Hello, hey! I’m using the end of the month to do some catching up on blog posts, and that includes today’s card and stamp set! I’m sharing a card made using the Altenew Poppy Arrangement stamp set and the lovely Garden Trellis Cover Die.

This stamp set was originally a promotional set that was free with other purchases, and is now available in the shop for direct purchase.
Poppy Arrangement is one of my favorite kind of stamp sets – outline images with a variety of individual blooms and leaves plus another complete arrangement.
I began by stamping the poppy blooms and a selection of leaves onto Neenah Solar White Classic Crest cardstock, with Obsidian Pigment Ink and heat setting with clear embossing powder.
I colored the flowers with the Red Sunset family of Altenew Artist markers, using the 3 lightest shades for one flower and the 3 darkest shades for the other.
I used the Tropical Forest Marker set for some of the leaves and the Green Fields set for other leaves. Then I used my small fine tip scissors to fussy cut all the shapes. (A mentally soothing task I enjoy). The set does have a matching Die Set, but I don’t have it.
I stamped two of the sentiments included in the stamp set onto grey cardstock with Obsidian Pigment ink and heat set with clear embossing powder before trimming to narrow strips.
I die cut the background from white cardstock using the Garden Trellis Cover Die, and trimmed it wonkily before adhering it to a soft grey cardstock panel. Then I arranged the colored images in a cluster on the bottom and used strong liquid adhesive to adhere everything.
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
