When I saw this stamp set, one of my most favorite photos that I’ve ever taken popped into mind, and I knew I had to create something with the photo.

First, I started off by printing my photo to almost fill one side of my TN.  I printed it off, and trimmed it to about 4 1/4 x 7 1/2 in.  I adhered the photo to the page.  Next, I grabbed a piece of Neenah solar white card stock, and I stamped the outline images of the 2 big flowers all over creating my own pattern paper.  I trimmed it to about 5 x 8 in, and adhered it to the right side of my TN.

I grabbed another piece of white cardstock, and I started stamping the poppies using the Altenew inks in the Red Sunset Mini Cube set.  I really love the Crimson red ink!  On some of the flowers, I just double stamped the crimson on the next layer, and I love the subtle look it gives.  I also stamped a few of the leaves out in one of the inks in the Altenew Green Meadows mini cube set.  Once I finished stamping, I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images.

BAF Poppy Layering Guide I made a little journaling tag from craft cardstock, and I used my typewriter to type a little journaling.  I added the tag, a few flowers, and a couple of the small leaves to my TN.

I wanted a sentiment, so I used the “you are bloomin’ gorgeous” sentiment from the stamp set, and heat embossed it in white on black cardstock.  I trimmed it out, and adhered it on top of the photo.

To finish my TN spread off, I added some ribbon and twine to the tag, I added some washi tape to the photo, and I added some gold splatter and a heart paper clip.  I really love how my project turned out!

  1. I can see a) why this stamp set reminded you of this photo and b) why it’s one of your favorites! What a fantastic picture. And your color matching is impeccable: the poppies perfectly offset the red in the girls’ hangboks. (Am I remembering that word correctly? Apologies if I messed that up.) Thanks for sharing such a lovely layout; this makes me smile.
