Hi there friends and Happy Friday! Do you have anything fun planned for the weekend? There will be lots of cleaning and unpacking going on around here this weekend.....we have just finished up some renovations around here and are finally moving back in! Whew...what an adventure that has been! Anyways....it's Friday and you know what that means....another Power Poppy Peep of the Week Challenge!
Are you up for a little challenge? Why don't you c'mon and play along with us this week? For my card, I decided to use one of the adorable sets from the Happiest Holiday Collection, Bottlebrush Holiday. I used the "HO" stamp and also the sentiment stamp "Sending Holiday Cheer" from the set.....but, I only used a small portion of the sentiment stamp (two letters to be exact...lol). I wanted a Ho Ho Ho card but I wanted the card size to stay on the small side so I used the "H-O" letters from the word "Holiday". What do you think?
As you can see, I am trying out the CAS style again....channeling my inner Stacy Morgan, because I am still convinced one day CAS will become easier for me.....but not yet. That girl does CAS style like nobody's business! Oh well, there's always next time. I added a little stitching "sampler" detail across the bottom of my image panel because it looked a little bare and needed something to kind of ground it. I colored the main "HO" with copics and added a little sparkle with my Atyou Spica Clear glitter pen and added a little shine to the berries with some Ranger Glossy Accents. A button in the center of the wreath adds a little something unexpected. The rest of the card a few very simple layers and a bit of stitching.
I just love that sweet little wreath! Ok, so that is all for my little CAnsS card....(Clean and NOT so Simple) card. I wonder if that sweet Stacy could give me a few lessons....lol. Make sure you check out all of the gorgeousness from my Bloom Brigade sisters and leave a little love along the way. Then.....get cracking on your own Power Poppy masterpiece and link it up on the Power Poppy blog! Maybe YOU will be the next Power Poppy Peep of the Week! :) Hope you have a great weekend and until next time....take care!
