I just love this wonderful background stamp (Penny Black Poppy Pattern) and the pretty detail in it!  When I made my card last week for a challenge on my Facebook stamping group, I created several panels using this stamp and just finished them up!  This card features a brand new set by Simon Says Stamp called Mom Flowers in their Fluttering By series.

 After stamping a script stamp over the background panel in brown, I mounted it onto a layer of brown card stock, then onto a white base card.  I stamped out MOM and the sentiment in brown ink onto a strip of vellum, then attached it with two jeweled brads in green.

For this panel, I taped the four edges of my Bristol Smooth paper then smudged distress oxide inks (Carved Pumpkin/Picked Raspberry/Peeled Paint) directly on the Poppy Pattern stamp!  It was a little tricky but I love the velvety look of the oxides!  I spritzed the stamp with water then stamped it onto my card stock.  I dried with a heat tool, then used a black Sharpie to enhance the centers.

An interesting twist re: my sentiments!  I received Big Word Thanks from Stampendous recently and just LOVE the big words!  But there are no dies so with the help of my friend, Lynne Bunn, I used my Scan N’ Cut machine to create the YOU image, cut out several of them from black card stock and layered them for added dimension!  Voila!!  😀

Finally, I removed the tape which leaves a satisfyingly crisp border, and completed my card!  I like this one best of all the versions I made!
