Another flower not just any flower It's a Poppy


This is such a gorgeous colour is it Only Orange?  I think it is and I have a confession.... I have all of the Stampin' Up! ink pads (well you have to have them all) and I have never used this colour.... well today is the day and what do you think the inside stamens are Rich Razzleberry or Elegant Eggplant with a hint of Rose Red?

they were all just beginning to open out so I couldn't resist taking some pictures of them..


So these are the cards I made from this inspiration....

Greenhouse Garden was my instant first choice and I think it turned out okay, I don't think I would ever have thought to use Only Orange but I actually quite like it now!  Surprises happen every day!!

So the second choice was not this to start with ... but then I looked up on the shelf and thought "mmm I haven't used this stamp set yet" (don't tell but I have a few like that) .... So that's the one I used it's called Serene Snowflakes, which is probably why you wouldn't think to use it in May but I think it looks okay for "May"
So this just shows when you look around the place you live there will almost always be some inspiration and if not ... CASE a few cards or projects from the galleries at ILWS (in love with stamping) and SCS (splitcoast stampers)

.........Until tomorrow..... be crafty

Orange would be one of the last colours that I would choose for any project. I LOVE these cards with these colours.
This is a challenge I should take. Use a colour that I would least use and find a way to use it.
Again beautiful cards.
