Swooning over Purple Polka Dots

Creating with the Peaceful Poppies product suite.

 

Hello everyone!

 

I had the opportunity to enjoy some fun crafting time with my friend Kurstan last week while I was in California for my Spring Luau Weekend Retreat, which we co-hosted.  It is alwasy sooo fun to create with fellow demonstrators.  I chose to work with the Painted Poppies stamp set from the Peaceful Poppies product suite, in preparation for my upcoming February class-to-go, and this card came together so easily. 

 

I LOVE it!

 

 

The Peaceful Moments bundle pairs perfectly!

 

Maybe it's the colors, or the simplicity of the big flowers.  I'm not sure, but...it's a favorite!

 

The Peaceful Poppies product suite is a large grouping of products from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog.  It consists of 2 stamp and die bundles, which are interchangeable, plus designer paper, ribbon, embellishments and cool paper elements.  I used this product suite on my last project here as well.

 

Today's card brings in the gorgeous Peaceful Poppies designer paper, and this Blackberry Bliss polka dot print is my favorite!

 

 

Beautiful Blackberry Bliss Polka Dot paper is my favorite!

Color Fusers Blog Hop February 2020

Color Fusers February Color Challenge

 

Hello!  And welcome to the Color Fusers blog hop!

 

 

Color Fusers February 2020 color challenge

 

Today's project uses a variety of products from the Occasions catalog. But the real star is this gorgeous Parisian Flourish Embossing folder. Isn't it beautiful?

 

  
Beautiful Parisian Flourish embossing folder
 

 

 

I paired it with poppies die cut from the outline dies in the Poppy Moments die set.  This heartfelt sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  I love these fonts.  And the sentiments are versatile, and cover just about everything.  

 

 

 

The dies and stamp set are from the Peaceful Poppies product suite, which includes 2 stamp and die bundles.  The images, dies, and sentiments are all interchangeable, and allow for endless possibilities in creating your projects.  

 

 

 

 

To create this project:

  • Cut a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Blushing Bride card base, scored at 4 1/4"
  • Cut a 3 3/4" x 5" Early Espresso cardstock layer
  • Cut a 3 3/4" x 5" Blushing Bride cardstock layer, embossed with the Parisian Flourish embossing folder

Layer the embossed layer offset over the Early Espresso layer, and adhere to card front.  Die cut the poppy outline flowers from Sahara Sand cardstock.  Die cut the floral centers from Early Espresso cardstock, and adhere to flowers.  Stamp label background splatter in Blushing Bride ink, and sentiment in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.   Die cut with the label die from the Painted Poppies die set.  Die cut a second label from Early Espresso cardstock, cut in half, and layer behind the sentiment.  Adhere sentiment to card front.  Embellish with a ribbon bow and sequins from the Peaceful Poppies sequins collection.

3-D Tutorial Blog Hop

Feb 3D tut hop card-2

 

Welcome back to the 3-D tutorial blog hop.  I am happy you are joining us again today!

 

One of my favorite designer papers in the Occasions catalog is from the From My Heart collection.  And although this was part of our Valentine line, it is versatile enough to use year round.  I wanted to use this favorite piece to create some non-Valentine projects, so today's post features an adorable thank you card, which coordinates with the 3-D birthday project featured in this month's tutorial.

 

 

 

Sometimes we find ourselves needing a quick card, and this one certainly fits the bill.  It's all about the paper.  This designer paper is amazing!  It's gorgeous, shiny, and red -- my favorite color!  Beautiful paper does all the work for you,.

 

From My Heart designer paper is gorgeous!

 

To create this project:

  • cut a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock, and score at 4 1/4"
  • cut piece of Whisper White cardstck 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
  • cut a piece of designer paper 2 1/4" x 4 1/4"

Adhere designer paper along bottom edge of Whisper White layer.  Stamp sentiment in Memento Black ink above designer paper.  Stamp bugs, and color with blends.  Add gems as desired.  Tie a bow in Real Red ribbon around white layer, along top edge of designer paper, and adhere to card front.  Stamp sentiment inside if desired.

This is just one of the gorgeous product suites in the upcoming Occasions catalog, and I knew I would love working with it!  in fact, the Occasions catalog is packed with amazingness!  I  know you will love it!  And even better, these products will be available later this week!

 

The detail in this suite is amazing!  And beautiful projects come together so easily. 

 

 

The Heart Punch Pack coordinates perfectly with the Parisian Blossoms suite!

 

Stampin' Up! does product coordination like no other!  Not only do we have awesome product suites, but the products from different suites can be paired for even more options!  I love how the From My Heart suite Heart Punch Pack coordinates so well on this project, and how it allows the foil accents on this designer paper to shine!

 

The script designer paper is my favorite in the Parisian Blossom designer paper collection.

 

Isn't it gorgeous?

 

The champagne foil accents on the Parisian Blossoms designer paper are gorgeous!

 

To make this card:

  • cut a Merry Merlot card base 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2"
  • Cut a Petal Pink layer 3 3/4" x 5" and emboss with the Parisian Flourish embossing folder
  • cut a piece of designer paper 3 5/8" x 2 1/2"
  • cut a strip of Whisper White cardstock 1"x 3 1/2"

 

Layer the designer paper and Petal Pink embossed layer onto the card base.  Die cut an Eiffel Tower and adhere to card front.  Add a punched heart layered onto a scalloped heart punch, and place over tower.  Stamp sentiment in Merry Merlot ink with Petal Pink detail below, and adhere to card front with dimensionals, covering the top edge of designer paper.  Add a Petal Pink ribbon bow.

 

So, I bet you are wondering about this tutorial.
