I recently participated in a card swap with some fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators. It was a great way to receive samples using different stamp sets to share with my stamping friends. After creating my previous Distressed Celebrate Sunflowers cards I was inspired to try another less common color combination for Sunflowers. I love how these Shiny Celebrate Sunflowers Trio came together.
One of the the new 2020-2022 In Colors Misty Moonlight pairs wonderfully with Flirty Flamingo for an amazing color combination for these Shiny Celebrate Sunflowers trio. It was fun creating different shiny aspects on each of the designs.
My first design, I was playing around the card fold and found I loved how the Z-Fold paired fabulously with the large sunflower and sprigs. “Create With Tasha“s inspiration was amazing and I hope I did it justice. The dry embossed foil sunflower topped with the Misty Moonlight outline and Flirty Flamingo center made for great dimension. Next I added the Scripty dry embossed background which adds a nice subtle detail. Finally, a simple “thank you” finishes this amazing card filled with foil shine.
With this second design I wanted to keep things simple (grin) and quick. Masked sponging an Ombre effect adds interest without adding layers. Whoa, cool! Next is the Silver heat embossing of the large sunflower image. That’s it…..no coloring. Sweet! Finally, I just has to silver heat emboss the “celebrate you”, fussy cut and pop with dimensionals to add more height. (giggle) TIP: I colored the Rhinestones using Stampin’ Blends Dark Night of Navy.
Well……I just went for it on this design. (giggle) The four squares were embossed with the Scripty Emboss Folder. Next I silver heat embossed the mini sunflowers and then cut with the Sunflowers dies. Then the Silver Foil Sprigs helped to tie the trio of flowers together. Finally, the “congratulations” sentiment created the focal point for the shiny design.
