Where has Spring gone? The wind has been biting and there was a sugar dusting of snow at 7 this morning.
Definitely a day to stay inside, so I got my latest treats out, my Stampin Up purchases from the party I couldn't attend 'cos of the shed builders. Di is confined to home because of her accident so couldn't get them to me until I got to her last week. What with one thing and another I didn't get the chance to play with them 'til now. I love the Pleasant Poppies stamp so thought I would play with that one first.
At 'Less is More', the theme this week is to use 3 of something in your design and to visit 3 new blogs and leave a comment. I immediately thought of my dandelion wishes card, so thought I would try a take on that one with the poppy stamp.
This is the first of my attempts. I stamped in Versamark then embossed with white and inked the card with Squeezed Lemon and Peeled Paint DI. I cut the squares using a square die and mounted them on slightly larger black squares. I masked off diagonally across the base card and stamped a text stamp in the same DI's. The squares were stuck flat and the sentiment from LOTV was stamped in Black Onyx Versafine.
Next I thought I would use red and black embossing powder.
The text this time was a Hero Arts Hearts 'Happy' definition stamp and I used Squeezed Lemonade and Festive Berries DI's and mounted the squares on foam pads. Greeting from the stash. Not sure which one I prefer.
I shall enter the green one at Less is More - Three
and the red one at CASology - Blush
Thanks for popping over and keep crafting.
