All week long I’m sharing this gorgeous stamp and die set with you. With the New Annual Catalogue being released there are so many lovely products to get your hands one and this is just one of them. I had this picture in my mind of what I wanted to create and it was the Blossoms in Bloom Baby Wipe Technique. Its an old technique but still so fun to create.
I started by creating an ink palette with my reinkers and and cloth. I don’t have baby wipes in my home so used the next best thing.
You can see some more details in the video along with a mistake I made while I was making the card. Good thing card stock comes with two sides.
The Painted Poppies Stamp set is one of my favourites from the January to June Mini Catalogue. And we have recently found out that these stamps are carrying over into the new Annual Catalogue. Yippee!!
I decided in January that I was going to use this suite of products for my April Retreat.
The reason was because Poppies are traditionally used as a flower to remember those we have lost during times of war. My retreat was going to be held over the ANZAC weekend.
In this very simple card I have used a Blackberry Bliss card base. Stamping the three poppy stems on a piece of whisper white card and then, using one of the mottle stamps, I stamped blackberry bliss over the poppy heads to add some colour. After that I attached a strip of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper on the left hand side of the whisper white.
To step up the project I stamped the poppy onto the envelope to keep the theme going and to match the card.
Unfortunately I had to postpone my retreat, but I was able to host a virtual one in its place and send out a retreat in a box for those that wanted to participate. It was a fun weekend that I believe everyone that “attended” enjoyed.
