Field Poppies

Ok, I have been way too absent this summer! I am going to have to do better... so here is a project I whipped up this morning. I have gotten a lot of new rubber lately and sometimes when that happens, I get a little overwhelmed and I don't MAKE anything. I have also been working on projects that I can't post yet...stuff for swaps and blog hops and UStampWithDawnandFriends.... BTW the next UStamp event started today!! Woo-hoo! And since I get to see them all before they go live, I have to tell you there is a lot of great stuff going to be shared :)

Alrighty then! Time to get back to this project. I earned the stamps used here doin some stampin stuff and it just came in the mail on Tuesday and I just couldn't wait to play with these 2 sets.

I even used the new Simply Scored tool that will be available on Sept. 1st. LOVE IT! It is so much nicer than the Scor-Pal, which I own but rarely use since it does not have score lines every 1/8"! I created a frame around the flowers by scoring at 5/8"  all the way around, then stamped the polka dots from Borderlines around the edge. I did the same for the inside.
  • Stamps: Field Flowers, Borderlines
  • Paper: Calypso Coral, Naturals White
  • Ink: Calypso Coral, Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso
  • Other: Simply Scored, Stampin' Dimensionals
 Don't you love how the Calypso Coral and Poppy Parade coordinate so well?! And then I just had to make a treat to go with this...


A little Candy Wrapper with a belly band!

Don't you just love it?! I sure do. Now I have to figure out who gets this little duo :)

How very clever to score and stamp the margin! You're taking your outlining to a new level, girl!
