Poppy Seeds

 Good morning!  I hope you are doing well!  Here's a bright and colorful card to cheer anyone!  A friend gave me the white oval and white butterfly diecuts, and the poppy red was really striking against the white and dark green.  This poppy stamp is from Chocolate Baroque's set called Flora & Fauna.  If you click on the name, it will take you directly to that location on Chocolate Baroque's website.  The complete set is just beautiful, and I can't wait to use each and every flower and butterfly!  I don't know what it is about poppies, but they are irresistable to me!  Copic markers were used to color the flowers.

You can see a little of the sparkle and shine on the flowers in this photo.  I used Copic's At You Spica glitter pens to add it.  The red swirled background paper is from a DCWV spring stack.

I hope you've enjoyed your visit, and I look forward to seeing you again! 

New Chocolate Baroque Stamps! Amazing!

Chocolate Baroque continues to amaze many people with the new stamps they are producing!  I'd like to share some of my projects made with some of the new stamps, and I'd appreciate your comments at the bottom of the post.  Thank you, and I hope you enjoy!  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

These are from the Sunny Sunflowers set. 

I stamped the images on white cardstock, with Only Orange ink from Stampin' Up.  The shading was done with Copic markers.  The background is from a summer stack of paper, and I used two embossing folders on the white panels.  Pearl brads completed the centers.  The bottom border was a die cut given to me by a friend, and the word, "Happy" is from the Chocolate Baroque Artistic Expressions set.  I don't have any sentiment stamps from Chocolate B yet, so I used one from my collection.  I love the patterned background paper, so I cut a thin strip 1/4" wide, and wove it through the eyelets on the border strip.   

More to come...
