Sunflowers. Ahh, how they bring back memories. As a child my mother would plant sunflowers in her garden and though out the growing season I would stand next to them to mark their growth. They quickly towered over me and I was always amazed by at just how tall they would get. My mother even took a picture of me wearing my favorite yellow rain jacket and hat next to them one summer when I was about 3. When they were done for the season, we dried them so that we could let the birds eat the seeds during the long winter months in Wisconsin. I guess the fact that I was 3 might be one of the reasons they seem so tall! LOL! But when I saw this set it made me think of that picture from so long ago.
So today I thought I’d share some cards using our new 2020 In Colors made with this stamp set and it’s coordinating dies. These first two cards use the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper (145286) to add to the design.
Done in Just Jade and Bumblebee. And this next one uses our Misty Moonlight and Magenta Madness to make the sunflower pop!
The tag was done using our new Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (152883). And if you need a quick card check out this next one using the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon (146912) and Blends to color the center.
And last but not least a fun technique card.
First the images were stamped in Bleach, the leaves cut out, and then the card was assembled. This simple technique is quite striking and I love how the beach works differently with each color card stock. The In Color Designer Series Paper was used for the pop of Magenta Madness on the dies. and of course those fun little In Color Enamel Dots. I just love them with their glossy shine.
So which one is your favorite? Why not leave me a comment and let me know what you think?
Just a bit of Stampin’ Up! news:
IMPORTANT Stampin’ Up! is launching our new websites on August 4th. The links taking your directly to the product in my Online Store may not work as normal. They may simply work by taking you to my store but not to the product itself. If you have any issues placing an order with me please let me know. I’m happy to help.
Please remember these two very important things: When placing an order in the Online store: Please confirm you are shopping with me and that my name is listed as your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator (The new system will allow you to check out as a guest and bypass choosing a demonstrator. If that is the case I won’t get your order information and I won’t be able to mail catalogs, gifts, etc.). My name is listed as Jini Merck and I live in Clarkesville, Georgia.
Since this is a NEW website, your bookmark and auto fill passwords may not work.
If that is the case you’ll want to create a new bookmark and sign in that way, saving it again to your password safe if you use one. Also, because of this your password may not work. If that happens you will need to reset it. Because it is a new website and we are using a new email system for it, when you go to reset your password, the link emailed to you may go in your spam folder. So you’ll want to check that if you don’t see it right shortly after you request it.
Please know that I’m here to help in any way as always. There may be a few bugs to start with in the new Online Store, so if you prefer for me to place your order for you I can. We can get through this together as always.
Thanks and as always I appreciate you choosing me as your Demonstrator!
