These 2 cards feature the Poppy Moments Die Set from Stampin' Up!.

The following cards were made similarly.   I began by making the flowers.  I cut a solid flower piece out of cardstock.  Then I cut two segmented flower pieces, one from the same color cardstock and one from a coordinating color, giving me what I will call an outline piece and then the individual petal pieces.  

I glued the outline piece to the solid flower piece of the same cardstock color and then glued all of the petals in place.  I cut additional solid flowers and segmented flowers and combined the pieces as above.  I cut coordinating flower center pieces and attached them as shown. 

For this first card the bottom green mat at was cut from a piece of Lily Impressions DSP, the top mat was cut from Whisper White CS.  The flowers were from Blackberry Bliss and Whisper White DSP.  Using the leaf dies from the featured set I cut "leaves" from the top mat as shown, leaving the green colored DSP showing thru. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set and was stamped with Blackberry Bliss Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White CS and cut with one of the Stitched Label Dies. The top left flower and the sentiment were popped up with Dimensionals.  Lastly, I added a couple of coordinating Enamel Shapes to the card front.  

The next card was made similar to the card above using the following papers and inks.  The bottom mat was cut from Coastal Cabana CS.  The top mat was cut from Whisper White CS that was sponged with Coastal Cabana Ink.  The flowers were cut from Flirty Flamingo CS and Whisper White CS that was sponged with Flirty Flamingo Ink and then stamped with one of the dies from the Touches of Texture Stamp Set (the dots) using the same ink. I cut the leaf shapes out of the top mat as I did on the first card above. The sentiment is from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set and was  stamped with Flirty Flamingo Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White CS and cut out with one of the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies.  The sentiment and the left flower were popped up with Dimensionals.
