The Regal Colors of Fall
This gorgeous Sunflower from my garden is the inspiration for my fall card that I made for my daughter that has moved to Texas and will be missing the blooms of all my sunflowers this year. The Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle is one of my favorite bundles in this years annual catalog. I paired it with Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty Paper and Well Written Dies to make a sweet card.
Adhesive Sheets are amazing. If you haven’t tried them yet, you are missing out! I used the them to put the Well Written words on to the card. I thought it would be clumsy and difficult to remove the backings. I was pleasantly surprised.
The Blends are my go to coloring tools when I wanted to bring the regal colors of the beautiful sunflower in my garden to the Shimmery White Paper. I used Cherry Cobbler, Rich Razzleberry, and Blackberry Bliss for he petals; Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede brought to life the center seeds; and Granny Apple Green and Blackberry Bliss are featured in the leaves. The Artistry Blooms DSP echoed the beautiful colors that fill the landscape in New England. I do hope you enjoyed this project. Don’t forget to make a comment to be entered into the monthly prize drawing. I would love to know what you think (make sure to include #stampitcontest). The night of this blog hop debut (August 29 at 8:45) I will be going live to make this beautiful card. Check it out on Gigi Stamps on Facebook.
Congratulations to Donna Billingsley
