Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring Painted Poppies and Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Sets

Hello my crafty friends. I love the summer months, but things really get busy during this time. I know it does for you too. Today I thought I would be quick and show off this card I made during the June 19 workshop.

The card base is a side fold, portrait A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Basic White cardstock. The next layer is Fresh Freesia cardstock, cut 4" x 5 1/4". The embellishment build is a 3" x 3" piece of the In Color 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper. Important note: This 3" square cut makes the most use of one sheet of the In Color DSP. The field of poppies image is stamped on a 2 1/2" square piece of Basic White cardstock to fit within the DSP square. I used Stampin' Blends (Highland Heather and Calyspo Coral) to color the poppies.

If you watched my Facebook workshop video, I share that I created the card "on the fly" although I did base the design on my Blog Hop shaker card from June 16. Once I placed the field of poppies on the card base, the embellishment build did not stand out until I added a 3/16" strip of Rich Razzleberry cardstock.

The butterfly is one of the smaller butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance SS.  The sentiment is from Hey Birthday Chick SS (I love this font!). And don't forget a couple of adhesive-backed sequins for some bling!.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!  I hope my project has inspired your creativity. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

I will NOT be able to hold our workshop on the Third Saturday, July 17, as usual. If you follow me on Facebook, I will let everyone know as soon as I can figure it out. All July cards will feature the Many Messages Bundle and I plan to use the Many Messages SS  • Item# 154510 + Messages Dies • Item# 154422 in my workshop. NOTE: The Bundle Price • Item# 156272 | $50.25 will retire after today so if you would like to take advantage of the 10% savings, place your order today. The 2021-22 catalog introduces a new stamp set, Many Happenings • Item# 155001, that coordinates with the die. I haven't received mine yet, but it is on its way!!

Keep motivated and crafting this month - I am so looking forward to seeing your creations. Take a picture of the cards you make and share with us all in the comments during my Facebook Live. For everyone that places an order of $25 or more using the monthly host code (see the sidebar), I will send you the next month's (August) workshop card kits in advance of the workshop.

Today is the last day to order from the January-June 2021 catalog -- The Mini Catalog retires on June 30. It’s always bittersweet to see a classic Stampin’ Up! catalog take a trip to retirement. But, we’re looking forward to all the new products on their way—and we hope you are, too! Stock up on your favorites before they are gone for good! Save up to 50% on essential craft supplies while supplies last. If you need a list of the retiring product, just let me know.

(May 4, 2021 - May 2, 2022)
If you do not already have a copy of the 2021-22 Annual Catalog, and do not already have a  demonstrator, it would be my pleasure to be your enabler (er, I mean demonstrator) and send you a copy of your very own! (Click the link on the sidebar for a virtual copy.)

As always, if you have any questions, or need any assistance, contact me in your favorite method of communication. :)
