More Poppies

January 27, 2020

For today’s card I stamped the poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set across the bottom of Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I used the small dotted background stamp from the same stamp set to add Blueberry Bushell ink over the flowers and Old Olive ink over the flower stems.  I stamped multiple times without re-inking to get some variation in colour.  I attached the stamped panel to Blueberry Bushel card.  I cut the border image twice from Blueberry Bushel card using the Painted Labels Dies and attached it to the bottom of the stamped panel before attaching the whole piece to scored and folded Thick Whisper White card. I stamped the greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set onto Whisper White card using Blueberry Bushel ink and cut it out using the label die from the Painted Labels Dies.  When you use this die cut you get a line impression just inside the outside edge and I used this as a guide to trim down the label.  I cut Blueberry Bushel card using the same die and attached the greeting which gives me a narrow border all around.  The greeting is attached to the card front.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped “happy birthday” from the Peaceful Moments stamp set using Blueberry Bushel ink.  I also stamped the poppy image onto the lower left hand corner using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I once more used the small dotted background image to add Blueberry Bushel and Old Olive ink to the stamped image.

I really liked this card and decided to make it in a couple more colour variations.  One used Poppy Parade, cardstock and ink and the second one used Highland Heather cardstock and ink.  I think they look so pretty together, what about you?

Bye for now,

Kris
