Blazing Poppy Jumbo Tag Tutorial

Heartfelt Creations Wednesday: Jumbo Poppy Tag Tutorial

Happy Heartfelt Creations Wednesday, my friends!  We’re taking another look at the beautiful Blazing Poppy release from Heartfelt Creations.  This time, I have a Blazing Poppy Jumbo Tag Tutorial to share with you.  I think you are going to like it!

Kathy by Design/Blazing Poppy Jumbo Tag TutorialI had a little fun playing with embossing powder on this tag.  I used a Ranger Jumbo Black tag as my base.  The Poppy Border and Filler stamps were done in white pigment ink, then heat embossed with superfine white embossing powder.  Then, I stitched the black tag to a red cardstock base.    Blazing Poppy Jumbo Tag 02aHere,  I used Scattered Straw Distress Embossing Powder to stamp my poppies onto the same red cardstock.  I love the contrast of that yellow embossing powder against the red cardstock!  The centers were filled with Prima flower centers and Black Soot Distress Stickles.  For my foliage, I used the classic leaf stamp and die.

Here’s a  closeup so you can see all the wonderful texture and detail of these gorgeous flowers!


Blazing Poppy Jumbo Tag 02bBut we’re not done having fun with embossing powder yet!  I stamped and die cut 2 of the beautiful Botanical Wings butterflies.  One, from cardstock and one from clear cardstock.  The beautiful black poppies were stamped onto black cardstock and heat embossed with more of the Scattered Straw Distress Ink.  I folded some of the smaller petal layers and tucked them behind my focal sentiment to add extra depth and dimension.

Blazing Poppy Jumbo Tag 02I have a complete supply list and step by step tutorial below so that you can make your own tag if you’d like.  These flowers are stunning, whether you go soft and pastel as I did last week, or you go bold and fiery like this week’s project.  Have fun playing with Blazing Poppies!

I’m entering this tag in the following challenges:

    Wow Kathy. This tag is absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for the tutorial. I thought those poppies were part of the images on the paper until I read how you stamped them with embossing powders, etc. they are so lovely on this tag! You really do have a way with layering things so perfectly. Your dimensional butterfly is the perfect compliment. Love the color! All of the die cuts and other elements you have added…my goodness! Just beautiful!
