The Cutting

  • Blackberry Bliss Card Base: 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″
  • Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper: 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″, for the Label 3 3/4″ x 2 1/4″, and a scrap for the sentiment.
  • Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon: about 15″

The Technique

  • Stamp the poppies image on the label in Momento Tuxedo Black ink.

  • Add some Wink of Stella to a few random flowers, if you desire.

The Inside

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Card

I used the Timeless Tropical Bundle to make this bright card. I love how the colors pop off the black background and I hope you do, too.

The card base is Basic Black Cardstock cut at 4 1/4” x 11” and scored at 5 1/2”. The inside is a 4” x 5 1/4” piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I used scrap pieces of Whisper White for the hibiscus pieces and the label.

I used Momento Tuxedo Black to stamp: the Hibiscus and three (3) leaves from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set, the Thinking of You from the Little Ladybug Stamp Set and the Hibiscus randomly on the Basic Black card front.

I used Stampin’ Blends to color the Hibiscus and three (3) leaves: Dark Daffodil Delight, Real Read Light & Dark, Lovely Lipstick Light & Dark, Old Olive Light & Dark. I then used the In The Tropics Dies to cut out the Hibiscus pieces. The label is from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

The hibiscus on the inside and the envelope is stamped in Lovely Lipstick. First Generation on the inside and Second Generation on the Envelope.

I added a little wink of Stella to the inside of the Hibiscus. It and one of the leaves are popped on Stampin’ Dimensionals. The rest is glued with Liquid Adhesive.

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Poppies Suite Cards

It’s no wonder Peaceful Poppies Suite is most popular in the January – June 2020 Mini Catalog. It is gorgeous and oh so easy to create with. Tonight I made two cards featuring just the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper and sentiments from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. You will also notice that I adjusted the sentiments to fit the spaces where I wanted them. More on that below. Enjoy!

Card 1 Cutting

  • Old Olive Card Base: 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″
  • Whisper White Card Front: 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Real Red Cardstock: 2 3/8″ x 5 1/2″
  • Peaceful Poppies DSP: 2 1/8″ x 5 1/4″

The Technique

I wanted the Thank You sentiment to fit in the blank area to the right of the DSP so I used a Masking technique to split it to two lines. Once I placed the stamp on the block, I used the sticky part of a Post It Note (or Washi Tape) to cover “You”. I inked the stamp in Tuxedo Black Ink, removed the Post It Note and stamped just the “Thank’ on the card front. Repeat for the second line. I will warn you, the hardest part is to remember to remove the Post It (with the ink on it) from the Stamp before you go to your paper. I don’t know why that is, but it is.

Card 1 Inside

  • Peaceful Poppies DSP Strip: 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 3 7/16″ x 5 1/4
  • Same technique for the sentiment.

Card 2 Cutting

  • Whisper White Cardbase: 4 1/4″ x 11 scored at 5 1/2″
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Peaceful Poppies DSP: 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
  • Whisper White Tag die cut from the Painted Labels Dies

Card 2 Inside

  • Old Olive Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Peaceful Poppies DSP Stip: 1/8″ x 5 1/8″
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 3 5/8″ x 5 1/8″

Adhesive and Embellishment

There are three (3) Peaceful Poppies Sequins adhered to the front of each card using Mini Glue DOTS. The layers were adhered with Snail with the exception of the small DSP strip on Card 2 which required Liquid Adhesive.

Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Watercolor Card

I made this Birthday Card with the Painted Poppies Bundle and sentiments from Peaceful Moments. It is a white embossed watercolor. Watercoloring is so easy and so rewarding.

  • I began with a 4 7/8″ x 3 9/16″ piece of Watercolor Paper. I also used the larger scrap piece that was leftover.
  • I stamped the poppies and leaves from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink, sprinkled with White Embossing Powder and set with the Heat Tool.
  • I used the medium tip Aqua Painter and the following Ink Pads to watercolor the images: Crushed Curry, Lovely Lipstick, Old Olive, and Blackberry Bliss. It’s a good idea to have a paper towel on hand.
I had Flirty Flamingo out, but found there was enough variation with just the Lovely Lipstick.
  • I loaded the Aqua Painter with water diluted Lovely Lipstick and tapped it over the focal image for the Watercolor splatter background.
  • I added the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in the top right corner with Blackberry Bliss Ink.
  • I used the Painted Labels Dies to cut out the images on the scrap paper. I popped then up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • On a 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock I stamped the poppies in Lovely Lipstick and the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss for the inside of the card.
  • I also added the poppies to a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope for a matching set.
  • I layered on a 5″ x 3 3/4″ piece of Crushed Curry Cardstock, a 5 9/16″ x 4 1/16″ piece of Lovely Lipstick (I cut the center out with a Rectangle Die to use for a future project) and mounted on a 4 1/4″ x 11″ Blackberry Bliss Cardstock scored at 5 1/2″.
  • Note: I adhered the Watercolor Paper with Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive and the other Cardstock Layers with Snail.

Stampin’ Up! Abstract Impressions Floral Card

I received a new stamp set and I just had to play with it. (My apologies it’s not Christmas, although there is an item from the Holiday Catalog in the making). My Stampin’ Up! up-line, Amy Koenders, does a drawing from the card posts on our team Facebook page. The prize is a stamp set of our choice. I was one of the lucky ones. Guess who’s getting this card. 🙂

THE CUTTING

  • Crushed Curry Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ for the card and 5″ x 3 3/4″ for the front layer.
  • Whisper White Cardstock: Two 5 1/4″ x 4″ for the inside and the front layer; 3 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ for the stamping; and 1″ x 3″ for the message.
  • Garden Green DSP: 3 1/2″ x 2″ and a 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ strip for the inside.
  • Garden Green 3/8″ Double Stitched Ribbon: 14″

Tip: I cut the extra paper from the center of the larger front layers to use on other projects. You can use a paper trimmer, die thinlet, or a punch. I used the Rectangle Stitched Framelit Dies in this instance. It also helps reduce the weight of the card for mailing.

THE CREATING

  • Stamp Thank You in Garden Green on the 1″ x 3″ strip. Run it through the Big Shot with the 2nd smallest thinlet in the skinnier set of rectangles in the Rectangle Stitched Dies.
  • Stamp the larger leaves stamp in garden green across the bottom of the 3 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ in second generation (stamp off on scrap paper then onto the card without reinking). Stamp the smaller leaves stamp in first generation with Garden Green.
  • Stamp the flower stamp in Crushed Curry in second generation. Add the complimentary stamp in first generation.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the inside layer.
  • I adhered the layers with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive and popped the message with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Glue Dot behind the knot of the ribbon to prevent it from sliding during mailing.

Lovely Floral Card

I have a friend in Amsterdam who has a beautiful garden. She has just had serious surgery. Three years ago, when I had surgery, she sent me a card with dutch tulips on it. We mainly communicate through the chat on a game we play (my husband calls us “Modern Day Pen Pals”), but it is such a treat to get real mail from a far away place. Here is what I made to mail to her.

The Cutting

  • Whisper White Cardstock – two 5 1/4″ x 4″, and 2 1/2″ x 1 3/4″
  • Garden Green Cardstock – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ and 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″
  • I ran the small piece of Whisper White through my die cut machine with the Stitched Oval (2 1/4″ x 1 1/4″).

The Stamping

  • I used the Beautiful Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set to stamp the roses in Flirty Flamingo on one of the 5 1/4″ x 4″ Whisper Whites. I added the flower centers in Gray Granite. I added the leaves in Garden Green.
  • I stamped the roses and leaves on the lower right corner of the inside Whisper White panel and glued it with Tombow Liquid Adhesive.
  • I stamped the roses and leaves on the lower left corner of the envelope. So fun to have matching sets.
  • I stamped the You Are Loved sentiment from the Forever Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink on the Whisper White Oval. I adhered this to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals (using a double one where the “d” overhung the lower frame).

The Finish

  • I used my paper trimmer to cut out the center with a 3/4″ border to make a frame. You could use rectangle dies if you prefer.
  • I glued the floral frame to the card front with Tombow Liquid Adhesive.
  • I glued the floral insert to the rectangle of Garden Green Cardstock. I adhered this to the card front with Stampin’ Dimenstionals to give it a pop.
  • I added three Pearl Basic Jewels (the rule of 3s in art).

I hope you enjoyed this lovely card and I hope it will brighten my friend, Matty’s, day.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship Card

Today I created this beautiful card with the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set. This is a gorgeous floral set that has shading built in. I’ve added even more with the multiple ink colors I chose.

I was inspired by the colors of the season and the Sunday Stamps challenge. Here is the sketch for Sunday Stamps SSC214

All of the stamped images have 3 colors in them achieved with the rolling technique or by using a sponge dabber (smaller flowers) or a Stampin’ Write marker (large double rose). The message is from the To Every Season Photopolymer Set and the Stitched Shapes oval is raised by Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A list of supplies is below. If you have questions feel free to drop me a comment or email, stampdabbles@gmail.com.
