On Saturday I held a workshop with a lovely group of ladies. We made two cards and a 3D item. Both cards we made using the Whisper White Notecards and Envelopes. First up is the Painted Poppies card – you’ll have to wait a bit to see the other two projects.
This design can be landscape or portrait and you could have bigger card fronts and mats and create this design in a full sized card too.
We’ve used the Painted Poppies Bundle for stamping and die cutting the images and added the sentiment from Peaceful Moments. These bundles work so well together.
Both flower images have coordinating dies from the Painted Labels die set and there are two leaf dies which makes quick work when cutting out multiple leaves. The leaves are stamped in Old Olive ink on Old Olive cardstock. The ‘swirl’ die ties all the elements together and I can see this die being used on lots of different projects. I stamped the sentiment first then stamped the small ‘splotch’ image in Flirty Flamingo over the top.
For the inside of the cards we stamped the ‘field of flowers’ stamp in Memento Black – I really like the black and white look of this image. The Peaceful Poppies Sequins come in five colours and two designs – round and flower shaped.
Well that’s all for tonight – just a couple more Peaceful Poppy projects to share with you over the coming days but until then …
