Painted Poppies CASE the Catalog

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you another Card for my CASE the Catalog Series.  Today's card was one that I received as part of a swap that I took part in back in November.  We were all assigned a different stamp set or bundle from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure or the January-June Mini Catalog to CASE.  As a reminder CASE means Copy And Share Everything or Copy and Selectively Edit.  This card was done by Elizabeth Mayfield-Hart of Spread Joy Stamping.  I have linked her blog so you can check out all the great projects Elizabeth comes up with.  Here's the card that Elizabeth picked to CASE from the Catalog.

Tips & Tricks: 

This is a varly easy card to reproduce and I would actually consider it to be more on the #simplestamping side of the crafting spectrum.  The card base is a piece of Calypso Coral Cardstock cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2 to make a side folding card base.  Next Elizabeth stamped the poppy image from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set.  She stamped it a couple of times along the bottom of the Poppy Parade layer (3 3/4 x 5 1/2).  This can be done two different ways.  One with just the stamp and a clear block.  Or, you can also do this by using the Stamparatus.  

I not sure if Elizabeth used Stazon or Tuxedo Black ink for the stamping, but I am willing to suggest that it's probably Stazon Jet Black ink.  I think that this is the ink that was used because of how dark black it is stamped.  Tuxedo Black is really just a dark dark charcoal gray color and not a true true black.  The sentiment came from the matching stamp set Peaceful Moments.  Both of these stamp sets work together beautifully.  The Painted Poppies is all about the imagery and so in contrast the Peaceful Moments is all sentiments that can go with the Painted Poppies set or with any set you would like.  
Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you have a wonderful day and the finish of your weekend.  If you need any of the supplies you've seen today; you will find them all listed in the shopping list below.

Painted Poppies & Peaceful Moments Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the card that I made last night during my weekly Facebook Live.  Each week I do a Facebook Live featuring a fun project or projects to you right in your home at 8 pm CST.  This week I played with products from the new Mini Catalog.  I used products from the Peaceful Poppies Suite.  Here's a look at the project.

Tips & Tricks: 

For my card today I used the Painted Poppies Stamp Set along with the Peaceful Moments Bundle to create the beautiful floral card.  I love the Painted Poppies Stamp set and the Peaceful Moments stamp set they are both in my top 10 for the Spring.  The Painted Poppies Stamp Set is inspired by a field of poppies and features beautiful line-art images you can fill in with your choice of coloring techniques.  The Peaceful Moments Stamp set features greetings, greetings, and more greetings. Whatever the situation, the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set has the words you need to express your thoughts.  Here's a look at the entire suite of products.  
Being a watercolor person I love the designer series paper because I can create a card without having to drag out any paints.  It's all done for me without any mess.  Which was why I pulled it into my card today.  
But the main star of this card is the Poppy Moments Dies.  With these dies you can 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. 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.  These dies are so easy and fun to play with.
