Firstly, create a (standard A6) card base from Whisper White Thick cardstock. Next you will need a piece of Whisper White Cardstock measuring 13.4 x 9 cm. This piece will form the main card front.

Use the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Stamp Set to stamp the main image, twice, in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then create a mask by cutting a circle from a piece of scrap cardstock. I used the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Die Set.

With your mask in place, use a Sponge Brayer to apply ink to different parts of the image. The colours I used were: Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody.

Heat emboss the sentiment in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto Basic Black Cardstock. I used a sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set. Cut out the sentiment using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Die Set. Make sure that the sentiment is placed towards the bottom left of the die cut. Adhere the circle to the card front and trim with Paper Snips. Finally, adhere the card front to the card base.

Painted Poppies Card

Hello and welcome to my Painted Poppies Card blog post! Today I would like to share with you a card created using the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Stamp Set and coordinating Painted Labels Dies. I hope you like it!

Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies Card by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

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!

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.

Painted Poppies Watercolour Card

Hello and welcome to the Stamptastic Friends Blog Hop! This month we are creating projects using our three favourite Stampin’ Up! Colours. For me, these are: Highland Heather, Seaside Spray and Rococo Rose. It’s so hard to choose though! What are your favourites?

If you would prefer to watch me create the card simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

For my project I decided to use the Painted Poppies Stamp Set…

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Basic Black cardstock and this is followed by a layer of Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper.

Six of the images from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set are stamped in Stazon Jet Black ink. Water was applied to the images using the Large tip Aqua Painter and then ink applied using the Medium tip Aqua Painter. I use small Clear Blocks as make-shift palettes!

Once the water and ink is dried (use a Heat Tool if you’re in a hurry but don’t forget it may move the ink a little), I used a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to create splatters all across the card front. This is a great technique if you feel you have a little too much white space but don’t want to distract from your focal images too much.

The sentiment is from the Label Me Bold Stamp Set and is stamped three times in Stazon Jet Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock. These are cut out using Paper Snips and adhered to the card using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (even these tiny ones need cutting in half for this!).

I hope you like my project. Don’t forget to carry on hopping to see what inspiration my Stamptastic Friends have for you…
