MFTeaser - Birthday Poppies

Welcome to day one of seven fabulous days of MFT teasers!

Today the design team is featuring projects created with the gorgeous new Pretty Poppies stamp set, part of the Lisa Johnson Designs line. There's also a coordinating Poppies and Leaves Die-namics, and a brand new shade of red, Electric Red, which is being added to the MFT line-up with cardtock, ink, ribbon and buttons, all of which I used on my card today.


I started with a base of Whip Cream then added a layer of Natural cardstock and a layer of Hot Fudge. I used my Circle 1 STAX Die-namics to cut out the Natural circle then set to work creating the floral scene. I stamped the poppies with the new Electric Red Premium Dye Ink, then masked them with a post-it note so I could stamp the stems and leaves with the new Gumdrop Green Premium Dye Ink. The panel needed some dimension though so I used the Poppies and Leaves Die-namics to cut out one of the poppy blooms then stamped it with Electric Red Premium Dye Ink, coloured the center with copic markers, and adhered it with foam tape. I dusted off my old SU colour spritzer tool and added some spritzes of brown marker for a little more detail.

Across the bottom of the card I placed a layer of Electric Red cardstock then a strip of Whip Cream cardstock. I stamped the sentiment with Kraft Premium Dye Ink and added a strip of Electric Red grosgrain ribbon. I used the Poppies and Leaves Die-namics again to cut out two leaves and added an Electric Red button tied with Hemp Cord.

On the inside I stamped another gorgeous poppy and added another sentiment from Pretty Poppies. Can I just say how much I'm loving this colour combo...Hot Fudge, Electric Red, Natural and Whip Cream...who knew!

What a pretty card! The masking you did make the arrangement look so natural. Love it! I'm wondering how you added the black texture to the middle of the center flower??
