Happy Power Poppy Friday~August 25th

Hello there and welcome!  I hope you have had a wonderful week!  I have a little card to share for Power Poppy's Friday inspiration today featuring the Prairie Cheer stamp set.

And when I say little card....I do mean that!  This card measures a petite 2 3/4" x 4".  I started by stamping my image and die cutting it out.  After coloring it up with Copics, I added a little shimmer with a Wink of Stella clear brush pen and some ink spatters with a Stampin' Up! tool.  I stitched a bit of gingham paper onto some purple card stock, tied on a bit of ribbon and then attached the panel to my card base.  After rounding the corners, I added my image panel with foam dimensionals.  I used a hole punch to notch out a little spot on  my image panel before adhering it so it could snug up to my bow.

I think this sweet coneflower is somethin' else, how about you?  Marcella really packed the detail in this sweet bloom!  :)

So that is all for my card today but some of my amazingly talented Bloomie sisters have created some real beauties for your Friday inspiration....make sure you leave a little blog love when you visit.  I thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you will pop in again soon.  Until then, take care.

Happy Power Poppy Friday~August 11!

Hello there and a very happy Friday to you!  I hope this day finds you well.  This girl is so very happy for the weekend, how about you?  :)

I thought I would share a card featuring one of Power Poppy's new stamps Dahlia XL.  

Isn't she a beaut?  One h-u-g-e and glorious dahlia to color to your heart's content...what could be better?  ;)  I am quite certain that if the botanical world had superheroes, this dahlia would be one of them!  :)

For my card, I started by die cutting a panel from white card stock, stamped my image and my sentiment, and then stitched some patterned paper to the bottom.  After coloring my image with Copics, I sponged some ink around, added some shimmer with a Wink of Stella pen and then adhered it to a card base.  Can't get much easier than that, right?  :)  This card measures 3 3/8" x 5".

Just when you think you've seen it comes another gorgeous bloom compliments of Marcella.  As always, this image was a complete joy to color!

And how about that sweet little sentiment, also from this set!
