Painted Poppies Thank you Card


Have you ever had a bouquet of flowers that are so beautiful it inspires you to make a card for the person you bought them from?  This very thing happened to me yesterday.  I participated in Rustic Market Days here in Crestview, Florida with a few of my Stampin' UP!® friends.  It was fun and we met some great people.  

Another vendor, Blossom Lane Farms, from Baker, Florida was a participant as well.  They had so many gorgeous cut flowers for sale.  I could not resist.  I had to have some! I purchased some and shared them with the world on my instagram and facebook I am sharing them here.  

Are these flowers gorgeous or what?  I learned a lot about them as well.  For instance, the large flower in the front is an Anemone, the rose-like flowers are Ranunculus...and of course I have some of my favorite Poppies in there too!  

I came home for a while while my Stampin' UP! Friends worked the booth...we all took turns and shared the booth fee, customers, and contacts made.  While I was home I made a quick, but super pretty thank you card using Simple Stamping.

What is Simple Stamping you ask?  It is using just paper/card stock, stamps, and ink.  I thought the beautiful watercolor images on this sheet of Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper 
was perfect for this card. 

I stamped the "Thank You" sentiment from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set six times onto the lower 2/3 of the Designer Series Paper to create a column of "Thank You" down the center.  Sometimes one Thank You just isn't enough.  

Then I added to my simple stamping card by tying a a big bow at the top of the card using the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  Then under the center of the bow I added a Mini Stampin' Dimensional to pop the bow up a little bit and also hold it in place. 

I appreciate you being a part of my Stampin' Journey!

I live & love to inspire you!
