Poppy and Bee

Happy Friday! It's my turn this Friday to post to the Just for Fun Rubber Stamps blog, and I created a CAS card for my post, using the beautiful stamp "Gathering Pollen". I love poppies and knew I had to have this one, as I don't have a big collection of Poppy stamps.

The frame is not part of the stamp, it was one more recently released stamp from JFF, and I thought it would work really well with this stamp. The frame was stamped first, then I stamped the flower to fit the bloom inside the frame. The bloom was stamped again onto xpress it blending card and colored with copic markers, then fussy cut. I adhered it then with pop up tape, but it's  hard to see in the photo. I colored the inside of the frame using a copic marker. The red and white striped paper is vellum paper. I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of card stock and then attached to my card.The only embellishment is glitter.
