Sunflower

Debra Burgin 1108 SunflowerEach 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.

    Debra,
    This is SO pretty! I just love your design and the colors you used. I wish I lived close by because, I’d take this class in a heartbeat. You sponging looks perfect and I could use a few of your tips too! : ) Your card reminds me how close we are to my favorite season and makes me happy. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Every year I say I am going to plant sunflowers and every year I forget about it until I see them blooming in other yards! Fabulous card!
