Popped up Poppies!

Popped up a coral poppy on top of a circle on top of a framelit. Also cut a larger framelit out of the DSP.  The other poppies are slightly colored in with marker.

Heart Music for Queen

I made this card for our Queen for the Day Challenge.  Click on the link to find all the details.

I embossed the big heart image with PEWTER!  Then I wheeled the music, then I added some color and blended with blender pens.  The edges are ripped and I added some silver paper and a ribbon.  The sentiment oval is popped up.

Red Poppies horizontal

Here's my second card using this new stamp background "pleasant poppies".
Very simple - I just stamped it in red and cut the top with an edgelit and embossed the card base to match.
I used 2 ribbons and a piece of silver glitter paper and 2 butterflies.
The colors are from Pals Paper Arts - Real Red, Primrose Petals and Pool Party

Sponging poppies to music

Playing with some new stuff!  I made this card for the Queen for the Day Challenge that I host.

First I wheeled the music notes in blue (I was not precise and some of the notes are very faded looking - on purpose).
Next, I stamped my new Pleasant Poppies background stamp with versamark and embossed with PEWTER!
Then I sponged, then I crumpled, the sponged some more!
Added ribbon and brads.
I'm quite pleased with my first Pleasant Poppies card.  Looking forward to using this stamp set often, it is so versatile!

Here's the closeup.  I took this picture at night time and so the lighting is not good.

New Framelits

2 more cards using my new framelits!
For this one I put the framelit on a bit of a different angle and pierced a circle inside of it.
I embossed and used a glimmer brad on the heart.
The layout is from CAS(E) this sketch!

Colors: Primrose Petals, Basic Gray and Pool Party
Stamp set: Secret Garden

For this one I used the smallest size framelit.  I used it to cut out only a portion of the big heart image from "You are Loved".  A very simple layout.

Colors: Pretty in Pink, Primrose Petals, Midnight Muse, White
Stamp set: You are Loved

Yippee.  Got some new stuff today!  And I'm excited that blogger is even posting my pictures again, so I can show you what I made today!
I'm playing around with the window frames framelits and lots of texture!
On the top card I used 2 different embossing folders and also scoring!  Buttons for the center of the secret garden flowers.
The layout for the top card is from Try Stampin' on Tuesday.

On this card I pierced around my apothecary accents framelit.  I used some silver glitter paper and glimmer brads.
I kept both cards without sentiments so I can add something when the need arises.
