Who doesn't love a poppy flower? We have such a beautiful Poppy themed suite in the Stampin' Up! 2020 January to June mini catalogue. It's called Peaceful Poppies. I just love the colours and the watercolour look of this suite.
Today's card uses the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper, Peaceful Poppies Elements and the Painted Poppies stamp set from the suite.
The flower and the leaves were already pre-embossed onto watercolour paper as part of the Peaceful Poppies elements. All I had to do was grab an Aquapainter and a Rich Razzleberry reinker and add colour. So quick and easy! The black embossed circle was also part of the Peaceful Poppies elements. I really like the contrast of black with the colours in this suite.
The Designer Series Paper adds a colourful poppy background, so I kept my greeting from the Painted Poppies stamp set to a simple white embossed on black.
You can find all the Peaceful Poppies suite products HERE in my online store, or using the links at the end of the post.

I've been playing with Stampin' Up's Pigment Sprinkles over the past few weeks and have come up a video for you as well as four card ideas using the sprinkles.
Pigment sprinkles made their debut in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. These sprinkles are watercolour crystals that explode with colour when mixed with water (you will see that happen in the video). The pieces you create make great backgrounds and elements for your projects.
The pigment sprinkles come in a set of 6 colours, which perfectly coordinate with 7 of our Stampin' Up! colours.
The bottles each have a colour label on the top which makes it quick and easy to find your colours.
The dispensers are really great too! When you unscrew the lid, there is a little flip up lid piece (like salt and pepper shakers) to control how much you use (you only need a little bit as you will see in the video.
Find out LOTS more about the sprinkles in this video I have created for you.
Here are the four cards I created using the pieces I created in the video, and some other pieces I created playing with the sprinkles.
For this second card, I have used a piece I created using Mango Melody and Melon Mambo Pigment Sprinkles. I then embossed the greeting and image from Healing Hugs stamp set onto the piece with White embossing powder. I have also used Stitched Rectangle dies on my card.
In this third card I have used the Bermuda Bay sprinkles on my background. These sprinkles are also an excellent match for Pretty Peacock (which is the colour of my base card and die cut from Merry Christmas dies). The 'birthday' part of my greeting is from the Well Said stamp set.
For my final card, I have die cut letters from a piece I had created using the Pigment Sprinkles. I used the Hand Lettered Prose dies to cut the letters, and Well Said stamp set for the other part of the greeting. The background on this card was made using a watercolour wash and some ink splatters in Mango Melody.
I hope you have enjoyed my video and these Stampin' Up! pigment sprinkles cards.

They are perfect for a range of techniques, and I have put together a video showing you how they stamp on a variety of cardstock types, as well as some techniques you can use with them on your Stampin' Up! projects.
Here's a closer look at the cards I have shown in the video (the Seaside Spray reindeer card was featured yesterday in my Heart of Christmas week 4 post, and that includes step by step instructions to make that card).
In the watercolouring section of the video, I featured this Good Morning Magnolia card.
Here's a list of the Stampin' Up! products I have used to make this card (I stamped the image in Dove Grey Stazon. Unfortunately Stampin' Up! don't carry that yet, but I love it for watercolouring when I want a lighter edge effect).
Stamps: Good Morning Magnolia
Cardstock: Shimmery White and Rococo Rose
Ink: Petal Pink & Rococo Rose (petals), Smoky Slate (around the image), Mossy Meadow (leaves) and Celestial Copper (centre and highlights)
Embellishments: Pearl Basic Jewels, Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon, Linen Thread
The other card I featured was this one, showcasing the stamping and misting using Celestial Copper. The shimmery mist of Celestial Copper on the Early Espresso and Very Vanilla cardstock is much easier to see in the video close ups.
Here's a list of the Stampin' Up! products I have used on this card (you can see the links for these products at the end of the post):
Stamps: Very Versailles and Beauty and Joy (Holiday Catalogue), Butterfly Wishes (greeting; from Annual Catalogue)
Ink: Early Espresso, Garden Green and Celestial Copper
Welcome back to the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team Heart of Christmas Blog Hop for week 4. Our aim is to spread the joy of Christmas creating as far and wide as we can.
This week I am all about silver and shimmer!
This was actually a super fast card to make! Here's what I did:
Prepared a top folding standard C6 size (1/2 A4 cut vertically and folded) using Seaside Spray cardstock.
Cut a second layer of Seaside spray cardstock 9.8cm x 14cm (o4 3 & 13/16 x 6.5 inches)
Emboss this layer using the Woodland embossing folder.
Using a sponge dauber and your Silvery Shimmer Delicata ink pad, sponge silver metallic ink over the embossed parts of the tree and branches. Put aside to dry for 10-15 minutes. (Tip: The manufacturer recommends not speeding up the drying time with heat, as it diminishes the lustre of the stamped image). Once dry, adhere to the card base using Multipurpose Glue or Snail.
Die cut a nested label using whisper white cardstock. I have used the second largest one.
Stamp a greeting bottom left side of the label, using the Silvery Shimmer Delicata ink. Set aside to dry for 10 minutes.
Die cut the deer shape from Detailed Deer (in the Annual Catalogue). Adhere with Dimensionals onto the nested label (you can also add a glue dot to the antlers). Add three small rhinestones around the deer.
Adhere this whole nested piece to the centre of the card using Dimensionals.
I'm obsessed with the Delicata inks right now. Hands down the BEST metallic inks I have ever used. Air dries in 10-15 minutes, no smudging and has great lustre. It would be pretty quick and easy to whip up a batch of these Christmas cards too.
Now let's check in with the Art With Heart girls and see what they have been creating this week.
