Poppy Parade Daisy

Stampin up Poppy Parade

Poppy Parade is another one of this years new In Colors. Don’t you love it?

Although I would consider Poppy Parade a red it has a definite hint of orange to it as well. Since it is such a vibrant colour, I knew it would pair well with the Newsprint designer series paper that will be in the next catalogue. These papers are really neat – dictionary pages, old catalogues, vintage maps, music and more. And do you wanna know a secret? The new catalogue has coordinating sets and accessories for this vintage looking paper. The Newsprint designer series paper is Basic Black and Very Vanilla so I choose to use only those colours with Poppy Parade for this card. 

To make this card, I Iayered a 3-1/2 x 4-3/4" piece of Newsprint paper onto 3-5/8" x 4-7/8" Basic Black cardstock. I wrapped this piece with Basic Black satin ribbon and Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon tying a small knot in the grosgrain.

I made the daisy with the Daisies #2 die for the Big Shot in layers of Basic Black, Poppy Parade and Newsprint paper. To hold the flower together, I added a 5/8" Vanilla jumbo brad to the center.

After adding a greeting in Basic Black ink on Newsprint paper and punching with the Modern Label punch,  I layered onto a larger piece of Poppy Parade cardstock and added a 5/16" vanilla jumbo brad.

Finally, I layered Poppy Parade cardstock onto a Basic Black card and assembled the pieces. A really easy card!


This card has more of a shabby chic look to it than most of my cards. Do you like it? Please leave a comment and let me know.

    This is amazing! I love way you used the newsprint paper as both a background and a part of the flower. Everything about it is just awesome!

    Loved the Poppy-I love doing layers and the newsprint paper is wonderful for vintage ards and geneology pages in your scrapbook. I wish SU would come up with a set of ladies stamps. Different eras. They add so much to vintage cards and scrapbook pages. Men in suits with hats too.

    thanks for the video on rescuing our glue sticks.
