Don't be intimidate, like me.

  • Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies and Painted Labels Dies
  • Poppy Moments Dies for stunning backgrounds
  • Final 3 days of Year End Closeout 

Poppy Moments Dies for Stunning Backgrounds

I have to admit that the Peaceful Poppies Suite has so many piece that I've been intimidated to work with both sets of the coordinating Dies. The suite includes two stamp sets:  Painted Poppies and Peaceful Movement, and two sets of Dies:  Painted Labels and Poppy Moments.  Today, I finally decide I was ready to tackle all of these wonderful dies.  Oh my gosh!  I love the outcome.  See page 27 of the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog.  The background die I used from the Poppy Moments Dies is shown in more detail in the samples on that page.  While my card is relatively simple, I love all the detail the dies add.  The pieces remove so easily.

The basecard is Thick Whisper White.  Then another layer of Whisper White is die cut with a die from the Poppy Moments Dies.  You really have to use the die to see how beautiful it is.           

The flowers and two leaves are from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set.  I used the Painted Labels Dies to die cut the flowers and leaves and sentiment label.  The sentiments are from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set.  I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink for the sentiments.    

To complete my card, I used a few of the gold sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins to add interest. 

Below is the series of cards I've been working on using the Peaceful Poppies Suite.  I've only begun to explore the different looks I can get with this stamp set.  If you're wondering which is the first set to go onto your Shopping List when customers are able to order from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog on January 3, my recommendation is to get the entire Peaceful Poppies Suite.  You'll find it perfect for simple paper, ink and stamp projects, and then you'll love the sophisticate cards you create with the dies, Designer Series Papers, and coordinating accessories with this Suite.     


My current customers who have purchased within the past 6 months have now received their copies of the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalog.  You'll want to take a look at the entire Peaceful Poppies Suite on pp. 24 of the catalog.  Customers can begin ordering from the new catalog on January 3, 2020.  If you don't have a demonstrator and want a copy of the new, January - June 2020 Mini catalog, contact me.   I would love to be your Stampin' Up!
