Meadow Dies! Let Them be Your Art!

Make Beautiful Cards Without A Lot of Stamping or use the stamp set and the dies and watch the magic happen!


Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Many eyes go through the meadow, but few see the flowers in it.” See whimsical wildflowers, fluttering butterflies, pretty plants, and more with the beautiful Quiet Meadow Bundle!


Today I am showcasing 5 cards I made with the Quiet Meadow Bundle 155847 (2021-2022 Stampin' Up!® Annual Catalog page 110). I used left overs from one card to make a second card and I changed up another card just by using a different card base color.


These 5 cards show you how you can use just the Meadow Dies to create beautiful cards and you can use the Quiet Meadows stamp set to create beautiful vintage collage cards. Alone or together, this bundle is sure to appeal to all stampers.


Add the Meadow Dies to DSP with a sentiment and a bow. It's all you need! I used Hand-Penned DSP, Crinkle Seam Binding ribbon and the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set along with the Meadows Dies to create this bouquet card. DON'T FORGET THE BLING!!!!!


Stamp A Collage and color in the flowers. Cut out one of the flowers and adhere it to your card with dimensionals for some interest! Here I used the Quiet Meadow stamp set, Stampin' Up!® Chalk Marker to fill in the stamped flowers Crushed Curry and Old Olive Ink to stamp the colors on the bouquet of flowers. Add the lace, pearls, and a sentiment and your collage card is so very vintage!


Above, you can see how an Embossing Folder can add interest to your card as well. I Used the Painted Texture Embossing Folder on the Black and White card and then added the Meadow dies in Basic Black card stock and Vellum. Switch up the sentiment to create a second card.


TIP: Use the negative of the die you created one card with and create another card by adding colored card stock to the back of it!


Change up the collage card by using a different color of card stock for the base of the card and different colors of ink for the bouquet. Don't forget the inside of your card! Continue to wow your recipient with beautiful colors, textures and designs from the envelope to the inside of your cards.


I hope you enjoyed these tips and the cards. Thank you for stopping by!


These are the products I used to make all 5 five of the cards above. If you have any questions, please let me know at purplepaisleypapers@gmail.com
