PAINTED POPPIES FOR A CHALLENGE!

Over the last week I encouraged members in my Facebook group to create a card. Each day I posted an element for a card with the card measurements and other pieces. By the end of the week they could create their card and share it with the group.

It was a fun activity and I was so excited to see people share that wouldn’t normally share in the group.

This was my card I created. I actually made this Saturday week ago in Anzac Day but I couldn’t share this until now.

I have used the Painted Poppies Stamp set. The poppy is coloured with the StampinBlends. The sentiment is from Positive Thoughts.

You can join my Facebook group wherever you are. Drop me a comment or email and I can add you.

Have a happy day,

IN THE TROPICS DAISY!

I had this idea in my head for a little while and thought I would give it a try. I have to say it didn’t work out as well as I had imagined. But, … I’m going to show anyway.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When I first saw the pineapple top in the In The Tropics Dies I wondered if it would make a grassy clump. That idea could work with the Daisy Lane set or similar.

After I cut the “grass” I sponged the ends with the Old Olive ink.

The patterned paper is from the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper pack.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings set and was cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

What do you think of this idea? Yay or Nay?

I’m keeping this brief today. Our computer has died so doing this on the IPad and Phone. I’m adaptable right. 😆 So apologies roday for the standard of the post.

Thanks for visiting me.

WATERCOLOURED PAINTED POPPIES!

I want to share this card with you today.  I made it at our team Shoebox Swap last week.  I will show you the other cards we made later but thought I would show you this one today as I recreated it and filmed a video to show you how it was made.  Hope you like it.

It’s using the Painted Poppies set and is a fun card – although a little messy.  This card was shared to me by Deborah in our Inky Fingers Team.

 

Just a quick overview of how to make the card but be sure to watch the video (and you can subscribe to my channel on Youtube to catch new updates.  It’s early days but I am working on it!) 🙂

  1. Use your clear block and press the ink pad on to the block to get some ink.  Use the Aquapainter to spread the ink around and make it a little watery.
  2. Press the Painted Poppies “splodge” stamp on to the clear block to pick up some ink.  Press it on to your card.  I used Very Vanilla.  You could use Thick Whisper White, Shimmery White or Watercolor card.  Repeat this 3 more times over the card in a “circular” pattern.  Use the Aquapainter to spread the ink and also add some more ink from the block if you need to.
  3. Allow to dry then stamp the flower outlines over the “splodges”.  Stamp the leaves in black over the card.
  4. Use the large “splatter” stamp and ink it up in Mossy Meadow ink.  Stamp off first on scrap paper then stamp over the larger leaves.  Use the smaller “splatter” to stamp over the smaller leaves.  Clean the stamp, ink up the stamp in Gray Granite then stamp off first on to scrap paper. Stamp on the small leaves.
  5. Diecut flower centres add them to the card and stamp the sentiment.  Adhere the card to the card base.

Hope you have some messy fun with this card.

Have a great day,

Jenny

BLUE POPPY PATCH WITH THE PAINTED POPPIES!

Last week I shared a card with the Painted Poppies stamp set in a blue colour.  I made another card at the same time too so thought I would show you that one.

I used the Stone 3D Embossing Folder on the Balmy Blue card as I did on the other one.  The Poppies was stamped in Memento Black and then coloured with the Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends. Gotta love the new Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I used those to cut the white scalloped rectangle.

The sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings was heat embossed in white on black card and punched with the Classic Label Punch.

The Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon is so lovely.  It is soft and so easy to tie in to a bow.  Don’t forget you can colour this ribbon with your Stampin’ Blends if you want to match your project.

I’m thinking other colours for these poppies.  Let’s see how we go with that one.

Have a great week,

Jenny

HIMALAYAN POPPY CARD!

Last week I shared on my Facebook page this card with the Painted Poppies stamps.  I wanted to go with a different colour of poppy than what you might be seeing all around the internet.  I looked up some poppy colours and saw a gorgeous blue one called the Himalayan Poppy.  So I tried to recreate this.

The Balmy Blue card piece was embossed with the Stone 3D Embossing Folder. A new favourite of mine.  The Poppy was coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.

I put together a video showing how I created the card.  You can check out this video on Youtube -> HERE.

Apologies in advance.  I am still working this video thing out so be patient. 😉

If you need these Painted Poppies (or any other products) in your life then you can grab them in my store now -> HERE.

POPPY THANK YOU TAGS!

On the weekend for my special Poppies class I made each person that came a little Thank You tag for coming.

They are just simple tags but you don’t need to do a lot with these poppies.

The top of the Whisper White tag is punched with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch with some Petal Pink Metallic Edge ribbon through the top.

After cutting the poppies,  the Petal Pink solid flower was sponged with a little Petal Pink ink and then the outline poppy in Poppy Parade was adhered over the top.  There was just a little strip of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper across the bottom.  The leaf cut in Granny Apple Green is actually the “leaf” or base for the small poppy bud but I think it works well as a little leaf.

The “splotch” stamp is from the Painted Poppies Stamp set and the Thank You from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  

Sweet tags in no time.

I showed you all about the gorgeous Poppies products in yesterday’s Sunday Suites.  Did you check them out?

You can head to my shop now -> HERE and see them. 

If ordering just add the Host Code at checkout. R26WHBUN  Thank you kindly. 🙂

Happy Stamping,
