From background to focal point!


Pleasant Poppies is a brand new background stamp from the 2012-2013 Stampin' Up Catalogue. And it's available in clear mount!

I decided to make it a focal point and to use some of the new 2012-2013 In-Colours: Midnight Muse and Summer Starfruit. Here's what I came up with for my first try with this stamp:



I used some other brand new products on this. See the greeting stamped on the cool-looking curvy banner? It's from another brand new set, Bitty Banners and the shape is from the brand new Bitty Banners Framelits. And the designer paper is from Comfort Cafe DSP pack.

There are many more possibilites for using this wonderful background stamp. Check back to see my next projects. I will be teaching a class on Tuesday, July 3 at the Fibre Expressions Quilt Shop and plan on doing at least one project with this stamp.
