A Host of Poppy Cards

Evening All
Only one more day at work this week, thank goodness, and then hopefully I can remain warm for a couple of days as there is no sign of our doors being fixed any time soon!!
We had a fabulous class at Davina's last Saturday playing with two beautiful Hobby Art Poppy stamps.
I love this stamp in particular.
This card was made using a piece of handmade background paper, distress inks and a bit of Wink of Stella.
 It was great to use up some bits of handmade background paper.
I used some mica powder on the background card here and added some Faux Card Candi.
The inspiration for these cards came from the lovely Lisa B, and an idea that she shared at a Hobby Art workshop a couple of months ago.
This makes use of a piece of background created when playing with my Gelli Plate.
And this one as well.
It is a great way of using up those scraps of background that are
too small for a complete card,
but too good to throw away.
And even those pieces that you are really not sure about until they are cut up lol.
Here you are Ina, I've made a very small dent in blogging my stash of cards. Perhaps I will manage a few more tomorrow.
