Creative Inspiration of the Week

Sunflower Tag
Products Used:
Sunflower Stem PreCut Set
Sunflower Patch PreCut Set
Classic Sunflower PreCut Set
Classic Sunflower Paper Collection
Zip Dry Paper Glue
Art Institute Glue - Dries Clear
Metal Glue Tip - Art Institute
Grand Calibur
Paper Blossoms Molding Mat
Paper Blossoms Tool Kit

Project Instructions:

Other Products: Ink, Tag Foam Tape, Copic Marker, Water Spritzer, small circle punch.

Instructions: Cover the base of the tag with solid designer paper from the collection and ink the edges. You will want to punch out a small hole lined upwith the hole for the base tag or create a hole at the top if your base tag does not have one. Next cut a strip of paper 2 1/2" to 3" in width and attach to the tag. Trip along the top and bottom and sand any excess edges to make it all neat and crisp. Sunflower TagNext stamp the Sunflower Stem stamp randomly over the card. Color in the leaves with green Copic Markers. Next fussy cut out the butterfly from the designer paper pack and lay to the side. Cut out the small panel from paper pack and stamp the sentiment onto the panel lining it up. Mount onto green decorative paper with foam tape and then mount to the right top side of the tag as shown. Next stamp the Sunflower stamp on yellow/golden card stock. Color the centers of the flowers with a red/brown color copic and then color the middle of each petal with a golden color copic and then leave the edges plain. This will give the shading effect on each of the flowers/petal. Cut out all the flowers with the match dies. I stamped, colored and cut three sets of flowers. Next spritz water over all the petals and then crumple the petals and let dry. If you are in a hurry you can use a heat gun to speed up the drying. You can use your flower tool once the petals are dry to cup the centers of some of the flower petals. Layer the flower petals and then glue together with Dries Clear Glue. You want to create 9 flowers in varying sizes. Attach to your tag as shown. Next add the butterfly to the edge of the sentiment. Finally attach ribbon to the top of the tag to finish off.

Project Instructions:

Other Products: Paper: White, Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, Daffodil Delight, Baked Brown Sugar cardstock; Ink: Sepia Ranger Archival Ink, Versamark, Distress Ink: Vintage Photo, Tea Dye, Aged Mahogany, Spiced Marmalade, Forest Moss, Peeled Paint; Perfect Pearls Sunflower Sparkle Mist; Paint: Warm Honey, Scattered Straw Distress Paint; Other: Clear Embossing Powder, Rhinestones, 1/2" brass brads, Ribbons, Buttons, Gold Thread, Small paper bag, Shaped edge ruler, hole punch, Binding rings, two small craft bags (dimensions below).

Classic Sunflower Mini AlbumInstructions: Cut 7 pieces of medium weight chipboard to the following sizes: 8 1/4" x 6", 9" x 6", 9 3/4" x 6", 10 1/2" x 6", 11 1/4" x 6", 12" x 6", 12 3/4" x 6". Punch holes 1/2" in from left side at 1/2", 3", and 5 1/2”. Use the Distress Paints to paint the edges of the chipboard, going in about 1" on all sides. When dry, use a cosmetic sponge to apply the Copper Stamp Paint in a tapping motion. Cut 2 pieces of Chocolate Chip Cardstock in the following sizes: 7 1/4" x 5 1/2", 8" x 5 1/2", 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", 9 1/2" x 5 1/2", 10 1/4" x 5 1/2", 11" x 5 1/2", 11 1/2" x 5 1/2". These will be the mats for each page. Glue into the album, just to the right of the punched holes. Cut 2 each from the Classic Sunflower Paper Collection: 7" x 5 1/4", 7 3/4" x 5 1/4", 8 1/2" x 5 1/4", 9 1/4" x 5 1/4", 10" x 5 1/4", 10 3/4" x 5 1/4", 11 1/2" x 5 1/4". You may use a shaped edge ruler to tear some edges to add variety to your pages, if desired. On some pages, leave either the right or left hand of the page unglued so that you can insert tags or photos into this space. Center on your Chocolate Chip Mats, and glue down.

Use Sepia Archival ink on Daffodil Delight paper to stamp 4 sets of the Classic Sunflower PreCut Set. Heat emboss with Clear embossing powder and die cut. Sponge the flowers with Aged Mahogany and Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink on both front and back. Spritz with Perfect Pearls Sunflower Sparkle. Shape and stack. Add buttons or gems to centers. Set aside to use in the book. Use Forest Moss Distress Ink to stamp a variety of leaves onto white cardstock. Heat Emboss with Clear Embossing powder and die cut. Color in with Peeled Paint Distress. Shape and set aside to use in the book.

Cut 16 tags from Baked Brown Sugar cardstock using the tag die from HCD 745. Stamp some of these tags with images from the stamp collection, leave some blank, and cover some with the decorative tags from the paper collection. Use the rounded tag from HCD 745 to cut out the matching tags in the paper collection and use these to embellish your book. Cut out stamps, journal pages, etc and use as decoration. Use the Cut, Mat Create Dies to cut card fronts and mats to use as decorations in the album. Use a craft knife to cut a slit in the Sunshine in my Soul today page so that you can slip tags into a pocket there.

Paper Bag Pockets: I used 2 different sized bags: One measures 5" x 8" and one measures 6" x 9 1/2". To fit them to the book, I folded the base of the envelope upwards so that the bottom of the bag was about 1" below the bag opening. I then flipped the bag over, and folded the top of the bag down about 1/2" from the bottom seam of the bag. I lined the pocket and covered the front flap with paper from the collection and then sewed the sides and bottom shut to form a pocket. This was glued into the book and filled with photo mats and tags. Use the Cut, Mat, Create dies and colored cardstock to cut photo mats to fit the pages. You can use my book as a guide, or create your own grid. Leave some open edges so that you can tuck in tags. Use your prepared flowers and leaves to decorate the mini album as you desire. Bind with "O" rings and tie ribbons on the rings to finish the project.

Sunflower Welcome Sign
Products Used:
Delicate Asters PreCut Set
Classic Sunflower PreCut Set
Delicate Asters Die
Classic Sunflower Die
Classic Sunflower Paper Collection
Art Institute Glue - Dries Clear
Spring Bling Prills

Project Instructions:

Other Products: Brown Card Stock, Letters cutout using my Cameo in ivory Card Stock, Distressed Inks, Ribbon and glitter from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions: Click here for a larger project image. Start by cutting six layers for the base of the sign out of Brown Card Stock. This will give your sign lots of strength. Cut two layers in the same size and then the next two a little smaller and finally the last two a bit smaller again so you have a nice layered effect. I made my layers in all the same color brown cardstock but if I were to do it again I think I might add a contrasting color to show the layering effect. For the shape, I made my own template that you can download here. Next select a piece of paper from the collection that you would like to use for the sign and cut it again making it smaller than the last 2 layers of Brown and glue them all together. I cut out the welcome letters using my cutting machine so once they have been cut take the letters and attach them to the sign before you start to decorate. For the rooster, I simply fussy cut out of the pre-made image included in the paper collection. Stamp, distress and die cut out some of the lovely Classic Sunflowers, assemble and finish it off in the center with some Spring Bling Prills! Display proudly and enjoy!

Shape the flowers, I use 3 of the same size pinching the edge and pulling up slightly. After the can is completely dry, apply the lace at the top, start arranging the flowers and leaves and adhere.

This another amazing collection. It reminds me of the many farms we visited when we went apple picking or just getting fresh farm produce. Love the sunflowers and fall colors. Thank you for bring this collection to all of us crafters.

LOVE this latest collection!!! I had so many "favorites" from your Design Team...but one stands out for me...the sunflower in the jeans pocket. Lovely! Many of your DT members made a good choice to use another leaf stamp and die when creating floral displays. The leaves on the die are not the right shape for sunflowers. Love the flower petals!
