Simple Sunflower Card

Hello everyone! Thought I'd post my possible last post before I really try and get some work done for my exams.

Anyway, I had to make a card. I couldn't let my last PTI order sit around until I finished my exams. I just had to rip into them! Haha.

I was going to use my long-awaited Autumn Acorns set first... but ideas ran flat the moment I got them in my hands.

So something else it is. This card started off with me just testing out the Fresh Snow ink pad. Boy, are they juicy!!! Just cleaning them frosted my stamp cleaning pad white lol However, they stamp beautifully! I shall never go back to my Tsukineko Moonlight White ink pad ever again lol


I was initially tossing whether to get Edgers #3 or not as well, but after having used it once, I now officially love it! :D

Anyway, I will stop procrastinating now. Medicine is consuming my life slowly, but I shall return in 2-3 weeks. I do have a couple other cards saved up in case I feel like blogging, but in the mean time, take care and thanks for popping by!

PS - After reading Joyce's comment, I do realise that the Mat Stack #3 cut out window does look a little like a cardstock stuck on top as well. A mystery card lol The sunlight hit between the front and back giving that look. It's just a hole through the card with the die cut for clarification. Sentiment was stamped inside the card :)

STAMP: PTI Simple Sunflower, Heartfelt Basics, Background Basics: Text Style
INK: PTI Fresh Snow, SU! Daffodil Delight, Wasabi Green, Early Espresso, Calypso Coral

What a sweet card. I love how you used the edgers die on the bottom. That is such a great die. Trying to figure out is that is a window cut into your card or cardstock glued on. A mystery. Anyway, good luck with all your exams. See you when you have a chance.

Love the mat stack window and the edger die. Beautiful card, Euna!
All the best for your exams. See you in 3 weeks then. Study well :)

This is beautiful, Euna! I just got the Edgers #3 die and love it, too!
I find with stamping with fresh snow that I will clean my stamps in the sink-- I never found my stmap cleaner did a good enough job.

Love all the elements of this beautiful card; the edging at the bottom, the text stamped in fresh snow, the sunflowers and the two tone sentiment

I agree with Leigh about cleaning your stamps after using Fresh Snow. I love how the sunlight peeks through the die cut. It really is fabulous. And best of luck with exams!

Oh wow! This si magnificent. I love, love, love, the edger used here. The lighting in/of your picture is pretty magical too. It looks as if the aperture has bee especially lit.

I also just run the stamp under the tap to clean as the white/cream can be a total nightmare. If it's not convenient to get to the sink to rinse the stamp, I just give it a good going over with a baby wipe first before heading to my scrubbing pad.
