Painted Poppies Card

Hello, and welcome to part 2 of my Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies stamp set showcase. If you missed it, you can find part 1 here. As I mentioned last week, ‘Painted Poppies’ and is part of the gorgeous ‘Peaceful Poppies’ Suite.

The whole Suite is delightful and includes two stamp set and die bundles, DSP, sequins, ribbon and die-cut elements. You’ll find it on pages 24-27 of the new catalogue once you get yours! If you are in the UK and don’t already have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and would like a copy of the catalogue just get in touch and I’ll be happy to send you one.

This week’s project is a card which incorporates many elements from the suite – stamps, dies, Designer Series Paper (DSP) and embellishments.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Pool Party cardstock. The next layer is a piece of the beautiful Peaceful Poppies DSP but to add some extra interest, I have cut a window from the DSP using one of the dies from the Painted Labels die set. I have used the same die to cut a piece of Pool Party cardstock and adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the smaller label die from the Painted Labels set. Stamping towards the edge of the label leaves space that provides a great background for the focal poppy. This is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Poppy Parade cardstock and cut out using the coordinating die. I have also die cut three leaves from Old Olive cardstock and adhered them behind the poppy and behind the sentiment piece.

Extra texture is provided by a length of Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon which is also adhered behind the sentiment piece. The final touch comes from the addition of both Peaceful Poppies Sequins and Pearl Basic Jewels.

Using DSP makes it so easy to create stunning cards but don’t be afraid to chop it up and die cut sections from it to add interest and to make it go further!
