Poppy Moments Dies for a Craft Retreat Project

I'm working on the projects we'll be doing at my 1 Day Craft Crop to Aid Refugees on March 14th. In the Swag Bag for each attendee there will be some of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper and I wanted another project that would take advantage of that because it is such gorgeous paper! I really like the design that has half of it as a field of poppies complete with stems and grass and sky in a stylized form. I thought it would make a great backdrop for a die cut poppy or two using the Poppy Moments layering dies. And the back of one of the other designs has a variegated Poppy Parade wash that creates a great backing for one of the poppies shown here. Take a closer look:

  • A piece of that particular design of the Peaceful Poppies DSP, 5 1/4" x 4" is mounted on the Blackberry Bliss card base.
  • A backing for the large poppy is die cut from the back of the small red poppy design from the same set of DSP. The outline die cut is made from Poppy Parade cardstock and the center is die cut from Basic Black cardstock.
  • The purple poppy backing is just Rich Razzleberry cardstock while the outline is die cut from Blackberry Bliss cardstock and the center is again, Basic Black.
  • The leaves are die cut from Old Olive cardstock and Mossy Meadow, then added to the DSP where they fit well. The poppies are added using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • The sentiment is from the new Sale-A-Bration set Tags in Bloom. While it's supposed to coordinate with the Label Me Fancy Punch from the Jan/Jun Mini, I don't have that punch yet, so I paired it instead with the Timeless Label Punch and it works quite well. 
  • I added some sprinkly dots to the tag in Poppy Parade and Blackberry Bliss ink so it wouldn't be so stark white and echoing the dots in the DSP, using the dots from the SAB stamp set Happy Birthday to You.
