Painted Poppies Dress

Today I’m sharing a floral dress card that uses a template from an old issue of Stamper’s Sampler magazine. I featured several other dress cards in previous blog posts and have included links to them at the end of this post. This dress uses products from the Peaceful Poppies Suite, some of which will be retiring on June 2nd. I always loved playing with paper dolls as a young girl so making these dresses has been a fun way to play as an adult!

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut piece of Basic Black cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″, score and fold in half.
  • Cut piece of Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper at 4″ x 5 1/4″. I used the sheet with the Poppy Parade watercolor wash design. Die cut the cluster of poppies in the left top corner of the DSP with the die from the Poppy Moments Dies. Adhere to card base.
  • For the dress base I used a piece of a Black Foil sheet and traced around the template on the back of the sheet because the back is matte white and easy to see the trace lines. Cut out dress.
  • Next, have fun decorating the dress.
  • I selected a bunch of die-cut printed accents from the Peaceful Poppies Elements that I thought would look pretty on the dress. I knew I wanted to place the large red poppy at the waistline so I adhered it to the dress, only applying the adhesive to the center of the piece. Then I arranged the embossed vellum leaves and flowers on the the dress and once I was happy with how it looked I partially adhered them to the dress. I used liquid glue sparingly, placing small dots along the embossed lines on the leaves and in the centers of the flowers.
  • Decorate the neckline of the dress by adhering clear flower-shaped sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins with Mini Glue Dots. The glue dots are larger than the sequins so I lifted the glue dots off the sheet and then rolled them into tiny balls to fit the bottom of the sequins.
  • Adhere dress to card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4. Adhere the scalloped border die-cut accent from the Peaceful Poppies Elements and adhere piece to inside of card. I decided not to use a greeting so the inside is blank.

These products will be retiring on June 2nd so this is your last chance to purchase them: Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper, Peaceful Poppies Elements, Peaceful Poppies Sequins.

Share Sunshine with Peaceful Poppies

Today I’m sharing a bunch of cards I made with the Share Sunshine PDF download. Last week, Sara Douglas, CEO of Stampin’ Up! hosted a Facebook Live session as part of SU’s Virtual Day of Service. All employees were given a kit and an instruction sheet to make cards to send to family, friends and those on the frontline in the pandemic. Demonstrators and customers were able to join Sara from her home as she and her family made their cards. The instruction sheet includes a template for cutting a piece of 12″ x 12″ sheet of Designer Series Paper and some suggested card layouts. You can use any DSP in your collection for this project. I chose to use two sheets from the Peaceful Poppies DSP, which will be retiring next week. I made ten cards that I will be sending out. They were quick and easy to put together and I had fun making them.

I printed out the pages I chose to use on Whisper White cardstock and in my printer settings I used one of the premium settings because the cardstock is heavier than a regular sheet of paper. All of the greetings on front and insides of the cards are cut from the PDF download using a variety of punches and dies. I also added some bakers twine and some of the Peaceful Poppies Elements. NO stamping is required!

  • Color the flower with the light and dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends and color the leaves with light and dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. Stamp the small splatter image from the stamp set five time around the flower with Blackberry Bliss ink, stamping off each time before stamping onto cardstock.

Painted Poppies-Kylie’s Training Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop for January! I’m part of a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world that participate in Kylie’s program for building our businesses . Click on the names in the list below to hop around and view the beautiful cards posted by so many talented stampers.

Today I’m featuring a card from the gorgeous Painted Poppies suite, my favorite in the new Mini-Catalog. Poppy Parade has always been a favorite color of mine ever since it was first introduced as an InColor years ago. I was so happy when Stampin’ Up! brought it back during the last color refresh, however I haven’t had as much occasion to use it as I’d like because it has seldom been included in any of our Designer Series Papers until now, with the Peaceful Poppies paper. I’m glad they are showing it a little love!

I turned to one of my tried and true card layouts as it is ideal for showcasing both our beautiful DSP and larger stamp images at the same time. Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut piece of Poppy Parade cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score and fold in half.
  • Cut piece of the large poppy print at 5 1/4″ x 4″ and adhere to front of card.
  • Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 3 1/2″ x 3″. Cut piece of smaller poppy print DSP at 3 3/8″ x 2 7/8″ and adhere together. Tie Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon into bow around this piece and adhere to card.
  • For the stamped image, cut a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock at 3 1/4″ x 2 3/4″ and a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 3 1/8″ x 2 5/8″.
  • Stamp poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set and a greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set on the Whisper White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I chose the birthday greeting but you can use any of the greetings in the set that would fit into the space. Use the Stamparatus to help position the greeting.
  • Color the flowers with light and dark Stampin’ Blends in Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo and Calypso Coral. Color leaves with the dark Old Olive Blends.
  • Adhere stamped image to the Poppy Parade mat. Adhere to larger matted piece. Adhere a few of the light Poppy Parade flower sequins from the Peaceful Poppy Sequins. I used Mini Glue Dots but you can also use the Fine Tip Glue Pen.
  • For the inside of the card, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 5 1/4″ x 4″. Stamp greeting in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
  • Cut a strip of DSP at 5 1/4″ x 1/2″. The new Mini Paper Cutter worked beautifully to cut this strip!
