We’re so happy to share this perfect little blue sunflower card today.
It was inspired by a card that Linda Dalke from our Master Stamper Design Team made recently. Linda lives in Australia and we think the world of her.
Her original card was a full sized card and slightly different. So we shrunk it down to a 4-1/4″ square card and made it with a Gray Granite base with our local stamp club members on Tuesday.
Everyone finished their cards a little bit differently. Here’s how we finished ours.
Our favorite size to make a square card is 4-1/4″ because it fits into a standard envelope and doesn’t cost extra postage to mail.
Just so you know: square cards in square envelopes require extra postage.
Blue Sunflower Card Making Tips
- Here are the colors we used:
- Misty Moonlight
- Night of Navy
- Gray Granite
- Whisper White
- Stamp in Night of Navy onto Misty Moonlight card stock.
- Once it’s dry, use a Blender pen to apply Whisper White Craft Ink to the sunflower petals – avoiding the outside lines.
- Let the painted area dry before you assemble the card.
You’ll find over 300 paper crafting projects on our site we call the Master Stamper where you can learn to make cool cards like this. The exclusive projects all come with tutorial videos and almost all of them have written instructions.
There’s also an optional Master Stamper private Facebook group where you can share your own cards and papercrafting projects. It’s included in your membership. We understand that not everyone is on Facebook so all the projects are housed in our password protected site.
You can try Master Stamper here. See how you like it! We bet that you will! And we’d love to have you!
The greeting and the punch we used with it are a bundle that we’ve got on special this month. Purchase the Lovely You bundle and we’ll add two project tutorials to everything else we send all our online shoppers.
See it there on the right?
That’s 6 tutorials! Or 8 if you get two of the bundles shown. Or 10 if you get all three bundles shown. Why? Because we give all our online shoppers 4 tutorials.
NOTE: We’re getting a new shopping cart and online store in August 4, 2020 when the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog is made public. Once that opens, previous links to our individual products may not work as expected. To make that transition easier, the item shown below will take you to the online store instead of the individual product. (We’ll change back to the normal way of doing things as soon as they get everything in its right place.) Until then, thank you for your patience.
Here are just some of the items we used:
