Variety Poppy Cards with Penny Black Stamp by Sharen Grimsley

Isn't it amazing how one stamp can be made to look so different?! 

"Poppy Cards" 
by Sharen Grimsley

  All of these cards were made using the same 
"Poppy Poem" stamp by Penny Black! 

The photos above were shaded using
COPIC markers.

Decorating Chalks are another method that can be used to color these images!

Sharen used a gray color to smudge around the outside of her poppies to give them a little dimension.  

She stamped and shaded two images. She then "fussy cut" one image and layered it on top of the second, using 1/16" pop dots.

Various Martha Stewart Edge punches were used to decorate the outer edges of these cards.

Little Yellow Bicycle "Just Because" Layout by Lauren Nicholson

Another great two page layout using 
Little Yellow Bicycle's "Just Because" line!

"Just Because"
by Lauren Nicholson

Several different techniques are used
on this layout!  

Small pennants of various sizes were cut out of patterned paper and "stitched" together using a black Copic Multiliner!

Paper flowers were made by cutting spirals out of Bazzill cardstock, then rolled, & glued together.  They were topped off by placing small blue pearls in the center.
