Hello! Today I have a card that uses the Stampendous stamp called Sunflower Perch. This is such a pretty stamp to color. I love that the bird can be colored in many different ways. I decided to color the bird to look like a finch that frequents our bird feeders.
P352: Sunflower Perch
My Colors Cardstock: Parrot, Sky, Yellow Corn, Banana Pepper, Sweet Potato
Imagine: VersaFine Ink in Onyx Black, On Point Glue
Doodles Paper Playground: “Citrine” Sparkle Blend

1. Stamp Sunflower Perch n to Mixed Media Paper with VersaFine Ink.
2. Color the stamped image using the marker colors listed.
3. Cut the image out to approx. 2 1/2″ x 4 1/4.”
4. Cut a mat of Parrot cardstock to approx. 3″ x 4 1/4.”
5. Create the card base out of Sky cardstock, cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2.”
6. Cut a piece of Yellow Corn cardstock, to the size of 4 1/4″ x 3 1/4.” Tear the top.
7. Cut a piece of Banana Pepper cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 2 1/2.” Tear the top.
8. Cut a piece of Sweet Potato cardstock, cut to 4 1/4″ x 1 1/2.” Tear the top.
9. Stamp the sentiment on the Sweet Potato layer with VersaFine Ink. You may need to stamp it twice because we’re using a textured cardstock.
10. Adhere the colored image on to the Parrot mat with EZ Runner.
11. Adhere all the torn layers to the card base with EZ Runner.
12. Pop the stamped layer with Foam Dots and adhere to the card base.
13. Using On Point Glue, adhere sequins on the card.
I love incorporating torn paper on to my cards, and I think using multiple torn layers gives a nice effect….almost like a blurred background. I also like to add a sprinkling of sequins for a bit of shine. Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see what the rest of the team has been working on. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
