Hi blogging friends. I have a quick post for you tonight. As you know I am a big fan of flowers - anything flowers and I have to have it. Penny Black's latest release had me swooning! My card today is showcasing both a new Penny Black stamp and matching die, both purchased at
The Paper Pickle - my local craft store.
(I was inspired by the sample that was sent to The Paper Pickle for display)
I started out by stamping the poppies twice using SU Soft Sky. I then used the matching die and cut the poppies out of Soft sky as well - I cut this twice so I could pop up the poppies. I glued one set of the poppies to my card front, then for the other set I cut off the poppies from the stem and then applied versamark and embossed with 'sticky powder'. I then poured on crystal glitter ritz and burnished it - so sparkly! Used some SU dimensionals to pop up the poppies.
I also added a bit of glitter to the top of the small flower buds.
Now, as much as I love white space on a card, it just seamed that I was missing something on this, so pulled out my MFT Die-namics Blueprints 12 and used the small flag stax and cut this out of Soft sky. Love the stitching marks on this. Glued this to the top left corner, applied a couple of light blue pearls, then finished off with a tiny silk bow (made with my bow maker). Card measures 5.50 x 4.25.
