Hello friends! Svitlana is here today with a stamp focus post for the newly released Sunflower Daisy Stamp Set.
I have three cards made using this amazing set.
For my first card, I choose what I think would be a traditional color palette for sunflowers – yellow and blue.
First, I die-cut several sunflower heads and leaves out of a Solar White 80lb Cardstock using the coordinating dies and then stamped the corresponding element onto them. I used the Citrus Burst, Fresh Lemon, Maple Yellow and Honey Drizzle Crisp Dye Inks for the sunflower petals, Rocky Shore, Mocha and Espresso Crisp Dye Inks for the seeds. Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, and Evergreen Crisp Dye Inks were used for the leaves.
Then I adhered the flowers and leaves in the top part of the card.
Lastly, I added several yellow crystals.
As much as I love sunflowers in their original colors when I work with flower stamps I always like trying non-traditional (maybe not even real if you will) colors. So for my second card, I went this way.
Next, I created a simple ombre watercolor background using the Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen watercolor paints from the Watercolor 36 Pan Set. After coloring the background, I added splatters of the same watercolors and also black paint splatters for additional interest.
Next, I foam mounted the panel onto a white card base. Followed by adhering the stamped die-cuts onto the card.
Lastly, I popped the sentiment, white embossed onto a Jet Black strip and several clear droplets.
Ok, it is not a surprise that I love space and galaxy themes. I had the idea for this card several years ago and I literally have been waiting for the ideal sunflower stamp set to implement it.
First, I stamped the sunflowers “field” in the bottom part of the card. I used the same inks as in the first card. I also was using the coordinating mask stencils to mask off the overlapping elements.
Next, I masked off the whole scene using a mask cutout of a masking paper and created the space sky in the top part of the card. First, I blended Midnight Violet, Sapphire, and Jet Black Crisp Dye Inks. Then I sprayed a bit of Pure White Ink Spray on top and added splatters of white acrylic paint.
Lastly, I added some accents with a white gel pen.
