Sunflower Season

This week at Word Art Wednesday, our sponsor is Stamp Simply. Earlier this year, they were kind enough to send me two stamp sets. I have three cards to share with you today featuring the image from one of the sets and sentiments from both.

This first card uses the image from Sunflower Seasons. I stamped it with Versafine ink on some watercolor paper and then used Distress markers and a water brush to color it. I used Freshly Made Sketches #249 for my card design. Some Wink of Stella glitter marker in the center of the flower adds some sparkle. The sentiment is from the Thinking of You Rose stamp set and was heat embossed on a strip of watercolor paper.

Cardstock: Park Lane (#110 white for cardbase), Bazzill (brown), Strathmore Cold Press Watercolor Paper
Patterned Paper: Echo Park (A Perfect Autumn 6 x 6 pad)
Stamps: Stamp Simply (Sunflower Season, Thinking of You Rose)
Ink: Versafine (Onyx Black)
Distress Markers: Shabby Shutters, frayed Burlap, Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade
Tools/Embellishments: Gina Marie Designs (enamel dots), Zig Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Pen (clear), Simon Says Stamp embossing powder (clear)

I'm entering this card in the following challenge: 
Crop Stop Challenge #443 - Use item or brand from the Crop Stop online store (I used Fiskars, Tsuineko, Ranger/Distress and Bazzill.

For the next card, the sunflower image was repeatedly stamped on watercolor paper with VersaMark ink and white heat embossed. Distress inks and a water brush were used to color the image. The sentiment, also from the Sunflower Seasons stamp set was heat embossed on a piece of vellum. A kraft frame was die cut and the vellum strip was adhered behind it. Foam tape was used to raise the frame up above the water colored panel. The framed panel was matted with cardstock before being adhered to the card base. Some glossy dots finish off the card. My card design was based off a sketch by My Favorite Things (MFTWSC247).

Cardstock: Park Lane (#110 white for cardbase), Bazzill (yellow), Strathmore Cold Press Watercolor Paper, Recollections (kraft), Taylored Expressions (vellum)
Stamps: Stamp Simply (Sunflower Season)
Ink: VersaMark, Distress Ink (Fossilized Amber, Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, Ground Espresso Gathered Twig, Mowed Lawn, Lucky Clover)
Tools/Embellishments: Pink & Main Glossy Dots (silver), Simon Says Stamp embossing powder (white), My Favorite Things Die-namics (Blueprint 1, Blueprint 29)

For my last card, I kept things very simple and let one of my favorite sentiments from Sunflower Seasons take center stage. Four patterned paper rectangles were mounted on cardstock and then matted before behing adhered to the card base. The sentiment was stamped, die cut and double matted before being popped up over the patterned paper panel. It doesn't get much easier than that.

Cardstock: Park Lane (#110 white for cardbase, #65 burgundy), Bazzill (green), Georgia Pacific (white for sentiment)
Stamps: Stamp Simply (Sunflower Season)
Ink: VersaFine (Onyx Black)
Tools/Embellishments: Spellbinders Dies (Standard Circles Large and Small, Petite Scalloped Circles Large)

For those in the path of Hurricane Florence, I do hope you'll stay safe. Be careful!

I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank all those that voted for my card in the Paper Sweeties contest. Thanks to you taking the time to go vote for me, I won the contest. Here is a pic of my prize:
