Tuesday Trigger

It's been awhile since I played at the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World; but I was really inspired by Cath's photo inspiration this week:


My mind went immediately to this beautiful poppy stamp by Hero Arts:


supplies: white and red cardstock, Hero Arts CL449 Delicate Blossoms, VersaFine onyx black ink, Letraset Amaranth Red and Bright Green Flex Markers, CL491 Made with Love, Adirondack cranberry ink and clear embossing powder, Nestabilities circle and scallop circle dies

This works also for the Love Card Challenge at Moxie Fab World's Stamp It! Cards Week challenges.  And it works for Virginia's challenge, using her tip to use just a part of a stamp in your design.

Love how the circular die cut echoes the shape of the plate in the trigger! And the rich red of your poppies is just gorgeous!

Wow, that card just popped right off the page. It's gorgeous! A great way to use that stamp, too, I never thought of using it in a circle but I love the way it looks. Maybe I do need to take the Stretch Your Stamps class!

GORGEOUS! Those poppies are popping off the paper - say that 10 time fast! One of my favorite things you do is match you sentiment color to your image! It always look so polished and professional! GREAT take on V's challenge! Hugs, Marcy
