Poppies and yet more Poppies


Morning Peeps another weeks rolled round and it's time for a new challenge at Allsorts where this week Kath has set the theme of Anything Goes with the option to add Buttons and/or Bows.

Stamp Addicts are our sponsor and Sarah will be on TV again during The Craft Store's Family Favourites event on Thursday 24th June at 7pm.

Some beautiful Poppy stamps will feature in the show so I was in my element creating samples, above following the Anything Goes option at Allsorts is one using Emily's Poppies, small and medium along with the pretty Poppy border stamp. Below is another of my samples, two MDF hearts, acrylic paints and crackle glaze, Glossy Accents added to the Poppies and a SA sentiment.


An MDF tag following the Buttons and Bows option which was also for a Stamp Addicts show at The Craft Store a while back, acrylic ink and crackle glaze, more texture added with a script stencil and texture paste and the SA Kingfishers, stamped cut out and placed onto the tag. A ladder ribbon bow and some sequins.


Lastly I have to share another photo of my lovely Poppies, they have produced flowers every day but on Tuesday there were ten in bloom (one rather hidden) so had to take another photo.


Hope you all have a good weekend and my thanks as always for your kind comments and words of encouragement.

Stunning cards and fabulous flowers.
We are having a hot week, my flowers are blooming beautifully, but they'll grow so fast and the wind turn them down;-))m

Kathleen said...

You can not beat poppies on a card and you have used some really fab poppy images. Your designs and colour choice are brilliant and I am so jealous of your photo of the fabulous colours of your own poppies.
Thank you.

Wow, quella concertina con la forma orientaleggiante, i meravigliosi papaveri e il sole risalta così bene in azzurro e rosa!! Assolutamente adorabile!!Bellissimo lo sfondo a stencil!
I cuori sono davvero uno splendido home-decor, dolce e romantico! Mi piace molto come hai messo i piccoli papaveri tutto attorno!
Stupenda anche la tag con il Martin Pescatore!
Una splendida fioritura nel tuo giardino, quei papaveri sono così allegri e vibranti!
Buona domenica
