5 days/5 looks/5 cards- card 1

Hello friends! I have decided to do a little series of cards showing off one single beautiful stamp set and show you just a couple different ways to create cards that are similar but different. Now I'm going to show a couple various ways to use the stamps, and a each card will have different colors, but this won't be each day a new technique, I'm just showing some fun cards here. I am using a Hero Arts stamp here.

Card One-  this dramatic combo really makes me happy! I love the red and black, and the touches of green and gold are just right to keep it from being too over the top.
I used a red spray mister to color the cardstock after I stamped the poppies on cream cardstock. I then restamped them on another cream cardstock, and sprayed that with gold and sunflower spray mist. I let that dry and then used watercolor pencils to color in the green stems, and fussy cut the flowers from the red misted piece.


 For the background card, I used Girls Paperie ( green ) and Pink Paislee ( houndstooth ) against each other. I tied a piece of my almost black etsy ribbon ( my etsy store is linked at the right sidebar)  around the middle then added on a bit of red cardstock mat. I added a couple red buttons looped with twine and some pretty light lime gems to accent the flowers and buttons. My sentiment is from another Hero Arts stamp set. and I tied on another button with more of my almost black crinkled ribbon at the bottom of the flowers.


hope you enjoyed my card today!

This is one of your most gorgeous cards ever! It reminds me of my trip to Italy where I fell in love with poppys. I love, love, love it!
Can't wait to see what else you have to show us.

Wow, this card is amazing. The red is so vivid it just pops off the paper. I also love the sentiment, because it really is the little things that matter most!
