Monthly Team Blog Hop – Peaceful Poppies Suite from Stampin’ Up!

Blog Hop Banner

Hello there!!! Today I am again participating in a blog hop to bring you lots of ideas from around the world!! Believe me you will get tons and tons of inspiration when you hop with us and visit all blogs from my fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators!

I have no doubts that you will find lots and lots of inspiration and after visiting all the blogs you will want to go to your craft room and case some of the ideas from these blogs!

Now, as you can imagine, I have been saying a lot on my videos how much I love the Peaceful Poppies Suite from Stampin’ Up! and I have not been able to stop creating cards with this suite, so today, I am going to share another project using the Peaceful Poppies Suite. 

Peaceful Poppies Suite from Stampin’ Up!

If you are like me, I know that you will love all the elements from this suite! I am particularly drawn to the designer series paper in this collection, because the colors are just so bright that makes me happy!!! 

All the designs from the Peaceful Poppies designer series paper are just perfect for stand alone cards, meaning you don’t need much to make beautiful cards!  You can see it today with my easy to follow design. 

You can mix and match this same layout with all the different designs in this paper pack, in fact that would be a great challenge to see how many cards we can make using this same layout!! Sketch from Allie # 4

If you are up to it, let’s play and share some of your creations on the comments!! I know you will love all the cards you make with sketch/layout! 

Information about this card

Anyway, back to the card project I am sharing today. I used both of the stamp sets included in the Peaceful Poppies suite, which are the Painted Poppies and the Peaceful Moments. 

I love that one of the sets is sentiments only and the other is poppies images! this really helps so much with the designing of the card, as everything coordinates nicely! 

As far as colors being used, I used the Blackberry Bliss for the card base, and Old Olive for the mat, as both colors were included in the DSP color palette. I don’t you if you know that but that is my biggest secret when it comes to color coordination.. I always look in the back of the paper pack to get colors that can go together. After all if these are great on the design of the sheet, it will as well on a card!

Now as far as the sentiment, I die cut it with the brand new Stitched So Sweetly dies! which are fantastic!! seriously! they have some many images for labels plus the cute set of scallop rectangles that are so in trend! 

For the stamping, I stamped off the poppy image with Gray Granite in a scratch paper and then stamped (without re-inking) onto the whisper white label, and then I stamped the sentiment with Rich Razzleberry.

And to embellish this card I added a little zigzag with the Poppy Parade Textured Weave Ribbon, it adds somethings and pulls all colors together, don’t you think? 

Step-by-Step video tutorial

As usual here is a video tutorial in case you want to see step-by-step instructions, I go over measurements for all the pieces of the card.

How to make a quick and easy card for the men in your life

Hello Friends!!, Here is another card featuring the Truly tailored suite!!,  as I have mentioned in past blog posts, this suite is perfect to create masculine cards perfect for the men in your life!!! 


The stamp set has a coordinating punch, and when you get them as a bundle you save 10% on both items, please note that the punch is not retiring but the stamp set is retiring at the end of May, so don’t let it go, if this is on your wish list!


This suite has the Truly Gentleman designer series paper, and it truly coordinates perfectly with this suite!, I love the colors on this paper pack and it is just so easy to design masculine cards with this pack!! the colors are just great!! there is also a corduroy ribbon in night of navy that coordinates as well perfectly with the whole suite!

This time I used as well the foxy friends and the fox builder punch for this card, I got to say this is not my design, I used Pinterest as my inspiration and I found a card made by Mary Bush, and while this card is not exactly the same as her design, her card was my inspiration for this card.

Facebook live 4-27-18 Magical day

Hello Friends!! Here are the cards we made on the facebook live event from 4/27. For this week I decided to use the same stamp set but change the background, to show you different ways to embellish the backgrounds and have different looks on your cards..

By the way the stamp set and coordinating thinlits are retiring at the end of May, so if you like this set, make sure you grab it before its gone!!


The first card is using watercolor paper!! and this one is colored with the ink pads and the aqua painters!! it is a little bit time consuming but if you use the heat tool you can accelerate the process a bit..

This cute unicorn comes from the magical day stamp set!! is that not gorgeous!!! It is perfect for little girls if you ask me!!


All of the unicorns were colored the same, I used memento ink, and then colored them with the stampin blends, I used the lighter shades for the hair, and then used the smoky slate for the shadows on the body and the pink pirouette for the cheeks, this always add a little personality to the critters, then of course I used the wink of stella over the hair!! I just love the shimmery look it leaves on the hair!! 


The clouds from all cards are from the Up & Away thinlits!! these coordinated perfectly!! love the look, specially cause all clouds were cut from the glimmer paper from myths and magic!! this is really stunning in person!

how to make a quick and easy masculine card

Hello Friends!!, Today I am sharing another card featuring the truly tailored stamp set!! as you have read in my last posts this set is truly perfect to make masculine cards!!, and with Fathers day around the corner, this set surely will need to be on your collection!

This stamp set comes with a coordinating punch on a bundle and when you get them as a bundle you actually save 10% on both items, so it is a good deal to get them together, though you can also purchase them by themselves.. The punch will still be available in the new catalog, however the stamp set is retiring at the end of May!!, so if this is on your wish list, don’t let it go, as once they are gone, they are gone for good!

My card today is as well simple, quick and easy!! I used the Eastern Palace designer series paper, instead of the truly gentleman designer series paper, and I love how it looks.. 

I stamped in dapper denim the sentiment on the coordinating cardstock and punch it out, and then I stamped the same image as well with Cajun craze in very vanilla, so I could fussy cut the little fox, and using a mini dimensional I glued it on top of the dapper denim.. It is the little details that make a card pop up, don’t you agree?
truly tailored, masculine cards, birthday cards

The card base is tranquil tide (5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″) and the top layer is very vanilla (4″x 5 1/4″), then I added two strips of the designer series paper, honestly the length doesn’t matter too much as long as one is longer than the other, both are 1″ wide, I stamped the sentiment “today is your day, celebrate in style” in tranquil tide on the very vanilla and then I added the punched out sentiment with dimensionals

masculine cards, truly tailored, birthday cards

Here is the supply list for all the items I use to make this card, you can click at any of the images to go to my online store, where you can purchase any of these items!! thanks a lot!! I truly appreciate your support, also don’t forget….
