Stampin’ Up! Poppy Moments to Last a Lifetime for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop


Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

I made a card for you today that would be perfect for a wedding – using the Last a Lifetime stamp set and some wonderful Poppy Moments flowers.  Plus – a little Breathtaking Bouquet (which is on the Retiring List!).  Take a look-see:

And – here’s our sketch!

And I was inspired by the gorgeous bouquet, white accents and romantic feel in The Card Concept photo inspiration. I’d say my card is somewhere between Clean and Layered and Shabby Chic and Vintage!

I started by using my Stamparatus to stamp the big, beautiful floral image from the Breathtaking Bouquet background set in Pool Party on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I matted it on a piece of Pool Party with Liquid Glue for the card front.

Next, I used a die in the new Ornate Layers Die set to cut a Pool Party frame, embossed it in the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Last a Lifetime sentiment in Pool Party on a piece of Whisper White and cut it out with the long die in the Ornate Layers set.

I adhered the sentiment to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out my Poppy Moments die set and used the leaves dies to cut two leaves in Vellum and two in Pool Party.  I also cut a couple of Whisper White berries with my go-to berries die in the Frosted Bouquet set.  Y’all – this die set is SO cool – and it’s GOING AWAY!!  GET IT NOW!! 🙁

I cut two solid flowers in Whisper White, two detailed flowers and several Pool Party centers. Using the splotch image in Painted Poppies, I stamped the flowers in Pool Party, then adhered the detailed flowers to the solid flowers using Liquid Glue (just in the middle).   I added the Pool Party centers with more Liquid Glue.

The final piece to prepare was a large-ish bow tied from Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding.

I dry fit everything and took my pictures…

…then got busy adhering everything with Liquid Glue.  Finally, I popped the flowers back in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I finished off the card front with a few Pool Party gems from the Holiday Rhinestone pack – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Last a Lifetime sentiment in Pool Party to a Whisper White panel.  Around the top and bottom edges, I added the floral image from Last a Lifetime, also in Pool Party.  A single Holiday Rhinestone finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pool Party mat and into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Last a Lifetime floral image in Pool Party on the front…

…and I added some script-covered Pool Party Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Poppies in white and blue!  Love them – and was SO glad to see that the Poppy Moments dies will be carrying over!  And – so is the Last a Lifetime set!  Whoo-hoo!!

I hope you like!

    Hi Mary,
    well, I have to say I think that is the most beautiful wedding card I’ve ever seen!! And I don’t have anything you used except the sentiment!! Now my brain is scrambling to see how I can improvise, but it won’t be the same, and I won’t be happy.
    Wanted to say I watched your YouTube live too……just adore that elephant…..and I don’t have the bee set either….sigh.
    I DO have a lot of sets that ARE carrying over tho… was very happy about that!! Lots of things to look forward to. I LOVE THE NEW IN-COLORS.

    • stampsnlingers

      I do, too – they’re really pretty!! 😉 Now – the easiest thing (on your brain!) is to just…get the sets you don’t have. Easy peasy! Thanks so much, Faith! 🙂

  12. Beautiful card, Mary and I am sure any couple would love to receive it! I enjoyed your post and detail explanation o putting it together. Thank you for joining us at The Card Concept!!!
