It’s almost time for the “Most Wonderful Time of the Year” at Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration (SAB) time. Today’s blog features the Peaceful Moments Bundle – a new bundle in the new Mini Catalog coming out January 3rd. I swear it is the best Catalog yet with many beautiful stamps set and it goes without saying the Free SAB items are amazing. To make the card below you need the new Peaceful Moments Bundle and when you order it you get to choose a SAB item for FREE. My sister has a birthday in December so it’s always nice to make something different than Christmas projects for at least one item. This was her birthday card.
I used Poppy Parade and Calypso Coral for the poppies, Mossy Meadow and Old Olive for the leaves and Petal Pink for the background and sentiment. And of course, black for the poppy centres, card base and background sentiment. This card literally makes itself with the beautiful Peaceful Poppies DSP and sequins.
I cut out the poppies and leaves and layered them together using Multipurpose glue. I mounted the larger poppy on the background and popped the other one up using dimensional. The leaves I just positioned where I felt they looked nice and glued them down to the background piece. To make the black piece behind the sentiment and the Petal Pink background behind the poppies, I used the dies from Painted Labels Dies (another new poppy set in the Mini Catalog) and cut it partway by putting the top big shot plate only part way, moved the die and then positioned the top plate over the part left to cut. This made the die cut piece larger. I adhered with Stamin’ dimensionals.
Products used are:
- 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ Basic Black CS scored at 4 1/4
- scraps of Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow CS for die cuts
- 4″ x 4″ piece of Petal pink for the background and sentiment
- 2″ x 3″ scrap of Basic Black for background sentiment
- 4″ x 5 1/4″ Peaceful Poppies DSP
- Peaceful Poppies sequins placed where you like them and adhered with a mini glue dot
