MFTWSC116- {miss you Poppies}

Hello! Glad to see you back here. I have more Poppies to share today. I LOVE this set. I think you all do, too. I keep seeing these pretty flowers popping up all over blogland in the the SCS gallery. I also know you LOVE the new Blueprints 1 Die-namics.

 I used both of these sets on today's Wed. Stamp Club sketch card.  I adore that the Pretty Poppies stamp set has a set of coordinating Die-namics, but I  really wanted to just let the stamps shine today.  Aside from the crochet trim and white ink I used, everything on this card is from MFT! 

I left off the designer paper and made my own by stamping Darling Dots in white craft ink onto Electric Red card stock. I cut out the scalloped rectangle from Blueprints 1 Die-namics and stamped the beautiful poppy poem in kraft ink onto Kraft card stock. The tone on tone stamping makes me happy. 

Here is a close up of the flowers. Did you see that MFT now has a Smooth White card stock. I love Sweet Tooth, but sometimes I just wasn't able to get the crisp stamping with my solid stamps when I used it. So, Kim found some amazing smooth card stock and the MFT and solid stamps are a match made in heaven. The flowers were stamped with Electric Red ink and Used a mix of Jellybean Green and Sour Apple Premium dye inks to stamp the stems and leaves. I used Hot Fudge cs to mat the skinny rectangle. 

I used circle stax 1 Die-namics to cut a small circle that nestled right on the small doily  from Mini Doily Circles Die-namics.  You'll notice all my edges are a bit distressed with ink.....that's MFT's Kraft ink. It works beautifully for inking edges of all your cardstock to give them that POP!

I also stamped up the inside panel. The inks look soooo pretty on Kraft card stock, too.  I've just stamped along the bottom, leaving lots of room for a friendly note. 

Here is this week's sketch.
