Joy of Sets - January 2020

 Thanks so Much for stopping by!

For those who are stopping for the first time, 
my name is Annette Ball welcome to 
Stampin' with the Bees.  

Today I am participating in a Blog Hop 

and the Theme is Something New.
Well with the Brand New Mini Catalogue that was easy...or was it!!  I have another Painted Poppy Card for you today!!
I just cannot get enough of this gorgeous bundle!!

Today I embossed the flowers using Versamark, Black Embossing Powder and my heat gun.
Then I water coloured the flowers with Flirty Flamingo and the balance of the card Granny Apple Green.  Then I stamped  the stems using the smaller stem with the
Timeless Tulips stamp set and the leaves from painted poppies then using my Aqua painter I washed the colour around to fill in the leaves. 

The sentiment is from Peaceful Moments..I just Love these fonts!! And I cut it out using the smaller label from Painted Poppies layering it with one of the floral dies from Peaceful Moments and a little silver thread and some dimensionals

And I glued an extra poppy on the inside.  I can't have a naked inside!!

I really hope you enjoyed my card today!
Everything I used is available at my online store.  If you care Canadian just click on the Canadian flag to get there.
