Sunflower Happiness

Ways to Use It #189
Card Sketch Challenge #199
Good Morning !!!
This card has very little stamping in it. As a matter of fact the challenge is to use one word sentiment in your card and that is basically what I did. I used the Die Cut envelope and tucked in the sentiment. These colros I used- Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango and Chocolate Chip were the popular colors in my recent poll for the Favorite In Colors/48 Stampin' UP colors. I must agree; these colors are great together. I also used the sketch from yesterday.

Stamps: Happiness Always
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine tango, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, DSP Kiwi Kiss and Tangerine Tango
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Charm, brads, striped grosgrain kiwi kiss ribbon
Tools: Scallop Circle punch, Small Oval punch, 1/4" circle punch, dimensionals. Big Shot, Die Cut Envelope, sticky strip

How to make the Sunflower with Scallop Circle Punch
The sunflower was done using the Scallop Circle punch. I learned this at a recent group meeting we had.
Just snip in the beginning, middle, and end of scallop.
I sponged it after using Chocolate Chip, and culred some of the snips to make that sunflower look. Decorate your center as desired.

Thanks for stopping by.

I'm going to have to try the sunflower! I just used the circle scallops for flower centers on my last project. I REALLY like the envelop idea. Quite a change from tags.

Chat...I love this flower! I also have to tell you how much I enjoy your blog. I found it purely by accident when visiting Patti Bennett's blog. I love the music that you have added to your blog, it is a great selection of soft easy listening music. I find I don't want to leave. I also loved your Silhouette Style Watch ideas used for your Open House. I am using them for inspiration for some upcoming craft shows I have. Thanks again for your willingness to share ideas & recipes and for giving from the heart (it shows in your designs)! Debbie
