Hi stampers! Today we have a lot of beautiful projects to share with you using the Poppies Rubber Stamp Set! The flowers and pods in this set can be used in a variety of ways using lots of different colouring mediums.
Teresa Abajo has created two cards using Distress Markers and Dina Wakley Media paints:
1. Apply Barn Door, Aged Mahogany and Forest Moss Distress Markers directly to the stamp, huff some breath onto the stamp to re-moisten the ink and stamp onto watercolour cardstock.
2. Spread some of the colour around with a water brush to fill in the white areas on the image.
3. Stamp the sentiment using the same technique.
4. Scribble a little colour onto an acrylic block, mix with water and flick onto the cardstock around the poppy image.
5. Ink the French Script Background Stamp with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and stamp randomly around the image.
6. Stamp a doily from the Doilies set into the top left hand corner of the piece.
7. Adhere some tea-stained lace over the doily image, add a Tim Holtz Trinket Pin. Mount this panel onto some black cardstock, then onto a white card.
1. Apply a light coat of gesso to white cardstock and dry well. Spray with water, then add a small amount of Dina Wakley acrylic paints (Lime, Lapis, Sky) to create the background. When dry, stamp the poppy buds in green ink.
2. On a separate piece of cardstock, apply gesso then add a small amount of Ruby paint and spread it around with a spatula. Spray with Distress Spray Stain in Aged Mahogany. Stamp the poppies onto the red backround and fussy cut the heads.
3. Sponge Ground Espresso Distress Ink on the edges, gently encouraging them to curl up slightly.
4. Cut a frame from black cardstock and stamp the Woodgrain Texture Stamp using white ink. Mount the frame over the background, and adhere flowers in place with some hanging over the edge of the open frame. Adhere some dark red seed beads with Glossy Accents.
5. Stamp the sentiment from the Everyday Life set in black ink, trim and adhere at the top of the frame. Adhere frame and background to a white card.
Godelieve Tijskens shows how to stamp with Distress Paints:
1. Stamp the Poppies using Distress Paint Forest Moss.
2. Cover the flower with a mask to stamp the buds using the same Distress Paint.
3. Apply a thin layer of Distress Micro Glaze to the petals, and also here and there on the background
4. Colour the background with Distress Stains. The Micro Glaze will resist the ink, so the petals will stay white, and the background gets a distressed look
5. Stamp the words onto a paper strip and compose the card.
Rachel Greig has a simple card idea using one poppy with a simple sentiment:
1. Stamp Poppy onto white gloss card using Jet Black Archival Ink Pad. Colour the petals using Victorian Velvet and Scattered Straw Distress Markers.
2. Stamp sentiment beside the poppy using Jet Black Archival Ink. Lightly scribble underneath the sentiment with Victorian Velvet Distress Marker.
3. Adhere stamped panel onto blue card, then onto a folded pink card.
Here are some great ideas from Robyn Wood, the first one uses alcohol inks. The mottled mix of alcohol inks gives a unique colouring to each flower head.
1. Colour a piece of gloss cardstock approximately 10x15cm with Alcohol Inks and a blending tool. I used Salmon, Watermelon and Peach Bellini but any poppy coloured combo will work.
2. Stamp three times with closed poppy image using Jet Black Archival ink and trim out the flower heads.
3. Trim a piece of coloured cardstock for the cardfront and stamp with just the stem part of the poppy image to create a trio of stems using olive Archival ink. This will allow you to move the flower heads around a little when attaching.
4. Attach flower heads so that they point outwards and cover the bottom of the flower stems with half a paper doily.
5. Layer with contrasting colour and attach to card base. Stamp Birthday Word Block onto white card using Graphite Black Brilliance ink and heat emboss with clear powder. Trim out one of the words, layer with cardstock and attach to doily with foam tape. You can choose to ink only a portion of the Word Block stamp if you wish to be selective, but I like having the extra words all ready to go for other cards.
The pods from the Poppies stamp set are such a simple, graphic image that is perfect for this simple card.
1. Stamp the Pods onto a kraft cardstock base using Jet Black Archival ink.
2. Stamp the word Hugs onto a small manilla tag using the same ink, tear the end of the tag and add a coloured brad. Attach to card front.
Poppies are always such happy flowers and come in a wide variety of colour variations. I used my trusty Google image search to have a look at a bunch of different images for colouring inspiration for this card.
1. Stamp poppy flower three times onto white cardstock using Jet Black Archival ink.
2. Watercolour the images using an Aquash brush and Distress inks in Squeezed Lemonade and Ripe Persimmon. Give the flowers some dimension by varying the depth of colour.
3. Punch the flowers with a circle punch so that parts of each image is cut away differently and mount onto a flag shaped layer using foam tape, staggering slightly for interest.
4. Stamp the layer for the flag shape with the Sending Sunshine greeting using Graphite Black Brilliance ink and heat emboss with clear powder. Attach flag shape and wrap with twine and a button. Attach to white card base measuring 20 x 21cm.
