Painted Poppies Birthday Card

Painted Poppies Happy Birthday Card

My Painted Poppies Birthday card is not only pretty, but it is also quick and easy to make.  The Painted Poppies Bundle is one of my favorite items from the new SU! January to June 2020 Mini Catalog.  If you do not have a copy of your own, send me an email [email protected], and I will send you one.

Have you noticed the corner stamped Poppies? I repeated the design on both the front and inside of my card. I die cut the Black Foil Sheets, and Whisper White cardstock layers with the Stitched Rectangle dies.  Both the die-cutting and repeat stamping are easy to do and bring continuity to your overall design.  You might give it a try on your next card.

Coloring the field of poppies with the Blender Pen is fast and straightforward.  I used the Poppy Parade ink pad and a Blender Pen.  In contrast, I made some of the flowers dark and some light. As a result, the variety adds to the overall whimsy of this quick and easy card. The Blender Pens quickly add that all-important touch of color to my card.  I love the look and ease of my Painted Poppies Birthday Card.

Perfectly Plaid Christmas Card

Perfectly Plaid Christmas Card

My Perfectly Plaid Christmas card uses the classic Christmas Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper. Are you wondering where to find the beautiful copper dotted paper?  Look no further than the Copper Dotted Treat Bags from Stampin’ Up! I cut the bag into strips and used it as another copper accent for my card.

Have you noticed how I repeated the criss-cross pattern three times?  I used the Tufted embossing folder twice, once each on the Shaded Spruce cardstock and the Copper Foil paper. The Copper Dotted Treat Bags also carries out that same theme.  Repetition helps focus the viewer and brings continuity to your card.

Finally, I repeated the plaid on the inside of my card to carry out the overall plaid theme of my Perfectly Plaid Christmas card.

Heirloom Frames & Embossing Folders

Heirloom Frames & Embossing Folder

Aren’t the Heirloom Frames Dies and Embossing Folders beautiful? I was looking for something to enhance the Detailed Deer die and the Feels Like Frost DSP; I think the Heirloom Frames and embossing folders are perfect.

Check out the detail on the embossed oval — isn’t it amazing? It looks so complicated, however, die-cutting and embossing the oval is deceptively simple.  Be sure to watch my video below for a few simple tricks that simplify the process.

The small flourish at the bottom of my card is such a simple touch, but it helps to balance the sentiment. Both the greeting and the embellishment are available in the Dashing Deer stamp set.
