Stamp Simply Summer Floral Release- Pretty Poppies and Delightful Dahlias!


Hi Friends!

Today I am sharing two cards that were created with the brand-new Summer Floral bundles- Pretty Poppies and Delightful Dahlias along with dies/other supplies (from Stamp Simply)!

This week we are celebrating the new release by sharing cards created with both sets- I hope you have a chance to check out the Stamp Simply blog to see the inspiration from the rest of our
Design Team!

I love both new floral bundles, Pretty Poppies and Delightful Dahlias- both are so versatile! This set of cards uses one sheet of Craft Consortium Grunge Light 6x6 paper layered behind the Mixed Media #1 die cut.

I am participating with the A Place To Start June 2021 Challenge #6- Create Your Own Challenge (Project Type- Card, Event- Encouragement, Trends- Embossing) and the Word Art Wednesday #495-#496 “Anything Goes” Challenge.

If you have not had a chance to visit the Stamp Simply blog or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create both cards:

Emboss two pieces of white cardstock with the Darice Wire Fence embossing folder, trim to 4” x 5 ¼”, adhere to a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” piece of olive cardstock.  Mount the card panel onto a white card base.

Ink the sentiments from the Pretty Poppies and Delightful Dahlias on white cardstock, die cut each with the Fishtail Sentiment Banners dies.

Using the Tim Holtz Mixed Media #1 corner die, die cut two from white cardstock panels and hand tear along the edges.

Choose a piece of Craft Consortium Grunge Light 6x6 paper (I chose one of the darker sheets with greens, purples and yellows). 

Place the torn Mixed Media die cut over the corner of the designer paper, trace a line under the outside edge of the torn die cut, trim the designer paper and adhere the designer paper to the back of the Mixed Media die cut.

Ink the floral image from Pretty Poppies and Delightful Dahlias using Versafine Onyx Black ink, stamp onto white cardstock and set the ink with a heat tool.

Watercolor the images using water-based markers and once you are satisfied with the coloring, die cut each floral image with the coordinating die.  

Layer two pieces of scrap white cardstock together and die cut one of each of the coordinating floral dies.  Layer the blank die cuts behind each of the colored floral die-cut images (this gives the floral images additional thickness). 

Adhere the layered Mixed Media die cut to the card front, mount the banner die cut sentiment and add the floral die cut with dimensional foam (or chipboard).

Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the floral petals and add the olive seam binding bow to finish off the card.

The flowers are gorgeous!! And I love how you did the background die with a bit of "grunge" showing through. It's a lovely accent to each flower.
