Wild Poppies (and an Enabling Alert!!!)

*Let me preface this by saying that NO ONE is paying me for this post (although, I'm open for offers! LOL). I just like the stuff, and want to share!*

I just got my Papertrey goodies on Saturday, and I had a chance to play over the weekend while Dave was occupying Wyatt outside. For this card, I recycled another layout that I used for a previous AAS card. I like the large tilted panel!
I used the Polka Dot Basics set for the Plum layer, and the new Linen Vellum for the tilted piece. I spritzed the whole thing with a Cocoa marker, but the part that I like the best is my new Flower Soft! Check it out...
Take a look at the "fluff" in the center of the flowers. That is the Lemon Flower Soft that I glued (with my regular Crystal Effects) to the centers to look like a "polleny" stamen. I saw it first at CHA, and fell in love with it! Then, when I noticed (on a SCS banner ad) that Flourishes was carrying it, I had to have some! I think it's SO cool, and there are so many uses this that us stampers could REALLY take advange of! Here's the display from CHA...
This company actually sells these pre-printed images that you sort of "fill in" with the Flower Soft. Well, obviously, WE already HAVE tons of images - we just need to STAMP them!!! You can also see in this picture the little tubs that the different colors come in. They have mixed colors and solid colors (that's what I bought). Think of the landscape images we can create!

Lastly, some more deets... I used PTI's Dark Chocolate, Plum Pudding, and Lavender Moon ink, as well as Palette's Landscape. The buttons are SU and Chatterbox, and the ribbon is PTI. I used White Craft to stamp the polka dots.
Well, that's about it! I hope that you think it's as cool as I do! Now, I'm off to go get some school in with Wyatt. Have a great day!!!

  3. This is one seriously awesome card!! I love how you've used the Flower Soft!

  4. Beautiful card Kirsten. My mum has some flower soft but never really uses it. Maybe I need to send her to your blog to get her inspired!
