FINAL card for my Painted Poppies class!

Hey Guys!

The card I am going to show you today is the design of Susan Campfield! Usually, I try to change up the cards I am inspired by, but this one is perfect, so I left it as it was! Thank you Susan!

I did Lie about ONE thing, hers had a different sentiment, but this one worked from Forever Blossoms. But, it was a little white lie, so I’m sure you’ll forgive me. 🙂

This card is pretty straightforward, stamping and die cutting the DSP/swirly ……very fast and easy! I hardly ever do ‘simple’ cards, they are more of a challenge for me, go figure! Ha!

Here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
Painted Poppies Bundle
Forever Blossoms

Inks:
Memento Black

Paper:
Black 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scrap for swirl
Poppy Parade 5 1/4″ x 4″
White scrap
Peaceful Poppies DSP scrap for center of swirl

Misc:
Dimensionals
Layering Circle Dies
Classic Label Punch
Peaceful Poppies sequins
MultiPurpose Liquid glue

As usual, the supplies will be listed below in picture form, click on any of them to be taken to my OnLine Store. If you purchase from me you will receive from me a handmade thank you card and 40+/- tutorials! Each month you can get brand new tutorials with any purchase! IF you are interested in my class where you can get the 3-5 cards for free, purchase the Painted Poppies stamp set (to get 3) or the Painted Poppies bundle (to get all five cards in a tutorial!). If you live near me in North Carolina, you are welcome to come to my classes! I have day and night time classes!

Third FREE card for buying the Painted Poppies stamp set!

Hey Guys!

Hopefully, you’ve been following along with my cards that I will do in a free class when you purchase the Painted Poppies Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! And, if you buy the bundle you can make FIVE cards! The last 2 posts I have been showing you the cards that we will be doing.

First off, can I say how much I LOVE this stamp set!? It is super pretty and the way SU! brought so many cool things that coordinate with it make it even that much better! Every time I get on Pinterest, I find something else that I want to do, or am inspired to make.

Secondly, I love that Stampin’ Up! is always encouraging us demonstrators to do well in our business. They gave us a challenge to sell a certain number of this set, and being that it is so cool, I doubt I will have any trouble! It was first on my list to buy and I’ve heard others say the same thing.

Enough Talk! Here is the 3rd card you can make with me:

Simple but very elegant, right? I love how the DSP brings out the color of the Poppy.

Here is the inside:

As always, here are the specifics for this card:

Stamp sets:
Painted Poppies Bundle
Peaceful Moments

Inks:
Memento Black
Gorgeous Grape
Highland Heather/Mossy Meadow Blends

Paper:
Gorgeous Grape 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 2 1/2″ x 3 5/8″
Basic Black 5 1/4″ x 4″ (x2), scraps for 4 swirlies on sides (from Die)

Very Vanilla 5″ x 3 3/4″

Misc:

As you can see, Elegance doesn’t have to be hard! I love the touches of the black swirls (Die) on the sides, really sets off the flower, don’t you think? Plus the Wink of Stella adds just that POP that this card needs!

Below you will see all the supplies in picture form. If you click on any of the pics you will be taken to my OnLine Store! IF you decide to purchase this set from me, you are invited to my class where you will make either 3 cards OR 5 if you purchase the bundle! Live too far away? No problem, I will send you a pdf of the instructions with pictures!

Thank you for stopping by!

Mi Amour! Paris meets Poppies

Hey Guys!
Today I am sharing with you another card from the Occasions Catalog by Stampin’ Up! I LOVE the stamp sets Painted Poppies and Parisian Beauty. So, putting them together is a No Brainer for me! I got the stem from the stamp set Daisy Lane because I wanted the flower to have one. Surprisingly, I got the DSP from the Sale-A-Bration catalog the Golden Honey Specialty DSP. It’s cool because the inside of the card shows the other side.

Don’t you love that you can see the Wink of Stella on the flower?!

Here is a pic of the inside:

I used the Honey Bee Stamp set to bring in the DSP that you can see on the inside (not shown here)

For both the inside and front I used a strip of Gold Foil to set the ‘line’ where the DSP starts. I love black and white cards with a punch of color, don’t you? Also, I added the Champagne Rhinestones to the front to give it some added sparkle. Gotta have sparkle!

Here is the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
Honey Bee, Painted Poppies, Daisy Lane

Inks:
Memento Black
Blends: Calypso Coral, Old Olive

Cardstock:
Basic Black 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, scrap for ‘Amour’
Whisper White 6 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ scored at 4″ on long side
Golden Honey DSP 1 1/2″ x 5 1/4″
Gold Foil 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ (x2)

Misc:
Champagne Rhinestones
Parisian Dies
Wink of Stella
Paper snips for cutting out flower/stem
Dimensionals

I hope you like this card as much as I do! Usually, I don’t come up with my own designs, but since there aren’t many samples out there, I had to this time! Please let me know what you think!

If you are looking for a Demonstrator and live in the US, let me know what I can do to help you in your creative process! I can mail you out a catalog if you need one, and if you purchase from my Online Store I will send you a handmade card, a small thank you gift and 30 +/- tutorials that change every month!

Hope you come back to see me!
