Super Bowl, Release and a gift

Before I get to today's creation I have one thing to say.......

~~~~GO HAWKS~~~~

Woot Woot! Super bowl today!!!! Now if you recall, last year I was NOT cheering for the SeaHawks. You can read about my little slip of the tongue HERE. This year, not only am I cheering for the Hawks I would LOVE a repeat of last years game THIS YEAR! If I have any wish today it would be that Wilson beats the pants off ole pretty boy Brady! hee hee   You know my love of Brady and all. NOT....  It is all fun and games girls... No need for any smack talking. ;-)  Good luck to both teams, and for a fair calling no deflating game.  hee hee  You knew I had to put that in there! woot woot!!!!  Anyways.... back to the regular program.....

Welcome to Power Poppy's Release Day!!! All the stamp sets are available NOW at the Power Poppy Store!

 Here is my creation using Potted Primroses. This is a box with a fold over case to hold the goodies inside. The original design is by Liz Walker, she has several different versions and sizes if you look through her blog. I created my own Primroses Box for you today using the new Potted Primroses. I LOVE how this turned out! So cheerful, makes me smile.

 The tiny flower in the set is easy peasy to cut out and around. I cut between each of the petals and used my little ball to make it puff out. Then added pearls to the centers of each one. The scripture is from Glory that is stamped and layered on Spellbinders Decorative labels die. I want to make like 10 more of these boxes now! LOL  I might just have to make a few for the girls.  ;-)

Big Scripts

Welcome to Power Poppy's Day 4 of the February release. Today we are showing Big Scripts!

They say go big or go home right? How about Big Scripts! I have for you a sweet baby card  today. This actually came together fairly quick as the frame was already die cut from another creation so I went with it. I do like to use the negatives from die cuts as frames and this was perfect for a baby card.

The matching Spellbinders Adorning Labels Twenty Five was perfect to frame the inside of the negative frame and stamp my congrats sentiment. Added a ribbon bow with a tiny button center and voila! An easy peasy baby card.

How about some Good Thinking?

Welcome to Power Poppy's February release. We are on Day 2, head over to the PP blog if you missed the start! So sit back, relax and enjoy the creations from the Bloom Brigade!

This is a different Valentine for me as it has rugged edges. ooohhhaaahhh. hee hee I have not distressed edges on my cards in ages. The tool actually feel out of a drawer when I went looking for something else so I figured hey why not?!?  I distressed all the layers but the vellum Nested tags Die-Light or the Nested Hearts Die-Light. Stamped the True Love sentiment from Good Thinking: Love Notes on a tag and added a button and twine bow to the edge. Voila!

Orchids Rock

Welcome to Power Poppy's February release. We have some wonderful sets to show you over the next 5 days. Yes I said 5 days, which means 5 stamp sets! Woot Woot!! So sit back, relax and enjoy the creations from the Bloom Brigade! 

My creation today is rather simple as I let the Orchids Rock and the dies do all the hard work for me.  :-) I stamped the Orchids on white card stock, colored with Copics and then delicately cut around each of the blooms and stems. Added dimensionals to the back so they would pop off the card.

The base of  my card is framed using Spellbinders Adorning Labels Twenty Five die cut in a rich purple card stock. The blue polka dotted matting is using Labels Twenty Five. Wrapped some lace trim and purple ribbon around the bottom and adhered to the card front. The You Got This sentiment tag, a few sequins and voila!

  • Every link counts as one entry in our monthly drawing for a FREE STAMP SET OF CHOICE!

Now for my creation today. Went for a masculine sorta Valentine today. Slate grey, white and red were the colors I thought that would work. I kept the embellishments to a minimum although I have to say my husband doesn't mind too much.  :-)  I wanted a few roses so I have one for the outside with a lattice window into the inside sentiment. I have a tutorial on how I created the Lattice Window if you want to create your own. Very easy and is a cool look. 

This rose is called La Vie En Rose and is part of our new Instant Garden Digital release every month. Beautifully drawn by Marcy and so much fun to color. I have the added sentiment version on the inside for you below. I love how this turned out and I know that my husband will to. The frame is with Spellbinders Label Twenty five die. I can't find the lattice die on the site, so maybe its discontinued or I just need to look harder.  :)  Any lattice die would work. Easy Peasy today. Hope you can play along this week.

Dramatic Thank you

Good morning! Was in a dramatic mood with this one today. I love the black, red and white combo and had not created with that in a while so I went for it. I love the boldness of the red and black don't you? 

This is Dynamic Duos Peonies and Tulips that is stamped on white card stock. I colored with Copics and red's are not always friendly to me. However this one they may have done the ticket for me, what do you think? I wanted the fun Tiny Hearts Pocket Page for the back panel and the black and white polka dots paper. I thought they went well together. Wrapped some red lace trim and black ribbon tied into a bow. Final touch the ever so addictive sequins and voila! Enjoy your day!
