Hands up who has seen the gorgeous new Poppy stamp from Bee Crafty! It is limited edition so get yours while you can.
My card this week is using this new stamp and I hope I have done it justice. Here is the card I have made...
I started by heat embossing just the head of the poppy in white on some white card. I then did the same with the Remember sentiment.
I went over the whole thing with Fired Brick distress ink and a blending tool. My new Bee Crafty blending mat makes blending so much easier! I went over the whole card once then went round the edges a second time to get the edges slightly darker.
I mounted it onto white and black card and then onto my card blank. It is an 8x8 card so you can see that the stamp is really quite large and can definitely hold its own as a feature on a large card.
I hope you like it as much as I do. This was one of those cards where I didn't start with a plan, it just evolved.
See you next week

Not only did our Bev recreate 1 of my projects, no she did 3.. Such a buzz.. Thank you Bev x
My favorite one is the background one and im guessing the girls sent that one to me, as they know I LOVE scrapbooking and these background are just perfect for that as well as cards, mixed media, canvases ect ect.. So yep.. I jumped right in and made a LO (LayOut).
I took my "Time flies" stamp and cut it apart to get "time flies" bit on its own. Dont worry, you can assemble your stamp on the stamp block again and no one will ever know the stamp was cut ;-)
I aslo stamped my greetings in Archival.
My wings, I stamped onto white cardstock and heat embossed with white glitter embosing powder, cut them out and finished them with a wee gem.
The nips are strait onto my card itself and the feather is raised on a black mat using foampads.
Watercolour card stock. Water wash distress ink background. My wings are white embossing powder and I used the heart "inny" inkable to gently make the heart on the background.
I just gently swiped the colour out from the middle of the heart "inny"out to the egdes.
I finished with water splashes and black splashes using my splatter brush.
Background is distress ink puddles where I just dragged my card through and left to dry. I then stamped on my feather and slowly cut it out. I stuck accetate on the back of the feather hole.
I then added my black mat to my card blank so it was ready. I turned my feather piece over and added double sided foam tape all around the feather and the edges. Make sure there is NO gaps around the feather or your sequins will fall out. I put my sequins down on the black card and added the feather piece over. I finished with my greeting and hand drawn stitches.
I stamped the wing again and my greeting on a panel of vellum and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Voila.. Very quick and easy.
I simply stuck some paper on is from the Background pack, added a few extra bits I cut from a second sheets. Smothered it in matching distress ink (These papers matche the distress ink palet SO well. think this one is victorian velvet but not 100% sure) and stamped the nips and the ledger in the same colour. I stamped the feather and ink well and heat embossed with gold, cut them out and layered ontop. I finished with a bit of gold embossing powder around the edges and stamping my greeting in black Archival.
