Himawari Babies

I've seen Himawari Babies designs used on some blogs and was always wondering who sold those stamps and where could I find them? Blogging friend Denise graciously sent me some images to play with. It turns out that she's a designer for Himawari (him'-ah-wah-ree) which means "sunflower" in Japanese.

They're images printed on good quality cardstock, already colored, and ready to be used. You can punch them out with paper punches or Nesties and affix them to a card or tag or even a scrapbook layout. How wonderfully easy is that?

Jennifer McGuire made these cards a while back and they've always been a favorite of mine. I trimmed out some images and put these together really quickly with scallop circle punches and used some Cuttlebug folders for texture.


I can see how these would make quick cards because I made these in less than 30 minutes and tucked them into goodie bags for my neighbors. Thanks, Denise, for introducing me to Himawari Babies!
