Challenge #10 - July  2015 - A Day In The Park!   We want to see how you'd spend the day at the park - admiring flowers, playing catch with your fur baby, flying a kite, maybe just watching the squirrels run around?   So many possibilities!  Just make sure you include at least one Poppystamps image on your design!

Poppy Stamps Challenge Day! A Day at the Park! Well here in Northern California there are not many kids at the park, we have had heat temps int he triple digits. Today is expected to be 108! I made a card for the challenge using the Deer Clear Stamps and Sentiments. Near where I used to live 14 years ago there was a park called Vasona. it had water where you could rent boats, canoes, paddle boats. My kids loved it! That was my inspiration for this card!

I used Copic markers to color my images. Please join us here at the Poppystamps blog to Play along and sumbitt your entry!

Thanks and have a great Day!

Ornate Tea Thanks Poppystamps

Welcome to the Poppystamps blog and my day to post some card inspiration for you!
Poppytea1I apologize for the sun shadows and the dark photo. It has been so windy here that I have to snap fast before my cards get blown over! I used a Memory Box Stencil and tinted Gesso to create my drink stains background, then I die cut the tea pot and cup. I chose one of my embossing folders to add a dry embossed element to the tea set. The card is based on a sketch I saw Online. I added the embossed in black sentiment to the card  to finish it off.

Happy Father's Day

Wishing all the Dad's out there a very Happy Father's Day! This is always a hard day for me. I posted a tribute and wish for my father and it always makes me sad. Going to be strong for him as I know that is what he would have wanted.

This card was created using a Whippersnapper designs stamp and my copic markers. I added the die cut word and stamped sentiment. This could be for Father's Day or a Birthday or just a plain ole Thinking of you card!

Have a great day! Check back Monday for a post for Poppystamps!

You're the Best!

I love the bold colors of these papers by Basic Grey and they compliment this SImion Say STamp Card Kit just perfectly! I used my copic markers to color the coffee mug and steam. The sentiment is stamped in versafine onyx black. I used a die from one of my blueprints dienamics from My Favorite Things for the banner.

Have a great day!
