Inspired By Stamping: Orange Poppies


Hello, Inspired By Stamping friends!  I'm here today to share a card I made for a dear friend of mine recently.  I used one of my absolute favorite stamp sets, so I hope you love it as much as I do!  Take a peek...


I started by stamping the poppy bunch image from the Flower of the Month: Poppies stamp set.  I colored it in with Spectrum Noir markers, then added some glitter for shine and texture. 


I then added a sentiment from the Flower of the Month: Poppies set to the panel, a few enamel dots, and some paper piercing.  I then added some black matting so that the focal panel would POP off the card base.


I added some orange polka dot paper, and decorated the inside with another image and sentiment from the Flower of the Month: Poppies set.  I kept the inside image uncolored so that it felt more clean once a message was written.


I gave this card to a friend of mine who recently lost her husband at the age of 33.  My hope is that it brought a little sunshine into her life.  I hope that each of you takes some time to let your loved ones know how much you card today, as well.  Never take them for granted--you never know how long you will be allowed to hold them.


Thank you so much for stopping by today, friends!  That's all I have for you today, but I'll be back soon with more inspiration using fabulous products from the Inspired By Stamping online store.  Until then, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
