Flowers, flowers and more flowers ...........

Happy Bank Holiday weekend .......

And what a lovely weekend we're having, the weather is glorious!  Just in time for the start of this years IOM TT Races.  
Yes, it's that time of year when the island welcomes visitors from all over the world, and the roar of motorbikes can be heard everywhere ...... we've even got the funfair coming back this year!  It's going to be a busy couple of weeks.

Did you get to see Lucy on Wednesday?  
She was back on TV with the gorgeous new range of Sweet Poppy stamps ..... Beautiful Botanicals.  Everyone loves flowers, and I've been sharing a few of my favourites over the last couple of posts.
So far I've used each of the stamps on their own for easy Clean and Simple (CAS) cards through to pretty all over designs.  But what if, you can't choose a favourite, you just want them all.  
Then, you can't make up your mind which one to use first so ......... why not use more than one on your cards, they all look so pretty together

This is a 7x7 inch finished card, and I stamped a whole bunch of the flowers to cover the front

and coloured them using Brush Markers

I added a simple foiled, die cut sentiment to finish off.

Colouring not your thing, then don't .......

Simply colour a background and then stamp the images using black ink

Coloured panels painted freehand, using Distress Oxide inks mixed with water, onto watercolour cardstock.

I then used a little bit of masking tape around the edge of each panel before stamping the flowers 

To finish, I added a few splatters of gold ink 

and a sentiment on the bottom

If you love these new stamps, this is just the first release.  There will be more coming over the next few months ...... watch this space!

Thanks for popping by ...... enjoy the rest of your weekend.
I'm off to enjoy the sunshine, and get the BBQ ready for later.   

Cheerio until next time .......

Lots of beautiful flowers here, Linda! Love how you've colored in the bright colors on the first card and the watercolor backgrounds with the simple stamping on the second, along with the sentiment makes an awesome card.
