Hello everyone: I have several stamp sets that are brand, spanking new that are begging for some ink, this one from Power Poppy is one of them.

This stamp set is called Poppies and the images are beautiful.
I stamped this one on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper with Versafine ink and clear heat embossed it then, colored it with SU markers, the sentiment is from a set that has no name, it's old, so I probably disposed of the package a long time ago.  I struggled a bit with adding some embellishments, the card I CASE'd, from Stacy Morgan is this one below, I had a problem with the bow, my ribbon was not very pliable and I should have cut my image a bit smaller so I could add a bit of a border at the bottom, that's why I added the ribbon on the side.  

Poppies Stamp Set - Power Poppy by Marcella Hawley

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The border is from a retired SU set called "Delicate Details", the sentiment and flower are from the "Poppies" stamp set.

I want to play with the following challenges.

I turned the sketch on the Vertical.
Thank you for stopping by today.


  1. Awww! You have this stamp set? I love it! Neglected to pick it up over the years I own so much that doesn't get inked often. It's all very organized however :) Beautiful work this layout too is so pretty for your vase of poppies!

  2. It's very pretty, Maria! I love the flowers, and the ribbon treatment is perfect!

  3. WOW ... just beautiful inside & out! Thanks so much for joining in the fun at our Double D ‘Spring’ challenge! Good Luck and we hope you’ll come back often.

  4. Pretty Plus !! I love your ribbon detail ! I think I like it better than putting it in front . It would distract from your pretty Poppies ! I do not think I have ever seen ribbon done like that !! LOVE IT !

  5. Ohhhh, these poppies are so beautiful! I love your ribbon detail because you know I like cards that are easily mailable. The sentiment detail is perfect with the image. You're on fire, Maria!
