Framed White Sunflower Shadow Box | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello and happy Monday crafty friends!

First of all, I would like to thank all of you that left me the sweetest comments and messages over on my Instagram in regards to the last Framed Lovely Layers Floral Bouquet I made. This beauty is now in Jennifer McGuire's craft room and I could not be happier about that!

Today's project was made for a friend and colleague of mine (hi Tomina👋) who asked me to make a White Sunflower shadow box for her after she saw the White Sunflower Slimline card I made. 

Here is how this beautiful frame came together.

FRAME RECIPE


Dies:
Paper: 
  • Cream, green and brown heavyweight Colored Cardstock
Frame:
  • Square 9 ¾ " Shadow Frame from IKEA (The frame I used has been discontinued, the one I linked is very similar)
Ink:

Die Cut Machine:

Adhesives:

Embellishments:

Other Tools:

Once you have put one of these flowers together, then the rest is simple. It is just a repetitive process.

  1. The first thing I did was cut all the layers for the 8 sunflowers I needed to form the shape of a heart. 
  2. I then ink blended up the centers of the flowers. 
  3. Curled the flower petals.
  4. Added foam to each layer of the flower to build up the petals and create dimension.
  5. To the centers, add a layer of glue to the bottom layer. 
  6. Drop the seed beads into the glue (I tried having the hole of the beads face up). Once the glue dried, I used a brown Copic Marker to color the center brown.
  7. To the top of the center, add small drops of glossy accents. While still wet sprinkle with Sparkle Glitter and piece the centers together.
  8. Glue centers to the flower petals.

Arrange the flowers how you like. Once you have that figured out, glue it to the paper background of the frame. Use foam to pop up some of the flowers in place. Finish by gluing the leaves in place.

I love how this White Sunflower Shadow Box frame turned out, and I hope you can see from this example that you do not need all the flowers to create something beautiful! 

Want to watch a quick video of how this came together.

White Sunflower Slimline Hello Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello crafty friends and welcome back to my blog. 

Today's gorgeous White Sunflower Slimline Hello Card is part of an Instagram Hop to celebrate Honey Bee Stamps Autumn Splendor Release. If you'd like to join and enter the giveaway click HERE.

Have you ever seen white sunflowers? I have to admit, I had never seen them until this year and I fell in love with how beautiful they looked in white. Sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers and in white, it just took them to another level!

This card was super simple to make as there was no stamping or coloring involved, just a bit of ink blending and die-cutting so it did take a little longer to do, but the results were so worth it. 

CARD RECIPE

Dies:

Paper: 


Ink:

Die Cut Machine:

Adhesives:

Embellishments:

Other Tools:


To bring the flowers to life, I added ink to the center of the flower layers and the edges of the leaves. I then curled the petals and added foam to each layer to give each flower dimension.

To the center of each flower, I just had to add sparkles. I then added more by using a gel pen to the top layer where the seed impressions are made into the die-cut.

To the background, I glued a piece of burlap lace ribbon, then arranged and glued the elements onto the slimline panel. I then finished off this Fall card by adding the hello from the Bitty Buzzwords Dies that I staked and glued 3 times using black cardstock.
