B is for Birthday fun

Happy Friday! Have you played along in our Power and Spark challenge this month? Kathy is our host with a fun filled challenge called B happy! Check out the Power Poppy Blog HERE for details and linking up your creation!


This load of presents is so fun to color. They are from the set called Party Time! What a great set for birthday occasions. My designer paper was my colors of choice for this card. The enamel dots look like an olive green in the photo, yet they are grey in person. Could not get the camera for the life of me to work with me on that. ;-)  My presents are colored with Copic markers and some added sparkles to the bow, dots and the center present lid. Die cut a recipe shaped sea foam panel and added textures with swiss dots. Wrapped some lace trim and ribbon before it was secured to the base. My sentiment on the side and volia!

Hello friend


Afternoon! Stepped into the stamp room this morning for a little break time and thought I would color up some blooms. These are from Dynamic Duos Foxglove and Ranunculus stamp set. They are stamped on white card stock using Memento black ink and colored with various Copic markers. Very simple card with some designer paper layered onto more breezy colored card stock and layered on the white base. Some mesh ribbon with pink ribbon for the center. Die cut the image panel with Lil inkers stitched rectangles die and layered onto cotton candy cardstock. My sentiment in the corner and some jewels to finish it off. Voila! Now off to play in the sun! Have a wonderful afternoon. ;-)

Rosy you say

Rosy morning to you all.  My creation today is a very clean and easy peasy card with this beautiful single rose from Everything' Even Rosier stamp set. 


Only three roses stamped around the base left corner as you can see. You are probably wondering why didn't she mask the one and make them closer. Well... I thought of that after the second one was stamped already. ha!  So much for thinking ahead. It looks fine this way spaced out, but might have to make a second attempt with them being masked closer together. Each bloom is colored with Copic markers. A simple yellow base for the card and a ribbon tied at the top into a little bow. My petals have a suduko gel pen added for highlights in the corners, but hard to see in the photo. See, easy peasy! Hope you have a fabulous day!

You are so kind

Check it out! The new digi from the Instant Garden at Power Poppy is here and it is called Sunshine of My Life. Isn't this just awesome? Marcy has some thoughts she is sharing behind this newest work of art she has created for us. Head on over to the Power Poppy Blog for all the details. 


I printed a few of these and have been enjoying coloring all the different ways I can think of. You should google Sunflowers and see all the different shades of hybrids they have. Not to mention when coloring on paper you can color whatever colors you want.  ;-)

This is a 5x5 size card since I wanted this to be the focus on the card over all. A few simple accents with the mesh ribbon behind the image panel and some sequins in the corners. I do have sparkle added to the petals. Voila!

Puppy love

Good morning! How about some puppy love today? With summer here, Ranger sure does get a lot more loving from the boys since they are home all day. He acts like he is one of the boys right along side them when they are playing games or running around playing football. It is very cute. He does know how to play football in fact. He loves it and so do we. Anyways.... 


Dusted off this sweet guy from Whipper Snapper called Good News Puppy. He is stamped on white card stock and colored with various Copic markers. I then die cut his panel with Lil Inkers Stitched rectangle die. This plaid paper was perfect for the feel I wanted for this card. Used some hardware to tie off my ribbon, both of which I have had FOREVER! Stamped a paw print and popped it up on dimensionals. Voila! Hope you have a wonderful day!

Wedding Congrats

Good morning! Was your weekend relaxing and fun? Hopefully it was great and you are ready for a fun filled week, it is summer you know.  ;-)  I was able to get into the stamping room this weekend and happy to say it was great. We have a wedding coming up here soon so my first card was easy using Dream Wedding


Wedding cards to me are always so classy in a black and white theme with a touch of red for elegance. The cherries on this cake were perfect for the red with some added red die cut flowers. The wedding cake has sparkles added to it as all cakes need some sparkle. My sentiment tag at the top with a matching red die flower and some flourished white paper accents. Voila! Have a wonderful day!

Chocolate Lasagna

This long weekend was great and an opportunity for me to try a dessert recipe that I pinned. I pin a lot of desserts yet never seem to make them as much as the main courses I pin. My plan is to attempt more of the desserts!  ;-) This is Chocolate Lasagna


Now the photo doesn't look as awesome as the blogger that posted her's, however I bet you it tasted just as good. hee hee  You can find the recipe at Jaimelyn at I heart naptime HERE. The boys wanted more chocolate chips on top than the recipe initially called for hence the layer you see. I just scrapped half them off and ate the rest. It was DELICIOUS! Great for the BBQ we were at and its a cold dessert so even better with the hot weather. Thought I would share another foodie post. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Christmas Mini's

Good morning! Hopefully you are all enjoying the extra long weekend and relaxing. I know that I have enjoyed it so far with friends and a few BBQ's already and its only Sunday. hee hee  The Dirty Dozen July Christmas is up and it is called Christmas Mini. Use those tiny stamps or accent stamps and create a card. Or make a mini card 3x3 and have fun with it. Hope you can play along! 


My tiny holly sprigs are from Merry Littles that I stamped on a circle die cut and colored with Copic markers. Then die cut another shaped die in kraft for behind the sentiment panel and circle. Layered some designer paper over the shaped frame. Wrapped some crochet ribbon and tied a bow with dark green ribbon. Added the final touches of some jewels and stickles. Voila! Hope you have a wonderful and safe Fourth of July!

When I created this the person I had in mind is about 14 years old and loves polkadots. It took me two days to complete this card, not because its complex but too many other things going on. I know she is going to adore this though. See more buttons, told you they were popular with my release this time. ha ha  Both the sentiment and the cake are die cut using a tag die just for the heck of it. A simple scallop edge along the bottom and some sparkles to the berries for the final touch. Easy Peasy!

Day Four Midsummer Stunner Collection

Good morning and welcome to Power Poppy's Midsummer Stunner Collection. That's right we have some gorgeous sneak peeks for you of seven, I repeat seven stamp sets. Whohooo!!!
These seven sets will all be fully available tomorrow in the PP store. Have you been enjoying all the sneak peeks so far? I thought so.  ;-)  Today in our Midsummer Stunner Collection are Tea in the Garden and Party Time on some of the blogs today.


ACK!! This set is totally fun and so cheery, I adore it all! This is Tea in the Garden and such a delight. My card is using the lemonade pitcher that is colored with Copic markers. There is liquid glass added to the jar and pitcher yet it didn't come out to well in the photo. A simple designer paper background and a few buttons down the edge. My Spellbinders A2 die cut along the bottom and voila!

Once again Marcy has some wonderful insight behind Tea in the Garden over on the Power Poppy Blog for you to read. And remember the blog hop is tomorrow and all stamps available to order in the PP Store.
