Mix it up Monday!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is another fun “Mix it up Monday” card featuring two product suites, Peaceful Poppies and Country Club! Don’t you just love it when you can get more out of your products suites to create a completely different card? This can give you the opportunity to combine different colors and textures! I really wanted to create a card with the Poppy Moment Dies outside of the color combinations from the suite and use a few items that are on the retirement list, so I thought the Rococo Rose, Petal Pink, and gray color combination would be perfect!

The base layer is Petal Pink cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and the next layer is this design from the Country Club DSP, cut at 3 ¾” x 5”:

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

1. Stamp the sentiment from Peaceful Moments in Rococo Rose ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the smaller label die from Painted Labels Dies.

2. Stamp the small poppy stamp on Vellum cardstock in Whisper White Craft ink, heat emboss with White Embossing Powder, and cut out with the coordinating die.

3. For the leaves, use Basic Gray cardstock for the two bottom pieces and Smoky Slate for the two top pieces, these will be adhered together.

4. For the large poppy, use the Petal Pink Vellum cardstock for the large die, Rococo Rose cardstock for the petal outline, Petal Pink cardstock for the large stamen, and Rose Glimmer Paper for the small stamen.

5. You will need one each of the 4mm, 6mm, and 8mm In Color Faceted Dots, not pictured.

This is what the large poppy and two leaves will look like after adhering all the layers together with the Fine Tip Glue Pen:

Adhere the two base layers together, the leaves to the DSP layer, and use a dimensional (behind the poppy center) to adhere the large poppy:

I used a glue dot behind the center of the smaller poppies to adhere them to the DSP and then dimensionals for the sentiment piece:

This piece is then adhered to a Rococo Rose cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”, and then added the three Rococo Rose Faceted Dots:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼” and adhere a ¾” x 4” strip of DSP along the side:

Don’t you love how this card turned out? I love the color combination of Rococo Rose and Petal Pink! I chose not to use a sentiment for the inside of the card because it could really be used for a variety of occasions or you can leave it blank and simply write your note. The DSP, Faceted Dots, and Petal Pink Vellum Cardstock (Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock) are all on the retirement list, so don’t forget, all products on the retirement list are only “while supplies last”!

The focus is all on you!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and quick card featuring the Capture the Good stamp set! I recently purchase some of the new Shimmer Black Emboss Powder and thought it would be fun to give the camera from this stamp set a little sparkle! I wasn’t sure what to expect from the new embossing powder, but I really like how the shimmer is very subtle and you can really see it from an angle, which is nice and unlike glitter, if you were thinking that this embossing powder may be similar to.

The base layer is Seaside Spray cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and the next layer is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 3 ¾” x 5”:

You will also need a 1 ½” x 3 ¾” piece of Seaside Spray DSP from the 2019-2021 In Colors 6” x 6” DSP, stamp the camera in Versamark on Basic Gray cardstock, heat emboss with the Shimmer Black Emboss Powder, and fussy cut out:

I stamped the sentiment on the Whisper White cardstock in Basic Gray ink (stamping off once first) and then adhere to the Seaside Spray cardstock:

The sentiment is stamped on the DSP in Basic Gray ink several times, using my Stamparatus, to make sure the image is dark enough on the DSP, and then adhere the DSP onto the cardstock:

The base layer is adhered to a Basic Gray cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”, the camera is adhered with dimensionals, and I added one of the large Seaside Spray Faceted Dot to the middle of the camera lens:

The inside sentiment is on Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the accent stamp is stamped in Seaside Spray ink and the sentiment is stamped in Basic Gray ink:

Very quick and easy card, right?? Adding simple cardstock layers and creating your own “DSP” with a stamp is a quick and easy way to give your card that little extra! Add some heat embossing and some embellishments and you have a super cute card that will sure to brighten someone’s day!!
