Just Saying Hello..


Good morning friends and visitors.. My day over on Poppystamps blog today..


my favourite flowers are Poppies! red or any colour, love the delicate petals on these flowers..I have tried to capture this on these petals..using Poppystamps "Blooming Poppy die"



Hope you do not think these Poppies  look messy!! lol.. to me that`s  how our Poppies  look in the UK..
I normally use a crepe paper. you have to be careful as this is not colour fast with water..
OK this is the product I have used..had in my stash for years..Good old Coffee Filters!!! bet your thinking I`ve gone mad!!!  here is how..







Leave the coffee filters as they are double, ink with a blending tool, I used distress "fired brick"  ink both side.























Spray with plenty of water and dry with a heat tool.. Next cut out just the petals from Poppystamps. Blooming Poppy die.
















This is how I add shape.. moulding mat and ball tool..I separated the two of each from the coffee filter..top are ones as they have been cut..bottom petals have been shaped, it is a strong paper even when wet..










 One set of petals on the left..right side flower made ..I dipped just the  centre of the petal in the glue.. adhered as shown..before you add the last bottom petal, glue the black stamen in.
I also added some glossy accents to the back, gave more stability to the flower.








Close up of Blooming Poppies on dark green stems.. Gental Leaf Collage for the background, shaded with distress ink Tumbled Glass, dot of green are from Poppystamps New "Studio Blotter" CL449 clear stamps, infilled with "Heart Screen" die cuts.
Just Saying from "Sentiment Of Hello" CL451 stamps with "Little Luxe Hello die cut in white card shadowed with green card.


Hope you like my take on Poppy flowers..
Thank you for stopping by Pam x..

You're amazing with the poppies! What a fantastic idea to use coffee filters, especially because most of us have them on hand. Another idea to try! This card is exceptionally beautiful all over.
