Masked Poppies: UWF Poppy Fields for Ellen Hutson

Welcome to the UWF Poppy Fields blog hop!!!!! I am thrilled to be working with the United We Flourish Stamp & Die Combo Poppy Fields by Altenew designed exclusively for Ellen Hutson.  You should have arrived here from Kymona Tracey’s blog! If you get lost along the way, you can always head back to the Ellen Hutson CLASSroom or the Altenew blog!

I created a paper mask with one of the poppy images and stamped it multiple times onto a piece of watercolored cardstock. Then I watercolored them in with Fall like colors and cut it so I could adhere it to a card base with foam dimension.

Next up on the hop is Svitlana Shayevich!

Here is a look at the UWF Poppy Fields die/stamp combo! Grab it while you can, because once it is gone, it’s gone!


To celebrate, two randomly selected commenters will win a $30 gift certificate to the Ellen Hutson shop and two commenters will win a $30 gift certificate to the Altenew shop. To enter just leave a comment on the Ellen Hutson Classroom blog or the Altenew blog by 12pm PST on Wednesday, September 27th!!

Thanks for stopping by today! 🙂
