Flourishes Focus on Poppy Patch


Happy Friday, everyone!  It's Flourishes Friday and today the Sr. Design team is focusing on a beautiful old stamp set, the Poppy Patch!  This is a set I think I've had for a very long time, and have very sadly never used!  I LOVE poppies and keep bugging my husband every year to plant some in our yard, so why it's taken me this long to use these beautiful stamps is beyond me!  :)

For my card, I started out by using the Poppy Patch Silhouette cut file to cut out the shape of the poppy I wanted to use on kraft cardstock.  I then stamped my poppy using black Staz-On ink and watercolored using an aquapainter and some Barn Door and Forest Moss distress inks.  For the main sentiment on my card, I used the new "Sweetness of Friendship" stamp, and stamped this on a piece of Basic Grey Manila 6x6 paper.  I finished my card off with some distressed edges, a gingham double-bow, embossing, and some chocolate Kaisercraft pearls.


And here's the simple stamping I added to the inside of the card...
