Coffee and Poppy Card

Poppy Coffee Card
        Hi friends have you ever jumped to buy something and then let it sit for months without using it? Well in my case I bought this beautiful Poppy Stamps "Iceland Poppy"flower die set  nearly a year ago and this is the first time I am using it!
Coffee and Poppy Card
 The fun thing about this die is that you can make a dimensional yet flat flower[hehe that is a contradiction of sorts but I think my crafty friends will know what I mean!]! I diecut the petals in thick kraft paper and dotted pattern paper and glued the pattern paper diecuts on the kraft diecuts offsetting a little to get a cool margin.

         I am so glad I hoarded this cute cup with a heart  charm as it goes perfectly with the sentiment I used " warm hearts"!
        The woodgrain background was created using a gorgeous stamp from Winnie and Walter. The copper spoon is another craft item I had been hoarding and waiting to use on the right project!

  1. What can I say Sonia other than it's a Poppy so ticks all the right boxes for me and what a beauty it is as well with the dimension.

    1. Thank you Brenda...I struggled with this particular die...we dont have that many poppies in the wild here in India and I had to keep looking at pictures to get the flower right!!

  2. I do that all the time. I buy things because I love them in the store but then when I get them home I don't do anything with them.
    I love the color scheme for this

    1. I now maintain a list in evernote software so that I can keep a track of the items I have yet to use. The number of "not used" is slowly coming down but requires herculean and conscious effort I must say!!

    1. I am somewhat of a frugal crafter like you Sharada and I try to be careful what I buy but when one has been a crafter for years and someone like me who likes to try all kinds of crafts...supplies and materials tend to pile up. I eased the guilt and storage woes by doing a thorough de-clutter recently.Now I am on a mission to put to use every die and stamp that is lying unused!
