Celebrate Sunflowers - Thank You Swap

This is the first card I made using the new Celebrate Sunflowers set.  I did it for a swap this month.  I used the new In-Colors to create it which is Bumble Bee and Just Jade cardstock.  The base of the card is Soft Suede.  I ran the sunflower through the new Tasteful Textile after die cut it out.  I did the same with second layer.  I sponged the edges with Soft Suede.  
Here is my instructions:


Stamp Set:  Celebrate Sunflowers #152517 (Page 13 of 2020-21 AC)
Bundle:  #154065 for $51.25 on page 175
Cardstock:  Soft Suede #115318, Bumble Bee #153077, Just Jade #153079
Ink:  Soft Suede #147115, Garden Green #102584
Other:  Die Cutting Machine, Sunflower Dies #152704, Tasteful Textile 3D Folder #152718, (N) Adhesive Sheets #152334, Sponge #141337, Multipurpose Glue #110755, Dimensionals #104430, Wink of Stella #141897

1.     The base of the card is Soft Suede cardstock cut at 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”and scored at 4-1/4” in the middle.
2.    The second layer is Bumble Bee cardstock cut 4” x 5-1/4” and inserted into the 3D folder and run through the die-cutting machine.  Then ink up the edges with a Sponge and Soft Suede ink.  Adhere to the base card with Multipurpose Glue.
3.    Cut a 3-1/2” x 3-1/2” square of Soft Suede cardstock.
4.    Ink up two large leaves on Just Jade cardstock using Garden Green ink.  Die cut with the Sunflower Dies (leaf).  Adhere to the square with Multipurpose Glue in the top left corner and the bottom right corner.  Use Wink of Stella.
5.    With the outline die of the sunflower and using Bumble Bee cardstock, die cut the base of the sunflower.  Then insert it into the Tasteful Textile 3D Folder and run it through the die-cutting machine.  Sponge the edges of Soft Suede ink.
6.    Next use the detailed overlay sunflower die using the Bumble Bee cardstock.  I used an adhesive sheet for the backing so it is easier to adhere to the base of the sunflower.
7.    Die cut the center using Soft Suede cardstock and the Sunflower Die.  Adhere with a Dimensional.  Add Wink of Stella to the center of the sunflower. 
8.    Attach Dimensionals to the back of the sunflower and attach to the Soft Suede square over the leaves.

Celebrate Sunflowers - Stampin' Blends

Here is another Celebrate Sunflowers card that I made.  I'm just having so much fun using this stamp set, I haven't started using my other pre-order stamp sets yet.  On this one, I used the Stampin' Blends and does it look like I've added extra layers to give it dimension?  No, I didn't but I love how this card turned out using the Stampin' Blends. The Stampin' Blends will be sold as combos instead of individually starting June 3, so the codes will be different starting then.  I used the new label called Lovely Labels Pick a Punch too.  The Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine will not be able when the new catalog begins, but sometime soon.

When I was able to view the preorder for demos, the stamp set "Celebrate Sunflowers" was one of the first stamp sets I fell in love with.  I've made a few cards with it, and although this is the third card I've made using this set, I decided to post it first.  This set can be purchased as a bundle because it has Sunflower Dies to go with it.
