Get Well Sunflower Card



Hi bloggers!  Today's video will show you a couple of ways to use the Sunflower die set and the Stitched Hills so you can extend them both.














 The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Beautiful sunshine card to help someone feel better.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning again Sue. The sunflower is one flower that always brings a smile into our life so why not send a card like this to someone who feels under the weather. It's bright and cheerful and would bring happiness to a poorly friend or family member. Looking forward to watching what Lisa does with your dies today ☺
Sending Saturday hugs your way xxx

Such a cheerful card xx

Donita Naylor said...

Pretty cool that we can make a stencil for skies from our hills and clouds set. And pretty cool,that those beads will take on the color of whatever paper is underneath, so we don't have to buy beads in many colors.

I love how the seeds of real sunflowers make geometric patterns.

The size of Get Well Soon on this card really makes me appreciate the new mini word sets of this launch.

Enjoy your Saturday, everybody.

Good Morning Sue and all the Crafty followers,
What a happy card. Sun flowers are a great flower to add to a Get Well as no flower looks so sunny. I love the use of the hills and clouds also. I will aim for a smaller version of your beautiful card as unfortunately this is the time of year these cards are called for.
Have a great day,

julie laz said...

Hi sue, I’m loving the sunflower card, as soon as I seen it the memories came straight back to me where me and my three children would plant a seed each and have a competition who could grow the biggest sunflower, so we got them 3 pots with their names on, so no cheating lol
they looked after the watering and feeding of there own sunflower 🌞 and then the winner would win a prize, so sunflower 🌻 means more to me than any other flower.
Thank you for my memory sue,
I’m also loveing the shows on Hochanda and missing out on your Dies as there all selling out so fast, got most of your Dies but I missed out on the beautiful beaded flowers 💐 so gutted, anyway sorry about the long message, big crafty hugs Julie laz xxx

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, this lovely, bright and cheerful card is just what is needed on this dull, damp & dismal day. I love the sunflowers and treating them to micro beaded centres makes them so much more realistic. Great video and good to see it is not a failure if you have to resort to a craft knife when cutting through more thicknesses of card. You didn't say where the sentiment came from - there is the 'soon' that I would be looking for :-)

HI Sue. WOW, WOW, WOW !!! This is a FABUOLUS card !!! I love your fab video to. I think you just can't get much better than giving someone who is under the weather a "get well soon" card with these GORGEOUS sunflower dies on !!! To me Sunflowers stand for bright, happy, sunshiny, stunning, spring / summer flowers. A flower that cheers everyone up, and never fails to make you smile !!! I love the idea of using micrbeads for the centres of the sunflowers. It makes them look so much more realistic. Thank you for sharing this fab card Sue. Lots of love to you Sue from Tres X X X

Marie from Longridge said...

Good morning Sue and all Wilsonettes.

I'm actually surprised that I like your card so much because sunflowers are NOT my favourite flowers. You are a great teacher Sue and I have learned so much from this blog with you at the helm.
Carmen-Dorothy, I especially love getting your daily hugs from Toronto as I lived in Canada from 1986 until 2010 first in Huntsville and then in Minden and became a proud Citizen along the way.
I'm trying to find a video (hopefully from you Sue) on shaker cards as I'm in the middle of making one and have forgotten the next step.
I'm off to have fun looking at my new dies.
Love to all.
