Stamped Sunflower Card

Hello crafty friends,
I hope you are enjoying a great day and maybe even enjoying some crafting. Today I am sharing another card I created with a couple CTMH stamps. Before I share my project, for those that are following along with the counting of the Omer and reading along with me, here is today's reading.


9 How can a young man cleanse his way?

By taking heed according to Your word.
10 With my whole heart I have sought You;
Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments!
11 Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.
12 Blessed are You, O Lord!
Teach me Your statutes.
13 With my lips I have declared
All the judgments of Your mouth.
14 I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies,
As much as in all riches.
15 I will meditate on Your precepts,
And contemplate Your ways.
16 I will delight myself in Your statutes;
I will not forget Your word.
Psalm 119: 9-16
Blessings as you read and meditate on His Word.

So now onto my card for today.

Here’s a look at my completed card. It is an A2 (4.25 x 5.5) size. I started by taking a piece of Kraft cardstock and stamping the stripes using the In the Background stamp. I used Chocolate inkI then repeated this step on a smaller mat.

I set those aside and began working on my flower. I stamped several petals in Crème Brule ink and used one of the “petal” stamps from the Just for you set. I created SVG die cut files for this set so stamping several at a time and having them pre-cut was fast and easy.

I created the base by using a 1 1/2” circle. I positioned the petals as pictured above.

I then added another set of petals underneath the first four and placed them offset as pictured above. I set this layer aside.

Next I took a 1 1/2” circle and stamped to create the center of my flower. I started by using the circle stamp in the stamp set and inking it with Chocolate ink. I stamped in the center of the circle. See photo above.

Next I stamped on the top and bottom of the circle. See photo above.

Then I stamped on each side of the bottom stamped image. See photo above.

I repeated the last step on the sides of the top stamped image and this completed the center. After stamping. I added petals to this circle in the same fashion as the base layer. There should be a total of 8 petals on this layer.

To complete the flower, I simply layered the stamped image layer flower set on top of the bottom larger layer. This gives you a total of 16 petals and makes the flower nice and full.

Once the flower was completed, I added some stamped leaves and adhered it to the card.

I added a sentiment and used my EK photo corner punch to punch out some photo corners. I just used the same center circle stamp and stamped on some cardstock and then punched the photo corners out. This gave the photo corners an extra decorative touch.

Here is one last look at the completed card.
