Celebrate Spring Poppies

The wildflowers of Spring are in full bloom here in Texas. Right now the Texas Poppies are blooming, and their colors are beautiful.  I started by stamping the Poppies by Stacy Stamps on a piece of white card stock and colored it with my Copic markers.  I rounded the corners and mounted it on a rectangle of the NEW  Watercolored Memories 6"x 6" paper pad from Ken Oliver Designs, now available in the Classy Cards n' Such Online Store.  This beautiful paper pack is so colorful. Each page is double sided, with one side bright and vibrant colors, and the other side soft and muted colors.

I then stamped the banner, Celebrate, from the Christmas Pennant Swag from Our Daily Bread Designs and cut it out using the matching die, Pennant Swag.  I then stamped and die cut the small blossoms from Botanical Rose sets from Heartfelt Creations, and also colored with my Copic markers.  I added a few small leaves from the Leaf Cluster die set from Impression Obsession, then added Cherry Chocolate Dew Drops from the Robin's Nest to the centers for pop!

I hope you have enjoyed my card, and will be inspired to enter our weekly challenge on our blog! See you all again soon.

  2. Your poppies are beautiful! I wish the banner wasn't covering part of the flower.I'm not big on banners, so I'd be okay if the banner wasn't on the card, but I think this was for one of the CCNS challenges. The card is beautiful even with the banner! : )
