Purple Paisley Papers by Darla Foster
Painted Poppies 2!
I wanted to follow up with another Painted Poppy post to show you a different look using the same Painted Poppies stamp set. These cards actually started out as a challenge from my stamp group, but when I was finished, I realized I did not follow the instructions correctly and therefore I could not enter it. These cards will show you progression stamping. Progression stamping is used for planning what level of cards to prepare for my classes depending on the experience of the stampers attending.
Card 1 is perfect for beginner stampers. Just ink, paper, and stamps. So simple and beautiful. The watercolor look of this set is the beauty. It is meant to be off center, and a bit messy just like water coloring.
Card 2 is a stepped up version of Card 1. This card is for the CASUAL stamper. This card would be more for a stamper that is familiar with a few of the stamping tools and techniques or has previously been to a few of my classes. Paper, ink, fussy cutting, mixing colors and using the die cut machine were what I used to create this card
Card 3 is a stepped up version of card 2. This card is for the AVID stamper. I would prepare this card for a stamper that has been to my classes several times, knows how to use all the tools and who has been stamping for quite some time.
Again, this stamp set is perfect for all stampers. It is the techniques and the tools that you use that makes the difference in the levels.
I love seeing beginner stampers in my classes come back again and again and over the years blossom into avid stampers. Stampin' Up! makes it so easy with the products they sell and coordination of their stamps, ink, paper, embellishments and so many other items. Imagine sending any of these three cards to someone. They would be so delighted. You would too!
