TGF: Poppy

Today's card is a super quick one, but its timing is great. It features Poppy, one of the stamps in The Greeting Farm's Secret Stamp Club -- which is taking subscriptions right now.

Poppy was the May stamp, and she's a part of the charm school line. I love how adorable all the girls in this line are, and Poppy is no exception. Someday, I'm going to make a massive card that features all the girls. But until then... let's go back to today's card.

I stamped Poppy out with some brown hybrid ink and colored her in with Copics. I used brown and yellow for her outfit and bow -- those seemed like good school colors. And then I colored her hair minty green. I think it makes her look super fun! And a bit like she came straight out of a cartoon. After she was all colored in, I carefully cut her out, leaving a small white border.

Since Poppy was so bright and lovely, I decided to keep the rest of the card super simple. I paired a neutral gray patterned paper with a yellow one, and added a die from WPlus9 as a sentiment. I put Poppy on foam squares, and added a few black liquid pearls as decoration.

Thanks for reading!


  1. I love her, I'm so sad I don't have this image lol!!! She is too cute!!! :)

    1. Thank you, Ellen! Hopefully she'll be available soon for purchase on TGF. There's a few other stamps on there I've had my eye on...

  2. Every time I see you use brown, I think about how much you love it. :) She's such a darling image and you colour her so beautifully. I love the use of patterned paper. I was just recently commenting on how I struggle to use some patterned papers and cards like yours provide enormous inspiration.

    1. Thank you, Kylie!

      I have been elbow-deep in paper. I've got so many wonderful, inspiring and challenging papers to use. I'm having a blast picking and choosing things to go with each card. Glad to see my fun with paper inspires you too! That's an amazing compliment. *hugs*
