Beautiful Sunflowers ...

Hi Everybody,

I promised to do a video tutorial on each of the Spellbinders Flower dies when I showed them on Create and Craft and I have kept to my word.

We filmed  another one today  using the Stargazer Lily and I will add that  another day.

So for this one I am using the  Sunflower and this was one of my favorites and it sold out very quickly.

This was a very simple card to make with just a couple of layered panels and some ribbon.

The  single flower is the main focal point with the addition of a pearl flourish from Want2Scrap

The little verse is one of a set from Lili of the Valley

On the show I did this in yellow and then re created it again in pink and that was very pretty so I hope you will try the flower in different colors if you added the die to your collection

Tomorrow I am  adding a  "Give Away"  that I think you will like.

But as the  last prize was  not claimed I  have to say that if you are not a  follower and you don't leave me a comment then you will not be eligible to win the prize.  You will have 48 hours to claim the prize and I will need your postal address.

If you add your name  then the  responsibility is your to  come back and check  if you are the  winner for either the  "Give Aways" or the  Friday Freebies.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  14. Hi Christina, Thank you so very much for this video! I was not real impressed with these flower dies, but have always loved Sunflowers and this video sold me (er the Sunflower dies) and this one. My thought while watching this was to add flocking to the center of the flower. Hugs Lori
