  • 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.

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! Simple Stamping Valentine’s Card

My husband likes to get my handmade (for him) cards, but he isn’t really impressed with a lot of frills, bells and whistles. With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, this card was made with him in mind. He’s not afraid of red hearts and I added the black for masculine appeal. Simple…no die cutting, glitter, or embossing. Here’s how it happened…

I began with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock scored at 5 1/2″. I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black and the hearts from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set (2 first generation and a second generation) in Real Red Ink on a piece of 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I back it with a 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ piece of Basic Black Cardstock with Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the Happy Valentine’s Day heart from the Heartfelt Stamp Set (the one in the Forever Lovely set was too tiny for this purpose) in Real Red Ink. To add the black scallop I punched a heart from a scrap of Basic Black Cardstock with the “straight edge” punch from the Heart Punch Pack (this I tossed into my reserve stash) and then punched the “scallop edge” to allow me to align the two front visual. I’m pleased with how that tired out. So, no frills, bells or whistles so I added a simple 1/2″ strip of Real Red Cardstock to the bottom.

I decided Mr Man could handle three (3) Holiday Basic Rhinestone Jewels on the front…skipped the Wink of Stella though. 😉 Links to the supplies used are listed below. Thanks for joining me. Please comment or send me an email if you have an questions or if I can be of help.
