Painted Poppies Easter Card

Stampin’ Up’s Painted Poppies are fabulous, and it’s no wonder they were featured on the front cover of the 2020 Mini Catalog. Why not CASE one of their samples? And, for today’s card, I did just that!

Easter Poppies

 

I began the design with a 2″ banner cut from Peaceful Moments Designer Paper in a green& white stripe. To get the perfect banner cut, I used the Banner Triple Punch, pictured in my Product List.

The background is Whisper White Cardstock, embossed with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder, and layered on a Thick Whisper White card base.

 

Next, I stamped the “splotch” from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set in Highland Heather Ink on Whisper White Cardstock (3 times), and used a Poppy Moments Die for cutting. Then, I used a die from the same set to cut three Whisper White “frames.” 

TIP: Gluing the “frames” just in the center is sufficient to hold them in place. Plus, the lift on the edges adds dimension.

I used two more dies from the Poppy Moments Die Set: the poppy centers, cut from Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape Cardstock, and the leaves, cut from Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz Cardstock.

 

The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings, stamped in Gorgeous Grape Ink, and cut with a Stitched So Sweetly Die. For a touch of sparkle, I added some Woven Threads Sequins.

 

I was inspired by two challenges:

Umbrellas Are For Showers

Umbrellas indicate showers, and when there are showers, something new is around the corner. The new, Under My Umbrella Bundle, has the stamps and the punch to make wonderful cards for many occasions.

You could be thinking of weather, but I have wedding showers and baby showers in mind.

Shower Days

 

I began with a Highland Heather Card base, and a layer of Poppy Parade Cardstock. Then, I embossed the Whisper White top layer with the Subtle Textured embossing folder.

Prior to embossing, I stamped three umbrella handles, from the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set, in Memento Black Ink.

 

The umbrellas were made with Designer Paper from 6X6 Packs, which you can see in my Product List. The check is current, while the stripe and dot have been replaced with new patterns.

I used Versamark to stamp the frames on the DSP, sprinkled with Black Embossing Powder, and set with the Heat Tool.

Finally, I used the Umbrella Builder Punch to cut the umbrellas, and placed them on Dimensionals.

 

“It’s your day!” is from the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set, stamped in Gorgeous Grape on Whisper White Cardstock. I used a Merry Christmas label die for cutting, which fit perfectly within the Ornate Frame Die. The Ornate Frame was cut from Highland Heather Cardstock.

 

The colors were inspired by Fab Friday.

 

I’m also  sharing with the Paper Player’s, whose theme is “something new.”

Hello Tulips

 

I began by stamping “off” three tulips in pretty, Merry Merlot, on Whisper White Cardstock. There is a Tulip Builder Punch that comes bundled with the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set, but I used my Paper Snips for cutting the three tulips.

Next, I stamped three stems in Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz Inks on a Whisper What Cardstock layer. Then, I stamped six leaves to match the stems, and fussy cut the leaves.

 

Before arranging the flowers and leaves on the white layer, I embossed it with the new, 2020 Coastal Weave Embossing Folder. I love the look of this woven mat, and it’s sure to become a favorite. Behind the white mat is a layer of Magnolia Lane Designer Paper, which is glued to a Mossy Meadow card base. I used Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut the layers, making layering a breeze.

 

The sentiment, “hello,” is from the Timeless Tulip Stamp Set, stamped in Mossy Meadow Ink, and cut with the smallest, Stitched So Sweetly Die. This new die set will also be getting lots of use!

And, just when I thought my card was complete, a little, Seaside Spray, butterfly flew onto my card. You don’t usually see blue butterflies! It was made with the Butterfly Gala Stamp set and  Butterfly Duet Punch.

 

My inspiration for today’s card was a color challenge at Fab Friday.

 

Thanks for dropping by to say “hello.” The first two items, and the embossing folder, in my Product List will be available January 3, 2020. Everything else is available  today.

It’s time for a Frosted Bouquet to get extra frosty! Keep reading to see how I frosted the leaves.

Frosted Bouquet

 

I used the largest, plain, Layering Circles Die to cut the circle from Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I used  the largest, scalloped, Layering Circles Die to cut the border from Smoky Slate Cardstock.

Next, I embossed the Whisper White circle with the Subtle Textured Embossing folder, and glued the two together.

“Merry Christmas” is from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set. I stamped it in Smoky Slate Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and used an Ornate Frames Die for cutting.

 

 

The flowers, leaves and sprigs were made with the First Frost Stamp Set, and Frosted Bouquet Die Set. I stamped the flowers in Lovely Lipstick Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and used the two dies for cutting.  The leaves were cut from Old Olive Cardstock, and the sprigs from Sparkle Glimmer Paper.

For the background, I embossed Whisper White Cardstock with the Scripty Embossing Folder, and layered this on a Thick Whisper White card base.

 

Before gluing the bouquet together, I gave the leaves extra sparkle, using two, new products from the Holiday Catalog. First, I spread Shimmery Crystal Effects over the leaves, followed by a sprinkling of Ice Stampin’ Glitter. 

You can see details of the products by clicking on the pictures in my Product List below.

 

Today’s card was inspired by two challenges. The colors are from Global Design Project. 

And, my layout is from Fab Friday.

Daisy Lane Birthday Wishes

Today’s birthday card was inspired by colors: Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black.

By Su Mohr for Fab Fri; Click READ or Visit to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Daisy Lane Stamp Set, Stylish Scroll embossing, Ornate Frames Dies, Well Written Dies, Cheers Dies, Medium daisy Punch; #birthdaycards #daisylane #ornateframes #wellwritten #cheers #colorchallenges #colorchallenges #daisies #daisypunch #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #birthdaywishes

Daisy Wishes

 

The color challenge is from Fab Friday.

The first thing I imagined was a trio of Daisy Lane daisies, stamped in Melon Mambo Ink. I used my Bone Folder to give them shape. 

 

I made a YouTube video, a while ago, to show you how I shaped the daisies, which you can see by clicking on this rainbow daisy card.

 

The daisy centers are scraps of 6X6″ Regals Designer Paper in Pumpkin Pie. This dot print is retired, but the four new patterns are in my Product List. The centers were easy to cut with the 1/2″ Circle Punch.

Keeping the color simple, I layered Basic Black Cardstock on a Thick Whisper White card base. The top Whisper White layer is embossed by the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder.

 

Beneath the daisies is Whisper White Cardstock, cut with an Ornate Frames Die, and raised on Dimensionals.

“Wishes” is from Well Written Dies, and the swoosh is from Cheers Dies.

 

Thank you for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my YouTube video!

Feels Like Frost Holiday Leaves

Feels Like Frost is such beautiful Designer Paper, it’s fun to add some dimension to it.

By Su Mohr for Fab Friday; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Feels Like Frost DSP, Layering Circles Dies, Nature's Roots Dies, Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set, Silver Metallic Thread, Woven Threads Sequins; #christmascards #holidaycards #feelslikefrost #naturesroots #leaves #leavesoncards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking #cardtechniques #cardinstructions #dimensiononcards

Feels Like Frost Leaves

 

I began with this Feels Like Frost DSP, which happened to have a leaf the exact size of a Nature’s Roots leaf die. After cutting the DSP to 4″ X 5/14″, I cut the large leaf from the DSP.

 

Then, I cut two smaller leaves from the “left-over” piece of DSP, layered all three leaves for thickness, and embossed them with their Nature’s Roots embossing dies.

Next, I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut circles; one from the DSP, and one from the reverse side of a different pattern from the pack, which is a silver foil.

After gluing the two smaller leaves to the back of the circle, I placed it on Dimensionals in the hole, matching the pattern, eclipse style.

 

The scene looked peaceful to me, so I chose “Peace & Happiness” for the sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas. I used the Classic label Punch for cutting. Before placing it, I attached some Silver Metallic Thread on the back, which is secured with a Dimensional.

The sequins were a last minute idea, so they aren’t in my Product List. They are the Woven Threads Sequins, #149498.

 

My inspiration for the layout was from Fab Friday.

 

Thank you for visiting my blog. I really like these embossed leaves, so an idea is brewing for a Fall card. See you next time!
