I Brake For Poppies

Hi everybody,

I am in the process of trying to decorate my boyfriend's house and didn't know what I wanted to do in the dining room.  One day I was browsing one of the local Facebook groups that sell things and saw a poppy picture.  I knew that would be the start of my decorating in that room and would decorate around that.  What does that have to do with anything you ask?  I started loving poppies then, this was around the first of the year and all of a sudden, I am seeing poppies everywhere, including the card making business, stamps and dies galore.  I Brake For Stamps has a few really pretty poppy stamps including the one I am using on today's card.  Here is a link to the I Brake For Stamps STORE.  Here is a link to the stamp I am using called, Stained Glass Poppies.

I wanted to do something different so I made a square window card with this stamp.  One of my friends lost a family member recently so I wanted to use this one as a sympathy card.  I used Gina K Designs White, Red Hot and Sweet Corn card stocks.  I colored the stamp with copics, which are listed below.  I used a Lawn Fawn die called, Thinking About You Border.  It is all one phrase but I cut it apart so it would fit on the card.  I used the Silhouette Adhesive Sheets with the die so that all I would have to do is peel off the backing and stick it to the card, no worries about it coming unglued.  I used a Cuttlebug Polka Dot embossing folder but only embossed part of the card.  I used Diamond Stickles in the center of one of the flowers.  The patterned paper on the inside is by Echo Park called Sweet Girl.

I just used a Spellbinders Classic Large Square die to cut out the opening for the window. 

Copics Used:  Poppies R20, R22, R24, R27
Stems and Leaves:  G20, G24, G28
Frame:  Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17
Center of Poppy:  E23, E25, E27 and Y15
Background:  BG000 and BG01 and also used tip to tip to blend better

I hope you liked this card and you can get this stamp for yourself at a 10% discount by using Coupon code SAVE10REGINA, off your total purchase.
