Penny Black Poppies In a Fancy Frame

I was shopping at my local hobby and craft store the other day and I found a "Fancy Frames" Cricut cartridge in the clearance rack . Of course I had to buy it!!!

Since then I've spent  entire afternoons cutting out  frames that are just the right size for my greeting cards.

The image on the card front is a Poppy Stamp from Penny Black. I colored the image using Derwent Colored  pencils and blended the colors with baby oil. The sentiment was stamped on a scrap of velum and then backed with a snippet of white card stock. A few  little snippets of ribbon were added to the sentiment.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope you have a great day.
Ta Ta For Now,


  1. Very pretty card...I like the orange and the frame is so well set off by the background. Looks like you 'framed' yourself doing all that cutting!...groan.... sorry....couldn't resist that one!! :)

  2. What a great find! I love the frame and it looks so good with the orange underlay.

  3. I have seen this cartridge for sale in a few places but not sure if I could use it in my Cricut. I have the 6" one, but maybe it would ...I could certainly make 7x5 frames like this.
    Your card is gorgeous. I do love orange and the flowers are lovely.
    Well done and now to remember where I have seen the cartridge.

  4. This is so pretty and a perfect frame for those gorgeous poppies.

  5. Kathy, this is OH so pretty! I LOVE the gorgeous orange color--the poppy image is lovely, too! Thank you for linking up with my Birthday Giveaway at On A Stampage! HUGS! :) Mynn xx
