Silver poppies!

Hello everyone!

You know when you have this idea in your head that you just can’t relax until you try it? Well…this is what happened to me today! I had this gorgeous Penny Black stamp set sitting on my desk and as I was looking through my stash I knocked over my box of Starry Colors! And this is when it came to me that I had to create this sympathy card! And as I was looking for a gray patterned paper and I couldn’t find any to match my card…I had this crazy idea to use Distress Stains …which I have to admit I hardly ever use! (Don’t get me wrong, the Distress Stains are fine, it’s just I haven’t found the best way for me to use them, so the few that I got have been staying in my drawer for about 2 years now!). To cut the long story short, I decided to get out of my comfort zone and create a “different” card! I don’t know about you but I really like the outcome!

Supplies used:

  • Kraft Cardstock paper ā€“ white
  • The Works -Black craft card 200gsm
  • Gansai Tambi – Starry Colors – white gold No906
  • Distress Stain: Weathered wood
  • Penny Black – Blooming Garden stamp set
  • Avery Elle – With Sympathy dies
  • Sizzix Big Shot Machine
  • Versamark Ink
  • Wow! Metallic Silver Regular embossing powder
  • Heat tool
  • Paper trimmer
  • Waterbrush
  • Double sided tape

  1. Beautiful, perfect card for a sad occasion. Thank you for joining us at Sweet Stampin’ this week.

    1. Happy that I reminded you to use your supplies!We often forget what we have as we get new stuff,don’t we? To be honest,when I bought my Distress stains I only bought a few (because they were cheaper) and I thought I would use them as sprays together with the rest of the ink sprays I have but I never got to change their bottles etc.Now I think it maybe a better idea to use them as watercolors. We’ll see…I just need to find a way to use them cause they are no good living in my drawer! šŸ˜›
      Have a good day!And I hope to see you again in the near future! šŸ™‚
