Totally awesome

Happy Friday! I hope that your weekend is going to be totally awesome!  hee hee  Mine is going to be busy and fun at home cleaning closets. :-)   How about this Bowl of Beauty creation for you? Oh isn't it just fresh and fun!  Did you know it is another one that is on sale? t sure is so check it out! Actually check out the entire SALE Marcy still have going on at Power Poppy! Onto my creation...



Who doesn't like blue on all cards? I knew blue and purple hues were going to be my color choice so I went with it. This gingham paper was in the stash along with the die cut edge from another project so it was perfect. Colored the image with various Copic markers and scored around the border. A few scattered jewels and some sheet ribbon that I have had forever. Some sparkle and voila! Thanks for stopping by today.

Holiday Roses

Good morning. This is a card using Snowdrop and Tea roses, and don't forget this is still ON SALE. I was behind in my Christmas cards last year and I don't plan to be this year. Various Copic markers were used to color these roses. The designer paper is layered onto matching colors. 
  A little bit of texture to the blue panel with a new embossing folder that I got a few weeks back. Wrapped some twine around the layers. Sponged my sentiment circle and finished with sparkles and enamel dots. Voila! Thanks for stopping by.

Climbing Clematis for a friend

Friday it is and the last day of July. I can't even believe this summer let alone year, but I won't dive into that mood right now.  ;-)  How about some Climbing Clematis today?  This happens to be on sale right now so check it out. These are such pretty flowers and so much enjoyment to color them. Been feeling in a slump lately so I am happy to finally pull out of it a little with these guys. 


Pretty straight forward with this card. Colored the image with various Copic markers and added a die cut edge to the bottom of the panel. I then added another layer of white card stock to the base and some texture to the majority of the panel. Wrapped some colored twine around that layer and added to the base of the card. Finished off with my sentiment some sequins and sparkle. Voila!

Off the hook

Morning. Dusted off an old set that is no longer available for this card today. It is for a special person and I miss them greatly. Very easy design since I am feeling rather rusty lately. 


Colored the image with Copic markers and added a stitched die cut for the shape. My designer paper was the inspiration for the colors with a touch of pink. I can always color with blue hues for anything. hee hee  Added a button and some twine for the accent on the sentiment. Voila! Hope you have a wonderful week.

Juicy Berries

Happy Friday! These Juicy Strawberries were in the bin that I have colored long ago and I just never finished a card with them.  This turned out summery and cute I think and since it was already colored easy to put together.


A simple layer of the berries panel on some banana card stock. Then layered onto a die cut piece and some designer paper down the edge. Embossed the base layer and wrapped some twine. My sentiment from Go Wild and then some sparkles to finish it off. Voila!

Just for the girls today

How about some for the girls today? One of my favorite sets for the girls is retired but I still have the set used to be called Glamour Girls. A friend needed a few so I knew she was coming out. My first one was inspired by the designer paper that I got and finally am using. It is so soft, pretty and girlie I think. Used the fancy image in the set and colored her with copics. A stitched rectangle die and some layers of ribbon and lace trim. Sparkle on the hat to finish her off. 

Next up is the more teen fun like colors with black and yellow polka dots. She is so FUN! Adored this set from day one I tell you what. Added some scallops and lace trim along the side of this one. A few primas that my sweet friend Pat made me long ago. Yep still have some and using them only for special cards. 


Next is with the same girl but red and black with a few punched flowers added to this one. This sentiment is perfect and I added some fancy ribbon lace that I have had forever to the die cut edge. 


I think all three turned out great considering I feel rather rusty at creating lately and coloring. Well off to do some more creations. Thanks for stopping by.  ;-)
