Yet more poppies



Good morning everyone, I've been a bit missing from blog land for a few days as I'm struggling with the dreaded flu and as it is normally the case my compromised immune system means it takes me forever to shake it off. So apologies I've been rubbish at visiting lately, hopefully I will feel up to it in a day or so.

But I do have a couple of shares for you, more of the samples I created for the Create and Craft show with Stamp Addicts this coming Thursday at 4pm and 7pm. Don't forget to watch out for the show as I know there will be lots of inspiration from Sarah and Vicky.


Apart from the coredinations die cut frame and swirl and a bit of sanding down, I did little more to the top card as the poppies which I coloured with Copics says it all. The poppies around the side were made using the TH tattered floral die.

It seems ages since I made an easel card so I thought it was time I did, stamped music randomly on the background then stamped the poppy and coloured with Pan Pastels. The base has the smaller poppy stamp which is part of the set stamped with versafine and dusted with the same colour Pans. Some ruffled ribbon, the same swirl and a Magnolia butterfly............... and that is as close as I'll ever get to a Tilda.

Hope you have a good Tuesday.

poor you, I hope you get better very soon , better stay warm and cosy in your craft room.
Your poppy cards are delightful, you can never have too many and I'm so tempted with that leaf and stem die cut.

Beautiful cards Brenda. The TH die makes a fabulous poppy (with a little hep from yourself of course). The colours on the second card are gorgeous - the feint stamping behind the poppy very effective.
Hope that pesky flu clears off and you feel better soon.

Paula (PEP) said...

Well - you're a die-cut closer to a Tilda than me! Stunningly different these two but it is the first that catches my eye, a real stunner especially with the poppies to embellish as well.
I do hope you start to feel better - there are some nasty things about & not good for the immune system at all. Even my very robust husband needed 3 sets of antibiotics!
