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!

  1. Awesome card! Colors are very pretty, thanks for sharing and have a great Easter weekend.

  2. Gorgeous, Katie, with your usual stellar coloring! I'm so glad your pretty tag was spared from disaster, but what a mess! These things happen. Love the warmth of this with the gingham and pretty flower print. Happy Easter weekend!

  3. Oh, sweet Katie, I LOVE your card and agree that your coloring is stellar! I love this beautiful geranium, and what a stunning card with the layout and the gingham (always love gingham)! WOW! I can just imagine the horror on your face when that red reinker squirted everywhere! Eek! Thankfully your image was spared, and perhaps people at work thought you were a surgeon for a day or two? Haha! Anyway, thanks for sharing another gorgeous card, my friend! Hope you are seeing all the wonderful signs of spring! Hugs and love! xoxo
