Despite the huge assortment of stamps, tools, and techniques in my stamping toolbox, sometimes I love to keep my projects super simple. Today’s card set is definitely simple, but it doesn’t lack in beauty. These gorgeous cards are made with the Stampin Up Painted Poppies stamp set. Let’s talk about them!
Stampin Up Painted Poppies Stamp Set
The Painted Poppies set includes quite a collection of beautiful flowers in various sizes, shapes, and arrangements. You can create lovely projects in a variety of colors with this set, but today we will be sticking to the basics by just using black and white.
Stampin Up started the simple stamping movement to help provide simple ideas to beginners and anyone who likes to make quick, simple cards. I feel like it was also started to reign in all of us crazy demonstrators who love to make complicated, over the top projects. I’m laughing as I write this, because those of us who discover we love to stamp often get more and more involved and end up making crazy difficult and time-consuming projects…and we love every minute of it! But sometimes simple is best! Personally, I have been re-inspired to make and share simple projects at least once per week. I want to help new stampers get started with this type of project as well as help experienced stampers make a lot of cards quickly. It’s also a nice reminder to appreciate simple beauty.
To make these cards you will need white cardstock, memento black ink, the Stampin Up Painted Poppies stamp set, and adhesive. If you want the pretty shimmer accents on the flowers, you will also need white shimmer paint and a water painter.
Join in and watch along as I share exactly how to make these cards.
Adding A Special Touch With Shimmer Paint
As mentioned in the video, I use shimmer paint and a water painter to add a special touch to some of the flowers. All I did was pick up a small amount of shimmer paint with my water painter, then I painted it onto the desired areas with a carefree watercolor-like stroke.
