Birthday Sunflowers

Last spring at the Adventures in Stamping show, I bought several stamp sets from Heartfelt Creations that had matching Spellbinders Dies for cutting them out. There was a demo at the booth that showed how to make a template to line up with the stamped image so that the cutting came out just right. I finally got a chance to play around with those stamps and die cuts.

This card is made from brown, yellow and turquoise solid papers. The turquoise panel is embossed with the Dot embossing folder by Darice. The sentiment panel and mat are cut from Spellbinders' Labels Nine Nestabilities and the flowers are Aztec Gold Sunflowers by Heartfelt Creations cut with Spellbinders' Blossom 2 Nestabilities. The flowers and sentiment panel are accented with chalk. For the centers of the flowers I used leftover, dried out, coffee grounds mixed with glitter. The sentiment is from The Angel Company's Trendy Greetings stamp set.
