Crazy Crafters Blog hop with Georgia Giguere

Hi Blog hoppers! Thank you for coming by and having a look at what I have made today!

Today the Crazy Crafters are very lucky to be blog hopping with the amazing Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Georgia Giguere!  Georgia ranked 65 in the Global 100 for 2015-2016. Wow! Go Georgia! 

You are currently visiting my blog – Sandra Mastello in Australia and you will be visiting lots of different places in your hop today. There is a list at the end of the page which will help you to move along from blog to blog so you see can see all the amazing projects.

While perusing Georgia’s blog I came across these great Sunflowers and knew that was what I had to do!

I didn’t have most of the items that Georgia used but I was determined that there had to be a way I could make something similar.  And here is my completed project!

The petals are cut from daffodil delight card stock (121680) using the leaflet framelits (138283), and scored and curled with a Stampin bone folder (102300).
The center is created by layering circles of chocolate chip card stock (108599) cut with the scalloped layering circles framelits (141705) and embossed with the softly falling embossing folder (139672) then using my dauber (133773) and early espresso classic ink pad (126974) I emphasized the raised areas and edges.
(Dauber labeling file available in my download store here.)
To create the stem and back of the flower I used garden green card stock (108605) I partially cut the large scalloped circle die (141705) to hold the back of the flowers and used the circle die (from the same set) and leaf die from the leaflet framelits (138283) to cut the leaves.

I can't wait for these ones in my yard to flower, this one already stands a foot taller than me! (And if your wondering what the vine is growing up it that would be my bean crop.)
