Deepest Sympathy with Painted Poppies

My card this week is a sympathy card created with the stamp sets Painted Poppies, Peaceful Moments and Heal your Heart. I also created this card for the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Pool Party, Starry Night and Pumpkin Pie.

I started with a Basic White card base and stamped the texture with the stamp from the Painted Poppies set in Starry Night., The Pumpkin Pie die cut poppy is framed with silver foil and layered over Shimmery White card stock. The leaves were die cut from Starry Night and Pool Party. The Shimmery White layer is framed with Pool Party and Starry Night. The inside of the card I stamped with the poppies images from the Painted Poppies and stamped with the sentiment from Sale-a-bration Heal Your Heart set.

A Poppy Moments Greeting

When I create a card inspiration comes from many sources.  For this week’s card I was inspired by the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog and this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge. I flipped the sketch and found a card in the catalog on page 178 as inspiration to create my Poppy Moments card.

I started with a Purple Posy card base then embossed Whisper White card stock with the Subtle 3D Embossing folder.  I love the texture this folder creates especially on Whisper White card stock because it makes the paper look like watercolor paper.  Using the Poppy Moments die set I die cut the poppy in Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.  I sponged Daffodil Delight ink on the white part of the poppy.  The centers I also die cut from Basic Black card stock, I also die cut two of the buds from Whisper White then sponged with Daffodil Delight and also die cut one in Daffodil Delight.  The leaves I die cut from Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green.  The butterfly I stamped in Momento Black from the Butterfly Gala stamp set then die cut with the Butterfly Duet punch then colored with Highland Heather and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.

The banner strips I cut from Gray Granite and Basic Gray card stock then snipped the ends of the Basic Gray one.  I sponged the banners, poppy centers and buds with Champagne Mist Shimmer paint for sparkle.  I also die cut Silver foil foliage using the Sprig punch.  I use this punch often to add these sprigs with other leaves.  I used tear and tape adhesive for the banners.  Dimensionals and glue dots to adhere leaves and poppies.  I also added basic rhinestones for more sparkle.   This card came together quickly.

Here is the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch.  Check out the link and see what the other designers have created.  I hope it inspires you to join us.
