UWF Poppy Field Blog Hop

Poppy Field Stamp Set

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:

Poppy Field Stamp Set

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.

 

Poppy Field Stamp SetI 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.

Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Collection

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.

  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. Your layout is Perfection!! But more important is that beautiful little girl Savannah💖💕💖😊!!! Such a beautiful layout to celebrate her arrival! I love your Poppies, they are such a great addition to this!😍

  4. I love This! At first I thought you made them magnets or push pins. Afteff reading your article, i realized you attached them. How beautiful. And they really showcase your beautiful niece.
