Hello crafty friends,
Thank you for visiting my blog – Stamping Flair today. You may be starting here or coming from seeing the lovely Kate Bolt’s project. All of us in the Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop this month are bringing you a variety of projects from the Mini Catalogue. This catalogue runs through to June however the Sale-A-Bration promotion ends on the 31st March.
I chose the Painted Poppies bundle and Peaceful Moments bundle for my projects. Although I love the colour palette of the Peaceful Poppies suite, I chose a vastly different set of colours for my cards.
What I really like about this card is the simplicity of the layout. Adding the different designs of the Smoky Slate Designer Series Paper creates interest. The stamping is simple – stamp the line image in Tuxedo Black and add the ‘splotches’ (you know what I mean!) stamp in Daffodil Delight.
I embossed the Whisper White panel in the beautiful Stone embossing folder. This is part of the Power of Hope Sale-A-Bration bundle which is a free product that can be earned with a $180 order.
This next card involved my new favourite – Pigment Sprinkles. I started off by die cutting the flower base from Shimmery White cardstock. Then I spritzed with water and sprinkled Daffodil Delight Pigment Sprinkles on it. Spritz a bit more water – if required. Little is much when using this product. So start with a few taps on the bottle to get some powder out and then increase to the depth of colour you like.
Isn’t is just lovely how the sprinkles ‘burst’ and create it’s own design?
TIP: Make sure your hands are completely dry before moving onto any other part of your card as any liquid will activate it – even glue! First hand experience!
I love these dies as there are so many possibilities for layering and creating different looks. The leaves are 2 separate dies – one which I cut the Basic Gray base and the other, Whisper White. These were then layered to create this look. The swirly circle has been cut in half, reattached and the joins camouflaged with those leaves. I found it was too large for my design and so I adapted.
The vellum leaves and black decorative border are from the Peaceful Poppies Elements.
I hope you have been inspired with my poppy projects. The products I have used are listed at the end of this post. With one month left to get free products, it’s the ideal chance for you to splurge on your favourites. Let me know in the comments what your favourites are and your thoughts on these cards. For lots of other ideas and inspiration, make sure you stop by all the other blog hop participants to see what they have created and leave share the love with them.
