Each month Stampin’ Up! provides its demonstrators with a full-color magazine brimming with success stories, technique ideas, and product information. I look forward to finding it in the mailbox, although we can view it online earlier than we can IRL.
A recent issue featured a scrapbook layout with a background done with the new Sunflower stamp, and I knew I had to interpret it in a card. I fussed with different sentiment pieces, but decided simplicity was the best option. This is one of our projects in camp this month.
The impact of this card is the careful sponging around these fabulous embossed sunflowers. It’s hard to believe that this started with a piece of Naturals Ivory card stock! I’ve refined my sponging technique — I’ll share my tips with you tomorrow.
