Hey there, happy weekend to you. As promised here is More Cosmos Bloom. The second card I created with this amazing background stamp from Simon Says Stamp is colored with Copics. If you LOVE to color – (I find it SO relaxing), you are going to LOVE this stamp
Fall has crept into the air around here and my sunflowers are just thriving, one is over 8 feet tall! They inspired my color palette for today. Their beautiful sunny faces back-dropped by an amazing turquoise sky.
I shared this photo of my Sunflowers on Instagram recently:
For the sentiment, I once again used the Greetings Mix 1 stamp set, this time white embossing it on a strip of vellum so I didn’t completely cover all that beautiful coloring, haha.
I used the flicking technique for the coloring and I shared a video on that here:
- Colors for the Flowers: Copics: Y13, Y15, Y19, YR18, E77
- Leaves: G21, YG63, G94
- Background: BG05
- Flower Centers – Nuvo Crystal Drops – Dirty Bronze
Artist Tip: I colored the flower centers with Y13 before adding the Nuvo Crystal Drops, it helped to really make them pop.
TIP #2 – Most adhesive show through vellum. I like to attach it strategically with glue dots and then add embellishments on the top side to cover. Here I used Simon Says Stamp Spring Flowers Sequins.

Cosmo Bloom is a 6 x 6 red rubber stamp and it has about a 1/4″ void around the edge. I cut a 6 x 6 piece of Neenah Solar White card stock and stamp the image using my Misti just in case I have to stamp it a couple of times. Next, I color it and cut it down to what I need for the front of the card. Hating to throw out any of these bits of coloring love, I often slice up the pieces and use them on the inside of my card. Don’t you just love all matchy matchy, haha, I sure do.
