Poppystamps Challenge: The Heat is On!


August has arrived and we are feeling HOT HOT HOT! It’s the perfect time for the August challenge over at Poppystamps, The Heat is On! All you have to do is make your own sizzling summer card creation and link it up on the Poppystamps blog for your chance to win some sizzling hot summer prizes! Get all the details right here: http://poppystamps.typepad.com/poppystamps/2015/08/poppystamps-challenge-11-the-heat-is-on.html


I used a combination of new and old Poppystamps favorites for this country sizzler! I started out with yellow and orange inks for a blended ink sponged background. I cut the Stitched Landscapes in lime green, the Weeping Willow Branches in primary green, and the Alpine House Collection in white. I added a cool blue window, a pale yellow background, and a terra cotta colored roof from the Alpine House Roofs and Background, all from Poppystamps. That big hot sun is from the Stitched Circle Layers from Memory Box Open Studio. Then came the fun part – -sunflowers! I cut three sunflowers in various shades of white, yellow, and orange from the Bountiful Sunflower and the Bountiful Sunflower Background, one of my all-time favorite Poppystamps die combinations!


You can see more amazing summer heat inspired cards over on the Poppystamps blog from a few of our very hot Poppystamps designers!

Thanks for joining me today!

Live your life in color!
