Pink Poppies Thinking of You Card!

Today’s card is a “Thinking of You” card made with the Painted Poppies stamp set and the Poppy Moments Dies. These products are some of the prettiest Stampin’ Up! has ever made. 

Pink Poppy Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe

The soft pink is Blushing Bride ~ such a pretty soft greyish pink. It pairs so well with the Soft Sea Foam card stock and Vellum. The flowers and leaves are all cut using the Poppy Moments Dies. The full flowers were stamped using Versamark Ink, covered with Whisper White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set with a Heat Gun.

The Blushing Bride card base is layered with a piece of Whisper White card stock cut with a die from Nature’s Thoughts Dies and a piece of Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper. The poppies and leaves were then adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.

Every part of the Peaceful Poppies Suite is so pretty. They can be combined to create so many beautiful cards!

I’ve been waiting for a dog stamp set like this for a long time. And the punch is so cute!!! I have a little Yorkshire Terrier and, even though the dog in this set isn’t a Yorkie, it’s adorable. There are also times when a friend’s dog is sick or dies, and this stamp set is perfect. I love the little paw prints, the bone, and what about the dog house? It’s an all-around cute set 🙂

Stampin' Up! Wonderful Romance Card - Peggy Noe - stampinup

From the new Wonderful Romance stamp set I’ve used this large floral and leaf stamp. It’s so pretty I just had to watercolor it!! First I stamped it onto a piece of Shimmery White card stock using Sahara Sand ink. This creates very faint lines which give you the borders for watercoloring. (It’s called borderless watercoloring.)

Stampin' Up! Wonderful Romance - prettypapercards - stampinup

Using an Aqua Painter, I gently applied color and a bit of water to “color in” the stamped image. It was fun to use different shades of green to create depth. The colors are Granny Apple Green and Old Olive ink. The larger flowers are watercolored with Gorgeous Grape ink, and the tiny flowers in Petal Pink.

This stamp set has the cutest little stamp with tiny dots. I’ve stamped it all around the leaves and flowers ~ truthfully, I was having so much fun I just kept stamping those little cuties!!

Botanical Bliss Thinking of You!

Stampin' Up! Botanical Bliss - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Watercoloring is really fun ~ if you haven’t tried it, you really should. It’s super easy with our Aqua Painters, and I’ll show you how!

Stampin' Up! Botanical Bliss - Prettypapercards - stampinup

To create this card I used watercolor paper. If you’re going to use more than a bit of water, this is the paper to use. The leaves were stamped in Granny Apple Green and then immediately brushed with water using an Aqua Painter. Then I dropped some water from the Aqua Painter onto the paper, and stamped the flower three times using Melon Mambo ink.

Stampin' Up! Botanical Bliss Watercolor - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The Heat Tool was used to speed up the drying process. Then some dots were arbitrarily stamped using a stamp from the Artisan Textures set.

Stampin' Up! Botanical Bliss Watercolor - Prettypapercards - stampinup

The sentiment stamp is from the Climbing Orchid stamp set. The font is so nice!
