Everything is Coming Up Poppies…

The first time I saw this Pleasant Poppy stamp it was love at first sight.  Do you ever do that when your are looking through a new catalog?  I have no trouble picking out the sets I know I want to work with.  Not to say sometimes I’ll see a card someone else has made with a stamp set I hadn’t considered and then decide I could work with that stamp set too.  You don’t even want to know how many stamp sets I have…I don’t even know.  But I do have a pretty intense filing system and can put my hands on any set I need.

So here is the card I wanted to show you today made with the Pleasant Poppy set…


Wouldn’t this be a great card for a graduation?  Or a wedding?  Well…for lot of things.  See that little bloom that bends over?  I just love that.  I used StazOn Black to stamp the poppies and Crisp Cantaloupe and Poppy Parade markers were used to blend over the flowers.  The stems are Pear Pizazz.  The word set is called Loving Thoughts.  A favorite of mine is to stamp the envelope to match the card.

Can you think of what you would do with this stamp set?  I have another card to show you tomorrow with this set that is entirely different.  Hope you found something here today that inspires you to get your creative juices flowing and make a masterpiece.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today:  “Listen to understand not to say something back in return.”

If you are inky, you got to be happy…
