Just a Note Blog Hop Day 2!

I am so excited and thrilled to be a part of today's Simon Says Stamp Blog Hop over at the Simon Blog!  I am, with a wonderful group of artists, helping celebrate the new Just a Note release!  I have used the beautiful new Super Sunflower Plate and the Retro Wishes stamp/die set sentiments, to make three cards using the plate die and sentiments in some different ways...

I love sunflowers!  This die has beautiful sunflowers and is so versatile!  The sentiments are such a cool font and come with dies, so they are a perfect fit for me and for these cards!...
This first card, I simply die cut the plate, colored with markers, and adhered to a piece of light gray cardstock!  I chose to layer the frame with two more layers, of  simply the frame.  To do this, I hand cut the flowers and leaves off of the frame, adhered the frames together, and adhered them to the full, colored plate, keeping all the flowers and leaves to create more cards with!   I added the sentiment, that I had stamped with two shades of brown ink...the darker first, then a bunch of stamping with the lighter shade(all done in my MISTI).  I layered it, and adhered. I also gently bent the petals of the flowers to give them some dimension...love that about the design of these flowers and leaves!   Here's a close up....

Then, I took the "leftovers" of the first card, plus one more die cut plate, and made two more cards..
For this first one, I used two of the flowers from the plate for each sunflower.  I used the leaves from the right side of the plate die, one set of leaves for each flower.  I colored, layered, bent the petals, and then adhered to a split panel of white with a sentiment from the same set as the first, and a scrap piece of cardstock with embossed lines.  Here's a close up...

The other "leftover" is my kind of clean and simple...
I used one of the flowers from the plate die, with a stem and a leaf, and used a second one to layer on top of it.  I die cut a circle on a panel, and stamped yet another of the pretty sentiments from the Retro Wishes stamp set.  I poppe up the panel on the card and adhered the flower into the circle!  Here's a close up...
Okay...I had SO much fun!!  My fun was above, your fun is below!!

    Lisa, I would not have thought of layering the frame and what a good idea that is. I like the bit of brown embossed paper on the one card, like the flowers on the white background best and feel that all three cards are just great!

  87. I really like those sentiment stamps, but I can’t bring myself to buy a set that has such a glaring grammatical error! (So Much Thanks when it should be So Many Thanks or So Much Gratitude). I’d never be able to use that stamp and seeing it on the sheet would annoy me so much!
