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!

Introducing the Peaceful Poppies Suite

This images in this striking mega-suite made it to the top of my list when I placed my pre-order last month. This suite includes two stamp sets with coordinating dies. The images in the Painted Poppies stamp set are ideal for watercoloring or coloring with Stampin’ Blends. The Peaceful Moments stamp set is a greeting only stamp set, with a beautiful font and sentiments for many different occasions. This will definitely be a “go to” set for me. The dies in this bundle will give you endless possibilties for creating layered, 3-D flowers.

Next is a gorgeous set of Designer Series Papers that was originally watercolored by a Stampin’ Up! design artist. I love the color palette – so bright and fresh!

There are three coordinating accessories to round out this suite. The Peaceful Poppies Elements are add-on die-cut printed images that are great for creating quick cards without you having to do a lot of the work! The package contains 8 sheets, with 2 sheets each of the different elements. The Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon can be used as is or you can use ink pads, reinkers or Stampin’ Blends to color the ribbon to match any project. Lastly, the Peaceful Poppies Sequins include both round and flower shapes.

I will begin posting projects beginning tomorrow, as I am now back on track with my Stampin’ Up! business after taking a partial hiatus due to my recently-completed kitchen renovation. I will be featuring a card using products from this suite.

Thanks for stopping by today!
