Autumn Sunflowers

Hello friends! Hope you are having a great day, I am totally exhausted!! Yesterday I volunteered at my daughter's class to go to the Salmon Hatchery, it was fun helping with all the kids, but exhausted at the same time. I am thinking I may take a nap later ;)

Anyways, today, I want to show you a card I made using the sunflower and sentiment from "Prim Blessings Set" and  one of  the "Decorative Plaques Dies" and coordinated "Decorative Frames", all of them from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

The sketch comes from courtesy of the "The Sweet Stop". Submitting this project to "The Ribbon Carousel: Halloween/Fall"

Here are the details:
  • Make card base from Ivory cardstock. A2 size.
  • Cut a piece of Kraft cardstock (5" x 3.75"), add pieces of Patterned paper, distress and ink all edges, add stitches. Add panel to card base.
  • Stamp image on Watercolor paper in Jet Black Archival Ink. Color it with Inktense Pencils (Derwent), cut it out. Add Crystal Lacquer to center and sprinkle clear glitter. Set aside to dry.
  • Die-cut a frame from Ivory Cardstock, stamp coordinated border in Memento Tangelo Ink.
  • Stamp sentiment on Ivory Cardstock in Coffee Archival Ink, cut it out. Add twine and tie it around frame. Add sunflower to frame.
  • Add frame to card base. Add pearls to opposite corners.

Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day.  


  1. Grogeous card Giovana. Love the pretty sunflower with the touch of sparkle. The plaque looks great... aslo like the stiching. Thanks for playing along with us at The Sweet Stop this week. :)

  2. I love how you have used the plaque behind your sunflower Giovana! Your stitched panels, which you have also distressed, look so effective. This card is a great take on this week's sketch - thanks so much for joining us at the Sweet Stop this week!

  3. Gorgeous! Love the distressing and stitching! You definitely deserve to be one of this week's Spotlight Cards at The Sweet Stop.

  4. This card is absolutely gorgeous! I couldn't possibly pick one thing I like best about it! Congrats on being a Spotlight Card--you sure deserve it!
