Painted Poppies Birthday

Painted_poppies_birthday

I love this stamp set. This month, I know I’ll be obsessing with this Painted Poppies Stamp Set. It’s available as a suite, as a bundle or all by itself, in the 2020 Mini Occasions Catalogue.

I used Basic Black for the card base – cut 4 1/4 x 11, score at 5 1/2″
Matte layer – Old Olive – 5 1/4 x 4
Front – Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5

Using Basic Gray, I stamped the verse stamp from the Very Verailles set, centred in the Whisper White

I stamped the design in Memento Tuxedo Black and used the random dot stamp to give a hint of colour with Poppy Parade and Old Olive.

I heat embossed the “Happy Birthday” on black card stock, using the Whisper White Embossing powder and cut it out, using the Classic Punch. Don’t forget to sweep your card stock with the embossing buddy before stamping with the Versamark, to avoid having embossing powder stick where you don’t want it. If necessary, you can use a small paint brush, to remove any unwanted embossing powder, before using the heat tool.

Once assembled, I applied a few of the frosted epoxy droplets, because…. every card needs bling!

Painted Poppies Birthday

Painted_poppies

I have a feeling that Painted Poppies and So Sentimental are going to be my new favourite stamp sets this season. I cased this design from Kylie Bertucci, a demonstrator in Australia.

My card base is Basic Gray 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.
The matte is Highland Heather, cut 5 1/4 x 4″
The front is Whisper White, 3 3/4 x 5″

The sentiment is from “So Sentimental” – (Occasions Mini Catalogue 2020), stamped in Basic Gray, and coloured with Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends.
I cut out the sentiment using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. ” So Sentimental” and “Stitched So sweetly” dies are bundled for a savings of 10%, in the Mini Catalogue, when you purchase both together.

Always in need of bling, I used the Highland heather dark Stampin Blend marker to colour some of the Basic Rhinestones, for the front of the card. I have a video almost ready to post.
