The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Sunflower Season Watercolor Card

Hello everyone!  Have you been following along with the Stamp Simply Blog and the designers for the New 2017 Summer Release week?  If you missed any of the days I encourage you to check out the Stamp Simply Blog to see some beautiful inspiration from the design team.


Today, I will be sharing two cards with you using the new stamp sets and coordinating dies.  My first card will be in this blog post and then I have a second blog post that will be going up this evening so be sure to check back.  The floral images in both sets are so beautiful and fun to color.  Both stamp sets also have several wonderful verses and sentiments.

Darsie, created a YouTube video sharing the New 2017 Summer Releases. 



For my card I stamped the sunflower image from the  Stamp Simply Clear Stamps - Sunflower Season SS-018 on to a piece of Ranger - Watercolor paper using VersaMark Ink.  Then I sprinkled on some of the Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder and used a heat tool to melt and heat set the powder leaving a beautiful raised embossed sunflower.  To watercolor the image I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks and a Waterbrush.  For the flowers I used Squeezed LemonadeFossilized Amber, and Wild Honey.


To color the leaves and stems I used Twisted CitronMowed Lawn, and Peeled Paint.


For the background I did some ink blending using the Mini Ink Blending Tools and Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks - Fossilized AmberPeeled Paint, and Broken China.  I thought this would be a pretty color combination for the background.


I used the Distress Sprayer to add some water droplets to the background.  I let it sit for a few seconds and then used a paper towel to blot up the water and used a heat tool to dry the paper.  I also used Walnut Stain Distress Inks to add some brown splatters on the card which you will see in the picture below.


I used the coordinating die Stamp Simply Steel Dies - Sunflower SS-DIE003Sunflower SS-DIE003 to die cut the sunflower.  It's so nice to have the coordinating dies and not have to fussy cut the image lol.  I added Foam Tape to the back of the sunflower for some dimension.


I stamped the word sunflower using Walnut Stain ink and then I stamped over it a second time using VersaMark Ink.  Doing this allows me to add Clear Embossing Powder and heat emboss the word.  Then I used the coordinating die to cut the word out.  I added some Foam Tape to the back of the word die cut and then adhered that to the card front at the bottom of the flower stem.


To finish off the card I added a bow using some of the May Arts - Yellow Burlap String and then I added a few My Mind's Eye - Record It! Charmed Enamel Dots.  The card front was mounted to a white A2 top folding card base.

I hope you enjoyed my first card for the day.  Don't forget to check back this evening to see the second card.  Also check out the Stamp Simply Blog to see all of the card inspiration from the New 2017 Summer Release.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
