And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Krafty Poppies

Hello sketch lovin' friends!   As you are reading this, I am enjoying the paper craft show in Allentown, PA!  You can be sure my pocketbook will be taking a big hit, so I'll probably be sharing some new products with you in the next several posts! Love getting new stamping toys...don't you!

Speaking of new toys, Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps just had a huge release and one of the new sets included many different poppy images...that's the one I grabbed for this week's new sketch at The Sweet Stop!

Creative Nugget:  The kraft tag was created by stamping Friendship Script with Toffee Crunch ink.  The poppies from the Precious Poppies stamp set were stamped in VersaMark and embossed.  Reinkers and a watercolor brush were used to color the poppies...that's Copics on this one!  Black pearls were added to the center of the open poppy.  The little Mini Tag and Sentiment *LOVE these* was cut with the matching Mini Tags and Die Set and attached to the ribbon with button twine.  The card front was made by stitching My Mind's Eye papers to Smokey Gray card stock and adhered to a Kraft card base.  A Scallop Border Die was added along with some button twine and a button to finish the card.

For more inspiration, check out the rest of the Sugar Babies and join us this week over at The Sweet Stop...we love to see your creations!

Very pretty Cathy. Love the stitched tag, the beauiful heat embossed poppies. They look perfect on Kraft.

This card is beautiful! I just love the kraft paper with the red poppies! AND, they look so wonderful embossed!

Those colorful poppies look sewn instead of embossed! What a beautiful look! I had those tiny tag dies in my hand at L&L a few days ago and changed my mind at the last minute and put them back. Regrets....sigh :) Very pretty card!
