I can't wait to show you what I made with this set!
Project # 266 of this year
MFPS June #13
  •  A2 size card 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
  • Welcome Poppies stamp used from Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps - click here to shop
  • Image and sentiment from the Welcome Poppies stamp set
  • Image colored with chalks
  • I stamped the image very lightly with a brown suede ink. I didn't want sharp, black lines, but rather more of a soft feel to this image.
  • It's hard to tell by this photo, but the image background is also lightly chalked with sunrise/sunset shades with a pink / lavender hue.
Project # 267 of this year
MFPS June #14
  • 4" x 4" card 
  • Background dry embossed with Mosaic Tiles folder
  • ELEGANT EDGES p. 21 cut @ 2" with Shadow for sentiment matting
  • Welcome Poppies stamp used for sentiment -  click here to shop
  • Everything inked around the edges with Tea Dye distress ink
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I sure do appreciate all of you who visit me, leave comments, and follow me. Thank you so much! Smiles to you! Don't forget to come back tomorrow for Day 2 of our hop and a featured look at another June release stamp set!

I like what you did with this card and the mosaic embossing folder. I wonder why I never think to make a 4x4 card? I will have to give them another try! TFS.
