Here's a card to satisfy all the stampers out there, the true DIY'ers that like to stamp their own patterned papers and make their own embellishments!
The background is one of my favorite stamps ever. Sadly, the company that made it, Cornish Heritage Farms (CHF), is out of business. I was really hoping someone would buy it and keep producing their awesome backgrounders. Thankfully, they have kept open their gallery.
But, the real star of the card is that poppy image. I was inspired by these gorgeous embellishments by K&Co. to try making my own. So, when I saw this poppy in a frame stamp, also from CHF, it was the perfect image to turn into a 3D embellishment.
I stamped the poppy image three times in Burnt Umber on scrap card stock. I completely colored one of the images, while only coloring the frame and poppy on the second image, and just the frame on the third image.
You can see in the photo above how I used tiny pieces of double stick foam tape to layer the frames and the poppy image. I was lucky enough to have a circle punch that perfectly punched out the inside of the two frames, but had to cut around the outside by hand.
I used my Papier Glaze, that I found at Michaels, on the top frame only and highlighted the poppy stamens with Black Stickles.
Now I'm a little obsessed with making more of these and bought some more frame stamps! (I had to. They were on sale. Ha!)
Thanks for visiting!
