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,

Jenny

ORNATE POPPY THANK YOU CARD!

Playing with the Ornate Garden products last week. I teamed them with the Poppy Moments Dies.

I had a piece of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper left over so adhered that on the card base.

The sentiment from the Ornate Thanks set was stamped in black on white card that had been diecut with one of the Ornate Layers Dies.  Then stamping the “my friend” on Blushing Bride card to punch out with the Classic Label Punch.

The poppies were created using the Poppy Moments Dies and layered on the card.

See the Gold Gem?? Some new bling is available in the Ornate Garden Suite of products.  Gotta love gold shiny bling.

The Ornate Garden products are now available in store.  See them now -> HERE.

Have a great week ahead,

Jenny

MEERKAT HELLO CARD!

Do you like The Gang’s All Meer Set?  It’s a cute one.  Today I have a card for you with this set teamed up with paper that you probably wouldn’t associate with the Meerkats.  I have used the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper.

The white card was cut with the Stitched Nested Labels Die. After stamping the cute meerkats they were coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.  The paper was adhered to an Old Olive Card base.  Before adhering the stamped piece a little strip of the Real Red Double Stitched Satin Ribbon was added behind.  The sentiment from Itty Bitty Sentiments was stamped on red card and cut with the smallest die in the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  

I think this may just work with the poppies, do you??

It’s only another month left for Sale-A-Bration for you to grab these little meerkat dudes.  The Gang’s All Meer set is free with orders over $90.  Be quick to grab them. 

You can order online in my store now ->HERE and choose this or any of the other qualifying Sale-A-Bration items.

Have a great week,

Jenny

MORE TEAM SHOEBOX SWAPS CARDS!

I mentioned in a previous post about our Team Shoebox Swap.  I thought I would share the other cards today with you.  It was just a small group this time so just a few cards.

Of course I changed them up a little from the original – because I could. 🙂

This one from Silvia is a card clip.  It is using the Parisian Beauty Bundle.  The Rococo Rose card was cut with the Stitched Rectangles Die and then the “script” stamp was stamped several times over it.  The Eiffel Tower was diecut from Gold Foil.  It’s hard to tell but there is some Wink of Stella over the Rococo Rose card and some clear heart embellishments.  The large noteclip had some Designer Series Paper wrapped around the clip.

This next one from Lynne was using the Painted Poppies bundle.  The Blackberry Bliss card was embossed with the Stone 3D Embossing Folder.  I angled the embossed card and the piece of Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper just to be different. The stamped poppy was stamped in Blackberry Bliss and cut with the die.  Using the Aquapainter spread over the ink a little to colour the poppy.

This next one from Vanessa is using the Honey Bee Bundle.  I am still not sure of this bundle but I liked making this card.  The one cool thing with this bundle is the bees in the Detailed Bee Dies cuts some of the bees in the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration.  So clever that Stampin’ Up! does this.

The honeycomb die was cut from the Bermuda Bay to use the small hexagons on the piece of Designer Series paper.  Also a fit with the dies!  I didn’t want to waste the honeycomb so I added that to my card.

The bees were coloured with the dauber and inkpads.  As the bees were embossed they resist the ink so you have coloured centres.  The large black bee at the top is stamped in black and diecut with the die.

I will post my card that I shared for the swap in another post coming up soon as I will give you some more details on it. Stay tuned for that.

TIP: Purchase any of these bundles.  They are approximately $75, add some card and ink to reach  your $90 so you can add one of the Sale-A-Bration choices.  Great with the Honey Bee Bundle as you could choose the Golden Honey Designer Series Paper.  Check them all out in store -> HERE.

Have a great day,

Jenny

A SIMPLE POPPY CARD!

This card was one of the Make and Takes we had for Onstage in November.  I never made any of my cards that day – but then I usually don’t.  It’s the time to chat to people and I have to say it can get a little stressful when you have to make the cards in a short amount of time.  So I usually bring them home to make.

I only managed to complete the card this week.  I changed it up a little to what it was meant to be.  That’s ok. 🙂  The card is aimed for a beginner stamper.  One who is just starting out and doesn’t have a lot of products.  It’s basic stamping with little or no colouring or any diecutting.

I added a little more background stamping with the poppies and leaves using the Painted Poppies stamp set.  These were in poppy Parade.

On a piece of white card I stamped a poppy just off the top edge of the card and then added the Happy Birthday from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  I lightly sponged some Poppy Parade ink around the edge of the card.  I haven’t done that for a very long time.  I used to add it all the time but now I tend to leave the card clean – if I can describe it like that.

The strips of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper were adhered straight down on to the Poppy Parade card base and the white stamped piece was raised up with Dimensionals.  Before doing that I added a little piece of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.  Of course finish with bling.

Hope you like my version of the card.  There have been a few versions of this card from those who went to Onstage.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

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.

Happy Stamping,

SUNDAY SUITES – PEACEFUL POPPIES SUITE!

We are looking at the Peaceful Poppies Suite today for our Sunday Suites.  Since I have been sharing a little recently with the Poppies Suite and this weekend I have had a really fun Poppies class (more on that later), I thought it was a good time to share this suite.

The Peaceful Poppies Suite is an absolutely gorgeous one.  There are lots of different products in this suite with not just one, but TWO stamp and die bundles.

Let me tell you about them.

Below is the full Peaceful Poppies Suite Bundle.  All these products are available all together as one bundle ($238AUD), or you can buy them individually.

The Peaceful Poppies Suite Bundle includes:

* Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set (10% off)
* Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set (10% off)
* Painted Labels Dies (10% off)
* Poppy Moments Dies (10% off)
* Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper
* Peaceful Poppies Sequins
* Whisper White 1/4″ (6.4 mm) Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon
* Peaceful Poppies Elements

Product colours in this suite are: Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Pool Party, Poppy Parade, Rich Razzleberry.

Below is the Painted Poppies Bundle.  You have the Painted Poppies stamp set and the Painted Labels Dies.  The dies have 2 great labels shapes for any sentiments.  The flower shape will cut the full flower shape, and you have the smaller leaf die for the smaller leaf in the set.

I love the swirly shape.  It’s a great one for backing your sentiments.

The second Bundle available in this suite is the Peaceful Moments Bundle which includes the stamp set and the Poppy Moments Dies.

These dies have the 2 different flower shapes with their outline which are great for layering together.  It also has 2 different leaf shapes to layer together and a couple of little flower centres.  It has a really fun background die which I will tell you more about later.

This Painted Poppies Designer Series Paper is GORGEOUS!!  Truly beautiful prints and such fun, rich colours.  These were very popular in class this weekend.  You don’t need much more on your cards when you use this paper.

The Peaceful Poppies Elements ($11.25) are a bit of a sleeper in the catalogue.  I don’t think the catalogue shows them too well.

The pack contains:

8 sheets total
* 2 sheets black die-cut elements with black foil prints: labels, banners, borders
* 2 sheets white thick cardstock die cuts with coloured prints: poppies
* 2 sheets vellum die cuts with white prints: poppies and leaves
* 2 sheets watercolour paper die cuts with clear UV prints for watercolouring: poppies and leaves

With the Printed diecut sheets you can simply pop them off the sheet and add them to your project.

On the watercolour paper sheets, the poppies and the leaves are embossed. You can give a light wash over the images with your ink and Aquapainter to give a little colour.  The images will resist the wash.  It looks cool.

What about the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon shown below!  It is very light, soft ribbon.  AND don’t just leave it white.  You can easily add colour to this ribbon by running over it with the Stampin’ Blends to create a colour to match your project you are creating.

Now for some samples for you courtesy of Stampin’ Up!

These cards below show the background die.  It is very effective.  For the card on the bottom right, the die was run through acetate or very thick card.  This creates a mask. Place this on to your card and then lightly rub over it with the Texture Paste.

Why not fancy up a journal by creating the layered flowers.

Lots of inspirational projects on this hanger.  What one is your favourite?

So what do you think of the Peaceful Poppies Suite?  Get the whole suite or just one or 2 products within the suite. Either way you won’t be disappointed.

Thank You,

Hope your Sunday is great,

Jenny

Blog Hops, cards, Catalogues, Sale-A-Bration

ESAD 2020 MINI CATALOGUE AND SALE-A-BRATION BLOG HOP!

Time for another ESAD Blog Hop.  This time we are sharing projects from the new 2020 Mini Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration.  I can’t wait to see what everyone has created.  You might have come from Cathy’s Blog -> HERE or starting from this blog.  The full list of participants will be below.

Firstly with the Blog Hop.  What is ESAD anyway??  

Now for my project.  It’s a very hard decision to work out what you are going to use with these Blog Hops.  There are so many new and exciting products.  What’s a person to do?? 🙂  In the end I chose to use the new So Sentimental Bundle because I love the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I think many people will love them.  I have made a few projects with them recently but today I have this one to share with you.

I created a card and a little treat holder with the Kraft Pillow boxes.

With the card you don’t need too much with the gorgeous Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper.  Add a piece of this to a Granny Apple Green card mat and add this to the Poppy Parade card base.  The Granny Apple Green is not a colour that is featured in the paper but I think it gives it a little POP against the Poppy Parade colour.

The sentiment from the So Sentimental stamp set was stamped on white and cut with one of the label shapes in the Stitched So Sweetly Dies set.  This was layered on to a piece of Granny Apple Green cut with one of the other label die shapes.  It’s hard to tell but I embossed the green card with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder to give it some texture.

I tied around some Granny Apple Green Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.

Wait, what?? Granny Apple Green Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.  Where is that in the catalogue??

It’s actually the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon on p 25 of the 2020 Mini Catalogue.  You can create any colour ribbon you like with the Stampin’ Blends.

Check it out below.  Just run along the ribbon with the Stampin’ Blends Marker. It dries quickly and ready to use on your projects.

Now for the Treat Holder.

Assemble the Kraft Pillow Box. Then wrap a strip of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper around the Pillow Box.  I wrapped around some more ribbon I had coloured around the box too.

The label for this box was using a different stamp in the So Sentimental stamp set and cut with different dies in the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  The Granny Apple Green card was embossed with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder as well.

If you haven’t noticed the So Sentimental Bundle you can find it on p 20 of the Mini Catalogue. It has the different label shapes and Stitched Scalloped Rectangle dies of varying sizes. Great for layering together.  Available for $56 AUD.
