When you look at a stamp set, do you see just the main image and buy it or move on based solely on that stamp?
Well, today I’m going to show you just a few ways I’ve discovered very unlikely uses for some stamps from the Close To My Heart (FUNN.ctmh.com) stamp set called Sunflower Sympathy. I hope you enjoy my overthinking.
Have a special little friend who deserves more than a handful of Sam’s mega bag candy this month? Yeah, I do, too. This little bag uses a Sam’s lunch bag, a little stamping, and a lot of happy FUNN.
Here is a video from Saturday morning’s FUNN University free class “LIVE from my MESK!” (a MESK is my word for my messy desk). This process vid shows the step-by-step how-to make your own little monster bag.
During the video, I got a little sidetracked with some more ideas using this stamp set, so here we go, Sunflower Sympathy.
Have a friend who is under the weather? Get out Sunflower Sympathy!
Have a pre-schooler who likes to play games? Get out Sunflower Sympathy!
Have a birthday card to send? Get out Sunflower Sympathy!
I’m sure Sunflower Sympathy has more FUNN discoveries of use to be made! If you come up with something new, please share it on my FB page!
Of course, you can always use Sunflower Sympathy for a sunflower card, too! We’ve been painting on the FUNN University campus this month, and this is just ONE of the many cards I’ve shared with my students. I count at least 11 more cards with Sunflower Sympathy alone only shared on campus! You are so welcome to enroll and join us, too!
I’m adding this card to the CAS Watercolour Card Challenge blog. It is a new challenge blog to me, and I totally suggest you visit their site. The examples are beautiful!
I’m also linking this Sunflower card to another new challenge blog to me called “A Place To Start“. If you love checking off lists, check out their charts! This sunflower card checked off at least one requirement per column.
Column one: Image, Sentiment, Vellum
Column two: Embossing (wet)
Column three: Embossing powder, Shimmer Brush (red on the petals – hard to see)
Column four: flower
Column five: Stitching (faux) trimmed from a die cut
Do you love how I overthink a stamp set? Then join us for your free month on the campus of FUNN University. Because overthinking is what I do.
Heads Up, FUNN friends on ordering this stamp…
This is the last FULL week of the September/October Close To My Heart Idea Book – so get your eyeballs on those pages before it disappears! This is a bonus time, too, because the next November/December Book can be seen and ordered from! Don’t forget the Core Products Idea Book. In the Core Products Book, you’ll find one of next month’s stamp sets to be featured, “Build a Plaid“. I really appreciate how CTMH gives them to you gratis with any order.
BTW, I’d love to have you subscribe to my FUNN mail (upper right), follow me on all those social medias like FB, IG, Pinterest, YouTube, and the like. Plus, I really appreciate when my FUNN friends SHARE some FUNN with their buds! Thank you!
