ATSM Sketch!

I was so excited to see a sketch challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More this week!  I just love having a sketch to start with.  It really gives a great place to start when you have stampers block...which I seem to be having plenty of lately!  Here is our sketch for the week:
Very clean and simple!  I wanted to try out this new stamp, Pleasant Poppies, that I just got in the mail this week. I have had my eye on it since we got our new catalog back in May but have just kept pushing it to the back of my wish list.  Now that spring and summer are quickly approaching, I knew I NEEDED to get it. :)
I stamped the poppies on the newsprint DSP in Black StazOn and then used my blender pen to color them in.  I used a few rhinestones because I am obsessed with bling and thought the sentiment needed a few there at the bottom as well. :)


  1. Very pretty!! I love the look of the stamp on the text background. Now I wish I had ordered this on my last order...maybe my next one!

  2. Beautiful stamp and the background looks great too!

  3. Oh my goodness Shana, I love how your poppy card turned out. I keep wondering if I should buy that or not myself. I so love it everytime I see it - especially here - I just might have to break down and add it to my next order. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Lovely card Shana. The poppies go perfectly against the background.
