Hi crafty friends! Today I am back with a flower card. Perfect for any occasion with those adorable big and bold poppies! The poppies are by Stampendous, I just love their big stamp designs. They really make a statement. Plus can you see how amazing their matching dies cut?! No border!!!


I made it a birthday card, because you can never have enough of those. But the card design would work for a thank you card, get well, pretty much everything.


To color my lovely poppies I used my new Nuvo Aqua flow pens. The watercolor flows great out of their brush and they are really easy to blend.


I also played with my stencil and glimmer paste for the background to create a shiny but subtle look. And can you see the vase? I just had to add acetate there to make it look like a real glass.

You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel



  1. This is beautiful! It’s lovely to see dies that cut matching stamps without leaving that awful white border! A beautiful card Vicky, thank you.

  2. Gorgeous card Vicki, I love how you coloured your poppies and using the acetate over the vase to look like water was brilliant, I’d of never thought of that but I’ m going to give it a try! The new aqua Pens look amazing, do you know if you can get them in Canada, I can’t find them!

  3. Gorgeous card! I’d love to get those pens. Are they available in the U.S. yet? Thanks, as always, for sharing your endless talent!

  7. Beautiful card Vicky! This stamp set is gorgeous. I like the acetate on the vase. These new markers look fabulous, another thing to go on my wish list, lol. I so love watching you work, even if I don’t have the exact products you used, you always make me want to run down to my office and create. Thanks for sharing and always inspiring.

  8. Poppy video is so wonderful. I ordered the stamps & dies & was amazed they were in my mailbox in 4 days! Super service! I wish the other stamp companies would make dies that leave no white space. Who wants to spend the time coloring & have it look like a purchased sticker? Not most people I’m sure.
    Thank you sincerely for sharing your time & talents!

  9. Thanks for the wonderful video Vicky–love the watercolor pens & how easy they flow–love the stamps & especially the dies they cut perfectly!!
