Parade of Poppies

Hello Sweet 'n Sassy Friends!  Have you noticed how poppies are popping up everywhere? Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has several fabulous new poppy stamp sets as well as some old favorites that can be used in many different ways and for many different occasions  I thought I would share several cards made with these stamp sets with you today!

The first card uses the new Precious Poppies stamp set,  Mini Tags & Sentiments,  Mini Tags Die Set, and Friendship Script Background.  Although I love using my Copics, this card was white embossed on Kraft card sock and watercolored with reinkers.  The colors seem to get a little more vibrant on the Kraft card stock with this technique.

And speaking of vibrant, this poppy colored with Copics seems to be popping right off the card!  The Poppy Background stamp was used behind the lattice, and the large poppy from Precious Poppies was used in the middle.

The final card uses an old time favorite, Poppies & Greetings.  The image was stamped several times across the middle panel and colored with Copic Markers.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit with us today!  I hope you've been inspired by this Parade of Poppies!

Blessings to you....and have a wonderful day!
