Hi crafty friends, today I’m sharing Poppy Bloom for November and Remembrance day.
I used the My Favorite Things Poppy Bloom stamp set for today’s projects. There is another fabulous background stamp that goes great with this set here – but it didn’t get here in time for me to use it for today’s projects, (next time).
I decided to use all three of the poppy images to create wallpaper for the first card (left). I heat embossed the images in White onto watercolor paper and then colored them in with my Zig Clear Color Markers
Black 060, Geranium Red 029, Deep Green 044, Turquoise Green 042 and yellow 050 and a Tim Holtz detailed Water brush to blend.
Once the image was dry, I mounted it to A2 sized top folding card base in Gina K Thick White (I’m in love Gina’s card stock can you tell? LOL – and I’m so happy that Scrap ‘N Stamp carries it because Gina K Designs no longer ships her card stock to Canada due to our high postage fees).
Once the flowers were dry, I colored the background with a light coat of the deep green and Turquoise Green and blending in lots of water to keep it light. As there are no leaves with these flower images, it was an easy way to add some greenery to the card.
The sentiment is from the Penny Black Love Sentiments stamp set.
I wanted my second card to be a “10 Minutes to WOW” card. This was accomplished by white heat embossing the stamps onto a piece of Gina K Blue Lagoon card stock. Next I mixed a bit of white paint and water and flicked it onto the card front. Once it was dry, I used foam tape to mount it to the white A2 card base.
This time I heat embossed a single poppy onto a small piece of watercolor paper, water colored it and then cut it out to use as an overlay.
The sentiment is from the same Penny Black set.
I did this set in green and black as well, but I think I like the blue and red combo better.
