SF2022 - Thankful for You...

Welcome to another Stampin' Friends' Blog Hop.  Today we are sharing projects with the theme 'Thankful for You'.

We are nearing Remembrance Sunday here in the UK so I decided to dig out a stamp set I have not used in a very long while.  Painted Poppies is such a beautiful stamp set and it also reminds me of my late mum as she loved red poppies.

I stamped my card design by creating several masks of the poppies and leaves and arranging them on my card until I was happy with the design.  The images were stamped in Memento ink.  I then used Sweet Sorbet and Evening Evergreen Stampin' Blends to colour them in.  I used the speckled stamp in the set to create the Balmy Blue background.

I love the Very Best Trio Punch as it is so versatile but I used it to simply add some interest to the top of my card this time.

I then used the punch to create a nice top to a little gift bag. 

I used the small detailed poppies stamp to decorate the bottom of the gift bag on the front and back and added the same splash of Balmy Blue.

Here are the two projects together.  The greeting is taken from the gorgeous Soft Seedlings Stamp Set (another firm favourite of mine!)

I hope you like my projects.  I cannot wait to see what my fellow hoppers have created and you can follow the hop by clicking on the links below.

Happy Stampin'
