Wouldn't you love to be sitting out in the park on a bench enjoying nice warm weather. I used some of the new Poppy Stamps dies to create this relaxing scene.
I started with a piece of design paper from the Websters Papers "Ladies & Gents and Trendsetter" paper pad for the background. The bench is the Poppy Stamps "Madison Park Bench". The side pieces were die cut using brushed gold card stock (to look like metal) and the bench was die cut using black card stock. I love how this die works to create a very dimensional bench. The lamp post is the Poppy Stamps "Antique Lamp Post" and the flowers are in the new Poppy Stamps "Hanging Flower Basket". Memory Box has a die with the perfect little flowers for the basket called ""Floral Delights". To get the tiny leaves I used pieces from the Cheery Lynn "Princess Tree". I think this little hanging basket is so cute! The little butterflies were cut from the Memory Box "Butterfly Vine". The wings were sponged with Distress Ink.
To ground the bench, I die cut a bunch of the MFT "Fresh Cut Grass" and layered it under the bench. Since I had the butterflies flitting around, I thought it would look cute to add that little Poppy Stamps "Curious Cat" watching them. The corner looked like it needed something, so I created a flower with the Cheery Lynn "Sweet Williams" die.
