Have a Beautiful Day

Happy New Year! This is the first thing I've stamped for this new year. I am using this Poppies stamp from Sweet Stamps. I have a bunch of pre-cut notecard blanks that I recently found so it was perfect to use up.

 I stamped the poppies using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in using various colors of Copic markers. Some of the poppies I randomly left tiny white spaces and some are all filled in and shaded. I matted the image onto the black cardstock to make it pop. I used 3D tape to give the cards some dimension.

I also stamped the poppies onto the front of the envelopes. I just wanted to leave them black and white.

A smart idea for notelets, they would be great for most occasions and good to have on hand. Thanks for sharing on Come and Get It challenges, Carol DT

First, kudos on using up some left overs like the card blanks! Somehow that always makes them better, eh?! I do like the black mat layer and the 3D adds even more interest and a sense of elegance. Nicely done! Thank you for sharing your project and creativity at 613 Ave C!

These are just perfect for quick notes! Love the "no fuss" simplicity of the design! I need something like this for the times The Hubster says, "I didn't know I had to ask you to make a card. Don't you just do it automatically when we get invited out?" Great job! Thanks for sharing these with us here at 613 Avenue Create!
