A quick card using Painted Poppies

Although I have the coordinating dies for the Peaceful Poppies Suite, I've been playing with just the stamp sets in this Suite from the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalog that will go live for customers January 3.  This is another sneak peek so you get an early look at what you can make with the sets in this suite before you drop your hard-earned dollars on new products.  Today's card uses a technique perfect for the little flowers stamp in the Painted Poppies Stamp Set.  Instead of coloring each individual flower, simply stamp the background stamp and leave it at that!  Of course, I wanted a little more color on my flowers so the few that didn't have a colored background from the layering stamp, I quickly filled in with a Mongo Melody Blends Marker. Looking at the photo, the colors are a little darker than I expected.  I may redo the card stampin' off the Pumpkin Pie and Mango Melody as the flowers are a little lost on this version.   

Card idea using Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies Stamp Set

I used a Mango Melody base card.  Then the main image is matted with Granny Apple Green.  The main image is Whisper White with the flowers stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

The stamp set includes background images that I stamped twice.  Once in Pumpkin Pie and once in Mango Melody.  The large flower images on the bottom of the card is also from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set. It is stamped in Mango Melody.  

The sentiments are from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set, which is a second stamp set in the Peaceful Poppies Suite.  Each sentiment is stamped on Basic Black Cardstock using Versamark Ink and then covered with White Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Then, the sentiments were heat set using my Heat Tool.  

Sneak Peek of the Stampin' Up! Peaceful Poppies Suite

I'm so impressed with the simple cards I can make with just the stamp sets in the Peaceful Poppies Suite.  These cards are just ink, paper and stamps.  (And a little embossing powder).  The suite includes so many great coordinating designer series paper, dies and embellishment, I can't wait to create additional cards using even more products from this suite. You'll love everything you make with this stamp set.
