Inspired By Stamping July 2015 Release: Poppies


Hi, friends!  I'm super excited to share a card with you today using some of the *NEWEST* stamps for the July 2015 Inspired By Stamping release!!!  Today, we are sharing creations using our *NEW* Flower of the Month: Poppies stamp set.  Take a peek at my card...


To create my bouquet, I stamped the bouquet image from the Poppies stamp set onto white card and also onto the patterned paper.  I colored the flowers then cut them out.  I colored the stalks on the patterned paper.  I added some twine to tie it together--just a few small hole punches and some threading help it look more "real".


I did a bit of flower shaping to puff up the flowers before adding them to the bouquet.  I also added Wink of Stella for added shine.  I just LOVE these gorgeous blooms from the Poppies set!!!



The sentiment was stamped directly onto the patterned paper.  It is also from the *NEW* Poppies stamp set.  Some rhinestones add a bit more shine.  Isn't this font super darling?!


A doily corner and more rhinestones gussied up the top corner.  I like the way it seems to balance the rest of the card.  :)


I am just LOVING the way this card turned out!  I hope you like it, too!  I also think that this set is a MUST HAVE, don't you???  Please leave me your thoughts in the comments below!

That's all for me today, friends!  I'll be back tomorrow with another release creation using *NEW* stamps from Inspired By Stamping!  Also, I hope that you come and join in our monthly challenge for YOUR chance to win some stamps from Inspired By Stamping!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping to you all! :)
