Welcome to the What's New at SU! blog hop. I am happy that you are joining us. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrator from around the world.. Today we will be sharing ideas using the products in the Peaceful Poppies Suite in the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. I know you will find a lot of wonderful ideas!
The product I chose to feature are the Poppy Moments Dies from the Peaceful Poppies Suite. These dies are one of my very favorites from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. They are big, bold and make quite a statement.
I got this idea from BJ Peters. She used something called screen lathe for the wood pieces but I wasn't able to find that product. I went to the hardware store and bought an 8 ft long piece of what I think is molding. It is flat on one side and rounded on the other. We cut it to 6" lengths and sanded the cut edges. I painted the front and ends of the wood pieces a couple of times using black acrylic paint. It is also a good idea to paint the back side of the wood.
The Whisper White CS I used measures 5-1/2" x 5-1/2". I stamped the sentiment from the Here's to Strong Women set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The poppies were cut using Cherry Cobbler for the outline and Poppy Parade for the base with Basic Black for the centers. The leaves were cut using Mossy Meadow as the outline and Old Olive for the base.
When positioning the flowers remember that the wood pieces still need to be attached, so you do not want to position the flowers or leaves all the way to the top or bottom edge of the paper. The wood pieces are secured to the paper using Tear & Tape Adhesive. You need to also attach a cord of some kind to hang it. I used the Black 1/8" Cord which is currently on the Clearance Rack for $2.40! I added some additional Tear and Tape to secure down the cord. I cut strips of Basic Black CS to cover up the back of the wood. This little step goes a long way to adding a finishing touch to the project.
