Just a quick post tonight......

Hi everyone, just thought I'd blog my latest two cards using the gorgeous Sunflower stamp.

This one is clean and simple, the stamp speaks for itself. A bit of triple embossing on the Sunflower, and a few seed beads, and voila!

I really like Clean and Simple cards, I'm not afraid to leave a lot of white showing.

This is the same stamp, done in a completely different way......stamped a few times and decoupaged.

The ribbon was dyed with a few colours of Oak House Studio inkpads

The background is just cheap copier paper, which has been soaked with water,  inked with OHS spray inks, dried then ironed!

Hope you like it 

Catch you all in a day or so with another couple of 'Sunflower' cards

Lovely, absolutely lovely. Prefer the first one ~ simple but so effective, however the decoupage one is very nice too :-D

I love to see what other people do with my designs, always gives me a warm feeling but these are great

Beautiful cards - love the decoupaged sunflower and the overall colour scheme. As long as your iron was only used for crafting, that's ok!!

Just beautiful!

Ladies, please don't worry about me......the iron was used to flatten the background paper, then carefully put back into the Utility room, never to see the light of day for at least a week or two! haha. This is the only thing an iron should be used for!

Very beautiful and so different. I can't think of a more cheerful flower than a sunflower!

Like all the different ways to use the same sunflower stamp. Hugs Mrs A.
