FS185 Happy Sunflowers

Hello Everyone, hope you are all having a great week-end!!  Sunday is Featured Stamper day and this week the honour goes to the super sweet Heather Prince (aka Princessheather).  Congratulations Heather, I'm so happy for you and enjoy your week in the spotlight!!!  :)  I chose her May Flowers card to case and kept to similar colours although I changed the flower image and sentiment.

I started with a base of Riding Hood Red and layered with Old Olive and two pieces of Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety DSP.  Between the two pieces of DSP I've added a scallop border punched piece like Heather did, using a different punch.  Over the top is a piece of red ribbon, which I've offset compared to Heather's down the middle.  The frame is from ODBD's Flower Frame 2 set and has been stamped in Memento Bamboo Leaves and hand cut.  I've used an oval mask in the middle and sponged a little to give a little dept.  I stamped the sunflowers from Harvest Blessings in Memento Rich Cocoa on X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (Y21, Y35, Y38, YR24, E35, E37, YG93, YG95, YG97).


 I then cut the sunflower out using the custom Large Sunflower Die and popped them up on foam tape.  The sentiment is also from Harvest Blessings and has been cut out with an oval punch and matted with red cut with the larger oval punch.  To finish I added a red bow made with my Bow Easy and a couple of red pearls to the corners.

Stamps - Harvest Blessings, Flower Frames 2 (ODBD)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety DSP
Ink - Memento Rich Cocoa and Bamboo Leaves
Accessories - Copics, Large Sunflower Die, SU Scallop Border Punch, Small Oval and Large Oval Punch, Red Ribbon, Bow Easy, Scissors, Kaisercraft Red Pearls, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)

Kathy, this is such a nice tribute to Heather! I love how you cut out your sunflowers. Lots of fussy cutting, but well worth it. :)

Sharon said...

Hi Kathy,

Your sunflowers are just beautiful. I know you used a die to cut the flowers but did you have to hand cut all the stems?? Love your papers and of course that stunning bow :)

Love your sunflower card.

Em said...

Ohh the disappointment you must have had when you did get your set on time. But,,, think of all the inspiration you are seeing from others and how YOU will create your masterpiece once it does arrive. Who would have though that a stamp with just borders could create such wonderful cards.
Hope you get your next set ON TIME ...can't wait to see your creations!
