Every now and then I have to go through my current stamp sets to see what I have not used in a while. Painted Poppies is one of those sets that has not seen a lot of ink lately. It is a cute set that has fun coordinating dies called Painted Labels. The dies cut out some of the images in the stamp set but it also has a nice border die, a couple of label dies and a fun circle die. I decided this was a fun set to get out and use again.
To make this card I first stamped the flower heads and leaves in Mossy Meadow ink and colored them using Fresh Freesia, Daffodil Delight, Pale Papaya and Mossy Meadow Blends. Then I stamped the small background poppies on a piece of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the stems only from the smaller flower and colored them in with a Blends. I added some Balmy Blue splatters to the background to make it look like the sky. Then I adhered all the pieces using Dimensionals.
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from Charming Sentiments in Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder on a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock. I adhered that to the card using Dimensionals too.
I wish everyone has a very Happy and Healthy New Year and lots of fun this weekend! We are going to have some of our grandchildren spending the night to celebrate with us. Since they are so young, I have them watch last year’s ball drop and we blow horns and make lots of noise and then they go to bed. They are just too young to stay up until midnight and we are too old to do so!
