Many Poppies!

Hey all! More Poppy cards! I saw something similar on Pinterest and had to give it a go! There are several versions here, all basically the same so I'm going to put them all in one post. Here is the first one. 

Colors are Basic Black, Whisper White and Poppy Parade. Concept here is like the Triple Time stamping we've done here several times, but this is only two layers. So I cut all the layers, then lightly attached the two sheets of Whisper White together and stamped the Poppy flower in two steps. Background blot in Poppy Parade, over with the Poppy in Memento Black. Turns out this is one of my slight OCD triggers -lining up that image made me crazy! I ended up grabbing my Stamp-a-ma-jig for the flower and testing on scratch paper the best way to go together. I'm happy now, they are all similar! When you initially stamp these you will get some ugly edges. But when you put the layers together, they disappear. Try it :)

The card base is Basic Black, with a Whisper White background layer. The top two layers are cut with the Stitched Rectangles dies. See that stitched edge?? I added some sequins (Pearl from the Basic set) for an accent. Oh, and the saying is from Peaceful Moments.

Similar but different flower and sequin placement, more white edge.

This last one I decided to try something different, and I don't hate it. After stamping the flowers I picked up the large splatter image and went between most of them with Poppy Parade ink. What do you think?? Building up my stash of birthday cards. Hoping to get lots mailed this year! Four went today, including two of these.

Thanks for stopping by today! Product details and shopping links below.
