Today’s cards are made with the Brilliant Wings and the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ Paper Pack. I love when Stampin’ Up! bring out designer paper which has coordinating dies as it makes creating so easy. Whats great about these products is the outline die in the set cuts out six complete butterflies from one sheet of paper in one cut, or if you’re using the stamp set you can simply stamp and cut, meaning you can very quickly end up with a desk full of butterflies like me!
Both background papers also come from the Butterfly Bijou paper pack, I love all the pastel shades and watercolour effects on these sheets so much I’ve ordered a couple more of these paper packs.
The greeting for both cards comes from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and the die comes from the Painted Labels die set.
A little Misty Moonlight Twill Ribbon and a few Enamel Dots and the cards are done. I’m really loving how great Misty Moonlight and Just Jade look together on these cards.
Have you had a play with the Peaceful Poppies Elements yet? These are a pack of eight sheet of die cuts which coordinate with the images from the Painted Poppies stamp set. They are the perfect thing for whipping up lovely cards when you dont have much time. Today I’m sharing two cards using these elements as the focal points.
For the first card I used three of the printed die cuts and arranged them around the circle swirl die from the Painted Labels Dies, for some extra embellishment I added some of the tiny Poppy Parade flower sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins collection.
This second card took a little longer as I used four diecuts from the Painted Labels Dies to create the border along the edge of the floral paper. For the focal point of this card I stamped one of the die cut circle elements with Whisper White Craft Ink, make sure you give it time to dry so it doesn’t smuudge. Again a few sequins finish off the card.
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.
