Poppy Elements


Starting off September on a good note.  Here's a pretty card for your viewing pleasure (or to CASE, whichever works for you).  I know there is a whole bunch of super cool and super yummy new stampsets in the new catalog that I could have used but I just LOVE this stamp set.  Its so simple to use.  At first, I thought that the big stamp was going to be daunting but its really such a breeze.  It has become my 'go-to' stamp set so far.  It totally makes a quick beautiful card in a hurry. 

For this card, I stamped the image in Early Espresso on Whisper White card stock and then colored in the flowers with Poppy Parade and the leaves with Pear Pizzazz.  Don't the names of the new colors all sounds so yummy?  I then lined the inside of the card with Pear Pizzazz card stock and tied some Real Red Satin Ribbon on the top to finish it off. 

Its a simple card for any occasion. I just love how it all came together. 

Stamps: Elements of Style
Ink: Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso
Paper: Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz cardstock
Accessories: Scallop Border Punch, Real Red Satin Ribbon
