Peaceful Moments

This is one of the cards we made at our monthly stamp class.  It uses a new stamp and die set from the 2020 Spring Catalog called Peaceful Moments.  This Bundle is part of the Peaceful Poppies Suite.

To make this card I first cut out the background of the flower in Grapefruit Grove cardstock.  Then I cut out the details of the flowers in Terracotta Tile and Memento Black Ink.  I stamped the leaves in Garden Green Ink onto Garden Green cardstock and cut those out using the matching dies.  One really nice thing about this die set is it has two leaf dies you can save time by cutting them both out at the same time.  I also cut out the little bud in Grapefruit Grove and Garden Green cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock and used a die from another set that is included in the Peaceful Poppies Suite called Painted Labels.  I love how it all coordinates with each other.

After doing all the stamping and die cutting I first layered everything on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  It looked great but I decided to try a piece of Basic Black instead.  I love how the colors popped when I did this.  Lastly I added a few Peaceful Poppies sequins to add little sparkle.

I know it is a little late but I realized I haven’t posted any grandchildren at Christmas.  Rob and I could only spend the holiday with Olivia since the others live far away but everyone sent me pictures, which made me happy.

Here is Olivia.  She is seven months old already and cute as a button with the best disposition.

This is Princess Emy.  She is almost three but going on 16.  I am not sure how that happened so quickly!  She is very sweet and very sassy.

This is Nolan and Madelyn.  Nolan is two and Madelyn is 4 1/2 ( I said she was 4 and I got correctly very quickly!).  Nolan is the sweetest little boy and Madelyn is sweet and very silly

I am so fortunate to have amazing sons, daughter in laws and grandchildren.  I just recently retired so I am planning on spending a lot more time with all of them

Painted Poppies

I have to say, there are so many awesome products in the 2020 Spring Mini Catalog that I had a hard time deciding what to get.  I did know I definitely had to have the new products in the Peaceful Poppies Suite right away.  This Suite includes two stamp sets with two matching sets of dies, ribbon, Designer Series Paper, sequins and die cut printed accents.  Did you know you can order the entire suite with one item number?  Stampin’ Up!® has started doing this in their catalogs and it makes it so much easier to order everything you want.  The Peaceful Poppies Suite is featured on the catalog cover.  I love the colors used in these projects.  Another great thing SU started doing is listing the colors used on the main Suite page.

To make this card, I first stamped the flower from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Memento Ink and cut it out using the Painted Labels dies.  Then I cut out the two pieces of the leaves in Old Olive and Garden Green cardstock.  I cut out the square in Poppy Parade Ink using two nested Stitched Shapes dies.  I stamped the background poppies in Memento Black Ink and placed it behind the frame.  Then I layered everything together.

The other stamp set in this Suite is called Peaceful Moments. It is an all sentiment stamp set.   The matching dies are called Poppy Moments. I used a sentiment from this stamp set for my card.
