Simon Says Stamp Sunflower Stem

Hi stamping friends, welcome back and hope you’re having a great day.  Today I’m playing with my favorite item from the Stamptember release, the Simon Says Stamp Sunflower Stem Die.

I saw the card that Shari Carroll created for the roll out and knew I wanted to case it.  This die is super fun, it cuts the outline 3 times, which leaves this beautiful outline around the image and allows you to take out each leaf and petal to color – whoo hoo!

  • I started by cutting out two of the die cuts, one  all the way through in Ranger Distress Watercolor paper, and one partial in SSS Ultra Thick White, that I used as my base to build on.
  • Take out all the little pieces being careful to keep them in order so you know what color to paint them.
  • I used my Gansai Tambi watercolors to color them.
  • I glued the outline die image on top of the base image and then added each of the painted pieces back in.  Doesn’t it make just a fabulous image, LOVE IT so much.

  • For the background I sprayed Pixie spray on the back of the Faceted Stripes Stencil and laid it over a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 piece of white card stock.
  • Using my Life Changing brushes, I added SSS Fossil Ink over the entire piece.  I love the abstract lines in this design and I think it works really well with the outlined in the die cut.
  • The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp “Messages for Everyday” and I white heat embossed that on a scrap of black card.
  • Finally, I embellished with a few gold sequins from “Spring Flowers”.
