This week, we made sunflowers from Stampin’ Up Medium Daisy Punch and Stampin’ Up 3/4 ” Circle Punch for our scrapbook spread.
- Create small sunflowers by punching 2 daisy’s from Medium Daisy Punch from Bumblebee card stock
- Attach them in the center rotating them so all the petals are showing
- With small sunflower stamp from Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set, stamp in Cinnamon Cider ink onto Cinnamon Cider card stock and punch out the center of the sunflower with 3/4″ Circle Punch
- Attach the center to the Bumblebee petals
- Use Ornate Bordrers in Old Olive card stock for the greenery behind the small sunflowers
- Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle #154065
I love how the large die cut sunflower looks…so rich! NEW PRODUCT from the August – December mini catalog on page 45…Brushed Metallic 12 x 12 card stock. It comes with 3 colors to a package….Bronze, Copper, and Gold.
Here the Bronze color added such a shine and richness to the whole look of the sunflower!
- Stamp a large sunflower from Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Cinnamon Cider ink on Bumblebee card stock
- Color some of the petals in with Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Marker
- Die cut using Sunflower Dies HINT: rotate until the petals line up….seems like you turn forever and then it just falls in to perfect placement!
- Die cut the outline sunflower from Sunflowers Dies in Bronze Metallic paper
- Die cut center for sunflower also in Bronze Metallic paper
- Attach all together in the center…for added dimension, use Stampin’ Dimensionals
Sailing Home Scrapbook spread
You all know, I love the texture on projects! Here’s a new idea to try! It was taught to me by Gwen, a team member in Florida and Sue. We used to use tin drink cans when emptied to die cut with the old Sixxix die, the kind with the black foam around the knife blade……. WELL…..turns out our regular dies will also cut the tin!!!Fun! Find a pretty colored can and get happy!
Now I did go over back and forth a few times in the die cutting machine just to make sure it all gets cut well. HINT: when taking out of die, you may want to bend to get it to release also.
DON’T GET CUT WITH THE SHARP EDGES!!!
- So the wheel was die cut from a Root Beer Zetvia can and the sail boats and light house were all cut from one small Pepsi tin can
- Tear a 3″ x 12″ piece of Crumb Cake and sponge randomly for each side to make the sand come alive.
- Alphabet is from Pattern Play pg. 102. Nice thing about this alphabet set is that it comes with multiple common letters 🙂
- Sailing Home stamp set #149457 and Smooth Sailing Dies #149576
