These cards feature the Painted Poppies Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!.

The bottom mat on this car was cut from Old Olive CS, the top mat was cut from Whisper White CS. I stamped the stemmed poppy flowers from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, colored the flowers and bud with Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends, the stems and leaves with Old Olive Stampin' Blends, and then masked the flowers with pieces I stamped and cut out of Post-It Tape. Next I sponged the card front using Blender Brushes. I used Balmy Blue Ink on the top portion of the card, Poppy Parade Ink on the middle portion, and Old Olive Ink on the bottom portion. Then I used the same colors inks and "dotted" the card front using the two splotch stamps that came in the featured stamp set. The butterfly is from the Beauty Abounds Stamp Set and was stamped with the Memento Ink. The sentiment is from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set and was stamped on a scrap piece of Whisper White CS using the Old Olive Ink. It was die cut using one of the Merry Christmas Thinlets Dies and popped up with Dimensionals. This card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest by Karen Fuller.
The bottom mat for this next card was cut from Cajun Craze CS, the top mat was cut from Whisper White CS. I stamped the stemmed poppy flower and the clustered poppy flowers using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, colored the flowers as shown using the Dark Calypso Coral Stampin' Blend, the stem and leaf with the Dark Call Me Clover Stampin' Blend. Then I used my Blender Brushes to color the background using Blueberry Bushel Ink on the top section, Calypso Coral Ink on the center section, and Call Me Clover Ink on the bottom section. I spattered some ink across the card using my Aqua Painters to create the "drops". The sentiment is from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set and was stamped with Cajun Craze Ink. The butterfly is from the Papillion Potpourri Stamp Set and was stamped on a scrap of Whisper White CS with Cajun Craze Ink, cut out the Bitty Butterfly Punch and glued to the card with Tombow Glue. This card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest by Melissa Kerman.
