Painted Poppies

Today's card is the third in my series that features the Painted Poppies Suite from the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalogue.  I'm so in love with this suite of products - I've decided that it's impossible to make a card that isn't absolutely beautiful with it.

For today's card, I used the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to stamp poppies on and then cut them out using the poppy die.  No need to colour the poppies - the designer series paper does the work for you!


  1. Cut Gorgeous Grape cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Designer Series Paper 4" x 5 1/4" and adhere to the card base using Snail.
  3. Stamp sentiment on a 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Cut out using the largest label die from the Painted Poppies dies.
  4. Adhere to card base using Snail.
  5. Stamp 3 poppies on Designer Series Paper and cut out using die.
  6. Stamp 5 leaves on Old Olive cardstock using Old Olive ink.  Cut out using dies.
  7. Adhere 1 poppy on top left of sentiment label and 2 poppies on bottom right using Dimensionals.
  8. Adhere leaves using Glue Dots.
  9. Cut a 4" piece of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding - fold in half and tuck under bottom poppies.  Adhere with a Glue Dot
  10. Cut a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock.
  11. Stamp sentiment from Peaceful Moments stamp set and a Poppy in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
  12. Adhere to the inside of the card using Snail.

If you live in Canada, I would love to be your demonstrator!
