Can You Handle the Pressure - POPPIES

Dear Ones~
  There's a new challenge over at Can You Handle the Pressure.   For this challenge blog you MUST use an EMBOSSING FOLDER on your project.  Heat embossing (with embossing powder) is permitted but only IN ADDITION to your embossing folder design.  Each new challenge will have a 'TWIST' which is optional ... your choice to use or not.

The OPTIONAL TWIST for today's challenge is:

 Here is my sample:
I LOVE to paper piece, it's like putting together a puzzle. This card was so easy to do, and I really enjoyed the process. The circle behind the poppy is embossed with a cute folder by Stampin' Up and that circle die is to die for.

The Ingredients:
GKD White and Black Onyx Card Stock
SU Regals Designer Series Patterned Paper
 SU Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder
Spellbinders Picot Petite Circle
Memory Box Perky Poppy Die
Lawn Fawn Hugs and Kisses Die for Greeting
PTI Bows Galore Dies
Judy Dots

If you head on over to the Can You Handle the Pressure Blog and play along, you could win this fabulous embossing folder, it's just GORGEOUS!!
Don't forget to check out all the beautiful cards the other designers have created while you are there.

Until next time dear reader, ASPIRE to be INSPIRED!
Here's celebrating your CREATIVE MUSE.


  1. BEAUTIFUL creation inside & out! The black outline really makes this poppy POP! Great job!

  2. Paper pieced or inlay, just so beautiful! Pretty circle die and I adore that texture. Your Designer Paper is super pretty too! What a wonderful creation!

  3. Beautiful poppy design!

  4. Gorgeous, just love that white doily die, very elegant and perfect contrast with the red/black.

  5. Poppies are my favorite and you have done well here. I red on the white is stunning! All the texture on the circle and the paper piecing is your forte'. The extra little bow is sweet and that four corner Judy dots are just the right touch.

  6. Oh, how cute! In addition to everything else, I also love that cute layered bow. The hugs sentiment almost appears to be part of the poppy die. I just love it all, Judy!

  7. Wonderful creative and fabulous design, and the colours really pop. ♥
