You know we couldn’t have a fresh florals stamp collection without the sunniest of flowers – the IOD Sunflowers Stamp!
IOD Sunflowers is a clear stamp set with two 12 x 12 sheets featuring sunflower blossoms in different sizes and angles as well as leaves and stems. These elements can be arranged to ‘build’ whatever composition you want – a floral wreath, a field of wildflowers, side drawer peek-a-boo flowers — whatever you can imagine! And the can be easily used with the other fresh florals stamps including:

Let’s count the ways you can use the IOD Sunflowers Stamp
As with the recently released Chrysanthemums and Peonies Stamps, the IOD Sunflowers Stamp features clean lines and ample white space. This makes them perfect for the stamp impressed technique (1). You can also use them for embossing (2) and with watercolor (3). These stamps are AH-MAZING on fabric – for upholstery (4) or to create a batik style fabric with a resist (5)(coming soon on the IOD YouTube Channel – subscribe here so you’re notified as soon as it’s published). That’s FIVE and we’re still counting!
IOD Stamps are designed to be quick and easy to use (both prep and clean up) AND the images are “buildable.” That means you can arrange them however you like to create a custom, cohesive look.
The lines and composition of this stamp are perfect for impression techniques. The ridges of the stamps are deeper, more distinct, and durable as compared to other craft and decor stamps. They create a crisp, two-dimensional image when pressed into troweled paint, air dry clay, or a joint compound medium.
Other mediums you can use with the IOD Sunflowers Stamp
Our favorite medium is IOD Decor Inks, but you can also use decor paints such as chalk, clay, or mineral-based paints. For more mediums, as well as the prep and care for your stamps, check out this “How to Use IOD Stamps” basics.
And don’t forget, in addition to furniture, you can stamp impressions on polymer clay, plates and table decor, and so much more. The better question might be, “what can’t you stamp on?” 😆
Reusable Masks for the IOD Stamps
Use the reusable IOD decor masks when you want to create layers in your design without disrupting the original stamped image. The mask is shaped just like the stamp and it covers the original image. This protects (or masks) that first impression as you continue to stamp your project. The plastic mask keeps your stamped designs crisp and clear. It also creates depth in your design by giving the sense of foreground and background.
