I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the new
ROW OF POPPIES die no. 99137:
The other day I started cutting out lots of them in a variety of papers.
Then I cut other dies to coordinate with them:
STITCHED CLOUDS no. 30053
and MINI PERFECT PATCHES no. 99162
and BEADED BACKGROUND no. 99132.
The next step was to get some blank cards
and start playing around with various combinations.
At that point I knew I needed to add some stencil backgrounds
for a few of the poppies:
SPRINKLE DOTS no. 88597.
(For one card I used HEART CONFETTI no. 88588
from the 2015 winter collection which seems to be no longer in the catalog.
You could easily substitute one of the other hearts stencils.)
Once I had some cards made, I started looking through
the new stamps to find suitable sentiments. What I realized
at that point was that the months of the year from
WELL PLANNED CL5155 would be perfect!
And here are the finished cards for eight of the months!
(I still have to finish June, August, September, and December
for a complete set.)
A set of these with stamped envelopes
would make a great Christmas gift.
Now I just need to figure out how
to make a little box for them all!
