Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. This is followed by a layer of Real Red cardstock measuring 10.3 x 14.7 cm. The main card front is a 10 x 14.4cm piece of Whisper White cardstock.

The leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Stamp Set are stamped in Garden Green ink onto the card front. I have stamped them such that they cluster around the left hand side of the card front. The two main poppy images are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto the right hand side of the card front. These are coloured using the ‘in-fill’ stamp and Real Red ink.

The sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock. This is cut out using one of the Painted Labels Dies. The larger label die is also used to cut out a piece of Real Red cardstock and the ‘swirly’ label die is used to cut out a piece of Vellum cardstock. Three of the leaves are cut out of Garden Green cardstock. These decorative elements are layered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by a few Frosted Epoxy Droplets. I think these embellishments are great – they really do look like little beads of water!

Painted Poppies Card

Hello, and welcome to the fifth, and final, instalment of my Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Stamp Set Showcase. If you have missed parts 1 to 4 you can find them here… part 1, 2, 3 and 4. Next week I’ll start a brand new Showcase using the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Stamp Set.

Having shown you a gift bag and fancy envelope on the latest showcase blogs, I wanted to go back to a handmade card this week. I wanted to incorporate some of the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Poppies DSP but by using subtle elements of it rather than using it as the whole card front. The colour scheme I have chosen come from the DSP and is Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Blackberry Bliss cardstock. I have then cut a slightly smaller layer of Whisper White cardstock. Onto this a have stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink using the two texture stamps included in the set. I love texture stamps because they can be used to fill as much, or as little, white space as you desire! I have cut a couple of strips of DSP and adhered these to the card front. The poppy outlines have been stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then they have been in-filled in Blackberry Bliss ink. These have been cut out using the coordinating Stampin’ Up! Painted Labels dies.

Similarly, the leaf outlines were first stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, in-filled in Old Olive ink and cut out using the coordinating dies. One of the poppies is adhered directly to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the other is raised up using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the sentiment piece, I have stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using Blackberry Bliss ink. The sentiment comes from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp set. This is cut out using one of the Painted Labels dies and adhered using dimensionals.

I think this card looks clean and simple without looking stark. The strips of DSP help to highlight the colours used for the poppies and the leaves and tie the whole thing together.

Next time…

Painted Poppies Gift Bag

Hello, and welcome to the 4th instalment of my Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Stamp Set Showcase. If you have missed parts 1-3 you can find them here (part 1, part 2, part 3).

This week I’d like to show you a project using the Stampin’ Up! Copper Dotted Treat Bags. These bags are really cute on their own but you can really step them up with a little embellishment.

Let’s make it…

In this case, I have cut 5 leaves and the swirly label out of Copper Foil Sheets using the Painted Labels dies which are part of the Painted Poppies bundle. I have also cut the largest label out of Whisper White cardstock.

To create the two poppies, I first stamped the ‘in-fill’ stamp onto Whisper White cardstock in ‘second generation’ Soft Suede ink. This simply means that once I had inked up the stamp, I stamped onto my grid paper and then onto the Whisper White (without reinking the stamp). I really want to do another version of this project using Rococo Rose as the ‘in-fill’ because it seems to coordinate so well with metallics. I then heat embossed the poppy images in Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder. These were cut out using the coordinating dies.

I layered and adhered all of my die cuts and attached to the gift bag using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final touch is provided by one of the Mini Library Clips which keeps the bag closed.

I think these Treat Bags are fabulous for small gifts, table favours or even gift cards. The use of metallics creates a really luxurious look which I’m sure your recipient will adore!
