Hi there everybody! I hope you have had an awesome week. It has certainly been a busy one around here, but I did want to share a card I made with Power Poppy's new stamp set Dynamic Duos: Glads and Gerberas for this week's challenge on the Power Poppy blog. Are you going to be our next "Peep of the Week"?
This set has some super sweet sentiments with it and I just couldn't resist using the "Sending Love" sentiment! Let me show you what I did.....
When I saw that sentiment, I thought it would be fun to have a "mail" theme with it....so, I made a postage stamp complete with the cancellation mark! I used some really bright and cheery papers to go with these darling gerberas. My image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on to white card stock, colored with Copics and then die cut out. I used a little distress ink to sponge around the image and then stamped my sentiment, then the cancellation marks. Next, I used my Krylon gold leafing pen to edge out the image panel and tied a little ribbon across the bottom. Then, I backed the image with a die cut postage edge panel and popped it up with some dimensionals. The rest of the card is a few layers of card stock and patterned papers with some stitching and a little scoring and sanding to add an edge detail.
Those gerberas really make me smile! Don't you think they are a happy flower? :) They definitely look like they are "Sending Love"! :) So, that is all for my card today but you have got to see what my oh so talented Bloom Brigade sisters have created for you viewing pleasure today. Take a hop around, make sure you leave them a little blog love, and then come join us for this week's Friday challenge at Power Poppy. The only requirement this week is to use a Power Poppy image.....how simple is that?! I can't wait to see what you create! Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you back here soon. Until then, take care! :)
