Greetings Stampers: Today I wanted to show you the Blog Hop creation I made for Fred She Said. Our theme was "Favorite Things". One of my favorite things to make is Sunflower cards. Sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers and I grew them one time on the side of my house.
This is both the card and envelope. I layered my sunflower image 4 times for dimension and attached Micro-beads in the center. The butterflies and leaves are a Martha Stewart punch. The white flourishes are "Recollection" that I picked up in the clearance section of Michael's. The tiny sunflowers I made with a small daisy EK Success punch. The centers I also found in the clearance section at Michael's some time ago.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a happy crafty weekend!
Punch Count: 33

I might have known - you again! I need to just bookmark your page and check THAT one every day. This is gorgeous and I don't even particularly care for sunflowers! Think I'll try it with some of the other floral stamps that I have. Don't suppose you'd like to vacation at my house for a week or so? You're the greatest (and here I thought I was *laughing*). You need to publish a book! Oh, and thanks for the napkin fold tutorial. I could hardly wait for it to come out Wednesday and now I'm ordering some new border punches and pretty papers to do some of them. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Bearzi, you stopped putting the time that it takes to make your cards, but methinks that this would take me a week to get the fussy cutting done! Then the stickles, microbeads and pearls...and punchez??? I love every element of this beauty - the stitching, the PATP, the papers and how you bring form and color together. You are my hero. Hugz for all of your inspiration.
My time is not mine to have, but mine to share Proud Fan Club member Marzi, Punchkateer Apprentice - why use 1 when you can use 2? or 8?
