Summer Sunflower

Today's card is another entry for the Beach Blogger Bingo game still going on over at Poetic Artistry. I believe we are starting round #4 now.

For this card my card base is Basic Black. Then I stamped the Paisley Background with Summer Sun ink on Summer Sun card stock & layered a piece of Striped Designer Paper (Citrus Squeeze Dotted Line by Doodlebug Designs) and added 3 Green Galore brads to the side and a strip of Apple Green ribbon down the center.

I stamped the Sunflower from Give Thanks (SU) with Basic Black ink on Shimmery White card stock & used my Prisma Color pencils, Gamsol & a blending stump to color the image. Then I punched this out with my Mega Oval punch and layerd this to a Scalloped Oval of Green Galore. I dotted the scallops with a Basic Black Ink pen.

I layered a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock that was distressed & pierced then faux stitched over the Summer Sun layer. I added a Black/White stitched ribbon (May Arts) to my sunflower image & highlight the center of the sunflower with frosted lace stickles then mounted this with mounting tape. The sentiment was stamped in Basic Black ink to complete the card.

I love the bright summery colors.


  1. Nice card. I really like that sentiment.

  2. OOh! Love that stamp! Great job!

  3. I love the colors on your card.
    It looks so summery and fresh.
    That set is in the new Stampin Up catalog.
    I got mine last night. So Happy!
