Hello everyone and welcome to the UWF Poppy Field Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing a stamp set collaboration between Altenew and Ellen Huton. If you’ve arrived here from the talented Kittie Caracciolo blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!
Take a look at my layout:
Say hello to my new niece Savannah!! I wanted to showcase her today along with the new Poppy Field Stamp set because both of them are beautiful.
I used Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Collection, Altenew Evergreen Ink, Altenew Jet Black Ink, Altenew Cosmic Berry Ink, Altenew Puffy Heart Ink, Altenew Warm Sunshine Ink, Altenew Caramel Toffee Ink along with Poppy Field Stamp and Die Set.
Here’s how to create this page:
I decided on which photo I wanted to use and converted into black and white.
Then I cut a piece of cardstock a little bit bigger then the photo so that it peeks out from behind the photo.
Using the edge of the scissors, rub it over the edge to create a distress look. Using the bone folder, bend the edges.
Cut two strips of the same cardstock and sew the strips the bottom of the layout.
Using the photo and the background cardstock as a guide, use Altenew Evergreen Ink to create some watercolor platters on the layout.
Once that dries, adhere the cardstock and photo to the layout.
Stamp the flowers using coordinating inks, die cut them out and adhere them to the base of the photo.
Next, add different types of embellishments that coordinate with the layout.
To stamp the sentiment, use the Memory MISTI so that the placement is perfect.
Let’s take another look:

Beautiful layout, Kymona. I love particularly how you thought to color the poppies in such unique colors. I’ve now seen it a few times in the hop, but it still surprises and delights me. Really lovely layout. xo

Beautiful scrapbook page.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful lay out. I’ve been doing cards for church to give encouragement. I used to scrapbook with my mother but when she died almost three years ago I haven’t been able to scrapbook. It brings back many memories. I am just now trying to get back into the spirit. Your lay out has inspired me. Thx
