Guest Designing at Spellbinders - Trio of Cards Using Sunflower Cool Vibes


Hello everyone! I am honoured to be guesting for one of my favourite companies, Spellbinders. Today I have three cards to share with you using just Sunflower Cool Vibes Stamp Set from the Cool Vibes Collection by Stephanie Low. I will be showing you three ways to use this stamp set.

As you can see I kept the colours same on all three cards so that it doesn’t distract you from the design. Bonus that they look nice in the photo J

First and foremost, I have to say how beautiful this stamp set is! The intricate details all stamped perfectly and crisp. I used both stamps from this set several times with Versamark on watercolour paper. I then used Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder and heat set it.

Then, my most favourite part, I ink smooshed the background using Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks. When the background was still a bit wet, I went in to drop some more of the same colours in a few places to add a bit more interest.

To add a little sparkle I rolled up some silver string, glued it on to my card front. I stamped the sentiment and popped it over the string with foam tape. I really wanted to add yellow enamel dots to my card instead of silver sequins but I ran out of them. I think the enamel dots would have looked so much better here and would’ve complimented the other two cards beautifully.

For my second card, I stamped the Sunflower twice on watercolour paper with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I then watercoloured the petals using Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks.

The flower center was coloured with a variety of yellows and greens from the distress ink family. I do love to watercolour with distress inks, they flow effortlessly. After the images were dry, I fussy cut them out and started working on my card front.

Again, I stamped the Sunflower repeatedly on to watercolour paper with Veramark and heat embossed it with Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder then heat set it. I already knew what the placement of my flowers and stamp would be, keeping that in mind I added grey watercolour to my background with varied concentration. By varied concentration I mean that the grey would appear dark in some places and light in others.

After my card front was dry, I popped my sunflowers on foam tape. I heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock added a little more foam tape on this label so that it was on a higher level than the flowers.
I played around with the placement of all three elements till I found the perfect position.

I then covered my stamped images and sentiment label with my hand (you can even use a piece of cardstock or do this step before adding the images) and added black and grey paint splatters. In the end I added a few silver sequins for the bling.
Now onto my final card.

This one too has white heat embossed images and watercolouring! I stamped both the images from this stamp set on to watercolour paper with versamark in a way that it would make a corner border. Apart from this I stamped both the images again to add to the opposite corner.

Then I watercoloured the sunflower petals with Peacock Feathers only, the center with Spiced Marmalade and the outer design with Chipped Sapphire. For the smaller medallion, I used a mix of colours. This image reminds of ceramic tiles.
After the images were dry, I fussy cut the design leaving a white border along the design.

I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and added paint splatters to my card front. I then popped up the two pieces I fussy cut on each corner and added a few sequins.
