Happy Power Poppy Friday~March 30th!

Hello there and welcome for another Power Poppy Friday!  I hope you have been doing well!  :)  I have a super quick post for today using Power Poppy's lovely Geraniums Take Two stamp set for my image and the Sunny Harvest stamp set for my sentiment.....

I started by stamping my image with Memento's Tuxedo Black ink and coloring with Copics.  Next, I used a die to cut out my image panel, stamped my sentiment, and tied on a bit of ribbon.  I stitched a couple of patterned papers together and adhered it to a card base.  After rounding the top corners, I adhered my image tag to my card.  

Let me tell you about the near catastrophe as I was adding the last little bit of coloring to my image.  One of my red markers was drying out so I thought I would take a minute to refill it.  I zipped right along refilling my marker and as I was adding the top back to the refill bottle it squirted red ink everywhere.  I cannot tell you how thankful I was that my newly colored image tag was spared but I am pretty sure I am going to be sporting red fingers for a while!  :)  Needless to say, the clean up took a little while and I am still thanking my lucky stars that it was not as bad as it could. have. been.....whew! :)

So that is all for my card today, but a couple of my incredibly talented Bloomie sisters have some lovely inspiration to share with you so make sure you check them out and leave a little blog love while you are there.  Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope to see you around again soon...until then, take care!

Happy Power Poppy Friday~March 16th!

Hello there and happy Friday to you!  How have you been?  It's been a little bit since my last post.  I am so happy to share a card I made for Power Poppy's Friday post using their amazing Azalea stamp set.  I can never thank Marcella enough for creating this stamp set!  I have been inspecting our azaleas in the yard and I am happy to report that there are lots of buds!  To get me thru until then, I thought I would color up some of Marcella's azalea blooms.

I used a stitched square die for my image panel, stamped the image with Memento's Tuxedo Black ink and then colored it up with Copics.  Next, I added some gold leafing around the edges with a Krylon 18KT gold leafing pen.  Lastly, I adhered the image to my card base layered with a bit of patterned paper.

Red azaleas were always my Daddy's favorite.  We have lots of azaleas in our yard in pinks, whites, and purples but we also have one red azalea.  It was actually there when we bought our house a number of years ago, but I like just having the one....kind of like a special one just to honor him, don't you think?  :)  

So that is all for my card today, but some of my Bloomie sisters have some beautiful cards for your Friday inspiration.  Make sure you leave them a little blog love while you are there!  And hey, if you haven't seen Power Poppy's latest digital stamp really need to check it out!  You can see all of the details here.

I thank you so much for your visit and I hope to see you again soon.  Until then, take care!  :)
