I mentioned yesterday that I was behind on Birthday cards.  So I have another one to share today.  I also used another of the DSP that are included in the 15% OFF Sale.  This one is a favorite of almost everyone in terms of the texture it gives to a card.  Can you guess which one that is?


Stampin' Up!, Painted Poppies, In Good Taste, Jackie Beers


If you guessed In Good Taste Designer Series Paper as the DSP, you are correct!  This piece is my favorite of all of the ones in the pack.  Misty Moonlight is my favorite of the new In Colors, and this piece has a touch of Misty Moonlight in the folds on the paper.

A little bit of a different touch to this card is that I stamped directly onto the DSP.  I love how the texture shows through these poppies.  I still colored them using the Stampin’ Blends in Just Jade and Purple Posy.

For the focal point, I stamped the single flower image and then die cut using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I used the 4th from largest die.  I colored this flower using the same Stampin’ Blends.  Then to give it a little background, I used the marker flick to give the splatter look.  I used the Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Write Marker and flicked the brush tip against the inside of the lid to “splatter” the card stock.  I wanted to tie in that piece to the DSP without doing a background layer.

The focal flower is raised with Dimensionals.  I also added a bow tied using the blue and white baker’s twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo.  It was just enough of an extra touch.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please return tomorrow and I will have another new project to share.
