Power Poppy Day Two!

Today is another wonderful stamp set from Power Poppy!  Each one gets better than the last…I don’t know how Marcella keeps it up!  She is amazing!  This new set sports beautiful new sunflower images and a gorgeous grouping of Chinese Lantern and Bittersweet!


I have a rogue sunflower popping up in my side garden.  I’m not sure if it’s a seed from last years flowers (I didn’t plant any this year) or if it’s from a seed from the bird feeder…but it’s got a big bud on it and I am so excited to find out what kind it is!


I just love this image!  Chinese Lanterns are so delicate and lovely and the bittersweet vine has always been a favorite of mine.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic Markers.  I then just used a Micron 01 pen and hand lined the rustic frame around the image.  I like all of the white space.  Very simple!  The orange patterned paper is from the Market pad by Crate Paper.

Oh the gorgeousness continues with these lovely Bloom Brigade ladies below!

Power Poppy Day One

I’m so excited to show you todays first set that is previewing for the August Power Poppy release!  Sorry I am about 12 hours late though!  My boys were at camp in the Finger Lakes of NY…oh so gorgeous up there!  I was so wrapped up in planning the weekend and picking them up that I missed my post.  But I’m here now…better late than never I hope!


It’s too early here for apples…September will bring more than I know what to do with, but I will happily try to use them all!

This image is from Farmers Market. 


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic Markers.  I used Spellbinders dies to cut out the image and the mat, Lacey Ovals.   With the oval die still in place, I sponged on Wheat ink from a VersaMagic Dew Drop.   The fun apple  and market patterned paper is from the Crate Paper Market pad.

So many gorgeous creations coming your way this week from the Bloom Brigade, beginning with these below! 
Thanks for stopping by and look for another peek tomorrow!

Eternal Roses

Ooh yeah, it’s Friday!  And what better way to start the weekend than with a beautiful bouquet of roses!  Today I have another card creation using Arranging Roses from Power Poppy.


I printed just a portion of the image two times along the bottom edge of the cardstock then I colored it with Copic markers.   I used Labels Twenty Two from Spellbinders to die cut the sentiment and sponged it with Angel Pink from Memento.    I used a wide piece of silk ribbon with a paper rose from Michaels and a rustic twine bow for embellishment.

Very simple and elegant!  It was a quick and easy card to make, and I like that!

These Bloom Brigade ladies have some beauties to share today so hop on over!

Lady Bug Beauty

It’s another fun, sweet, beautiful new release from A Day For Daisies! The July Club Kit is here and it’s full of lovely ladybugs!
It’s also a challenge week so join us and use torn paper.  Easy peasy!
Today I am sharing Ladybug and Me and I just love it!
I printed out this adorable image on white card stock and colored it with Copic markers.  I went over the fairy’s wings with Glitter Paint from DecoArt to make them shimmer.  I also added a bit to the flowers in her hair and the big yellow flower. 
The paper is from Simple Stories and the paper rose from Michaels.  I tore strips and distressed the edges of all the panels.  It was fun and easy!
Check out these lovely creations from the design team!
Now join us over at the ADFD Blog and show us your torn paper creations! 
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!

Peaceful Thoughts

Happy Friday!  I have another card to share from the July release from Power Poppy
I love coloring the beautiful Countryside Bouquet image. 
After printing the digital image I colored it with Copic markers.  I used Spellbinders dies, Classic Circle and Scalloped Circles to cut the image and mat.  I used a scrap of Bo Bunny striped paper for the background and added a paper flowers from Recollections to the sentiment from the Good Thinking: Renewal stamp set.
Check out all of the beautiful creations from all of the lovely Bloom Brigade ladies!

There’s No Place Like Gnome

This week is an adorable new release from A Day For Daisies.
Here is Mushroom Gnome from In My Garden.
What a fun cutie to color!  I used Copic markers on the entire image.  I used a white gel pen for the dots on the mushroom and on his hat.  I used a grass punch from Martha Stewart to make the grass layers and a fern punch under the sentiment.    I flocked his beard, mustache, and eyebrows…nice and fuzzy!   The paper is from the Basic Grey Boxer pad.
Check out the ladies cute samples this week!
Thanks for stopping by and have a fun weekend!

Okay, now it’s Round!

Whew, made it to another Friday!  This week there is a challenge over at A Day For Daisies, and it’s make your card round!
Here is my Flower Piglet!  We’ll just consider last week your sneak peek, lol!
I am loving these sweet animals in the July Club Kit!    I colored my piggies up with Copic Markers first, then shaded with Prismacolor pencils.  I used Spellbinders to cut the image, mat, and base cards.  The paper is from the MME In Bloom
The team has more beautiful animals to share today!
Hope everyone enjoyed their week! Have a great weekend!
