 Hello and welcome to my blog today. 

Today I am taking part in an Artist Appreciation Blog Hop with other Demonstrators around the world.  We are all showcasing projects that have been inspired by our favourite artists, 

To follow the hop, click through the list below and why not leave a comment. 

I have chosen to create my project using the sunflowers image from the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set as a nod to the incredible Vincent Van Gogh and his classic Sunflowers painting. 

To create my card, I have added layers of cardstock to my card front (see measurements further down), some that has been embossed using the Brick and Mortar Embossing Folder and another that has been die-cut from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies

For my sunflowers display, I have stamped my image using second generation Sahara Sand and coloured in with a selection of Stampin' Blends.  I have then fussy cut around and attached to the card front so they look as though they are in the vase (image comes from the Baskets in Bloom Stamp Set). 

To finish my card, I have added some Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon and a heat-embossed sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set.  I have also added a few of the Bumblebee coloured Playing with Patterns Resin Dots

The cardbase has been cut from a piece of Bumblebee Cardstock measuring 14.9cm x 21cm, scored at 10.5cm and folded in half. 


I have used the following products and tools to put this project together:
