the background panel, I used my stitched rectangle again and added Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink upwards from the left corner. I spent a lot of time blending it so it would fade seamlessly into the white background...it was definitely worth the effort! I also spritzed the background with water to get the speckled, oxidized look these inks are known for.

I popped the flower heads up, arranging each one in a slightly different direction. Then I slipped a stem underneath for each one. Again, I "tied" them together using a piece of twine. In the top corner I stamped "thinking of you" from Fall Sentiments and adhered the whole panel to a white, woodgrain cardbase. 

You can also watch my how to video about this set below.

I've been so inspired by my Sunflower set and I think it shows in these bright, sunshine-y cards. Oh, I should also mention that all these cards (as well as every one I make lately) feature the Tonic Nuvo Drops in Morning Dew. 

I will list all the Right at Home stamps and dies I used below. 

Hope you have a great day!
