Poppy Patch

Today Flourishes issues three new summertime sets – and I want to take time over the next few days to show you them.  First is Poppy Patch – a wonderful set of poppy flowers, buds, leaves and sentiments created by Marcy Hawley.  I lived in California for many years and have wonderful memories of taking a drive on the weekends just to look at the poppies as they were in their height of bloom.  The vivid orange blossoms against a field of green always made me smile.  For my card, I wanted to go softer, so I started with Guava textured cardstock as the base card, mounted a panel of white on top.  I created the main piece on regular guava cardstock and stamped and embossed it in white, using Brilliance Moonlight White ink and Ranger Seafoam White embossing powder.  I have several white inks but  found that embossing in white gives a much more vivid white than merely stamping.  I sponged white around the edges.  Ribbon was wrapped around the corners – white satin with a guava looking ribbon on top of that.  Both ribbons were found in my stash and I don’t know where I got them, but I was thrilled when I found ribbon to match the paper!  The half pearls were just the right touch to finish off the card. 

Here is what the full set looks like.  Thanks for checking in and happy stamping!
