Quick and Simple Painted Poppies Card

Hello and welcome! If you have followed my blog for a while you may have noticed that my card tend to be either really simple or have lots of layers and texture. That’s because I love both styles but also because we simply have more time to spend on some cards than on others.

What’s important to me, though, is that even the quick and simple cards should have some sort of positive impact (joy, hope or comfort, etc.) to the recipient.

Today’s project features the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Stamp Set…

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Basic Black cardstock and this is followed by a layer of Whisper White cardstock measuring 10 x 14.4 cm.

Onto the bottom of the Whisper White layer I have stamped the image of multiple poppies twice in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. One of the poppies has been coloured with the Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set and is stamped onto Poppy Parade cardstock in Stazon Jet Black ink. I find that Stazon works better for small, delicate sentiments. The sentiment piece is cut out using one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

SU Noble Peacock Card

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you a card I create for the Stampin’ Senorita’s Team Challenge.

It was a sketch challenge and I decided to showcase one of the retiring InColours – Blueberry Bushel.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock and this is followed by a layer of the Blueberry Bushel Noble Peacock Speciality Designer Series Paper (DSP).

I have adhered a strip of Whisper White cardstock across the card to comply with the sketch. I have then created two banner shapes – one using the DSP and one from Whisper White cardstock. These have been slightly offset and adhered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greeting Stamp Set and is stamped in Blueberry Bushel ink onto Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment is cut out using the Classic Label Punch.

Lengths of Blueberry Bushel Grosgrain Ribbon and Silver Metallic Thread are adhered to the back of the sentiment piece using Tear & Tape. The whole piece is then adhered to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I think Blueberry Bushel is the colour I will miss most from the 2018-2020 InColours. Which is your favourite?
