Yellow Poppy

Hi all, Kirstynn here with another card for you.
Let's jump right in! I started by using the new Poppy Posy set from the summer release. I pulled out the stencils that go with this set and started blending. I used Dand-D-Lion,  Peachy Keen, Kiss Me Red, Olive Branch, In Your Face Orange, and Evergreen Hybrid inks for the leaves and the florals.
I tend to use the darker colors toward the canter of the flowers and I use different amounts of ink to create different depths of color. Look at how absolutely beautiful just the ink blending turned out! 
Once I had all the stenciling down, I used the outline image to stamp over the florals. I repeated this process two more times. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. 
At this point I was trying to find a big and bold sentiment. So I used the Essential Birthday Sentiment Stamps I stamped this on a light coral colored cardstock and trimmed that down. At this point I decided I needed something for the background so used the Quilted Plaid Coverplate die to created some texture in a 4 inch by 5 1/4 inch white panel. 
When I had all of my pieces made and cut out, I started to assemble them on my card in a way that framed the sentiment. This sometimes takes a minute to get right. I usually end up adjusting the pieces at least three times before I get it in a way that I like.
Once I had everything where I wanted it, I glued it down using liquid adhesive and foam tape. And lastly I added some rose gold sequins. 
I hope this is inspiring for you! 
Happy Crafting!
