Poppies Galore....

Just prior to going on holiday my new stamps arrived.... I've been ordering some from Simon Says.... very reasonable postage from the States and in the end it worked out cheaper than buying in store....

One that arrived was the Delicate Blossoms by Hero Arts.  It really is a lovely set... two different sized poppies.  I had fun making some cards with them



For the top one, I used watercolour pencils and a Hero Arts sentiment and then matted onto some blue Bazzill.  The second one was stamped with black ink and clear embossed and then painted with Pearlescent paints.  I matted it and then added to the card base which had been dry embossed using my new Scor-buddy.  And the final one is a mini card 2 7/8 x 3 1/2 inches.  I masked off the bottom of the card and then stamped just the top part of the stamp.  I used some Aqua crayons to colour it it.  Sentiment again by Hero Arts. 

I can hardly believe that I've been back at work for 2 1/2 weeks..... seems like only yesterday we were still away.  Now it's only 7 1/2 weeks till Emma's wedding.... I bet that it comes around so quickly.

Now for some blog candy that Deirdre is having....
Pop over to her blog post and visit her.  She makes some wonderful cards.

Well thanks all for stopping by.  Hope you enjoy my flowers...
Take care

Gorgeous cards with the poppies Dawn! I don't have the larger one of the two, wonderful inspiration! So glad SS offers you good rates on prices and shipping!

Loved the mini card Dawn. I love the sentiments too. Think I may have to buy some of these, I computer generate many of my words, it does not have the same effect.
