Painted Poppies Sympathy Card

Hello! Today’s card is a sympathy card using the Painted Poppies stamp set. I just love this stamp set and I am so happy it carried over from our mini catalog. You can find it in our newest catalog (2020- 2021) on page 18. This stamp set coordinates with the Painted Labels dies on page 177.

Card Recipe:

~ Cut card stock at 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” then score at 4-1/4”. I used Cajun Craze for my base. While you have the Cajun Craze out, cut 3 squares at 1-9/16” x 1-9/16”. (Connie Stewart at Simply Simple Stamping has an excellent tutorial on how to read a ruler).

~ Cut Whisper White card stock at 4-1/8” x 5-3/8”. I ran this piece through my die cutting machine using the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder. You could skip this step, although I do like a bit of texture to my cards. Now is the time to cut your 3 squares at 1-1/2” x 1-1/2”.

~ Cut a strip of Old Olive card stock at 1” x 4-1/8”. I had some old ribbon that I ran across the front and adhered to the back of this.

~ Using your Layering Circles dies, cut a piece of Whisper White and Old Olive. If you do not have the dies, use the appropriate sized punch for your card.

~ Now to stamp! I stamped my images in Terracotta Tile. I wanted to use Cajun Craze, but my ink pad dried up! (This is why we should order ink refills!). I love that speckled pattern using the Old Olive at the base of the flowers. I colored in the stems and leaf using Old Olive ink and the flowers using the Dark and Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends. I think these colors gave this card a nice, soft look.

~ Adhere everything together. Pop the flower images and sentiment up on dimensionals and add some bling.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card. If you are in the United States and would like to place an order, please visit my on-line store. I do send a complimentary catalog (if requested) with orders over $25.00 and a handmade Thank-You card. For orders over $50.00, I also add a small gift.

Colleen Light Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and DIY Crafter I love all paper crafting and I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! Independent demonstrator since 2018. Not only do I love the Stampin’ Up products but I am also working towards my quilling accreditation through the Quilling Guild. You will see some of those cards pop up every now and then. I started this latest paper crafting hobby of mine following an accident. I use it as my own form of occupational therapy (we nurses can get creative with our therapies.. haha). What I found was a great admiration for my fellow creative demonstrators and a great sense of community. I especially enjoy sending out my hand-crafted cards. It makes me happy when people tell me they save the cards!! If you are in the United States, I would love to be your demonstrator or have you as a member of my team. Check out the details of becoming a demonstrator at my on-line store (the discounts are definitely helpful). Feel free to drop me a comment! I look forward to working with you.
