Amazing You!
by Rachel Duong


Hi friends, it's Rachel! I'm here with a new Poppystamps challenge. The theme is "Old School". Create a project using at least one Poppystamps die. Link it up and one lucky random winner will receive a prize. Florals are timeless and classic, so I am sharing a themed card using the beautiful "Perfect Posies Bouquet" die.


To create this card I die cut the Poppystamps "Perfect Posies Bouquet" and the "Teardrop Butterflies" dies in a sturdy white cardstock. I die cut the butterflies again using the Memory Box "Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad". Next I blended blue, green and teal distress ink over the bouquet. For dimensional effects, I doubled up some of the blossoms. For sparkle, I applied glitter glue to the blossom centers and petals. I chose a deep blue card base from the Memory Box "Ocean Blue" collection. A hot foil sentiment from the "Modest Banner Greetings" set adds a fresh silver accent. White splatters fill in empty space. Finally, an "Old School" sheer, organza ribbon finishes the card.


These are some of the supplies I used. 


Do you use organza ribbon on your cards? I remember the first time I was introduced to cardmaking, organza ribbon was often used. It is so delicate, soft and pretty enhancing many styles of cards.


I hope you get a chance to take part in this challenge. And by the way, with the start of a new school year, why not give your "Old School" card to a favorite teacher to tell them how amazing they are?! Have fun and don't forget to link your card up.

Take card and happy crafting~

Hi Rachel, I love this !! it is so pretty and the colours are soft and beautiful, the organza ribbon finishes this card off gorgeously. I must admit I used to put organza bows on my card a long time ago, but I haven't used them in ages, but after seeing your pretty card, I will be using them again, thank you for opening my eyes.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
