Celebrate Sunflowers A Sneak Peek for CCMC

Happy Thursday to you!  Today on the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge, we have a sketch.


I love the challenge of a good sketch.  Here is my card.

CCCM#614 Celebrate Sunflowers by Jo Anne Hewins

I used the new Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and the Sunflowers dies.  These are available as a bundle beginning June 3rd.

The card base is Thick Whisper White cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.  Run the front of the card through a die cutting machine and the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.  I love that folder!

The wood look paper is from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  It measures 3 x 4.  The leaf paper on the sides is from the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.  I cut 2 strips that are 3/4 x 2 3/4.  Glue each strip to a side of the wood paper.  Then glue the entire piece to the front of the card.

Stamp the large sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Soft Suede ink on Whisper White card stock.  Color in the flower with the Light and Dark Mango Melody Blends.  I did use the Color Lifter Blend in some places.  The center of the flower is colored with the Dark Soft Suede Blend.

Stamp the large and small leaves in Memento Black on Whisper White.  Color these in with the Light and Dark Shaded Spruce Blends.

Cut out the sunflower and the leaves using the Sunflowers Dies.

Add the sunflower with dimensionals and the leaves with a glue dot.

Color a 7" piece of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding with a Dark Shaded Spruce Blend.  Add a little snail to adhere to the sunflower with the ribbon bent in half.

Stamp the HELLO  from the Forever Fern stamp set in Versamark on a scrap of Mango Melody card stock.  Add White Emboss Powder and heat with a Heat Tool.  Punch with the Classic Label Punch and trim off the ends.  Add to the ribbon with glue dots.

This card came together quickly for me and I love how it turned out.  It doesn't always happen that way, you know.
