Altenew | Mini Delight: Poppy Instagram Hop

Hello there, I am delighted to be joining Altenew today to celebrate the release of the Mini Delight Poppy Stamp & Die Set. We are celebrating with a fun Instagram Hop with lots of inspiration and prizes! As the name suggests, this is one of their smaller sets but it is so beautiful! More information on the hop below. 

For my card, I started off by stamping the main poppy from the Altenew Mini Delight: Poppy Stamp & Die Set using Ruby Red ink from the Altenew Red Cosmos Crisp Dye Ink Mini Cube Set. I then stamped the leaves using Forest Glades and Frayed Leaf inks from the Altenew Green Fields Crisp Dye Ink Mini Cube Set. The middle of the flower was stamped in Jet Black ink. They were then cut out using the coordinating dies. 

I took a white A2 card base and scored lines on to it using a mini score board and the Altenew Crafter's Essential Bone Folder (apologies that they are difficult to see in the photos). I then stamped the sentiment from the Altenew Adore You Stamp Set using black ink. The leaves were adhered to the card with Altenew 2 in 1 Precision Glue and the poppy with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Lucy's Iridescent Jewels.

  1. Beautiful, I love the simplicity of this card Michelle. The bigger pop of red is beautiful with the little green leaves and of course I love the extra detail of score lines. You'll see some scorelines on a card from me coming soon... :) xx
