This card was created with the beautiful Poppies set from There She Goes Clear Stamps for a Sketch challenge on SCS a while back.

I stamped the big Poppy flower in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was colored with Copic Markers ( E15, E18, YR61, YR04, YR07, R08, YG93, YG95, YG99), cut out and adhered on a 1 7/8″ x 3 1/2″ piece of October Afternoon The Thrift Store. The edges of the paper were sanded, then sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink. The layer was stitched to a 2″ x 3 11/16″ piece of White cardstock and then adhered to a Chocolate Chip piece that had been cut with Long Rectangle Nestabilities.


The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Gina K. Pure Luxury cardstock folded in half. The Poppy Definition was stamped over the entire front in Antique Linen Distress ink. The edges were sponged with the same color.

A 3 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ piece of Thrift Store paper was sanded, sponged and stitched to a 1/4″ bigger piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock. Another piece of Thrift Store Paper was cut to 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and stitched to a Chocolate chip strip that had been cut with the Scalloped Scallop Die-namics. Ivory May Arts Ribbon was tied around the strip, then the card was assembled.

The sentiment is from the same set. It was stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink , cut with Petite Oval Nestabilities and sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink.

Personal Note:

We got back from Florida last night. We had a wonderful time. The kids saw friends every day and Rick and I enjoyed the beach.


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
