You are amazing
by Tina Wilstrup


Hi Poppy fans! For todays card I took inspiration in the current situation in Australia. It is absolutely heartbreaking and my heart goes out to everyone affected.

First I ink blended a panel to symbolize the blazing fire and set this aside to dry.

I then ink blended another panel to symbolize the burnt trees. After this panel dried I cut it with the Tall skyline Tree frame.

I cut out the Peek a boo koala and colored it. Then I cut off the frame.

I white heat embossed a sentiment on the cut frame and adhered it to the base panel. I adhered the koala as well. From a piece of white cardstock I cut the Samba heart border and measured where I wanted to score it. I then adhered the left side of the panel to the back of the base.

After adhering the half front, heart cut panel I used my stamping tool to measure where I wanted the sentiments. I didn't want them showing through the cut out hearts.

I added a couple of dots of black Nuvo drops as eyes and nose for the koala.

On the "inside" I adhered a couple of the cut out hearts from the border. Let's all pray for the survival of the unique and endemic animals of Australia.

Sympathy Card

Hello! Marybeth here today with a feminine sympathy card, using :Poppystamps clear stamps and dies. 

I tried not to make it too busy  but wanted to add more than just the background  . 


I stamped the background with: Flower Garden and used : Tim Holtz distressed oxide inks. First I stamped lightly with the ink pad then blended the inks so it would not have any harsh lines.


I kept doing it till I was happy with the results. I am using the MISTI Stamping tool.


The sentiment comes with the background  stamp set: Flower Garden, all linked below.


I die cute the Garden Poppy Sidekick Frame a few times so I would have a few flowers to put around the :Whittle Hearts.

I randomly cut them apart then sanded with a sanding block to smooth the edges, then tucked them around the heart.
