Summer Blooms for Penny Black and More July Challenge

Good morning everyone and Happy Sunday! Hope you are all doing well!

We have a new challenge for you over at Penny Black and More. This month our theme is

"Summer Blooms".


For my card today I used the super adorable stamp "Poppy field" from penny black of course. I just love this stamp and thought it would be perfect to use, but now I have to admit I am not sure if Poppies actually bloom in summer....Can you tell I don't know a whole lot about flowers??


I stamped the image on sky blue card stock, then colored it using my faber castell polychomos. Cut it out using a circle nestabilities shape and my big kick, and then matted it onto a scallop circle nestabilities shape. This was then adhered to the designer paper (from a DCWV stack which I got at Joann's a long time ago), then adhered it to my white card front. I did some sewing along the designer paper edges.

The sentiment is from a clear Penny Black set (Critter party). I repeatedly stamped it on a white strip of cardstock, then stamped it once again and cut it out using a Notables shapeology die from Whimsy Stamps. This was then adhered to the strip of card stock with dimensionals and I added some tiny pearls on each side of the shape. To finish it off I added a little bow with a sticky dot.

And that's about it, I hope you liked my card.

Plus there are some amazing prizes up for grabs again, but you can't win if you don't play. You don't have to use a Penny Black stamp either, all we ask that your main image is a STAMPED image, it doesn't matter what brand.

Thanks for stopping by!

Morning Ellie

Poppies are a typical summer flower, so many out at the moment and I love the vibrancy of them on our pretty card. And the gingham ribbon coordinated beautifully.

Hope you have a lovely Sunday.
