Happy Power Poppy Friday with Daffodils!

Hi there and Happy Friday to you!  I hope this post finds you doing well!  Have you been getting any of the warmer than normal weather lately?  We sure have!  It's not even March and tulip trees are blooming everywhere and the daffodils are up...which inspired me to pull out Power Poppy's Daffodils stamp set for my card this week.  I decided to make a round scalloped shape card and use colored card stocks to mimic the colors I used in my daffodils.  

I started by stamping the daffodil image and my sentiment from the  Bloomin' Wonderful stamp set with Memento's Tuxedo Black ink on a circle card stock die cut.  After coloring my image with Copics, I added some shimmer with a clear Wink of Stella pen and some Martha Stewart glitter, then edged my die cut panel with a Krylon 18KT Gold Leafing pen.  I sanded it a teeny bit afterwards to age the finish somewhat  then added some pearls.  The rest of my card consists of several layers that I die cut using different shapes to give the card some texture and depth.  I sponged on some Papertrey Ink Chamomile and Chai inks to age the papers and then assembled all of the layers, using foam dimensionals to pop up some of them.

I believe I managed to capture a little of the glitter in some of the photos.  I can never get over all of the little extra details Marcella puts in to each of her images....truly amazing and always a dream to color! :)

Happy Spring to you!  I hope you have been fortunate enough to have some pretty weather in your area...even if it is a little early!  

Well, that is all for my card today, but several of my amazing Bloomie sisters have some Friday inspiration just waiting for you to see, so make sure you check them all out and leave a little blog love while you are there.  So glad you could stop by for a visit and I hope you find your way back here again soon.  It won't be long until Power Poppy's March stamp release begins....Marcella has some incredible things coming!  Hope you have a great weekend and until next time, take care!  :)

  2. Ooo circle card! Great idea to try a different frame for that stamp. Gosh, I just love grape hyacinths. We just don't see them in SoCal. Wonderful card :)

  3. What sunny, happy, fun colors and card design, Katie! Love this beautiful spring mix. So lovely to see this morning. Barely 10 am here and it's dark with freezing rain and snow. What the heck?

  4. This is super sweet. I went to Lowes the other day and walked through the garden section. All the spring colors were so vivid...just like these. Lovely Katie and the scalloped shape makes it extra cute. Hugs!

  5. Oh, Katie, this is spring all right! I LOVE it and love the shape! Beautiful idea to use this gorgeous spring image and colored perfectly! Love the DP and die shapes and always LOVE your Krylon "touch" to finish it off...along with the lovely pearls! Delightful, sweet friend! Hugs! xoxo
