Sunflower on Stain Wood. Simple way to get the look of stain wood

Hello Stampers, 
Today it’s a Sunflower on Stain Wood. A simple way to get the look of stain wood just with the Pinewood Plank embossing folder and little ink with water. This is such a great background to showcase the beautiful sunflower. 

I have the video at the bottom or you can view in on my Youtube channel. Warning in the video I struggle on matching the top layer with the bottom. Well, here a tip it is 3 letter turning on the RIGHT that are the 3 petals you want to pay attention to for the easier way to layer them. OH! you will think I was going crazy but you know the more you play with product the better you get. 


Both card are the same measurement just different colors fo the sunflower. 

  • Very Vanilla  11 x 4¼ score a 4¼ card base, 3¾ x ¾ banner
  • Early Espresso 5-3/8 x 4-1/8, 4 x 1 banner, 1 x 1 center of the flower 
  • Crumb Cake 5¼ x 4 emboss with the Pinewood Plank folder 
  • For the sunflower, you need 3½ x 3½ for each layer. One sunflower is Bubblebe with Cinnamon Cider and the other one Magenta Madness and Very Vanilla. 
  • Adhesive sheet 3½ x 3½ for the top layer of the sunflower. 

Step by steps for the stained wood 

This is so easy, I wished staining wood in real life would be this easy. 

  • Emboss the Crumb Cake cardstock with the pinewood plank embossing folder. 
  • Tap Early Espresso ink pad on top of the raised embossing cardstock. 
  • Take the water painter and brush water on the same direction of the wood grain. 
  • Voila, you have the wood stained look. 
  • Let dry before assembling your card.

These 2 colors are both new this summer and compliment each other very well. They sure remind me of the fall.

Who said sunflower need to be yellow? No me! You know I’m not one to use much of the bright colors but this Magenta Madness with Vanilla on that wood background is very striking and what we call candy to the eyes. What do you think of this new Magenta Madness?
