Painted Poppies Layering Flowers

Here's how I made it:

Starting with a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock, I wiped over with the Embossing Buddy to remove any static and stamped the large Poppy using VersaMark Ink.

I then stamped the smaller Poppy 3 times in VersaMark Ink.

Then Stamping the large leaf 3 times and the small leaf 4 times, again with VersaMark.

Taking the White Stampin' Emboss Powder i Sprinkled this over the stamped images and tapped off the excess.

I then set the powder with the Heat Tool.

I then used a Sponge Dauber to gently apply Gorgeous Grape to the large flower and 1 small flower. I built up the colour using light circular motions. For the centre of the flowers I added a it more colour.

I then used Melon Mambo on 1 of the small flowers in the same way as before.

For the final small flower, I did the same technique, but instead used Bermuda Bay.

For the Leaves I used Granny Apple Green. Again using a light circular motion to build up colour. I made each leaf slightly lighter than the last, by not reining the dauber. To add some dimension I streaked some extra colour slightly through the lighter leaves.

I then Die Cut the Flowers and smaller leaves, using the coordinating Dies from the Bundles. For the larger leaves, I fussy cut them using my Paper Snips.

I aligned a piece of Whisper White Cardstock (10cm x 14.35cm) in the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder and ran it through the Die Cutting Machine.

I then adhered this to the front of a card base (Whisper White Cardstock 14.85cm x 21cm, scored at 10.5cm)

Next, I arranged the flowers and leaves on the front of the card to find the best position.

Using Mini Glue Dots I adhered the flowers and leaves together. I then used Dimensionals to adhere the arrangement to the front of the card.

I then took a piece of scrap Basic Black Cardstock and wiped over with the Embossing Buddy.

I then stamped a sentiment from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set in VeraMark.

I then sprinkled this with White Stampin' Emboss Powder and tapped off excess.

I then set the powder with the Heat Tool.

I then used the Paper Trimmer to cut down the card around the sentiment. I used the ridges on the finger guard as a guide to line the edge of the sentiment against, to create and even border.

Finally, I applied Mini Glue Dots to the back of the sentiment and aligned and adhered to the front of the card. I chose to tuck it slightly under the leaves.
