Poppy stamp set

Hi everyone. So – I went to the craft show yesterday. The bank balance took a hit, and I have been playing with some of my new buys. I have found a new stamp maker – ‘Stamps by me’. I bought three sets and let me tell you – lovely, brilliant, fabulously designed. Gorgeous. And – found out that their store is only an hour away from home – could be dangerous!

This particular stamp set is called ‘Beautiful’ due to the sentiments in the set, but the flowers are simply stunning, no matter what colour you use.

You have the outline, then the water-colour effect for the colour. As you can see I used several colours from my Catherine Pooler collection, and tried different techniques. Some I just stamped the colour, others I water-coloured, and one of them I did both – water-coloured then stamped on top. I didn’t even use my Misti as the Catherine Pooler inks seem to stamp well first time. (I am sure I’ve mentioned that before!)

The four I have not added a sentiment to, will probably be packed together for a cute little notelet set, after adding some plain white paper as an insert. The last card I played with a different background, embossed with a Sue Wilson ‘Rope Chain’ I bought yesterday at a bargain price.

I particularly like the orange cards, as they are different to what one would expect. I’ll be playing with these a little more over the next few days, as not working all week, and will be adding bits and pieces to them, maybe some water-colouring backgrounds…..the choice is endless.

I shall be entering the following challenges with one of these cards:

  3. It’s great when you’ve been to a craft show and you get home with your new goodies and it sounds like you’ve had a good time. I do love Poppies and your cards are lovely. It’s also really nice to see how they look stamped in different colours. Thank you for sharing your card with us at Stamping Sensations and good luck. Sandra x
