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 first card the bottom mat was cut from Pretty Peacock CS.  The flower and leaf pieces were cut from Whisper White and Pretty Peacock CS.  The completed flower was popped up with Dimensionals, the other pieces were attached,  as shown, to the top mat with Tape Runner (glue could be used instead if preferred). The sentiment for this card is from the Amazing You Stamp Set and was stamped with Pretty Peacock Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White CS.  It was cut out with a die from the Ornate Layers Die Set, and also popped up with Dimensionals.  Lastly I added some Glitter Enamel Dots as shown.

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.
