Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Painted Poppies Gate Fold Card with Video Tutorial!

Happy Friday!!  Hope you’ve had a good week – and are looking forward to the weekend! Which I hope will be different in SOME way from the week!  Oh – hey!  You could spend part of your day tomorrow with us on our Ornate Garden FB Live Event!  Check below for the deets and a link to join the event page!!  It’ll be fun – I promise!

If you were able to join me for my YouTube video – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay…here ’tis!

I used the wunnermus goodies from the Peaceful Poppies Suite – the DSP and both the Peaceful Moments bundle (the Poppy Moments Dies are BACK!!) and the Painted Poppies stamp set to make this fun Gate-Fold Card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the CAS Colours & Sketches sketch challenge.

And the pretty color palette is from the Inspire. Create. Challenge.

And it works great with the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge,too!  Right down the left column!

The gate fold is really easy.  I started with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Pool Party and – along the long edge – used my Simply Scored board to score at 2 1/4″ and again at 6 1/2″.

I matted two pieces of Peaceful Poppies DSP on Blackberry Bliss card stock and adhered them to the two gates with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a 1″ x 12″ strip of the Peaceful Poppies DSP around the card, securing it in the middle with Liquid Glue – not TOO snugly, okay?

The Peaceful Moments sentiment is stamped in Poppy Parade on an angled Whisper White rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly die set.  Then I adhered it to the belly band with Liquid Glue.

I cut two solid flowers from a piece of Poppy Parade paper in the Peaceful Poppies DSP.  Using the splotches image in the Painted Poppies set, I added Poppy Parade texture (aka splotches!) to each flower.  Then I adhered a detailed flower die cut in Basic Black to each one (only using Liquid Glue in the middle of the detailed die cuts – letting the edges remain loose).

I cut a few flower centers from Black Foil and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

With the leaf die in the Poppy Moments, I cut three Old Olive leaves.  With the berries die in Frosted Bouquet, I cut three Blackberry Bliss berries.  These are adhered to the sentiment panel with Liquid Glue.

I lightly curled the edges of the larger flower and used Liquid Glue in the middle to adhere it over the leaves.  Then I tucked the smaller flower up under the edge, adhering it with Liquid Glue.  And that was it for the card front and belly band!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Peaceful Moments in Poppy Parade on a Whisper White panel. In the corner, I added the smaller flower image from Painted Poppies in Tuxedo Black, then stamped the large fill image in stamped-off-once Poppy Parade.  I added a few Poppy Parade splotches for some texture.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Painted Poppies flower on the front…

…and a little more Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!!  This Peaceful Moments stamp set is so wonderful – and I am really glad that the bundled Poppy Moments Dies are back in stock and available to you!  Paired with the Painted Poppies images and gorgeous Peaceful Poppies DSP – it’s just a WOW combination!

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

Sometimes there’s doubt about the parentage of animals.

Do they look and act more like their mother?  Or their father?

Well – with Finn, there is little doubt.

He is EXACTLY like his father.

No – not THAT father (although…yea.  They’re pretty similar!!)

The OTHER one.

I am frequently complaining to Wayne that he can – with no aid from tools of any sort – not a compass, nor a laser tape measure, nay – not even survey equipment – park a vehicle (or 3) right. Smack. In the middle of any road – anywhere.

And his son (my sweet Finn-y) – apparently inherited the trait.

Case in point.


He’s got the entire kitchen floor.  Or – gosh – the entire HOUSE!

But no.

With the precision of a NASA engineer…with his trusty slide rule…he places himself in the “aisle”.

Right. Smack. Dead. Center.

So I get to step over him – or go around the island (the looooong way!)

As his father looks on proudly!

That’s-ma BOY!!

  1. Beautiful card! Bummer that I completely forgot to tune in for your live, I’ll go check out the replay! 🙂 As for Finn…he’s just helping you to get your steps in every day. See…he’s all about helping. 😉

    • stampsnlingers

      I always forget what a selfless guy he truly is! And so I look at everytning he does…as wrong. I am a bad mom! 😉 Thanks, Amy! 🙂

  2. Gerri K

    I think Finn just wants to keep track of you… even when he’s sleeping. If you have to step over him, he knows where you are.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep – part of the “herder” instinct, I guess. And – it DOES work! 😉 Thanks, Gerri! 🙂

  3. Susan K

    I love your use of the fun fold for that sketch and I love the card.
    That’s a unique talent Finn has honed. Maybe he knows that’s how he’ll get your attention… he’s so ignored, you know. 🤣

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep – he NEVER gets any love or attention. Poor little guy! 😉 Thanks, Susan! 🙂

  4. Mary, you can imagine my shocked surprise when, after watching your video for this card last night on YouTube, I clicked over from the Tic Tac Toe challenge to find myself looking at the EXACT same card!!! I loved your video and I adore your card! I’m going to grab the Poppy dies before they sell out again! Your card is SO beautifully inspiring – and I’ve never been much for fun folds, but you have inspired me with your lovely decorated band, I MUST try it out!! Thank you for all of your inspiration and a BIG thank you SO much for playing along with my challenge board this week! XX, Shannon

    • stampsnlingers

      Well – thank you so much! I love Tic-Tac-Toe challenges. Appreciate you stopping by with such a lovely comment! 🙂

  5. Mary, Your design is so beautiful. I love all of the detail on the poppy against the beautiful poppy dsp paper. Thank you so much for sharing such a lovely design this week with us over at Tic Tac Toe challenge.

    • stampsnlingers

      Thank you so much, Felicita! Appreciate you stopping by!! 🙂

  6. I would never have thought to use a gate fold with this sketch – how very clever of you! You’ve created a lovely card here! Thanks so much for sharing it with us at CC&S. 🙂

  7. If it weren’t for our dogs….they can make everything ok with just a look, a smile or a wink. They have the ability to look at you with their super sweet big brown eyes and watch you melt into a puddle on the floor. They have a way of smiling at you just when you needed something to cheer you up, and they like to keep a close eye on their human(s). I have 3 dogs, a Husky, a Great Dane mix who just had a leg amputated due to bone cancer, and another cutie that is whatever breed you want her to be…I see a lot of Australian Sheep Dog, but she is definitely a mix. Where ever I go, they go, if I sit down they stay in the same room one on each side and the other at my feet. The cat makes himself at home in my lap. My husband and kids called me the pied piper! The constant companionship on one hand makes me insane, its impossible to turn around and go. You gotta turn around stop, wait then go. But on the other hand, if my shadow were to become a body smaller, and it will sooner than later, I will fall to pieces. They all are part of my tribe and I love em just as much, they demand it. Now about this card….I love it, what a great idea for the gate fold. The Poppy Suite is just gorgeous and is always breath taking to me. Well done with making the sketch your own. Thanks so much for joining us this week at CC&S. Scratch Finn behind the ears for me.

      You’ve got a full house of fur-kids, for sure! Thanks so much, Shannon – appreciate you stopping by! 🙂
