Sunflowers

Hello and Welcome

First I'd like to introduce my newest followers Sharon, Mia and Claire.  I hope you will visit them and enjoy their lovely creations.  I'm very sorry Sharon I'm unable to find you.  If you have a blog please leave a comment so I can link to you..

I have been playing with a wonderful  sunflower set of stamps and papers  that arrived the other day as a freebie with a magazine.

 My Misti came in very useful for stamping onto the cut out seed packets and the large sunflower.

The background papers came with the set.   I coloured the flower with a few promarkers.  The piece of scruffy hessian had been lying on my desk for ever and the little flower was previously cut from yellow card.


For my second card I stamped and fussy cut the small flowers from the set and the swirls were die cut from an old envelope and snipped into pieces to fit.

I would like to join in with the Stamping Sensations Challenge - July (Anything With Flowers)

Two very beautiful cards here Barb and I like that you've used the same colour tones on both of then and yet they're both completely different. The stamps are beautiful and I really like the open seed packet as it makes such a fabulous focal point. I think I'll definitely be looking for this magazine next time I'm shopping. Thank you for sharing this with us at Stamping Sensations and good luck. Sandra x
