Sometimes I like to use a large array of colors and other times I like to use various shades of the same color. This fun card made of shades of blue is just fabulous!!!
This card is just stamps, ink, and paper! Simple and fabulous! You could pick any color combination you would like for this same look! I used Blueberry Bushel & Seaside Spray!
First, I started with a Seaside Spray card base and stamped the poppies in the lower left corner. These were stamped in Blueberry Bushel Ink and I staggered them for a more natural garden look! Then I stamped the cluster of poppies in Memento Black Ink onto a strip of Whisper White. This image is just a bit too small to be stamped once so I did it twice; hanging off either end. It’s like 3/4 of the image stamped on the left and right. Next, I stamped the splotchy image in Seaside Spray and Blueberry Bushel. For the blueberry, you may want to stamp off once to lighten the color a bit and not have it over power the poppies. Then I layered this piece onto a piece of Blueberry Bushel and added it to the card front. All of these images are from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set!
For the greeting, I stamped it in Memento Black Ink just below the poppies. This area is big enough to use just about any greeting and flowers are perfect for any occasion. I used the stamp from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set. This set is one of my go-to’s lately!
For the inside of the card, I added a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped a few poppies in Blueberry Bushel in the corner! Don’t forget that you can stamp a few poppies on your envelope as well! 🙂
