Poppy Sympathy Card--#tgifc245

This week's TGIF Challenges color challenge is Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry and Very Vanilla.  It took a little thought for me to decide how to use these colors. It is kind of an elegant and subtle color combination to me, so I decided to create a sympathy card to have on hand.

The Peaceful Poppies Suite of stamps and dies was perfect for this card.  I chose to layer a Blackberry Bliss/Rich Razzleberry patterned paper from the Peaceful Poppies designer series paper pack (#151324) over the front of my Very Vanilla card base.  The polka dots on the paper were Whisper White, so I colored them in with the Rich Razzleberry Light Stampin' Blends (#144583).  

I stamped the sympathy greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (#151595) in Blackberry Bliss on my very vanilla card stock layer.  I also stamped the large splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set (#151599) on the card stock layer.  I stamped it randomly in the left-hand corner using Rich Razzleberry ink, stamping it off twice before stamping on the card stock.

On a scrap Very Vanilla card stock, the poppy outline images from Painted Poppies were stamped in Blackberry Bliss, then the "filler" image was stamped over them using Rich Razzleberry ink, stamped off once for the smaller poppies.  These were die cut using the Painted Labels dies (#151605; bundled with Painted Poppies stamp set, #153827).  The poppies  were arranged on the card front with three Old Olive leaf images die cut with the Poppy Moments dies (#151594; bundled with the Peaceful Moments stamp set, #153824).

The Very Vanilla stamped layer was layered over a piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock and then adhered to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.

So happy you stopped by today!  Happy New Year!
