Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Spotlight Card

These are the cards I made on this week’s Facebook Live video.  You can watch the replay on YouTube or on Facebook.  A warning – the FB version’s first couple of minutes are full of me dealing with a noisy, off-camera puppy.  I’ve cut that out on the YouTube version, but FB’s editing tools don’t play nicely with me, LOL.

This week I decided to use the spotlight technique with the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set to make some thank-you cards for my October customers.  I used my Stamparatus to easily stamp multiples of my image and sentiment, and then coloured them with a variety of Stampin’ Blends Markers.


I love the pop of colour on each one!  The centre panel is 7 x 10 cm, or approximately 2 ⅝” x 4″ (double-check to be sure your desired sentiment fits!).  The Basic Black mat is 0.5 cm (or ¼”) larger on each side.  

​To keep the layers together while stamping I put a small amount of Stampin’ Seal (or SNAIL) on the back of the little layer, then pressed it a few times against my jeans to pick up some lint so it wouldn’t be so sticky.  Another option is to gently use your Embossing Buddy.
