suki sweetheart & fred frolic

Hello everyone! Here are a couple of projects that I made for poppystamps.


I made these mini thank you cards using the adorable suki sweetheart. Isn't she darling?


I inked the rustic cream card bases with wild honey and barn door then stamped the peach blossom poem with tattered rose.


The bamboo panels are inked with bundled sage, forest moss and a little bit of wild honey. The bamboo shoot is then stamped with crushed olive. I added vintage photo to the edges of the panels, too. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

For my second card, I used the super cute fred frolic. He is so delightful and it makes me happy just to color him! =)


This time I paired him with his little buddy running pup. Don't they look like they are playing in a beautiful early spring day? At least that's what I was aiming for. =)


The patterned paper is from the Frond collection by Memory Box and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.


Just a little reminder, if you haven't visited this post yet, you still have time to leave a comment there for a chance to win 12 poppystamps of your choice! Good luck! =)
