Poppy Cards - Stamping and Masking to create different card designs


Hey Everyone!

Today it is all about Poppy Cards created with one of Fleurette Bloom's latest Stamp sets Poppies.
I've been wanting to try masking to create my own unique designs and finally got the chance! This is a great way to make the most of a stamp especially if you are like me and just getting into stamping :) The mask was done by stamping my images on some Inkadinkado Stamping Mask Paper and then using my Silhouette PixScan mat, to cut the images out. Click HERE for previous tutorial on using the PixScan. 

For this card I also used her Happy Days Stamp Set. The images were stamped onto Nee nah Solar White 80lbs paper using Memento tuxedo black ink.  The Happy Birthday was stamped using Versafine Onyx black and then embossed and set with Wow! Regular Clear Gloss embossing powder. I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to colour the images in (CR4, CR6, CT2, CT4, CG1,CG2). Then I used the Die-namics Wonky stitched Rectangle to frame it out. The card base is a landscape, 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" mounted onto a black piece of cardstock cut to the same size. Finished by adding some sparkle by using some Clear Wink of Stella, and some sequins.

Isn't she pretty!? Never knew I could feel this way about a card, lol!


To the inside I added the smaller poppy to the bottom corner.


For those of you that like to watch You Tube videos, here is a video I put together of during the making of this card. If you haven't yet make sure you subscribe to my channel :)




And here is another card I made using similar techniques.


For this one I used the Rectangle Stitch Die from Simon Says, Spectrum Noir Markers (CR4, CR5, CG1, CG2, BT1), White Embossing powder, and some Pretty Pink Posh clear droplets.


For this next card I also used little butterfly from Fleurette Bloom's Thank You Stamp Set.


I also used the Spectrum Noir Markers CG1, CG2, OR1, OR2, OR3, CT4, and BT1. The Stitched Circle Die from Simon Says Stamp and a Script Embossing folder from We R Memory Keepers. This Card base is a 5 1/2" Square.


Hope you have enjoyed my Poppy Cards and maybe even got a little inspired to create your own designs using the masking technique! If you do don't forget to share your creations on Fleurette Bloom's FB Page. We would love to see them :)
