Stampin' Up! Peaceful Moments & Poppy Moments Dies

Two of the bundles that will carry over to the new Stampin' Up! annual catalog, releasing June 3, are the Peaceful Moments Bundle and Dressed to Impress Bundle.  Today I'm using both on the cards I created for Mother's Day.  Inspiration for this card came from the samples printed in the new June Annual catalog.  I received my copy in the mail today, as did many other demonstrators, and when I came across this card design in the catalog, I had to give it my own twist.  This isn't your typical fast, easy card.  It takes time to die cut all of the Poppies and Leaves in the Poppy Moments Dies.  But the end result is so worth it!  I love how the tone on tone die cuts give the card additional texture!.  If either of the Peaceful Moments Bundle or the Dressed to Impress Bundle are on your shopping list, you'll want to pick them up on or before June 2 to get the 10% savings when purchasing them as a bundle.  The bundle pricing goes away in the new catalog, although you'll be able to purchase these sets as individual items, without the bundle discount. If there are other bundles you've had your eye on, be sure to purchase them before the release of the new annual catalog. It's all in the Retiring Products information I posted in my recent post.  Order your favorites before they are gone.

The basecard for today's card is Crumb Cake.  Then several of the Poppy Moments Dies are used to die cut more Crumb Cake poppy images and leaf images to layer on the Crumb Cake base card.  Then I used more of the dies from the Poppy Moments Dies to create leaves in Mossy Meadow, buds using Pear Pizzazz and Flirty Flamingo, and Poppies in Blushing Bride and Flirty Flamingo. I used Multipurpose Glue to adhere all of these images, however, I do recommend that you place your items on a Silicone Craft Sheet when apply glue.  That way, images won't stick to your scrap paper while applying glue.   Simply use a baby wipe or soap and water to clean excess glue off your Silicone Craft Sheet.

The sentiments I used are from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set and the Dressed to Impress Stamp Set.  I stamped the sentiments on Whisper White cardstock using Soft Suede ink.  I layered them over a piece of Rococo Rose 1/2 Scalloped Linen Ribbon.  I used the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends Marker to change the scalloped edging from Rococo Rose to Flirty Flamingo to match my card. 

I think the Poppies Moments is a versatile set you'll want in your stash.  You'll find it's a beautiful set to use for many different occasions.  It's a great time to keep stampin' as we think of others who would love to know you're thinking of them.  Sending handmade cards is a special way to stay in touch when you can't be with distant loved ones, and your cards will be greatly appreciated during these times.

The new Annual Stampin' Up catalogs will be available to customers June 2, and I've  submitted my list to Stampin' Up! to have catalogs sent directly to my customers who have purchased within the past 6 months.  They will receive their new catalogs mid- to late-May and can begin placing orders June 3.  If you don't have a demonstrator and want a copy of the upcoming Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, contact me.   I would love to be your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.
