Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Thank You Card


Hello.  I'm so glad you could stop by.  Do you have a favorite card making technique?  I have loved heat embossing since I first learned how to do it many many years ago!  I love the 'magic' of the transformation the embossing powder makes as it is heated and I feel like it is just the perfect finishing touch for a card.  

Night of Navy Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
In Good Taste Designer Series Paper ~ 4" x 5-1/4" and 1" x 4-1/2"
Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper ~ 3-1/2" x 3-1/2", 2" x 2-1/2" and 2" x 2-1/4"
Basic White Cardstock ~ 3-4" x 3"

  1. Stamp the large sunflower, leaves and small sunflower on Fluid 100 Paper with Staz On ink. (don't forget to clean your stamp with Staz On cleaner)
  2. Using Water Painters and Classic Stampin' Pads, watercolor your stamped images.
  3. Use the Sunflower Dies to cut out the sunflowers and leaves with your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.
  4. Stamp the sentiment using Versamark.  Then, sprinkle it with Copper Embossing Powder and set with the Heat Tool.  If you have a Versamarker, you can also add a few dots to the center of the sunflower. 
  5. Fussy cut around the sentiment with Paper Snips.
  6. Attach the DSP and leaves to the front of the card with your favorite adhesive.  (I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue)
  7. Attach the Sunflower with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  8. I attached the 'bunch' side of the sentiment with Liquid Glue and the 'Thanks' side of the sentiment with a couple of Stampin' Dimensionals (one of them was cut in half)

Usually I center the Basic White Layer inside the card.  This time I decided to offset it.  What do you think?  Just something a little different.  This sunflower is also stamped on Fluid 100 paper, water-colored, then glued on the Basic White CS.

I hope you enjoyed this card!  Please contact me if you have any questions, for a catalog (if you don't have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and live in the USA), or to Join!  You can also click the link at the top of my blog to sign up for my newsletter.
