Painted Pleasant Poppies Card

I couldn’t help myself, I had to use the two new embossing folders from the Stampin’ Up! 2013 Holiday Catalog again for my card share today.  Can you tell that I love them??  The new catalog has some fantastic accessories!  Anyway, I pulled out my Aqua Painter and painted the Pleasant Poppies image to create my card.  I used the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 272 to inspire my design.

Pleasant Poppies

I started by embossing a Calypso Coral card stock panel with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder.  I adhered a panel of Whisper White card stock, then a panel of Primrose Petals DSP from the 2012-14 In Color DSP Stacks to the embossed panel with SNAIL.  Then I cut Calypso Coral, Sahara Sand and Primrose Petals DSP banners from the DSP Stacks using the Bitty Banners Framelits and I adhered them with SNAIL to Whisper White banners that I’d cut using the larger banner framelit from the Bitty Banners Framelits set.  I adhered the layered banners to the card front with SNAIL, then adhered a Calypso Coral card stock circle that I’d cut with the Circles Collection Framelits die and embossed with the Pretty Print Embossing Folder over the banners with SNAIL.

Next, I stamped the Pleasant Poppies image in VersaMark ink on a Whisper White panel, sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I painted the poppy images using my Aqua Painter and ink pads, let it dry completely, cut it out with a Circles Collection Framelits die and adhered it to the Calypso Coral embossed panel with SNAIL.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Loving Thoughts stamp set in Calypso Coral ink on a Whisper White strip, adhered it to a Calypso Coral card stock strip with SNAIL, snipped the banner end with my Paper Snips and adhered the layered banner to the card front with SNAIL.  I finished the card front by placing one of the Antique Brads through the end of the sentiment, then adhering the layered card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals to a Primrose Petals card base.

I finished the inside of the card by stamping the Pleasant Poppies image again in Primrose Petals ink on a Whisper White panel.
