Power Poppy.....Birthday Greetings


Happy Monday Peeps!!

I am sharing a card I made using an awesome digi stamp from Power Poppy. I have long been an admirer of this fabulous company. They have what I LOVE the most, flowers, all Flowers all the time.
I finally took the leap and bought this amazing digi stamp. They release new digis every month and also have a line of clear stamps too.
I printed this out onto some Rustic Cream cardstock and colored with my aqua painter and ink pads.
I used Strawberry Slush, a bit of Blushing Bride, the leaves are Wild Wasabi and then I outlined with some Lost Lagoon. The branch is colored Chocolate Chip ink.


I kept it fairly simple just layering the main panel onto some Strawberry Slush card stock.
The base is more Rustic Cream cardstock.
The sentiment is from the SU Wetlands stamp set. 
I added a few mini pearls to the flower centers of the open blooms.

I am adding this at the Seize the Birthday Challenge Blog.

Sweet Sunday......Amazing



Happy Sunday Peeps!!!


Here is the sweet sketch for this week:



I had fun with this one, I pulled out my SU Petite Petals stamp set and matching punch.
 I stamped a bunch of flowers using some Strawberry Slush ink and punched them out. 
The leaves are from a retired SU set called Blooming Marvelous, I think.
I used the MFT inside and out square dies for my center I used some white card stock and 
stamped the sentiment from the Painted Petals set in black





I arranged my flowers around the side of the square and when I had them like I wanted, I laid down a strip of Wild Wasabi and then glued down the flowers, tucking the leaves in and around. I added a couple of more flowers over the base of some with some dimensionals.
I used some yellow rhinestones from my stash in the flower middles.
The base of the card is white and the DSP is from the Painted Petals paper pack.

Be sure and head over to the Sweet Sunday Sketch Blog to see what the rest of the girls did with this fun sketch.

Crazy 4 Challenges...For Your Kindness


Happy Saturday Peeps!

Time for a new challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges, this is my next to last week guest designing with these lovely ladies and today Lynn has a great sketch challenge for us!



This was a fun one, I love the three circle elements in the corner. I had just gotten this set, Stampin Up's Painted Petals and decided it would be great for this card sketch.
I started by stamping my main image panel, I used Strawberry Slush and Wild Wasabi ink on Whisper White card stock. The Thank You was stamped with Memento Black ink.
I cute out this panel with one of my MFT stitched circle dies and then used one just smaller for the colored circle, thye are Wild Wasabi and Strawberry Slush card stock. 



The base of the card is Crumb Cake card stock and the the center strip is a layer of white card stock and then the DSP is from the Fresh Prints pack.
I added dots to circles and top sentiment piece with a stamp from the set using Versamark ink.
The top sentiment, "for your kindness" is part of a stamp from a retired set.
Be sure and head over to the Crazy 4 challenges Blog to be see what the girls did with his sketch.

Freshly Made sketches.....Amazing



Happy Thursday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.


A really great sketch for a large image like the one in the Stampin Up Indescribable Gift, I love this flower image, (I wish SU had more images for coloring like this).
I stamped the flower image with black stazon onto some PTI white card stock and colored with my water brush and ink pads.
I used Wild Wasabi, Calypso Coral, and the Early Espresso for the stem.



I shaded around the image with Soft Sky ink. I used my white gel pen to dot the inside and my journaling pen for the outside dots.
The flower panel is matted with Calypso Coral card stock and glued to the white base.
The sentiment is from the Painted Petal stamp set and is stamped with Calypso Coral ink.
I hand cut the end and curled it. I added it to the base using some glue and foam tape under the curl to keep it up.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Paper Players....Happy Birthday


Happy Monday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the color challenge this week on the The Paper Players Blog.


I started out with a base of Crumb Cake cardstock and then the next layer is white stamped with the Woodgrain Back Ground stamp. I love that Background and I need to place it on my next order, this one was stamped by a friend and given to me.
The circle is Costal Cabana.
I used the Peaceful Petals stamp set for my flowers and leaves.


I stamped two of the flowers and two leaves and colored with my water brush and ink pads.
I used Strawberry Slush for the flowers and Pistachio Pudding for the leaves. I di d sneak in just a bit of yellow for the flower centers.
The Happy Birthday is from a retired SU set.
I finished up with a few enamel dots.
I decide just before putting it all together to round the top corners of the base and wood grain panel.
I like how this one came out, kinda feels like coming home. :)

Crazy 4 Challenges....You're So Good For My Heart


Happy Saturday peeps!!

It is week two of me guest designing at Crazy 4 Challenges.

Since today is National Pet Day our challenge is to create a card or project using some type of pet as our inspiration.
I decide to use my fun new set from MFT by Birdie Brown called "You Have My Heart".
I love it.
I started by making my BG bricks. I used a stencil and modeling paste. After the paste dried I put the stencil back over the paste and sponged on some cherry cobbler ink.
Don't you love that look? So cool! 




I then stamped a colored the girl and dog image. I fussy cut them out and added foam tape to the backs to mount.
I cut some "grass" with a die and added this across the bottom. I then added the girl and her dog.
The sentiment is embossed with white onto some cherry cobbler card stock. I added a button with some twine.
This is all mounted onto a base of Crumb Cake card stock.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure and head over to the 
 to be inspired by what the rest of the girls did with this fun challenge!
