With the dawning of a new Annual Catalogue I’m brought back to when we first saw the current Mini Catalogue. We all fell in love with Painted Poppies at first sight!
If you have followed me for a while you will know I love flowers … and flower stamps. One flower that emits a lot of emotion and gratitude is the Poppy.
I think when we got the Mini Catalogue we were all wowed with the cover and all those Poppies. Then we saw the Peaceful Poppies Suite! We then noticed that Suite contained not one but two bundles! The Artists at Stampin’ Up! had delivered glorious images and sentiments for us to use in our projects yet again.
My card today is simple and easy to re-create.
The Poppy stamp is stamped twice onto Whisper White in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Dont be stressed if it doesnt meet perfectly or a little uneven – that ribbon is positioned to cover any mishaps!
The flowers are painted with the Stampin’ Blends Markers. Now when I say painted I use the term loosely! It was truly just a matter of dotting the dark ink on the flowers and colouring quickly with the lighter marker. I did not spend hours painting each flower. It’s meant to look like that of a watercolour print.
Before adhering my white Poppy Panel onto the Black mat I sponged around the edges in Pool Party. This not only softens the edge of the card but gives it a little depth as well.
The Sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set. You may wonder how I managed to get just half the sentiment. I used my Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up the words I wanted then stamped onto whisper white. I made one edge flagged and adhered it to my card with dimensionals.
Technique Tip – Flagged Sentiment
I love doing this wavy flag type sentiment. To achieve that look I use snail adhesive at each end and a double dimensional in the middle. Once on my card I use my bone folder to flick up the flagged end.
I do hope you liked today’s Painted Poppies Card.
