With Poppies being the focal point for the mini catalogue, I just had to offer a Papercrafting Class using them.
Held at both Spaldwick Village and Huntingdon’s Dunelm Mill, we made two cards and a little 3D item.
Simple Stamping showcases the Painted Poppies Stamp Set beautifully. The large flower image created a background to this first card, with no need for Designer Series Paper. Gray Granite helped to tone down what could have become an otherwise vibrant colour palette and allow the poppies to sing. I’ve used a stitched rectangle to die cut the matting layer, but you need not if you didn’t have the stitched dies.
Stepping things up a little and we used the dies to really highlight the star of the show. These dies are just stunning and those poppies just gorgeous! The back layer of each flower was die cut from the Designer Series Paper that offers a watercolour like wash. We left this card without a sentiment, but I gave the ladies a choice of sentiment to add if they wished.
This box was inspired by a fellow Demonstrator, Katja who lives near Leipzig in Europe. We just had to create a 3D flower to add to our box. The dimension helps bring this flower to life.
An elegant set of things to make, we had a lot of fun creating these … even as card toppers or gift tags.
I hope you’ve liked my share and I hope to welcome you to one of my classes in the future. Two and a half hours, day or evening or an All Day Event, I offer plenty of choices. Just click on my Events tab to see my offering and get yourself booked in.
Hoping you’re enjoying a peaceful day.
