Poppies for Remembrance

Hello Friends - it's been a crazy week has been cutting into fun time. Today I have a set of cards using one of the new Rubber Stamp Tapestry sets - Poppies for Remembrance.  It's such a lovely set and a perfect way to help hurry Spring along.

You're Amazing - This card was made by cutting a small rectangle from cream colored cardstock. I stamped the various poppy heads using Rhubarb Stalk, Morocco and Tangelo Memento Inks in the upper 2/3's of the panel. Next I took a stipple brush and pounced Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink in the bottom third.  I then used the Bamboo Memento Dual Tip Marker and drew in the stems.  This stamped panel was matted with green cardstock and mounted on a tomato red card blank.  Finally the sentiment from the new Mom and Dad clear stamp set was stamped using VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink.

Because of You.... I started off by stamping the tiny branch from Secret Garden along the left side of a 3x4" beige card panel using Verde VersaFine Clair Ink.  I went back and then stamped the poppy blossoms again using the same Memento inks from the first card and finished the area off by stamping the poppy leaf from another new set Poppy Wreath.  The sentiment "Because of you" (from the stamp set of the same name) was stamped with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink.  This panel was then spritzed with Pear Tart Fireworks! Spray.  It was mounted with a smaller piece of green cardstock and mounted on an orange card blank.

My final card for today is a joke between my Mom and I.  I always tease her that she likes my brother more which is why I put the "your favorite child" at the bottom - LOL!!  For this card I stamped the poppy blossoms in a loose grid pattern then went back and used the tiny branch and stamped in between them this way and that.  It makes for a nice hand made pattern paper.  Again I used a sentiment from the Mom & Dad set of stamps stamped with VersaFine Clair ink.  This panel was mounted on a dark green panel which was mounted on a light moss card blank. 

I hope you enjoy these cards as much as I did making them.
I will be sharing more fun using some of the other new stamp sets soon!
Until then...
Ink on my friends!
