I can’t believe it’s Thursday already this week just flew by. Since it’s Thursday that means it’s time to post my project for LSS (Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff) for this week I choose to work with the beautiful oriental poppy stamp.

LO bee 5.5

Poppies are one of my favorite flowers. I have always had them in our garden in each house we lived in. Awwww isn’t my little guy cute in his bee outfit? With having a boy I really don’t have a lot of opportunity to use flowers on my LO’s so when I see an opportunity I seize it. What could be more perfect than this picture to use with flowers. To make this LO I first printed the Poppy stamp in 3 different sizes. I printed them out on a thin velum paper because it reminded me of that paper like quality that these flowers posses. After printing I colored them using Bic permanent markers (this was the first time I used just these markers entirely for coloring) I usually like to mix things when coloring. I loved the way they worked on the velum paper, the colors were clear and vibrant. After coloring all the images I then cut out each one and assembled it on my LO to see how I wanted my picture positioned. From there I added some stitching,paper embelishments and some journaling around the edges of the flowers. This stamp is a definite must have in your collection and for only a dollar how can you go wrong. If you spend just $5 dollars you will also receive a FREE stamp of your choice. Make sure you stop by Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff and grab some awesome stamps to use with you LO’s and cards well the deals just keep getting better because we are also still searching for the freebie this week. You know the drill stop on over to the other DT members blog and see their creations, somewhere among them you can snag a FREE stamp.
