I created a card using 6 sunflowers for the Just Us Girls challenge.
I used the Arrange a Wreath stamp and die set from Stampin’Up for this card. The sunflowers were created with Bumblebee cardstock and the edges inked with matching ink. The wreath is in brown tones, Crumb Cake and Early Expresso also from SU. The door was created using patterned paper from Gina K Designs and it needed a knob, so that came from Holiday Frame Filler set also by GKD.
Congratulations on reaching 600 challenges! It was fun to create a card with six of something.
I created a card to honor Rita at Split Coast Stampers as she is the Featured Stamper. I settled on a Christmas Wreath card to provide inspiration. I am posting this card to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge where embossing must be used. I used heat embossing on this card.
I used the Stampin Up Arrange a Wreath die and a Spellbinders kit called Sparkling Christmas. In the kit are patterned papers, stamps, dies, foam adhesive, and double sided adhesive. I used the patterned paper and a matching piece of cardstock from the kit for the greeting. The solid green came from SU Subtle cardstock. Here is Rita’s card where I took the inspiration: https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/3017509?&cat=500&ppuser=70873
With the current Mod Squad Challenge being pumpkins and the Double D Challenge being wreaths, I decided to combine the two. Using my MISTI made this fit a third challenge at Split Coast Stampers.
I love Susie Moore’s work and found a card she created for a blog hop a few years ago, using the GKD Autumn Wreath Builder stamp and stencil set, so I followed her design. I added acorns to my wreath where she had leaves, but she added shading to her pumpkins with alcohol markers. I have never added marker shading to inked images, so this was fun to try. I used GKD inks and Memento Rich Cocoa for the stamping. The cardstock is GKD Heavy Base White and SU Tangerine Twist. I am pretty low on other orange colored cardstock and there is 2 reams of this retired color, so it is being used heavily. The greeting is from Power Poppy Feeling Fall set which is retired, but you can find several of the images in digital form.
This is my second card to post to March ginakdesigns challenge. I used the Wreath Builder for placement of the large flowers, the flourish, and the leaves.
Stamp sets: Frame and Flowers 1 (large flower), Sending Love (flourish bud), Stippled Flowers (leaves), Birthday Blessings (sentiment, cut apart to stack). The Darice Vine embossing folder was used to add texture to the card base. The card base is SU Sky Blue and is a 5 inch square. I rounded one corner to give a bit of interest. This card is very sparkly as I used a sparkle pen to add a bit of shimmer. Here is the link for the challenge: https://www.ginakdesigns.com/2019/03/01/flower-power-our-march-month-mix-challenge/
