Good Morning! Today I am sharing a video that I did yesterday during my Sunday Facebook Live session. I made a pretty birthday card using stamps and designer series paper from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Poppies suite. This includes the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies stamp set and the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments stamp set.
Here’s the Facebook Live video showing how to make this pretty card:
I also posted the video to my YouTube channel and you can view it here.
I CASE’d today’s card from one that my upline, Amy Koenders made for one of our Blog Hops. Here’s Amy’s original card. I love this card sketch (that she also designed), because the top layer is wider than the bottom layer and it is unexpected, yet interesting and pleasing to the eye. And it’s also a great way to easily show off pretty designer series paper to make a simple card that doesn’t look too simple.
I adhered the two panels of the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Poppies designer Series Paper to Old Olive mats with snail. Then I stamped the background of the Poppy Parade card base with the flower and leaf stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies stamp set using Poppy Parade ink, giving it a tone on tone look. I adhered the layered stripe panel to the card base with snail and the flower panel on top with dimensionals.
I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel and cut it out with the second smallest scalloped rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I adhered it to the floral panel with glue dots and finished off the card front with Peaceful Poppy sequins.
I decorated the inside of the card by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a panel of Whisper White. I stamped the poppy flower from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies stamp set in the lower corner in black and used the large spatter stamp to ‘paint’ the flower in Poppy Parade. I used the small spatter stamp next to it in Granny Apple Green ink. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Peaceful Poppies DSP and adhered to the inside of the card.
All the components of the Peaceful Poppies suite are pretty, making it so easy to quickly make an attractive handmade card that will bring smiles all around.
