It’s Friday so it’s time for my weekly dose of floral stamping, today I’ve pulled out the Pop of Petals stamp set which hasn’t seen much ink recently. For today’s project I’ve used Petal Pink, Old Olive and Terracotta Tile, a colour I’ve not used much.
To create the flowers I pulled out my Stampin’ Markers in Petal Pink and Terracotta Tile. I coloured the centre of stamp with Petal Pink and the outer petals with Terracotta Tile to give a lovely two-tone flower when stamped. I stamped and punched out three of these. I then stamped and cut out six of the rose type leaves in Old Olive.
I ran the Whisper White layer through the Subtle Embossing Folder to add some texture, sadly this doesn’t show up on my photos. I mounted this on a background layer of Terracotta Tile and ran a strip of Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon across the middle.
I stamped my sentiment from the Stitched All Around stamp set onto a Whisper White die cut from the stitched Labels Dies. I then arranged the flowers around the sentiment and added the leaves. For a final finishing touch I added Frosted Epoxy Droplets, coloured in Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends, to the centre of each flower.
Have you pulled out the Pop of Petals stamp set recently, I’d love to know what you made.
Sale-A-Bration may be over and the co-ordinating products may no longer be available but today sees the release of a brand new suite Ornate Garden. These gorgeous products will be available in the new 2020 Annual Catalogue so you’ll ave plenty of time to purchase and enjoy them.
This suite of products includes two stamp and die bundles, a new embossing folder, gilded gems, a ribbon duo pack and a designer paper pack featuring a brand new In-Colour from the 2020-2022 coledction, my guess is its the yellow colour.
Here are links to the the new products:
Here are a few samples made by Stampin’ Up!:
Purple Posy is not a colour I’ve reached for much as we don’t have the inkpad but today I thought I use it in the Stampin’ Blends today to colour in this lovely floral birthday cake from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set. This is one of the current sets available free with a qualifing order of £45.00 until the end of Sale-A-Bration on March 31st.
This image makes a great focal point for cards and with the matching die from the Birthday Dies set its easy to cut out too. I’ve coloured the main flowers with Purple Posy, the little berries with Rococo Rose and the leaves with Mint Macaron and I’ve used Crumb Cake to colour the cake stand.
For the background I ran some Whisper White cardstock through the Stone 3D Embossing Folder to add some subtle texture. I added a strip of Purple Posy In- Colour Designer paper to the bottom half of the textured cardstock and then added a stip of the 1/4″ Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon, before adhering it all to a Mint Macaron layer and then the card base.
To finish the card I added a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set, stamped in Highland Heather onto a die cut scalloped label from the Sending Flowers Dies. I then added another scalloped label in Mint Macaron cut in half behind the sentiment to help it stand out. I finished the card by adding my coloured and die cut floral cake to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Perfect birthday card for any female in your life.
Today I’m sharing the love with this card made from the Last A Lifetime Bundle. This is a bundle themed around love and weddings and features some gorgeous dies. Today I’ve chosen to focus on the floral images in the stamp set and their matching dies.
For my card background I chose a sheet of petel pink designer paper which has Champagne foiling on from the Parisian Blossoms collection, I love this design for backgrounds.
I stamped my greeting onto the second largest die from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. To add some more of the champagne colour to my project I used the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and stamped the edges of my nested Label with the large floral die from the stamp set, this adds a nice subtle shimmer to the greeting panal and ties it togther with the background.
To finish the card I added two of the large stamped floral springs which have been stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and coloured with Petal Pink and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends. As a finishing touch I added coloured the berries on the floral springs with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint using a Blender Pen to apply the paint to my project.
This card would make a lovely wedding or anniversary card or just to let someone know you love them whatever time of year.
This gorgeous card duo are made from products in the Peaceful Poppies Suite. The main product used in these cards was the Poppy Moments dies which is a lovely collection of dies to help you build poppy (or any other type) flowers and leaves. My poppies were made from Poppy Parade cardstock with the outlines cut from Real Red. The leaves were made with Mossy Meadow and Old Olive cardstock.
The background designer paper from both cards comes from Peaceful Poppies Designer Series paper. This first card feautures some leaves which have been stamped from the Painted Poppies stamp set, Mossy Meadow ink stamped on Old Olive cardstock. Both cards also feature a strip of Real Red 3/8″ Cotton Ribbon across the middle.
The greetings for both cards come from the Peaceful Moments stamp set, stamped on labels cut from the Painted Labels dies. For a finishing touch on this second card I added some of the dark Poppy Parade flower sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins, I love how cute these little flower sequins are, please Stampin’ Up! bring us these in more colours.
Today I’m sharing three simple cards made with the gorgeous Painted Poppies stamp set, this is probably my favourite stamp set from the new catalogue. The focus of this stamp set may be poppies but I feel these flowers are versatile enough to be used to represent many other flowers too, just experiment with colour like I have here.
For each of these cards I used three stamps from the Painted Poppies stamp set and the Happy Birthday greeting comes from the co-ordinating stamp set Peaceful Moments, but you could use any greeting you have.
This Highland Heather card was the first I made. First I stamped the poppy outlines in Tuxedo Black Memento and then filled them in with Highland Heather and the large blob stamp. For the background I stamped off the Highland Heather once on scrap paper before filling in the background. The blob stamp (sorry I can’t think of a better name for it!) has a watercolour effect to it, so I think it makes a lovely background stamp as well as to fill in the flowers.
For the second card I used Melon Mambo and used a similar technique to card one, except I didn’t leave any white space on the card and did much more overstamping.
For this third card I used Bermuda Bay and started the card the same way as card one. For the background I used the paint splash looking stamp to fill in the background. I don’t know if its the colour or this stamp but I really love how this card tured out, its my favourite of the three by far.
I hope these cards have given you a little inspiration for using colours other than red with the Painted Poppies stamp set, I’m loving creating with this set so watch out for more projects next week.
Today I’d like to wish all my American readers a Happy Thanksgiving and hope your all have a lovely day celebrating with your families.
It seemed apt to pull out the Come to Gather suite for today’s project as its all about gathering together and celebrating the season.
I used some of the Come to Gather DSP to create some background layers on the card base of Soft Sea Foam.
The main focal point of the card comes from the large maple leaves. These were stamped in Pretty Peacock onto Soft Seafoam cardstock, I then used an Aqua Painter to spread the ink and create a watercoloured wash effect.
I stamped the greeting onto the smaller label from the Roses dies and then added a Pretty Peacock lattice also cut from the Roses dies. A little of the 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and some Pretty Peacock Rhinestones from the Noble Peacock and the card is finished.
