PPA137 Pleasant Poppies Thank You Card

Stampin up pretty order online catalog demonstrator blog big shot machine circle punchThis simple card is the platform for another creative way to display Perfect Poppies background stamp (image below), new in the Stampin’ Up! 2012-2013 Annual Catalog.   It’s available in both wood and clear-mount.  I used it previously on this card and feel like I have only begun to explore the possibilities.


The latest Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge (PPA137) was the foundation for today’s card.  The sketch came from the imagination of Margaret Moody, a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals.  Please be sure to check out the rest of the PPA Design Team’s card ideas for inspiration and play along.


  • The Naturals Designer Buttons add a simple, organic touch.  Use Stampin’ Up! Glue Dots to keep them in place.

  • Lacy & Lovely stamp set offeres three sophisticated sentiments, including this “Thank You.”
  • The 3 1/2″ Circle Originals Die was used (along with my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine) to produce the largest circle.  I cut first and then stamped it with the Perfect Poppies image.

  • Very Vanilla 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon completes the look (and stays true to the sketch) without overpowering the poppies.
