Poppy Anniversary Cards

Hello!  Poppies are one of my favorite flowers even though they are very short lived in the garden.  I just love their large, papery blooms, the deep black centers, and their funky seed pods.  So when MFT came out with the new Poppy stamp and dies a few months ago, I just had to buy them!  This is what I created:

I love that there is no coloring with this stamp.  Flowers are so difficult to color, I mean, who can possibly duplicate God's amazing coloring skills of a flower?  No one.  So best leave it to Him, and just stamp a single color.  My card is very CAS, just the way I like them.  I did color the center of the flower with Copics, the flower is also popped up a bit using the die and a small dimensional.

 My next card uses pre-printed Kraft paper on the left side and I added some brown flocking to the flower centers.  I didn't like this look as much as coloring the center.  The sentiment in both cards is very old and I don't remember where I got it from.
Have a great day!  Amy


  1. These are both beautiful Amy. Gorgeous colors! And thanks for your comment about bunnies in my yard. I do love them in my yard, although those little stinkers ate my pepper plants one year, and since then I have a small garden patch that is fenced in by itself so it is bunny proof. LOL.

  2. Love the simplicity of both cards, beautifully done Amy!

  3. Both are gorgeous Amy!! I just love the red poppies against the white as well as the layout with the scalloped border and kraft. Gorgeous!!
