Don't fall off your chair in shock-yes it is a post at Sunflower Stamper other than a scheduled design team post :0)!! Finally play time in the stamp room!! I made an effort this week to finally sort out the retired sets, accessories, etc and clean up a bit so I have room to create and no doubt as to what I can use!! Really excited that new toys are coming later this week!!
I made this card for the Stamping 411 challenge of the week.
Sunflower was the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw the sketch.
I decided to run with that and use the new In Color Summer Starfruit-a very earthy yellow, perfect for a Sunflower. The card base is Summer Starfruit. The accent side layer is Chocolate Chip DSP layered onto Chocolate Chip card stock. The Sunflower stamp was inked with Summer Starfruit first. I used a sponge dauber to remove some of the ink from the center, then added Chocolate Chip before stamping onto Very Vanilla card stock. The Sunflower was also layered onto Chocolate Chip before attaching to the card base. The saying, from Curly Cute, was stamped on Very Vanilla with Chocolate Chip. I sponged the edge with Summer Starfruit before attaching to a layer of Chocolate Chip, and then onto the background with dimensionals. Sponging is so much easier with the new pads!! As was inking the background stamp-piece of cake!!
Lastly, the fun elements. In the center is a button from the Naturals set. It may be Espresso in color, but it coordinates very well. In the center I added a couple pieces of Whisper White Bakers Twine and then sponged it with Chocolate Chip. At the bottom, a Chocolate Chip bow of Scallop Dots Ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by today! Hoping to be back on a much more regular basis!
