Today we set aside to remember those who gave their lives in service for our nation. I am so grateful to those who have served and sacrificed and who continue to serve to give us the freedom we enjoy in Australia.
To commemorate this occasion I thought a card made with our poppies stamp set would be perfect. This double set of stamps and dies are packed with different sized poppies, leaves and sentiments to suit any of your card designs.
I followed this sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches to create a clean and simple card.
The poppy was stamped in Tuxedo Black and coloured with the Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends. This was then die cut and added to a die cut swirl from the Painted Labels Dies.
The Brick & Mortar embossed panel was mounted with Stampin’ Dimensionals onto the Night of Navy card base creating depth with tone on tone layering. I used some scrap Mossy Meadow cardstock and Forever Greenery DSP to create the stripes on the sketch.
I added some Mossy Meadow Linen Trim which is a brand new product from the upcoming catalogue. If you would like to receive a copy of the new catalogue, please contact me on the button below.

What??? Yes, it can be done. That was the callenge over at As You See it Challenges.
Stampin’ Up! have several stamp sets that would work well for a quick floral creation. I chose the beautiful Painted Poppies stamp set. This set really lends itself to creating super quick cards with ‘blotchy’ fill in images – my all time favourite for adding quick colour.
I created the background by embossing Whisper White cardstock with the Pinewood Plank embossing folder, adding colour using the Direct to Paper technique. I just love a technique that gives a nice effect with little effort and this is one of those.
This card was stepped up by colouring the floral images with Lovely Lipstick and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends.
This is the card I created on my Facebook Live. All I changed up was the glimmer dots and that brings out the Pear Pizzazz stamping more,
The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set which has sentiments to suit all kinds of occasions. So you could create this same card in a variety of colours and have them ready to go.
Including die cutting, this entire card took me between 8-10 minutes to create. You can see me make this card in the video I’ve shared. The video is a little bit longer in length, only because there were operator issues!

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.
