The Stockings Were Hung with Care…

Fridays always bring another sample of the latest release from Power Poppy…and today I have an image from the Poinsettia stamp set. 

DPK_PP_PoinsettiaStocking_wm

I stamped the stocking image on white cardstock and colored it with copic markers.  I used red flock on the stocking and Marvy Liquid Applique on the cuff and sparkled the center of the poinsettia with a Stardust Gelly Roll pen.  I cut out the image and counted it to a tag I die cut and used a brad to “hang” the stocking. 

Just a sweet little tag that would be perfect on a gift bag! 

These Bloom Brigade ladies have more lovelies to share!

I hope you are have a lovely Friday and I’m so glad that you stopped by!  Have a great weekend and get ready for the Power Poppy November release next week!

Dancing Pumpkin Head

Happy Friday!
I haven’t been blogging for a couple of weeks and I hope you miss me!  I’ve been suffering with a pinched nerve in my neck that shoots down my left shoulder and arm and has really had me in a pickle!  Between therapy and the anti-inflammatory I have been taken for a month now I am finally starting to get some relief.  I spent all day in my studio and managed to get several projects done, whew!

Without further ado, here is a new image from A Day For Daisies, called Dancing Pumpkin Head 1.  My goodness, these new image are so cute!

DPK_ADFD_DancingPumpkinhead1

I printed my image on kraft paper and colored it with Prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits.  I shaded the edges of the panel with Brushed Corduroy from a Distress Ink pad.
I found this adorable paper in my scrapbook paper stash and cut it down to fit my card.  I stamped the sentiment from an old wood mounted stamp and added a spider button embellishment.    How cute is she?!

Please check out the adorable samples from our design team and pop on over to the ADFD blog to see all of the images!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

There really is glittery sugar all over those babies!  It’s hard to tell on my monitor…I hope you can see it!

I printed them twice, colored them with Copic markers, and popped them up over the printed panel.  The cute patterned paper is from My Minds Eye and just tied up with a simple sheer black ribbon.

October Power Poppy Hop

PowerPoppyHopGraphic1_MH

It’s that time of the month when you get to hop around and see all of the beautiful creations the Bloom Brigade has to share from all of the new October sets from Power Poppy.

DPK_PP_BottleBrushfalala_wm

I chose another beautiful image from the Bottlebrush Holiday stamp set.   Colored with Copic markers and cut with a Spellbinders die…shaded with the die still in place, and same with the sentiment.  I painted over the bottle brush tree with glitter paint and added dimension and shine to the turquoise ornament with Glossy Accents.  

DPK_PP_BottleBrushfalala_closeup

I deliberately added tons of air bubbles to the Glossy Accents to give the ornament the vintage hand made feel.  No, no I didn’t.  But I’d like to think I did, lol!  The patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Jovial pad.

I really love all of the new sets and I hope you hop around and see them all!

Poinsettia

This is one of my favorite new sets from the October release from Power Poppy.  I love me a pretty poinsettia!

PowerPoppy_Oct_Poinsettia

The image contains one beautiful big poinsettia bloom and pomegranates.  It’s a gorgeous combination.

After I colored my image with Copic markers I trimmed it closely. Then I used a Krylon Gold paint pen and edged it.  I used the gold edging again around the sentiment.    I painted over each pomegranate  and the poinsettia center with iridescent translucent paint to give them a soft shimmer.   You can see it in the image below.

I yet again went to my Authentique Festive paper pad for this layout.  I used a Spellbinders  lacey circles die for a mat under the image.

All of the new sets are available today at Power Poppy!    For more inspiration visit each Bloom Brigade ladies below!

Frosted Gingerbread

It’s day three of the October sneak peeks from Power Poppy!  This is a yummy one!

Introducing…

PowerPoppy_Oct_Frosted_Gingerbread

This was so much fun to color! 

DPK_PP_FrostedGB_wm

I chose the candy strip knowing it would make a pretty border.  I colored it up with Copic markers and sponged around the edges with Wheat ink from a VersaMagic Dew Drop.  I added clear micro beads to the gum drops to make them look sugar coated.  You can see it in the close up below.

DPK_PP_FrostedGB_closeup

The patterned paper is from the Jillibean Soup Christmas Eve Chowder pad.   I trimmed one edge of the brown printed paper with a scalloped edge border punch.   I stamped the sentiment and sponged the edges of that panel to match the main image.

See all of the yumminess from the Bloom Brigade ladies below.

Joyful Arrangements

Good morning!  Today is another sneak peek from the Power Poppy October Release.  This one is Joyful Arrangements.

PowerPoppy_Oct_JoyfulArrangements

This new set contains several fun holiday arrangements. 

DPK_PP_JoyfulArrangements_wm

I colored this image with Copic markers and cut it out with a die from Spellbinders.  With the die still in place I sponged around the image with Wheat ink from a VersaMagic Dew Drop.

The beautiful patterned paper is from the Authentique Festive pad.  I used a hand cut banner under the matted image and an adhesive pearl at each end.

I love the vintage feel of this and can’t wait to show off the other beautiful images in this set!  Now check out the Bloom Brigades goodies!
