These 3 cards feature the Poppy Moments Die Set and coordinating Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!.

All of 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.
Once I had my flowers made I picked out a piece of DSP to use for a top mat of each card. For these 3 cards I cut all my top mats from the Peaceful Poppies DSP pack.
For this next card the bottom mat was cut from Rich Razzleberry CS. I used Whisper White and Rich Razzleberry CS to cut the flower pieces, stamped them with Rich Razzleberry Ink using a texture stamp from the Touches of Texture Stamp Set (the dots) and then assembled the pieces. The leaves were cut from Old Olive CS. I sponged some Mossy Meadow ink on the leaves to add some contrast. The sentiment is from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set and was stamped on a scrap of Whisper White CS using Old Olive Ink. The flower on the right side and the sentiment were popped up Dimensionals, the other attached directly to the DSP layer.
I cut the bottom mat for this card from Calypso Coral CS. I also used Calypso Coral CS for the base, outline piece and flower buds. I used Petal Pink CS that I stamped with Calypso Coral Ink using a texture stamp from the Touches of Texture Stamp Set (the dots) for the petal pieces. I used Mossy Meadow and Old Olive CS to cut the layered leaf pieces. I added a small Pearl to the center of the flower and popped it up with Dimensionals. The leaves were attached directly to the DSP top mat.
