Know that You Are Loved - Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share the card I shared with my Team during my online team meeting last month.  I shared this card with them to show them how to hold a Mystery Stamping Event.  So I gave them a list of items they needed to have ready to do the event and walked them through the steps how to create the card.  This was the finished product.  Here's a look at my card.  

Tips & Tricks: 

As I mentioned I shared this on the my team online meeting last month as a training tool to help them learn to hold a mystery stamping event.  I gave them clues on what to do and walked them through how to create the card.  I told them to pick one stamp set, a punch or die set, a ribbon, and two ink colors, and gave them the card measurements.  If you have not seen a mystery stamping event they are super fun and a load of laughs.  Next time I do one which will be coming up soon make sure you follow me to know know when it is you will love it.  But back to the card.  I picked to focus on two of the new In Colors for my project.  I used Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider as my two main colors.  

My card base for my card was Cinnamon Cider and it was cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.  I added a piece of Bumblebee cardstock for a mat layer.  Then added a piece of the Flowers for Every Season DSP to the front.  Next I gave them the option to either stamp, emboss, or just add the three 1" strips of Cardstock or they could have used a coordinating DSP.  I chose to use just the cardstock strips.  The more I've looked at my card design I think if I made this card again I would stamp on the three strips to add a little more interest and texture to the card.  

I then stamped the small sunflower onto my whisper white layer in Bumblebee Classic Ink and stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso Classic Ink.  I punched this out with a 2" circle punch and added it to the card front with a couple Dimensionals.  I then finished off the card by adding a bow made with the Bumblebee Ribbon.  Thanks for dropping by today I hope you have a wonderful and safe Sunday.  If you need any of the supplies you have seen today you can pick them up in my online store.
