It's a Power Poppy Friday & A New Digital Release!













Hello there everybody and a very happy Friday to you!  I hope you have had an awesome week!  Boy, does Power Poppy have a treat for you today!  Traditionally, those fabulous Instant Gardeners- Power Poppy's Digital Design Team- herald in the latest and greatest digi image hot off of Marcella's desk but since today is a Friday, we thought it would be fun to rally all of the Bloomie troops for one huge blog hop to celebrate the arrival of Bees in Foxglove.  Just take a lookie at this beaut.......

Our newest addition to the Instant Garden Collection just happens to be one that's a tall beauty that's not only colorful but a dramatic beauty. Our newest set, Bees in Foxglove, features three lush stalks of foxglove (Digitalis) with three plump bumblees buzzing around doing their bumblebee thing! Add in a cheery all occasion sentiment and you have one stunning set that is ready to download, print, color and create with!




Have. you. ever?!  Oh, that Marcella has really outdone herself with this lovely image!  You are going to love all of the lovely detail with this image.....for sure!  Let me show you what I created.....





After printing this image out, I decided to crop a portion of it to highlight on this card.  Now, I have to say....the first time I saw this image I could not help but notice that these were absolutely the fuzziest fuzzy wuzzy bees ever....and so totally adorable in their little foxglove scene!  I'll bet they thought they hit the jackpot with these gorgeous blooms!  I colored the image with Copics, die cut it out, sponged on some distress inks, gold leafed it, and layered it with a scalloped square die cut all to show off these blooms and quite possibly the cutest little bee boo-tay of all time.....hee!  So here's a close up.......




The sentiment is from the  Dynamic Duos: Peonies and Tulips stamp set.  O Happy Day, indeed!  Does he not look like he is having a blast doing his little bee thing and takin' care of business?  And Marcella sure gave him plenty of gorgeous blooms to visit!  The rest of the card is a layer of stitched patterned paper on card stock and then the whole assembly is adhered to a square card base.  I added a little Wink of Stella in clear on the bee's wings and the flower centers.  I also used Papertrey Ink's Chai and Chamomile inks to distress my edges.  All of the wonderful shading cues in this image make it a snap to color up and there are several different ways you could crop this image to use just a portion of it for different ways to tuck in a sentiment or if you just want to show off the whole incredible image on one card and really knock someone's socks off then you can do that too!  ;)  This digital image does come with it's own sweet sentiment which I am sure you will be seeing along the hop.

So that's all for my card today but like I mentioned earlier, Marcella has combined the design teams together for this digital release so you have many incredible blogs to visit and see all of the wonderful possibilities for this one image....and after you have been wowed time and again (and I am sure you will with this amazing group of ladies) then you can go make this image your own.....like today....that's right, because this image is available today for you to download and color up your own bees and blooms to your heart's content!   That's the beauty of using a digital image, and if you like this one then check out the entire Power Poppy digital collection available here.  I am so glad you were able to stop by today for a visit and until next time, take care!

It's a Power Poppy Friday AND a new Power & Spark Challenge!














Well hello there....long time no see, right?  How have you been?  Things are going well here and today is pretty exciting because the new Power Poppy Power & Spark Challenge is starting today!  Woo Hoo!  I have really enjoyed these monthly challenges and today's is sure to be a hit....it's hosted by that super sweet CAS Queen  Stacy Morgan and if you love to fussy cut, then you are in for real treat.  You can check out all of the details here.  For today's card I thought I would take a simpler approach with minimal layering so the fussy cut bloom would truly be the star....so let me show you what I created.





As you can see, this card is a little less like my normal "lots of layers" approach.  I stamped my single Camellia bloom image from the Simply Camellias stamp set twice using Memento's Tuxedo Black ink, once on pink patterned paper and once on green patterned paper.  I fussy cut the the pink paper Camellia and included the leaves and then cut the stamped leaves out of the green paper and glued them directly to my pink paper stamped image.  Next, I took a few Copics in pinks and greens and gave the image some depth.....nothing fancy, just a few quick  brushes of color here and there to give the image more dimension.  Next, I took an ivory card stock panel, ran it through my Grand Calibur with a Stampin' Up! embossing folder to give me a little decorative oval, and then stamped my sentiment from the Sunny Harvest stamp set.  Some stitching came next, adding a simple border and then a zig zag stitch to adhere the red gingham paper.  I adhered my fussy cut bloom with some Scor Tape and then added a button with hemp cord to balance it out a bit.  I felt like it needed a little something else so I took some more of the pink patterned paper a little larger than my image panel and adhered it off set so the upper left corner had a bit of pink.  I added some Chamomile distress ink from Papertrey Ink around the card panel, gave my bloom some shimmer with my Wink of Stella clear pen and adhered everything to an ivory card stock base.  This card is dainty, measuring in at 3 5/8" x 4 5/8".




I just love that single Camellia bloom....it reminds me of the Camellias around our house.  Since the image was stamped on patterned paper, the coloring was minimal so this card came together pretty quickly.  I love the sweet embossed oval (can you believe I have had this embossing folder for quite a while, yet this is the first time I have used it?).  Well, that is pretty much all for my card, but some of my Bloomie team mates have created some true jewels for your inspiration so be sure to check them out....and don't forget to check out May's Power & Spark Challenge!  We would love for you to come play along with us!  Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit and until next time, take care!  :)

A Power Poppy Friday with Flowering Branches!











Well hello there and a very happy Friday to you!  I hope you have had a great week.....got any exciting plans for the weekend?  Working on any crafty projects?  Speaking of crafty projects, did you enjoy the festivities over on the Power Poppy blog earlier this week for the newest digital stamp release- Flowering Branches?  Those Instant Gardeners put on quite a show!  Well today, the Bloom Brigade gets to play with that beautiful image.  So here is another look at Flowering Branches...




If you didn't get a chance to see Marcella's post for this release, you really need to check that out here.  All of the inspirational photos she shared were amazing!  It inspired me to do a little research on Flowering Crab apples and guess what I discovered.  There is a weeping variety that has dark pink buds that turn to white flowers with a slight blush and the fruit is a yellow hue with a pink blush....doesn't that just sound heavenly?   And the very best part of all is the name....."Louisa"!  It was almost too good to be true...so I had to color my image up like that variety in honor of our very own crab apple illustrator extraordinaire, who just happens to hail from Saint "Louisa"!  :)





I started by sizing and printing my digital image out and colored it up with Copics.  Next, I die cut my image out with a die from Spellbinders' A2 Matting Basics A set.  After that I ran it through my Grand Calibur with a wood grain impression plate from Papertrey Ink.  I added a little Chamomile ink from PTI around the edges and then layered it with some pink patterned paper.  After adding the stitched border, I adhered my layered image on a Stampin' Up! Crumb Cake card stock card base.  A little Whisper White ink sponged around the edges softens the card up a bit.  For my sentiment, I printed it out and die cut it with a tag die from Papertrey Ink, then sponged on Ranger Distress ink in Scattered Straw, Peeled Paint, and Festive Berries to mimic one of the crab apples on my card.  I added a green satin bow and adhered the tag to my card with dimensionals.  A few sweeps across the blooms and crab apples with my Wink of Stella Clear glitter pen finished everything off.  This set comes with two extra sweet sentiments for Mother's Day.  My mama certainly taught me how to bloom so this will be going to her soon (and if you are reading this mama......surprise and love you!)




Isn't that font lovely....not to mention the incredibly gorgeous and oh so dainty crab apple buds and blooms.  The darling little crab apples are an added bonus!  The inside of the card will have the other sentiment from this digital set, "Happy Mother's Day". I think I just outed myself that I haven't finished the inside of the card yet....oh well.  :)  Just pretend it's all done for this post, ok?  So, that is all for my card today but some of my Bloomie team mates have some truly beautiful things to show you so you've just got to go check that out.  Make sure you leave a little love while you're there too!  Then, if you haven't made this digital image your own yet, I would highly suggest that you take a stroll over to the Power Poppy store where you can purchase and download this beauty today!  

And speaking of mamas, I thought I would share a little photo of me with mine.  She is quite an amazing lady...in the last four years she has gone through breast cancer treatment and gone through two knee replacements....she's a regular Steel Magnolia!  :)  




I am so glad you could stop by today and I hope that you have a wonderful and restful weekend.  If you are able to squeeze in a little crafty time, even better...right?  There is still plenty of time to enter the Power Poppy Power and Spark Pastels challenge and wouldn't this image make a pretty pastel project?  Hmmmmm.....:)  Thank you again for your visit and until next time, take care!

Power Poppy's April Power &Spark Challenge



Hi there and a Happy Friday to you! Are you still reeling from Power Poppy's April Scents and Sensibility Stamp release?  Have you been able to pick a favorite set or do you just love them all?  I think I already know the answer to that!  ;)  Things are all a'buzz over at Bloom Central (the Power Poppy Blog) today.  We have the announcement of last month's winner of the Power & Spark Gold Challenge, the announcment of the winner of Power Poppy's Birthday Blog Hop, and we are kicking off April's Power & Spark Challenge!  Whew....that's a whole lotta bloomin' goin' on!  ;)  Which brings me to my post for today's festivities. The incredibly talented and super sweet Allison Cope is our hostess and here is a word from her about the challenge...

"With Spring slowly making away across the land, it reveals the beautiful of so many gorgeous blooms and buds: blooms of soft buttery yellows, light lavender purples and pastel rosy pinks. So for this month's challenge, I want to see you create with a soft, subtle color palette of PASTELS. Let's see those creamy oranges, delicate grassy greens and beautiful soft shades of color on your cards and creations. I was inspired to create a card using the subtle palette of watercolor on my bouquet. I can't wait to see what you create!"  ~ Ally





Quite timely, I would say....wouldn't you?  I can't wait to see all of the beautiful pastel creations for this one! You can check out all of the challenge details here. I chose to use the incredibly beautiful Orchids Rock stamp set but I thought I would show you a new way to look at this set.  How do you feel about some baby blooms?  ;)





I have had the idea for using this sentiment and image for a baby card for a while now.  This pastel challenge was the perfect time to pull it all together.  Don't you think that wee lil' orchid and sweet sentiment makes an awesome card for a baby girl?  And I imagine that come time for a 2 am feeding, that cry will probably be pretty fierce....hee!  Actually, I am in need of a baby girl card....one of my dearest friends in the world is going to be a Grandma soon and...it's a girl!  :)  With this being such a special occasion, I simply had to pull out the big guns for this card....yep, my Marianne Designs Anja's Squares Die set.  Shall we all take a moment......ok, I'm back.  I know we all have that favorite/special something that we like to use and this die set is it for me.  You can get so many looks from this set!  

Another thing you may have noticed here....the image is not colored.  What?!  Now, I know that this may be a sensitive subject for some coloring enthusiasts out there....and believe me, no one loves their Copics more than I do...truly....but let me also say you can incorporate an uncolored image in your projects and it looks a-mazing.  Case in point....this lovingly detailed, oh-so-gorgeous Marcella  orchid here....now I ask you, doesn't she look stunning in all her glory?  





I rest my case.  ;)  So, now that I have gone off on my little no coloring tangent, how about I give you a few details about this card?   Since coloring was not in the process, the card can be put together pretty quickly.  I just die cut out my layers, stamped my image on the circle die cut, sponged some ink around, layered it with a scallop circle and did some stitching.  Next, I die cut my sentiment panel, stamped my sentiment, and sponged more ink around.  I punched two very small holes in one end of the sentiment die cut and tied some ribbon.  Then, I assembled all of the card stock and patterned paper layers, gave the orchid some shimmer with my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen, and added some buttons to round things out a bit.  




Here's one more angle.  I was trying to catch the shimmer on the orchid, but I just don't think it is showing up.  It is there, I promise!  That is all for my card today, but I hope that maybe this will inspire you to look at some of your stamp sets in a new light and maybe even.....dare I say it....leave an image uncolored?  Gasp!  What is the world coming to, right?  :)  Well, at least think about it....:)  So are you ready to go hop around and see some truly stunning pastel creations compliments of some of my Bloom Brigade sisters?  Make sure you leave them a little love when you visit and then why don't you whip up a pastel project of your own and come play along with us?  I can't wait to see what you create and until next time, I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend, and take care!  :)

Power Poppy's April Blog Hop!












Hey there friends!  I am so glad to see you back today for Power Poppy's April Blog Hop!  The Bloom Brigade is all together today to give you one last look at the stamp sets in Marcella's Scents and Sensibility Collection.  Do you think your heart can take one more hop?  And even better....all of the stamps are available today in Power Poppy's store!  So wait no more, go forth and grab up all three of these gorgeous sets and add them to your own personal garden today!  ;)  But before you do, can I show you my card?  I chose to use the Daffodils set for today's hop...




When I saw that glorious bouquet of daffodils, I knew that was the one for me.  I mean, the whole set is amazing, but I just knew I had to color that bouquet up.  And I also knew I would probably end up using most of the Copic markers in my bag....lol.  I wanted to make a wide variation of colors in the bouquet so that calls for extra markers, right?  ;)




I wanted the entire focus to be on this beautiful bouquet so I kept the card layering to a minimum (for me, anyway) and amped up the color on my image.  I will admit I spent a good little while coloring up this image, but I think most of the time was spent ogling all of the daffodil varieties online trying to decide how I wanted to color each one. I stamped my image on to white card stock with Memento's Tuxedo Black ink and then set in to coloring.  Once I was done, I die cut my image and sponged on some Ranger Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass.  Next I stamped my sentiment, die cut it out, sponged on more of the distress ink and layered it with another die cut.  For my card I embossed a piece of yellow patterned paper, sanded it a bit, and then added a strip of blue patterned paper and some die cut edging that resembled a postage stamp.  I added my stitching and then adhered it to my card base.  Finally, I added my image panel and sentiment panel and hit some of the blooms with my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen for some sparkle.  




And there they all are, with all of that Marcella incredible detail, sending daffodil hugs to you!  :) I love this sentiment....I am SO a hugger, so I'll be using this sentiment often and sending hugs all over the place!   Oh, and lest I forget the Grape Hyacinth....no small players in this bouquet for sure!  I love the contrast that they bring with the many varieties of daffodils and jonquils...all so beautifully orchestrated by our floral conductor, Marcella.   In fact, if you listen close....I'll bet you can hear Vivaldi's "Spring" right now... ;)  

Well, that is all for my card today but the rest of the Bloom Brigade has the most beautiful things to show you for this last hurrah, so please make sure to hop around and see for yourself.  And....once you're done a-hoppin' you can go a-shoppin' because like I said before, all of these amazing sets are available today!  Thank you so much for stopping by today and for all of your sweet comments.  I always enjoy our visits!  Oh, and Power Poppy will be having their next Power and Spark Challenge coming soon....you don't want to miss that!  So, until next time, take care!  :)

Power Poppy's April Stamp Release Day 2- Simply Camellias













Hello there and I am so glad you could stop by today.  Did you enjoy yesterday's hop?  Those lilacs are pretty spectacular, right?  Well, this next set is equally amazing and I think you will agree.  Why don't we just take a peek at Simply Camellias, shall we?




See, I told you!  Can you believe we now have a full stamp set dedicated to glorious camellias?!  I know...I am positively giddy!  I am sure I will be using this set again and again.  For my card today, I chose to highlight a single bloom.  




Isn't she beautiful?  I love that single bloom floating in the glass bowl.  I thought she looked so elegant so I decided to create an elegant card base.  The card came together really quickly.  I used Papertrey Ink's Vintage Cream card stock and ran it through my Grand Calibur using several dies from a couple of sets.  Some of my layers got the gold leafing treatment and some I kept plain.  For the very top die cut, I sponged on some Ranger Distress Ink in Weathered Wood and stamped the larger camellia image in Stampin' Up!'s Bordering Blue ink (I believe this ink is discontinued but I have hoarded a bottle....lol) while the paper was still in the die.  I then stamped my sentiment from this set in Versafine Onyx Black ink and stamped my single bloom image in Memento's Tuxedo Black ink on to some white card stock.  Once I colored my image, I fussy cut her out and used Ranger's Glossy Accents on the bowl.  I pulled out my Wink of Stella pen to add some shimmer to the bloom and I did add a bit to the water before I put the Glossy Accents on it.  Once it was dry, I adhered her to my assembled card using Collal. I think she looks completely at home here, don't you?  ;)




GAH.....will you just look at all of that wonderful detail!  This set has done nothing to curb my Camellia obsession in the least.....in fact, I feel pretty sure it has grown tremendously.  I am already thinking about the next one I need to get for my yard.  ;)  So that is all I have for my card today but there is more Camellia goodness for you to see compliments of my amazing Bloom Brigade sisters.  Make sure you leave them a little love while you are there and then be sure to check back tomorrow on the Power Poppy Blog for Day 3 of the April Stamp Release!  Thanks so much for stopping by and until next time, take care!

Power Poppy's April Stamp Release- Lilac Time!













Hi there and a very Happy Sunday!  I hope this day finds you well and excited about Power Poppy's April Stamp release, the Scents and Sensibility Collection.  Oh friends, you are in for such a wonderful release this month.  Remember all of those gorgeous digital images Marcella has been gracing us with lately?  Well, so many requested stamp versions and guess what...uh huh....they. are. here!  Let me introduce you to today's lovely set, Lilac Time...




Can't you just smell the heavenly scent?  And lookie.....Marcella even paired a glorious pitcher of lilacs with a few lemons and a book!  What a sweet little scene, but that is not the only image you get with this set......I am sure when you hop around today you will catch glimpses of what all this wonderful set includes.  For now, let me show you what I created....




For this card, I had a couple of things in mind.  First, I wanted a shaped card.  Second, I wanted to create a card with a vintage feel ( I mean, I can't let a collection name like "Scents and Sensibility" go by without a vintage card, right? Love that little play on words!).  Third, I wanted to highlight another way to use a detailed stamp without a whole lot of coloring for those of you out there that shy away from that sort of thing.  :)  So, I started by stamping my image on to patterned paper with Memento's Espresso Truffle ink and then die cutting it out with the smallest Spellbinders Grand Oval die. 

 Using a patterned paper can drastically minimize your color time because you can pick and choose a couple of things to highlight about the image and let the paper do the rest!  I chose to dab a little violet color on my lilacs....and I do mean dab.  No fancy brush strokes here.  These blooms are small, so you don't have to worry about being precise....just dab away to your heart's content and it will look great!  I used three different shades of violet Copics to give some high and low lights and then went in with my Stampin' Chalk marker to dab a couple of white dots in there for more high lights.  I also added some color to the lemons and leaves.  For my pitcher, I used a light earth toned copic to give some shadow to the areas that needed it and then applied Ranger's Glossy Accents for the shine.  I went in with my Wink of Stella Clear pen and added some shimmer here and there and that is it.  I did not color the book or the cloth underneath  and I think it turned out just fine! :)  I added one of the many sentiments in this set and then layered and stitched my oval.  




And there is that incredible detail that Marcella is famous for.....isn't that image positively dreamy?!  The rest of the card came together quickly with a few die cut layers and a bit more patterned paper and stitching.  The ribbon, twine, and button add a little something sweet to finish it off.  I did use my Krylon Gold Leafing pen (it was getting lonely...lol)  to edge out one of the die cut layers.  Oh, one last little tip when you have a round or oval card shape....you can take your scissors and trim a teeny bit off the back of your card base bottom to make it level.  You will never notice it and it keeps your card from leaning when it is displayed.  :)

So that is all for my card today, but I know you have got to be itchin' to get a peek at what else this set has.....and you are in luck, because my incredibly talented Bloom Brigade sisters have several a-mazing cards to show you!  I know this to be true because a) they are awesome and b) I have already seen some of them and trust me when I say, they are going to blow your socks off!  ;)  So, have fun hopping around, leave a little love while you are there, and then join us tomorrow for Day 2 of Power Poppy's April Release!  I can't wait for you to see what's next!!!!  Until then, take care!
