Gotta love foiling. So shiny.
This product, called Graphic Sunflowers, is a Gina K. designed product for Therm-O-Web in the Stamp ‘n’ Foil line. If you haven’t seen how Stamp ‘n’ Foil works, check out Gina’s quick video here- Stamp ‘n’ Foil Video. It is a simple process, but it can be confusing without any initial guidance.
Foil-Mates are the printed images that can be foiled through a laminator. The coordinating stamp set will either stamp an outline or a fill on the printed Foil-Mates images. This creates a fully stamped and foiled image that can be cut with the coordinating dies. Voila!
See the shiny-ness that you too can achieve below:
I pre-stamped and foiled so many of these images for the last Stamp ‘n’ Foil release with the intent to make cards and post in the hop, but I was too busy with wedding planning to keep up with the cards. Because the flowers were all ready to go, it was quick pulling a card together.
(By the way, see a wedding update below!) 😍
I think this is such a cute, sweet card. It has a springtime vibe to it, which is not really appropriate for this time of year. Oops. The ink colors I used were Gina K. Designs ink in Sweet Corn, Dusty Rose, Innocent Pink, and Peach Bellini. This is my all time favorite peachy-pink palette with Gina K. The foil I used was Gina K. Designs and Therm-O-Web Fancy Foil in Bubblegum. It is hard to identify the foil color in the picture.
This cute little fence die cut is from the Gina K. die collection. I took a piece of Kraft cardstock and scraped a Kraft ink pad over it a few times, and then repeated in Dark Chocolate (just a little bit) for more dimension.
If you are wondering where my stems came from, I used a couple of Tombow Dual Brush Pens to create them. Neither color was just right for the ink on the leaves, so I combined the colors! Gotta love innovating. I colored some of the darker color, 158, onto a piece of plastic. Then I took the brighter color, 195, to pick up some of that darker ink with the bullet tipped end of the pen. It created the perfect color for those stems.
I couldn’t resist making one more card with these darling sunflowers! (I still have more ready for even more cards!) For this card, I wanted the look of a sunflower patch on a hilly meadow. I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hills die set to create the hills out of Gina K. Designs Grass Green cardstock. For the stems, I used the same stiched hills dies, but cut them very close together to make strips.
Now I just have to think of someone who brightens my day enough to give them this card I worked so hard to create.

We had a blast. Everyone worked so hard to make our wedding special, and we were so grateful for all the amazing people who attended. Our honeymoon was so relaxing, and Colorado was beautiful! One of the most amazing places we saw was Garden of the Gods. We bought so many souvenirs that our suitcases were overweight on the flight back!
Thank you for stopping by!
