Poppy Bottles

I made this card for Jennifer McGuire & Kristina Werner's Online Summer Card Camp but never got it posted. Are any of you participating? It's been great fun. I just wish I had had more time to camp & play. Maybe if we all band together, we can talk them into 'a kids are back in school, now we can camp' camp:-)

For this card, I used two of my favorite Stampendous go-to stamps: Dream Text (R105) & Poppy Bottles Perfectly Clear Stamp Set (SSC1092). This poppy set is so versatile. I adore the long poppy stems in their bottles & the cute, 'handwritten' sayings. These sentiments are the perfect size to stamp on a tiny tag & then tie around one of the stems. The set even includes a solid poppy bloom if you prefer to stamp in the color instead of using markers or pencils. Speaking of pencils, that's what I used to color my poppies. I then accented them with a little Glossy Accents. It is hard to see in the picture but I stamped the entire front panel with the Dream Text. The colored pencils acted as a resist. With a button, some twine & a little scoring on the card base the card is done.

Thanks for visiting!


  1. Beautiful! I love all the little details.

  2. Great card! I love the contrast of the kraft and the red.
