Purple Posy Poppy Birthday!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a beautiful card featuring the Peaceful Moments Bundle and the Playing with Patterns 6” x 6” DSP! First though, you have to try and say Purple Posy Poppies three times fast! Lol I’ve started getting back into the habit of when I make a card, that I actually use up the DSP design and make several of that card. This way I have several cards to add to my stash AND I’m using up my DSP, not being a hoarder! On top of this, making today’s card really gave my new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine a real work out! I can honestly say that I’m really enjoying this new machine! Easy to use, quieter than my old Big Shot, and cutting is a lot easier, especially when you use adhesive sheets on the back of your cardstock. Before, I would have to run the die and cardstock thru the Big Shot 2-3 times to make sure that the die was cutting thru the layers, but I only had to one time with the new machine! Yay!

The base layer is this design from the Playing with Patterns 6” x 6” DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the rest of the card front, you will need:

1. Using Purple Posy cardstock, cut the small and large poppy background die and the oval flower bud die.

2. Using Highland Heather cardstock, first play some adhesive sheet on the back of the cardstock and use the small and large outline dies to cut out.

3. Using Crushed Curry cardstock, use the two stamen dies shown to cut out.

4. Using Granny Apple Green cardstock, use the leaf background die to cut out two pieces and one of the small bud stem die.

5. Using Old Olive cardstock, first place some adhesive sheet on the back of the cardstock and use the leaf outline dies to cut out two.

6. Cut a 2 ¼” piece of the Purple Posy Scalloped Linen Ribbon as shown.

7. On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Highland Heather in and punch out with the 1 ½” Circle Punch.

8. You will use two of the 7mm Purple Posy and one of the 7mm Crushed Curry Resin Dots, not shown.

Peel the adhesive backing from the outline die cut cardstock and apply it to the coordinating background die cut. I used liquid glue to adhere the stamen to the poppies as shown and the flower bud die cut to the stem die cut:

I first arranged the poppies and leaves on the DSP base layer, then adhered the leaves and large poppy to the DSP:

I used dimensionals to adhere the small poppy, adhesive for the flower bud and ribbon, and then the punched sentiments with dimensionals over the ribbon as shown:

This completed piece is adhered to a Thick Whisper White cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”, and placed the resin dots as shown:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Highland Heather ink, and adhere the ¾” strip of DSP along the bottom, trimming off the excess:

Thank goodness for Adhesive Sheets!! I am so happy Stampin’ Up! brought this back, makes work like this sooo much easier! No more mess from glue, on the cardstock, on my fingers, and wherever else glue can manage to get on!! You know what I’m talking about if you’ve ever tried to glue intricate layers together!!

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
