Pleasant Poppies....

The Sun is out here!  Well for a bit anyway. 
Thought I would share with you some Pleasant Poppies cards we did in Stamp class recently.
We used Real Red, Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie, Marina Mist, Old Olive and Basic Black.
On this one we use the pumpkin pie inkpad with the blender pen first and then went over sections with the tangerine tango inkpad.
All the sentiments are all from the Bloomin with Kindness stamp set.

I stamped the base card with the distressed dots in Real Red first and then added the polka dot paper layer and borders from the scallop ribbon punch.
We stamped the poppies on a piece of 12.5cm x 5.5cm or 4 7/8" x 2 1/4" and stamped them again to layer them up.  This time we used the markers read red and basic black to colour them in.

 We used marina mist for the colour on this one, we stamped on a layer of 9.5cm x 13.8cm
  or 3 3/4" x 5" whisper white and then again to pop up three of the poppies. 
The sentiment was stamped in versamark and embossed with black embossing powder on some vellum cardstock.

The spotlight technique was used for this simple card.  The poppies were stamped a couple of times on a 14.3cm x 7cm or 5 1/4" x 2 3/4" piece of tangerine tango and coloured in with the marker pens, tangerine tango and old olive.
The poppies were stamped again on whisper white and punched out using the 1 3/4" circle punch, this time the trio was coloured in with the blender pen and the pumpkin pie ink pad.

Thanks for looking,
