Painted Poppies by Stampin' Up

Painted Poppies Bundle and Peaceful Moments Bundle, although hard to choose, might be my favorites out of our new spring mini catalog! It is my goal to share with you a new card/tutorial each week from this Pleasant Poppies Suite.

Let me explain what a SUITE is. Its the best way to purchase the Peaceful Poppies! In the Peaceful Poppies suite, you get the advantage of 10% discount by purchasing the stamp set and dies bundled. You will also get all the products associated with these bundles that specifically coordinate with it; Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper, Peaceful Poppies Sequins, Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, and Peaceful Poppies Elements…….using just one item #153938

The next best thing about purchasing a suite is FREE SALE-A-BRATION gifts! I would suggest adding a package of Poppy Parade card stock and sponge daubers for coloring your 1/4″ Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon to bring your product total to $150. That will give you 3 level 1 Sale-a-bration gifts or 1 level 2 and 1 level 1 Sale-a-bration gifts! 🙂

My goal is to have a video each week to inspire you to love Peaceful Poppy Suite too! below is a link for the first card.

Be sure to add a few Peaceful Poppy Sequins too – I forgot to show you on the video.

A Few More Christmas Cards

My sincere apologies if I have left one out! I finally am opening and cleaning my desk from the busy holidays. I thankful for and love each one of the cards I have received! They bring a smile to my face, warmth in my heart, and encouragement for my day!
