Happy Monday! It’s time for our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenge! This week’s inspiration is a beautiful sunflower cake! Wow! Stunning!
Of course, I just HAD to use my new Celebrate Sunflower Bundle on my card!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Whisper White cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White cardstock is embossed with the Old World Paper Embossing Folder
- A 2-1/2 x 4 piece of Forever Greenery DSP was cut with deep flags on each end.
- The sunflowers were stamped with Memento Black Ink on Whisper White cardstock, then colored with Daffodil Delight Combo, Dark Mango Melody and Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. The center was colored with Bronze Stampin’ Blends. The leaves were colored with Light Granny Apple Green and Light Shaded Spruce Blends. They were cut out with the Sunflower Dies and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The greenery from the Sunflower Dies were cut from Shaded Spruce and trimmed down, then tucked under the flowers.
- The greeting from Celebrate Sunflower was stamped with Shaded Spruce on Whisper White cardstock, then cut with the Tasteful Labels Die and added on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I absolutely LOVE how this card turned out!!! And I think it really resembles the cake, don’t you? OK…check out what Mary did with the Inspiration Monday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary! Our cards were pretty similar…of course we both used Timeless Tropical! lol!
Our popular TECHNIQUES Collection is back with SIX new techniques for cards! We are featuring the upcoming BLESSINGS OF HOME STAMP SET and FLOWERS OF HOME DIES (available for demos to preorder now and customers on January 3) along with the techniques. These flower images are so pretty to color or leave monochromatic for a vintage look! We've also paired the Bundle with the HEART & HOME DESIGNER PAPER on our SIX technique card tutorials.

Don't you LOVE a great tree set? We do! In this bundle, use the trees singly or build an entire forest! They aren't just for Christmas cards, this bundle can be used year-around to build a woodsy scene. For our Collection, we've paired Stampin' Up!'s WHIMSICAL TREES STAMP SET and CHRISTMAS TREE DIES with the WHIMSY & WONDER DESIGNER PAPER to create three cards (one a special fold card) and a fabulous 3D project you can't wait to use...just in time for the holidays!
