Welcome to the Lawn Fawn June Inspiration Week!
Today the Lawn Fawn Design Team is featuring the Pretty Poppies dies. These gorgeous flowers are perfect for becoming the focal point of cards or other paper crafting projects! The poppies were die cut from Bristol Smooth Cardstock and colored with Distress Oxide Inks.
The poppies and leaves were die cut from Bristol Smooth Cardstock using the Pretty Poppies dies. The flowers were inked with Worn Lipstick and Fired Brick Distress Oxide Inks. The inside pieces for each flower were inked with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink and the leaves were inked with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Ink with the edges slightly inked with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink. Two flower shapes were layered for each flower as well as two flower centers per flower. Glossy Accents was applied to the center of each flower.
For the background of each card, two panels were die cut from smooth white cardstock using the Stripey Backdrop Die. One was flipped over and then they were layered to create a lattice effect for the background. White on white backgrounds are some of my favorite. Texture is what makes for a classic, yet subtle backdrop for the rest of the design.
The largest frame from Say Cheese Again was die cut from smooth white cardstock and black cardstock and then layered with the black layer being slightly offset behind the white layer. This give a big of a shadow effect helping the polaroid frame stand out from the white on white backdrop.
Greetings from the Happy Happy Happy Stamp Set were stamped with Versamark Ink on the square insert from the polaroid die cut. I embossed the greetings with white embossing powder and then inked over them for embossed resist with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink. I buffed the ink off the embossed areas with a paper towel, then spritzed the square with water from a Distress Sprayer before blotting dry with a paper towel. The frames and greeting were adhered to the background as shown.
The layered flowers were adhered to opposite corners, leaves were tucked under the flowers and around the frames to "frame it up" and then Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew were adhered as a finishing touch.
