Stampin’ Up! Magenta Peaceful Poppies Birthday Card

This card features the Peaceful Poppies Bundle. This is one of those must haves. It has awesome dies and great sentiments for multiple occasions. I reach for it often. The Shimmer White Cardstock, largest Water Painter and Magenta Madness 2020-22 In Color are new to me though. The Shimmer Paper didn’t photograph well, but it has beautiful subtle shimmer that was enhanced by the watercoloring. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Night of Navy Cardstock: 4 1/4″” x 8 1/2″, scored at 5 1/2″; 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ and one each of the 3 floral center dies.
  • Magenta Madness Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″, and one of each of the thin detail poppy dies (save the petals from the largest).
  • Shimmer White Cardstock: 5′ x 3 3/4″, 5 1/4″ x 4″ and approximately 4″ x 8″ for watercolor/die cutting.
  • Old Olive Cardstock: 2 leaf thin detail dies, 2 sprig thin detail dies and 2 bud stems.

The Creating

  • Use the largest Water Painter to color half of the largest piece of Shimmer White Cardstock with Old Olive Ink and the other half with Magenta Madness Ink. Some dark and some light areas are a good thing! Use the Heat Tool to speed up drying if you would like.
  • Cut one of each of the poppy outline dies and 2 poppy buds from the watercolored Magenta Madness shimmer paper.
  • Cut 2 sprig outline dies, 2 leaf outline dies and 2 leaf detail dies from the watercolored Old Olive shimmer paper.
  • Emboss the sentiment on the smallest blue panel using VersaMark Ink, White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the Heat Tool.
  • Adhere the cardstock layers to the card front. Adhere the die cuts together (the Silicone Craft Sheet is useful to control any glue overflow). Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the smaller poppy. Dry fit on the card front and then glue in place.
  • Add 3 of the white Elegant Faceted Gems.

The Inside and Envelope

  • Place the pieces (petals) of the large poppy detail die back in the die. (The die will be face down and the pieces will fit in upside down). Hold each petal in place with the Take Your Pick Tool (pointy end) and apply Multipurpose Liquid Glue to each petal. Place the inside panel down on top to adhere the petals in the lower left corner. Add the floral center and watercolor leaf detail dies. Trim any overhang. Stamp the greeting in Night of Navy Ink .
  • Add poppies and leaves from the Painted Poppies stamp set to the envelope.
