I think the Brushed Blooms Bundles is probably one of my all time favorite bundles from Stampin' Up! in the last couple years!  Mainly because of the wonderful Beautiful Brushstrokes Dies.  Which creates these beautiful layered die cut roses.

Life is Better With a Friend Like You

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card that I made using the die cut coloring hack I shared during this weeks Facebook Live.  If you missed that post and video you can click here to see it.  I used the Peaceful Moments Bundle to create my card for today's project.  The sentiment from today's card came from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set.  Here's a look at the card I created.

This is a little more geared toward the casual or avid crafter with all the die cutting involved.  The technique is the same just a little more die cutting involved.  I started out by cutting everything out using the Poppy Moments Dies.  I started out by cutting the Poppy Parade piece of cardstock first.  I cut it first to 4 1/2" x 3 1/4" and then ran it through the die cutting machine twice with the more decorative die.  Once facing one way and then flipped it around and cut it again in the other direction.
For the poppies and leaves I used the following cardstocks; Poppy Parade, Very Vanilla, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Shaded Spruce, and Pear Pizzazz.  I used the following ink to add the coloring for the die cuts.  I added a little Poppy Parade ink in the center of the Vanilla flower and added a little daffodil delight in the center.  I then added the craft white around the edges.  On the poppy parade flower I used poppy parade ink around the center and white around the edges.  For the buds I used Daffodil Delight at the base of the buds and white at the top just a little.  For the leaves I used Shaded Spruce on the dark part and came in and used a little white just around the edges.  I did the same what the Pear Pizzazz just but used the matching ink.  This allows for multiple tones and values on the same leaves and flowers. 
Once everything was cut colored and died I could put them together.  I glued everything together using Multipurpose liquid glue.  I popped the Poppy Parade die cut panel up on Stampin' Dimensionals in the center of a Pear Pizzazz card base (5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4).  I then arranged all the die cuts around the card popping some up with dimensionals and letting others flat on the die cut panel.  I stamped the sentiment in pear Pizzazz ink on a strip of Whisper White Cardstock cut at 5/8" x 4 1/4".  I tucked one end under the poppies just where the sentiment showed.
Thanks for dropping by I hope that you will give the die cut coloring hack a try.  If you need any of the supplies that I used today you can pick them up in my online store by clicking on the item in the product list below.

Case the Catalog Peaceful Moments

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you another one of the card that I received from the Case the Catalog Swap that I took part in recentently.  Sandy Risi was the person that created this Catalog Case for this Swap.  I wanted to take the time and share this super cute clean & simple card featuring products from the Peaceful Poppies Suite.  I love this card that came from the new January - June Mini Catalog.  Here's a look at the card.


This card design features the Poppy Moments Dies and the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper.  It's a clean and simple card design and could be changed up for any occasion.  I think that's one of the things that I like about the card Sandi decided to case.  It's a great little design but very versatile at the same time.   And you could use up some of your scraps to create it.


I also like this design because it allows you to showcase the designer series paper as well as the dies.  Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper features hand painted blooms and watercolor washes that make beautiful backgrounds or focal points for cards, scrapbook pages, and other paper crafts. Patterns include floral prints, stripes, polka dots, and more.
Create fancy, layered die-cut poppies, leaves, and more to add beauty and depth to your handmade cards, scrapbooks, journals, and other paper crafts using the Poppy Moments Dies just like was done here on today's card. Pair the dies with the coordinating Peaceful Moments Stamp Set to add heartfelt sentiments to your projects for birthdays, congratulations, sympathy, thank you, and more.  This is also the bundle that I am featuring in this month's Technique and Fancy Fold Club.  If you are interested in joining the club you can do so until the 20th.  You can find all the information by clicking on the image below.  The club was designed so that everyone will learn either a new fun fold or stamping technique.  It's also priced so that demonstrators can take part at the same price as anyone else.
 Happy Stampin'
