Making a Background with Blending Brushes and The Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set

It is so easy to create your own background using the Stampin’ Up Blending Brushes. These can be found in the Accessories & More section of the annual catalog. I love how simply elegant this card is. Let me tell you how I made it:

Dimensions & Cutting:

Basic Black cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score at 4-1/4″ . This is your card base.

Pale Papaya cardstock at 4″ x 5-1/4″.

Basic White cardstock at 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″. Cut another piece at 4″ x 5-1/4″ (this is the inside layer for your note).

Blending, Die-Cutting and More:

Using your Blending Brush and Pale Papaya ink, start making your background. I find it easier to start off the paper and work in a swirly motion. Apply as much or as little ink as you like.

Next, die-cut your sunflower using the Sunflowers Dies and Adhesive Sheets. This is really the best way to get this die-cut to lay flat. If you have not used the Adhesive Sheets yet, you really need to! They are amazing.

Die-Cut the center part of the Sunflower. I used the In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP. My favorite thing about Stampin’ Up is the color coordination.

Stamp your sentiment in the upper right hand corner.

Before you start adhering your layers, wrap a piece of the Pale Papaya ribbon around the Basic White layer.

Let’s Finish Up this Card:

Adhere all of your layers together, add some bling and this card is done!!
