and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Plenty of Poppies

Welcome to Day #3 of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps April Release Features!  If you like poppies. you'll want to add today's featured stamp sets to your wish list because there are plenty of poppies to use for any occasion throughout the year.
Today's features are:
Precious Poppies and Poppy Background



  • Stamp set includes 3 images and 17 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 8" x 6"
  • The large group of poppies measures approximately 4 1/2" x 3 1/8"
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Stamp set is priced at $26




  • Includes 1 large image
  • Measures approximately 3 3/4" x 3 3/4"
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Stamp set is priced at $15


Both of these wonderful sets were used on my sample:


Creative Nugget:  The large Poppy Background was stamped randomly on the Solar Crest card front.  Several blocks from the center of a Cheery Lynn Lattice die were cut away and a red and white panel was traced to fit where the blocks had been removed. The single poppy image from the Precious Poppies stamp set was colored with Copic Markers and cut out so it could be popped up on the center of the card.  The sentiment was stamped on one of the Mini Tag Dies...*love these*...and attached to the bow with Baker's Twine.

For another sample using these two sets click HERE!

While I tend to gravitate toward these colors for the poppies, you will see more beautiful combinations as you hop along to the blogs of the other talented Design Team members.  Just click on the thumbnails below to complete the hop!

Be sure to leave a comment on each of the blogs along your journey because we're giving away both of these beautiful sets to one lucky commenter!
