Poppy Promenade



Morning Peeps, it's Saturday so that means a new challenge at Allsorts and this week Susan has chosen a very appropriate theme of Poppies and/or Remembrance. Our sponsors are Cuddly Buddly and Marianne Designs.

It's no secret that I adore Poppies and probably have far more Poppy stamps and dies than is healthy. The Poppy image I have used today is a newish release from Penny Black 40-311 Poppy Trio, stamped onto a background of Dylusions and stenciling using Penny Black 25-001 Promenade. The sentiment is Penny Black 1483E Cherish Yesterday which I masked and stamped to break down into three.......the writing is too close to just stamp and cut into sections but it's easy enough to do this way with trusty post it notes as masks.

Happy weekend everyone.

  35. I love PB too, more than is good for me, and especially the new line of Creative Dies. This poppy image is so pretty & will be quite versatile as well. Love the way you've got the stenciling in the pretty background and separating the sentiment as you did, was especially effective on this particular card, that was for your Remembrance Sunday. It says what is truly well worth remembering, as we remember those who sacrificed so much for our freedoms. TFS & keep on loving your pretty poppies and especially PB images! Hugs

  38. This is stunningly beautiful. I love the tones you've used here. That red just pops against the green background. And that background almost seems to be glowing. You've got some major talent!
