One Die, Two Different Flowers

I used the beautiful Spellbinders Sunflowers and Ladybugs die set, to make a card with a sunflower...and then used it to make a card with a daisy!...
I have combined both cards with the same Simon Says Stamp sentiment die, but with different backgrounds.
I started out by using it as it was intended, as a sunflower.  I die cut three of the petals, and then used a scoring tool, to make lines in some of the petals and bend some of them, giving the flower some added interest and dimension.  I did the same with the leaves.  The center is made up of little star type die cuts that I used an old Stampin Up piercing pad to push each in the center with a rounded piercing tool, and make them slightly rounded.  I then adhered them to the center, first using some glue dots, and with the ones on the outer places, just plain glue.  I chose a pretty new Simon embossing folder, with sunflowers, for the background.  I added the layered sentiment and popped up the panel on the card.  Here's a close up...

Then, I thought...hmmm...if I just make the petals white and the center smaller and yellow, I could make a I tried it...
I made it just like the first, except for the background. At the end, I decided I liked it with no leaves...I liked all the wonderful white with just the pop of yellow, so no leaves.  The background was done with a light gray paper, and the My Favorite Things Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots background stamp. I stamped with versamark and white embossed.  I used my Misti and made sure that I swiped the paper with my static bag before stamping and embossing.  Here's a close up...
Okay, not going to lie, these cards were fun to make and they make me happy!  Hope you are having a great middle-of-the-week day!  
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!! Hugs!! Lisa


  1. Wow! That's impressive thinking...actually like the daisy more than the sunflower, but both are great! Interesting how different the flowers are with just a change of color and smaller center.... thanks for being so creative!

  2. LOVE the sunflower! Love them both actually.
