One of the new suites from the Mini Catalogue is the Peaceful Poppies suite. It features stunning watercolour papers, a stamp set, dies and more. I couldn't wait to play with the set when it came in; and when I was commissioned to make a post-it note holder using the new Poppies suite, I knew that would be the first thing I made. I used the same template from the Post-it Note holder I showed in my Stampers Showcase: Let's Celebrate post. The template is from my teammate, Lisa Hardie, and while there are many templates and instructions available; I found this fit the pens I use best.
To create this project, I started with Basic Black card stock, measuring 3 1/2” x 7 5/8”. It was then scored across the 3 1/2” width at 3 1/8”, 3 1/2” and 4”. I then used my Stampin’ Trimmer to cut two slits between the top and bottom score lines, about a 1/2” apart. These slots would become the pop out for the pen. As my shipment of Peaceful Poppies DSP hadn’t yet arrived, I reached for the new 6” x 6” DSP sampler, only available to NEW demonstrators joining during Sale-a-Bration, to pull out the gorgeous paper used as my background. Then on Whisper White card stock, I stamped the poppy images and stems, handcutting (as my dies haven’t arrived) and adhering with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Some black Baker's twine is tied around the DSP and the sentiment is stamped in Mossy Meadow and Poppy Parade. It's then cut out using the Stitched labels dies before being adhered with Dimensionals.
This is just one of many projects I've made using the new suite. Be sure to follow my blog for more inspiration as the days go on; and be sure to register for my Peaceful Poppies class to learn how you can make amazing cards and projects yourself!
