Social Stamping Blog Host - New (Normal)

Welcome to the latest Social Stamping Bog Host, this week we will be sharing our creations with the theme New (Normal). Thank you to Kelly Kent for organizing another amazing blog hop and with all these amazing women. Make sure you check out everyone’s blog to see their new creations.

The theme being New well I just couldn’t go past the idea of new Stampin' Up! products which I recently received in my pre-order from the new Stampin’ Up! 2020 – 2021 Annual Catalogue. The project I’m going to show you is the new Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle. It wasn’t on my wish list at the start of seeing the Catalogue, but after seeing so many beautiful Sunflowers on Social Media. I just had to get this beautiful bundle and colour in the Sunflower with the Stampin’ Blends.

I’ve stamped the flower image in Mango Melody Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock and for the leaves are stamped in Mossy Meadow Ink.

The list of Stampin’ Blends for the flower – Mango Melody L&D, Daffodil Delight L&D, Pumpkin Pie L&D, Soft Suede L&D, Bronze and Mossy Meadow L&D. The leaves are in – Mossy Meadow L&D and Old Olive L&D. My craft desk was covered in Stampin’ Blends and it was so much fun colouring in and blending the colours together.

I wanted the flower to pop, so I used the dark wood panel of Early Espresso from the In Good Taste DSP and layered over the Early Espresso Cardstock card base.

The sentiment is from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set, using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and sealed with the Heat Tool. I’ve layered the strip of Basic Black Cardstock over a thin strip of Bumble Bee DSP, I really like the look of the new designs for the In Color 6”x6” DSP 2020-2022.  

To finish off the card, I’ve added a pressed wood leaf from the In Good Taste Elements and Linen Thread bow.

Make sure you see everyone’s creative projects with the New theme in our latest Social Stamping Blog Host.

  1. Amazing colouring! The sunflower looks great. I love how you’ve stamped the image in the Mango Melody as it shows off the colouring and shading even more.

  2. I've been dazzled by the sunflower bundle too Vicki! Such a lovely card - the sunflower is so beautiful against the dark DSP background. And superb colouring! Kelly x

  3. Beautiful colouring for your sunflower Vicki, and the Early Espresso background shows it off perfectly.

  4. Your card certainly pops against the wood background! Lovely coloured card and nice finishing with the leaf and bow!

  5. that's all gorgeous, love the colouring, love the finish on the sentiment panels, lots of lovely details. I'm leaning toward this set more and more too! I was at a friend's house yesterday and her birthday flowers included amazing sunflowers without the brown centre- they looked like those amazing disbud chrysanthemums. Amazing

  6. Beautiful pop of colour against the dark background -this is a lovely set and one I have my eye on!

  7. This is stunning, Vicki. So beautifully coloured and it really pops against the dark woodgrain background. It is such an appropriately Autumnal colour palette and feel. Love the little leaf and twine at the bottom, so beautifully detailed. Gorgeous.
