Don't overlook the pretty field of poppies image in the Painted Poppies stamp set. It creates a lovely border or background image on your projects. I love how it's featured here as the focal point on this easy-to-create card from my Peaceful Poppies LIVE Class.
Field of Flowers—I started with a 5" x 3-3/4" piece of Whisper White and I stamped the flowers across the middle, leaving about 1" of white space underneath. Next I colored in the poppies using the Dark Poppy Parade and Dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends Markers. Notice that I just added a bit of color to the center of the flowers without filling in the color completely. Leaving a little white space around the edges gives the flowers a lighter more artsy look.
Next, I stamped the Painted Poppies splotch image in Pool Party ink just above the row of flowers to add some interest and give the field of poppies some additional texture. It's that soft textured background that really makes the card, in my opinion.
Background Basics—I mounted the stamped layer onto a 5-1/8" x 3-7/8" piece of Basic Black, then adhered it to a Bermuda Bay card base. I added a 5" x 3/4" strip of Peaceful Poppies striped Designer Series Paper along the bottom to give card a little visual weight along the bottom.
Sweet Sentiment—The Painted Poppies sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a 3-3/4" x 1/2" strip of Pool Party cardstock, fishtail cut one end and popped up with Dimensionals.
Finishing Touches—I added just a few Pool Party jewels from the Holiday Rhinestones pack in the flower field, as well as on the sentiment banner.
Too Cool team member Janet Shinn made a similar card for one of our team swaps in a fabulous color combo!
Flower Focal Point—Janet began by stamping the same Painted Poppies image in Memento Black across the bottom of a 5-1/2" x 2-1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock. She used the Light Rich Razzleberry and Light Lovely Lipstick Stampin' Blends to color in her poppies. She stamped the background splotches in Lovely Lipstick and Rich Razzleberry inks stamped off one time for a lighter look.
Janet also used a brayer to add a little bit of Pool Party to the top edge of the focal point for a lovely sky. She finished by stamping a retired Forever Lovely greeting in Rich Razzleberry ink. It's mounted onto a 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" layer of Basic Black.
Background Basics—Next, Janet added a 5-1/2" x 1" strip of Peaceful Poppies DSP along the bottom of the black layer. She then wrapped some 1/2" Black Satin Ribbon around the layer, securing the ends on the back. She added a Black Satin knot on the side of the ribbon with a Glue Dot to make a faux-bow. Cute!
Finishing Touches—Janet finished by mounting the black layer onto a Thick Whisper White card base and adding some Rhinestone Jewels that she colored with Lovely Lipstick Stampin' Blends Markers.
