For this hop, I’ve created projects are three levels:

  • beginner/simple stamping: quick, easy projects needing limited supplies; clean and simple cards;
  • casual stamping: takes a little more time, uses some tools, more embellishments, creations for an occasion;
  • avid stamping: more time, techniques, tools, whatever it is, I want to do it!

Celebrate Sunflowers Simple Stamping

When I create simple stamping cards, I most often use the Stampin’ Up! Note Cards and Envelopes.  And that’s just what I’ve done here.

I really like the size (they’re just a bit smaller than a “standard” card) for creating a clean and simple card.

Stamp the large sunflower from Celebrate Sunflowers in Calypso Coral.

Then stamp the sentiment in Memento on Calypso Coral.

Adhere the sentiment strip with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

And, you’ve just made a pretty card in less than 5 minutes!

 

Celebrate Sunflowers Casual Card

This Celebrate Sunflowers card uses the same layout as the first card but amps it up a little.

Set aside about 10 minutes to create this card.

You can see the same placement of the flower in the corner

but on a die cut layer this time.

And, the sentiment has been die cut and layered using the Tasteful Labels dies.

Next add a Night of Navy layer embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

Don’t you just love the detail on those labels die cuts?

Some of the labels are stitched and some have an embossed border.

For me, that’s a swoon!

Celebrate Sunflowers Avid Card

As I was making this one, I kept thinking it reminded me of something.

I finally figured it out!

It’s like the designs from Crown & Ivy.

I often pick up at least one new shirt from their line when I visit home.

I colored the flowers with my Stampin’ Blends using a new coloring technique I’ve been working on for adding easy depth.

You’ll love how easy it is!!

      Thanks, Lynsay! It is wonderful!!

  • Katja May 26, 2020 at 3:08 am

    Thank you so much to give me this great opportunity to take part in this fantastic blog hop.
    I am always fascinated how some simple addings make a card look even better. Your steps from simple stamping to a passionate stamper are brilliant. And I like that every kind of stamper can find his personal favourite type of stamping.

    • Sara Levin May 26, 2020 at 6:30 am

      You are so welcome! Glad to have you on the team. And I love your description: simple to passionate. That’s a keeper.

  • Denita Wright-Smee May 25, 2020 at 1:51 am

    Super gorgeous Sunflower cards, Sara. The Avid card is something else! Thankyou for your inspiration from the ‘Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle’. D x

    • Sara Levin May 25, 2020 at 7:18 am

  • Tammy Cariol Wilson May 25, 2020 at 12:48 am

    Love the unexpected colors that you chose! And the layers on your avid card….a-ma-zing!!! 😀💕

    • Sara Levin May 25, 2020 at 7:17 am

      Thanks so much, Tammy! I have a feeling those dies are going to be asked to come out and play often.

  • Martin's Mayhem May 24, 2020 at 5:54 pm

    Fabulous as always! I was so close at using this suite too!

    • Sara Levin May 24, 2020 at 6:14 pm

      Thanks, Martin! I’ve now had to tell myself to play with something else for a day or two.

  • Eva Dobilas May 24, 2020 at 12:23 pm

    WOW, these are all so gorgeous and I love how you used the Night of Navy, I would have never thought of that and all the layers are just beautiful!!!

    • Sara Levin May 24, 2020 at 12:42 pm

      Thanks, Eva! I’ve definitely had fun trying out lots of the new layering products.

  • Ruth Magness May 24, 2020 at 9:42 am

    Love the blue sunflowers. I’m yet to break out the dies.

    • Sara Levin May 24, 2020 at 9:57 am

      Thanks, Ruth! You’ll enjoy using them.

  • sharnihaines May 24, 2020 at 4:05 am
