A Trio of Poppies from Penny Black

I will say it again .. Penny Black has some of the most beautiful floral stamps ever!  I love their poppy stamps!

40-311 Poppy Trio;  51-006 Flutters;  51-029 Interlocking
 
I stamped and embossed the Poppy Trio image and colored it with Copic Markers.  Next, I fussy cut the flowers and mounted them with foam tape onto a circle diecut.  The butterfly was added to draw your eye upward to the flowers.  This grouping was then placed on the card base layered with the Interlocking diecut. 

When the Interlocking die became available, my first thought was how perfect that lattice would be as a background for the Penny Black flowers!  I use it time and time again! 

We are into the hot and muggies around here.  Perfect weather to be in the air-conditioned craft room playing with new stamps! 

I grew up in the South at a time when homes were not air conditioned.  On those especially hot and humid nights, we would lie in bed, not moving except to occasionally flip our pillow over to the "cool" side.  Occasionally my mom would take us to the air conditioned movie theater ... it was like magic!  My sister and I would delight in the lavishly furnished lobby and ladies' room before settling down to watch the main attraction. 

Our air conditioning was out for about three hours last summer and it was an absolute emergency!  We paid the weekend service charges rather than wait one day for repairs!  Can you say "spoiled"?

Hope your day is filled with summer breezes, lemonade and time to play!
