Here is my first card:
Here is a detail shot:
I used the Sweet Surprise Card Kit centers and card for this one.  I stamped the large sunflower three times and cut each into sections after removing the center.  Then I glued the pieces around the center filled cup.  I used the small sunflower matted with two different card stock papers at 1/4" increments to create a sticker to back the cup on the inside.

Here is the second card:
A little tone on tone stamping for the base and a couple of scrap strips provide the base for this label and a few Art Philosophy die cuts.  Finish it off with a button and here you have a very easy card.

  1. Very clever! Beautiful cards:)

  2. I wanted to add that brown jelly beans or M & M's would fill the cup perfectly!

  3. Thank you for sahring your ideas. I really like the outlined stamp.

  4. Adeline: I want to try another card with mini M&M's, I think it would be cute. I wish I had some candy coated sunflower seeds on hand to put in this finished card. I put the lifesavers in this card because I made it for my best friend who helped me out at our crab festival this weekend. She came in and helped me move haul garbage - now that is a true friend (and she definately was a "lifesaver" as I had six people cancel meeting their commitment to work). Thanks for the ideas!

  5. I love the layering and curling of the petals to add some more dimension, great job!

  6. Beautiful cards Susan!! I am so inspired by them both! :)


I appreciate your feedback - it helps me grow!
