Hello there fellow crafters! It's Kristina again and I've got a heap of sunflower cards to share with you! My cards all use the new Harvest Blessings Deluxe card kit from Scrappy Tails Crafts to create a set of six matching cards!
I was inspired by the May 2022 Sheet load from Call me Crafty Al. Her sketch was in a vertical layout but horizontal worked better for me.
I started by stamping one of the sunflowers from the Wild Sunflowers 6x6 stamp set 6 times with black ink onto 6 watercolor panels.
Then I grabbed some Distress Inks, squished them onto my media mat, and spritzed lightly with water. Then, I used them like watercolors and colored in my sunflowers with a paint brush.
After I dried them with the heat tool, I splattered all of them with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I'm loving splatters so much right now!
Next, I cut out all of my card pieces and gathered them together. All of the patterned papers I used are from the new Harvest Blessings 6x6 paper pad.
As I started putting my layers together, I decided to ink around the edges of the sunflower images with the Walnut Stain Distress ink. I also added foam tape to the sunflower layers before adhering it on top of the various patterned paper card panels.
You can see in the pictures that I decided to add a sentiment after I put the cards together. I stamped the sentiment from the same Wild Sunflowers stamp set 6 times with Versamark ink on white card stock. Then, I sprinkled each one with gold embossing powder and melted it with my heat tool. I adhered them with liquid glue to each card.
Each one is slightly different, since the patterns are off set for each design.
Three of the six cards were mounted on a natural cream color card base and three of them were mounted on dark brown card bases. I did splatter the bases with gold paint before adding them to their card bases
On each one I also scattered a few of the orange and yellow pearls that come in the kit.
