Stampin' Up! Poppy Moment Dies

The Peaceful Poppies Suite is such an incredible offering from Stampin Up!  It includes two stamp sets and two sets of dies, plus an assortment of coordinator products--designer series paper, sequins, ribbons, and die cuts.    

The images in the stamp sets work alone or can be combined with dies to create stunning elements for your cards.  I used the Poppy Moment Dies to create the beautiful poppies on today's card.      

T he basecard used on today's card is Pool Party.  Then I used a Vellum Cardstock layer dry embossed with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I used a print from the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper die cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  

I used the Painted Poppies Dies to cut Whisper White outlines and Vellum Cardstock to create these lovely poppies.  The centers are die cut out of Basic Black Cardstock.  The sentiment is from the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set.  I stamped it in Versamark ink and heat embossed it in White Emboss Powder.  To finish my card I added a bow in 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  The accents ae fro the retired Metallic Sequins collection.  You can use Blends Markers to color your sequins black to get the same effect.
