Welcome to week forty of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop.
This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months and this week we are featuring Poppy Parade from the Brights family.
The Fancy Flora Suite includes the Two-Tone Flora Stamp Set and the Two-Tone Flora Dies. I’ve used the Two-Tone Flora Stamp Set, which is a two step stamp set, to stamp Poppy Parade at full strength stamping for the detailed sections of the flower and and stamped off once for the solid flower image.
Because these are photopolymer stamps they are easy to line up. I always stamp the solid flower first and then stamp the detailed image. Then I die cut the flowers using the Two-Tone Flora Dies.
The white die cut pieces are cut from the large background die in the Two-Tone Flora Dies die set which is completely filled with pretty flowers. I’ve used my paper snips to cut out flowers and sprigs and create a floral arrangement with the Poppy Parade stamped and die cut flowers.
Once I’d created a floral arrangement, I adhered it to a sheet Fancy Flora DSP. This pattern in the Fancy Flora DSP has a gorgeous textured painted effect that really softens Calypso Coral – I like this softer shade of Calypso Coral and how beautifully it pairs with Poppy Parade.
I couldn’t resist using the smallest “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set, white heat embossed onto Poppy Parade cardstock. It’s such a feminine script.
The final touch for the front of my birthday card? A scattering of clear Adhesive-backed Milky Dots are the perfect embellishment.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Di Furniss – I can’t wait to see what Di has made this week!
