When I think of poppies, the red poppies in the fields in France come to mind. But these light pink poppies exude elegance. Paired with a primarily white on white color scheme, these cards are stunning in their simplicity. Not only that, but they were quick and easy to put together too!
All of these cards use the following supplies:
This card uses the masking technique. I stamped profile poppy on two post-it notes and cut them out on the outline. Then, I stamped two of these profile poppies on the card front. I covered them with the cut-out ones on sticky notes. I then stamped the other poppies over top of the post-it notes. Finally, I removed the sticky notes to reveal the line of poppies.
To get the Meerkat stamp set, be sure to check the Sale-A-Bration rewards in the lower left of your screen after you've ordered at least $50 in product.
Cut the larger circle out of the piece of Crumb Cake cardstock first. Then, adhere the Crumb Cake cardstock to your card front. Next, cut the smaller circle from the Soft Suede card front by positioning a smaller circle die inside the hole already cut from the Crumb Cake cardstock. Adhere the piece of Whisper White on the interior of the card. Finally, close the card and stamp the meerkat in the middle of the circular hole.
Use the Light Crumb Cake Stampin' Blend to color the sand under the meerkat. Then go over it with the Color Lifter to make it lighter. Add a little Light Flirty Flamingo to the meerkat's cheeks to give him extra personality!
The full sentiment stamp says: Happy Birthday to a Stand Up Guy. Carefully ink only the "Happy Birthday" and stamp it on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. Then, stamp the greeting above it and cut with the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes dies.
Adhere the Whisper White card front to the piece of Flirty Flamingo. Wrap a piece of Linen Thread around these 3 times and secure with tape on the back. Adhere this card front using Stampin' Dimensionals to the card front. Also use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the greeting.
Color the sand under their feet with the Light Crumb Cake. Then, go over it with the Color Lifter to make it lighter.
You don’t need a craft room overflowing with supplies to create beautiful cards. All it takes is stamps, ink, and paper. It’s as simple as that! I created this gorgeous card using the To a Wild Rose stamp set, Melon Mambo and Soft Suede ink, and whisper white card stock – plus a little bit of painter’s tape.
The To a Wild Rose stamp set has three stamps for the rose and coordinating leaves. The stamps are made to create variations in color. For this card, I only used two of the stamps. The third stamp is an outline stamp. I love the way this rose looks without the outline though! (Ok, I love it with the outline too. It’s simply a gorgeous stamp set!)
The stamps are also Dist-Ink-Tive stamps. The images have a photographic appearance. Because of this, you can use the same color ink (like I did) to stamp both of the layers, and it will still give you variations in colors.
When you peel away the tape, you are left with a clean white edge, perfectly framing your stamped images.
To finish this card, I added a strip of whisper white cardstock that I had stamped the greeting on. It’s as quick and easy as that!
While it’s simple to create beautiful cards with limited supplies, I have trouble stopping there! So, I created two more cards using the same background.
All three cards are elegant and easy to create!
