A Poppy Thank You

I got some new stamps from my lovely friend Pat earlier in the week and I got a chance to have a play with them today.

The inspiration for this card is from a video I saw by the very talented Lindsey, The Frugal Crafter, she was drawing and colouring on an old book page (link here). I thought I would give it a go but as I don't have any old books (a trip to the local charity shop should fix that), I used some newsprint DSP from Stampin' Up! I used my Inktense pencils to colour the poppy, I wanted it nice and bold to stand out.

Thanks for looking, Lorry :o) xx

Pattern Papers: Newsprint from Stampin' Up! Story Teller from Crate Paper and Ad Lib by Bo Bunny. I also used some tracing paper from Wilkinsons.
Stamps: Simply Sketched and Hardwood from Stampin' Up!
Punches: Notebook by Fiskars. 
Embellishment: Hemp Twine from Stampin' Up!


  1. It turned out great! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Fab card! Love the overstamping on book print, will have to try it.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, it means a lot to me.
