Simon Says - Poppy Perfection April Card Kit

Hi my friends, I'm sharing cards I made using the Tim Holtz Transparent Layers pack included in Simon Says Stamp Poppy Perfection April 2023 Card Kit, along with sentiments from the Poppy Perfection stamp set and Moda Scrap Spring Poppies 6" x 6" Paper Pad. The kit is still available to purchase at time of writing but if you wish, you can also buy the individual items separately, click HERE.

I die-cut 2 card blanks using Simon Says Nested Domed Arches and used smaller dies to cut the Moda Scrap Spring Poppies paper, Distress Watercolor card and the Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Transparent Layer. 
I fixed the Distress Watercolor and Transparent Layer die-cuts together with an eyelet. It seems eyelets are coming back in to fashion, which is good news because I have many containers of these little blighters in all shapes, sizes and colours.
I fixed the patterned paper to the card blank using Distress Collage Medium and added the foam strips included in the kit to the back of Distress Watercolor Arch.
I added a twine bow to the top of Arch and fixed in place. I stamped the sentiments from the Poppy Perfection stamp set on to scraps of Distress Watercolor card, inked with Simon Says Intense Black ink, fussy cut and fixed in place.

For the second card, I created a frame from the patterned paper using the Nested Domed Arches dies, cut the rest of the pieces, as before, using smaller dies from the set. I fixed the frame to the card blank and the patterned paper arch into the negative space.
I added small dots of Ranger Glossy Accents behind the flowers on the Transparent Layer and fixed on top. I stamped the sentiment from Poppy Perfection on to a scrap of Distress Watercolor card, fussy cut and added to the card. To finish, I added Trinity Stamps Candy Apple Heart Sprinkles to the cards, ably assisted by Simon Says Reverse Tweezers, also included in the kit.

Have fun with whatever you are making
