The image on this card was a Lili of the Valley freebie with a magazine recently but I can’t remember which one. I coloured with Promarkers and cut it out with classic oval nestabilities. The backing paper was from my stash but was also free with a magazine (but I’m not as much of a cheapskate as that makes me sound, honest!)
My sister loves poppies and she was the reason I bought the Little Claire Poppies die in the first place, so of course I had to use it for her birthday card this year. I decided to keep it pretty simple and based this on a sketch I saw somewhere, but I forgot to note where.
This time I used Poppy (of course!) Promarker with some paper from my stash, mounted onto black Bazzill basics cardstock.
It was my father-in-law’s birthday a week or so back & to say he’s an enthusiastic gardener would be the understatement of the century! So, of course, a garden-themed card is always a safe bet. This time it’s a Paper Nation shrink plastic gardener with matching paper, and rather than using baker’s twine I used gardening twine.
I had to have this stamp as soon as I saw it as I love poppies, and this was my first attempt using Cosmic Shimmer watercolour paints. I couldn’t find any suitable matching backing paper and I was, of course, last minute making the card so I improvised and was quite pleased with how it turned out. The card is 15cm x 15 cm and I discovered that, stamped twice, the stamp fitted perfectly as a border. I inked part of the leaves 3 times as the corner decoration on the main image.
I’m rather late posting this, the wedding was a couple of weeks ago now. As usual it was a rather last-minute rush to make it but apart from the dodgy stamping in the top left corner I think it worked out ok!
