Blank Page Muse/I Brake for Stamps - Sunflower Wishes

Hey there, crafty friends!

Thanks for stopping by Paper Play.  I’ve always enjoyed sunflowers.  They stand so tall, basking in the sun, and gently flowing with the wind.  They also happened to be a favorite of my mom and they always make me think of her.  Today’s card is inspired by her.

Sunflower Wishes was made with the following items:

Here’s how I made it:
  • Brushed baking powder over a 3.75”x5” purple card stock panel
  • Stamped sentiment onto 3.75” x 5” purple card panel with embossing ink and sprinkled embossing powder over it
  • Set embossing powder with heat tool
  • Stamped a sunflower onto a piece of white card stock; then stamped one onto a silicone stamping tool and pressed white card stock against it for a reverse stamped sunflower
  • Colored sunflowers, added highlights with white gel pen, and cut them out with detail scissors
  • Stamped large butterfly onto white card stock, colored it, and cut it out with detail scissors
  • Stamped small butterflies onto purple card panel with gold ink
  • Adhered sunflowers to card panel with double sided foam tape
  • Adhered butterfly to a sunflower with double sided foam tape
  • Ran gold ink around edges of purple card panel
  • Adhered card panel to A2 sized card base with double sided tape
  • Ran gold ink around the edges of card base

The gold embossed sentiment really stands out and shines against the purple card stock, as does the gold butterflies.  

The butterfly sits so nicely on the sunflower and serves of a reminder that those we lose are always around us.
