CAS Poppies | ft. Stampin' Up "Birthday Blossoms"

Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a great day.

Ever dig through your stash and find something that you were so excited to get, then completely forgot you had? I know I've mentioned this before, but honestly it never ceases to surprise me. A set that I saw and wanted so badly, then finally got my hands on, then it made its way to the stamp pile just to be lost and forlorn.

I guess we all just get so excited with our new stuff. I mean we can't just order one thing at a time, we'd spend all our lives waiting. Then there it is, sitting there, all shiny and new and just begging to be used.

To begin, I stamped the single poppy and the greeting from Stampin' Up's "Birthday Blossoms" set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock. (Is that even a poppy?)

I then coloured them in with Copic markers, and created a tiny drop shadow with the warm grays.

I mounted the panel on a standard A2 sized card base, and that about wraps this one up. Super fast, super easy, and quite delicate IMO.

I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own.
