Monday's DT Girls


I'm starting off with the Sunflower Set from Dina Kowal.
Dina has created a multi-stamping flower set that has so much detail yet very easy to use!
The clear set has many options for creating wonderful sunflowers, leaves and combinations for bouquets.
For my card I have kept it very simple. The flower was stamped with two shades of yellow and a Kraft Ink. I used two different stamps on the leaves.
The sentiment that I used is also a part of this lovely set!

Thanks for looking and on with the hop!

  • Stamps: Impression Obsession-WP639 Sunflower Set
  • Inks: MFT-Lemon Chiffon, Daffodil, Kraft, Sour Apple, Jelly Bean Green, Chocolate Brown
  • Papers: Neenah 110, Bazzill hw, doodlebug- limeade daisy-stripe, kraft

  2. I noticed the subtle layer shifting on various colors and that's cool. The gingham bow just makes the card over the top cute! Happy hop.
