A Blooming Poppy and Seeds of Happiness



Hi there - looking for a way to use the other section of the new Blooming Poppy Die?  We used the left side in my previous post - now we get to play with a beautiful butterfly and some glitter.  Jean Okimoto here today with a flowery summer design for you.

  • NEW Pinpoint Rectangle Layers Die Set 30065
  • Seeds of Happiness Stamp B2054
  • Cascadia Butterfly Trio 99095

  • Memento Dye Ink Refills - Angel Pink, Dandelion
  • Brilliance Inkpads - Pearlescent Lime, Orange, Coral and Thyme - and Sunflower Yellow and Rocket Red Gold
  • Daubers

Watercolor the background with diluted Angel Pink and Dandelion inks.  Daub the diecut with Brilliance inks.  Cut the large Cascadia Butterfly from Scor-Tape.  Attach it behind the Blooming Poppy butterfly and brush glitter onto the adhesive.  

Here's a quick tip for you.  The Pinpoint Rectangle Layers add a perfect frame to any design.  Use it to cut custom-sized greeting shapes too.    Stamp the greeting and cut it with the one of the smaller dies - then trim off any excess using just one edge of a larger die.  


Please visit our Ideas Gallery for detailed directions and supply lists for today's project - and other designs from our new release.

 Thanks for visiting - see you again this evening!




Jean, it's a beautiful card! So light and bright at the same time! Love your use of pinpoint panels - they look great with that textured white cardstock! Perfect!

Very pretty!

Love this card...the soft colors are really pretty with these dies.

Thank you Olga...and welcome to the Memory Box/Poppystamps 'family!'

Thank You Rachel B. - it's a great die for summer cards!

Thank You Jan D. - I think any color would be pretty with these wonderful dies!

Super cette carte! Bises

I love how you show us how to use up leftovers. It's a great design.

Thanks Alison - Blooming Poppy is like a two-for-one die!

Very cute and cheerful card, Jean. Love that sentiment stamp!

I so often tend to put things in the middle. I really like the layout here, and the colors.

Thanks Debbie - and it even has a little flower stamp on the side!

Thanks Susie! Try a few offset designs - then add a pop of color to balance the composition. I think you'll like it!
