Pretty Poppies

Hello all and thanks for stopping by today.  I am so excited that it's MFT Teaser Time!  There are so many fun new products to share!  Up first is a new stamp set and Die-namics die set by the talented Lisa Johnson.  I am REALLY loving the new Pretty Poppies stamp set and coordinating Poppies and Leaves Die-namics.  I literally could have made a dozen cards with this set.  The flowers are GORGEOUS and the font on the sentiments is *just right*.  The new Electric Red Premium Dye Ink is PERFECT for the poppies and the Gumdrop Green ink is gorgeous for the stems and leaves!  L.O.V.E.


Here, I've stamped the poppies on the coordinating die-cuts in Electric Red ink on the new Smooth White Card Stock.  The Smooth White Card Stock is perfect for stamping solid stamps.  It's very smooth and allows for a super smooth and crisp image.

The background words were masked off (to fit inside the stitching) and stamped in Electric Red ink.  The stems and leaves were stamped in Gumdrop Green ink.  I stamped the sentiment on the smallest of Fishtail Flag Layers STAX.



I went polar opposite for my second card and got "down and dirty".  I used a variety of techniques and supplies to create this effect.


All the edges were sponged using Kraft ink. It is my FAVORITE ink for sponging!


I created realistic "dew" on my flower using Goosebumps spray (I also sprayed it all over my card).  The flower head is the die-cut from Poppies and Leaves cut from Black Licorice Card Stock. The stem is from the new Flower Box Die-namics.


The background script stamp is just GORGEOUS.  


Here is one more look.  :)
