I just absolutely love my Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower stamp and die set! There are so many possibilities with this and I’ve just scratched the surface.
The stamp creates an entire background image that can be used as is, or use the die to cut out the individual flowers, small leaves, and ladybugs. After stamping the image with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and embossing it with clear embossing powder, I colored the flowers with my Koh-I-Noor woodless color pencils and used a blender pen to smooth out the color.
After cutting out the flowers with the die, I did a bit of fussy cutting to clean up the petals a bit more before shaping and gluing them together. Right now I have such a HUGE mess on my scrap desk that I cannot for the life of me locate my flower shaping tools. So, I went back to basics and used the end of a pen and my small embossing stylist. I also wanted to add a bit more texture to the petals of the flowers, so I went back over them with the colored pencil without blending out the lines.
This card is made with all the same dimensions as the Vellum Sunflower card I showed you all last night. To change it up a bit I used the Cuttlebug Textile embossing folder and changed the orientation to the more traditional vertical fashion.
And here is a nice close-up of both flowers and the embossing folder.
