It’s late on Monday night and the PPC371 closes tomorrow. Therefore, this post will be short and sweet.

This week’s sketch at Paper Craft Crew Challenge 371 called for splatters on the background.  While it really could have been a multitude of different combinations, I chose to stick with the Peaceful Poppies DSP and the Painted Poppies stamp set to create my card.

Here’s my card:

Peaceful Poppies

I am absolutely in love with this DSP and have been creating cards with it exclusively since the middle of last week.  Not even the cuteness of the ladybugs or the Welcome Easter stamp set has deterred me.  

Once I chose the DSP pattern I wanted this time, the rest fell into place.  First, I used the large splatter stamp from Painted Poppies for the Poppy Parade and Old Olive splatter stamps. In order to get the various depths of color that I wanted,  I stamped each color three times without re-inking.

While I didn’t plan to do the sentiment next, it needed to be done.  As you know, I am all about cropping/punching out the layers to conserve paper.  This time was no different.  Because of the way I stamped the splatters, I could crop out the sentiment block from the middle of the card stock covered by the center circle. 

I cropped the DSP circle using the Stitched Shapes die set. The Old Olive scalloped circle came from the Layering Circles die set. I also used the Basic Black Stampin’ Marker to outline the scallops and the stitches in the ditch.

Once I cut out the sentiment mat and cropped the scalloped trim from the Painted Labels die set, it was time to put the card together.

Once I stamped the front of the envelope with a poppy and added the DSP to the flap, this set was done.

As always,
