It's a wild Father's day

Happy Friday! One of the Father's day cards I created this year using Wild Mushrooms. Yes not your normal FD card but I liked how it turned out. Check out this cool picture I found of these Chanterelle mushrooms. I never really knew the colors they came in either.

The matching dies to Wild Mushrooms was perfect as I die cut them and popped them up on dimensionals above the circle. Added the single brad to the circle panel before adhering to the base panels.

This designer paper was in my stack and matched the colors I was needing. Pierced down the edge of the brown cardstock and sponged the embossed circles. Voila!

Made my day

Happy Wednesday. I made another one for the  Power and Spark challenge this month. It is all about Round and Round. Corners, card, shape, objects... just go with round. How about a little cheating and pre-round with a Spellbinders Die that has rounded corners? hee hee  I do have pearls on here that counts towards the round also. 

These blooms are from Abundant Petals that I have cut around and popped up on dimensionals. Some designer paper layered onto some white and added to the base. My heart border is from a retired WOJ die that I just adore. A few pearls and voila! Easy Peasy! 
Thanks for stopping by.

Fly dad

Here is one of the Father's day cards I had created this year. Yes I know I am late in sharing them but time has been limited on the computer lately. At least I am sharing them this year as I think last year I forgot to take pictures and post them at any point. ha ha  Anyways... 

This is Fly Guy that is printed and colored with Copic markers. I added some piercing around the base edges, the bottom of the image panel and the sentiment panel. Also for fun some water coloring along the bottom of the sentiment panel for fun. Sparkles to the water and voila!

Digital Blitz at Power Poppy

Good morning and welcome to Power Poppy's Digital Blitz! That sweet Marcy has gone and done it again with her creativity and has 11, yes count it 11 digital images created from her original clear stamp designs. Marcy has taken a few of the favorites in clear, did a little revamp and added some new sentiment for you digital lovers out there. How cool is she!!! Not to mention the generous sale she has going on right now. Be sure to see the PP Blog for all the details of these 11 new beauties, details and exclusions. Print, color and enjoy today! 

My creation is a summery feeling one that was pretty easy to create. Good thing to as this weekend was pretty crazy. The clear set called Sunny Harvest is a set that I love in itself and to have a new sentiment to go with either is great. The new Bring Home Some Sunflowers can be found HERE. I really wanted the sentiment at an angle and was having issues on figuring out how to do that. With the help of one of the boys, and two seconds later he has it all done for me. Kids I tell ya... Anyways moving on.  :-)

Something about sunflowers in pink and yellow makes me smile. Dug through my pile of designer paper and found this which was perfect. Die cut a heart border and added some gingham ribbon to the top. A few sparkly enamel dots and sparkles to the sunflowers and voila! 

Be sure to check out the Power Poppy Blog for all the new Instant Garden Digitals released today. Along with the list of 11 new digi's.

Gift for Ann

Morning, finally completed a birthday gift for my best friend Ann. When I saw this wood pallet like piece at the store I knew I wanted to give my hand at stenciling and adding some blooms. This statement was perfect as I made my first attempt. Mind you I need more work but I think it turned out great. 

The awesome blooms are from Abundant Petals and the matching dies. Yes I could of cut them all out but why when I have the dies. ha ha  Plus their is a LOT of blooms here. Each bloom is individual and popped up on dimensionals. Added lots of sparkle to them all that I tried to capture with the outside light but not so much. Hand delivered and she LOVED it! 

Here is a close up of the bottom flowers. One thing that does come to mind after this project and that is I need to take a class on how to arrange flowers. Not only for real flowers but the paper variety as well. hee hee  With my some what inexperience I think I did okay for the first round. Now I have another idea to get started on with the stenciling. Squeel... like I need another new hobby. HA!  Thanks for stopping by today.

Congrats Poppy

Good morning. Hopefully you had a good weekend. Today is the first day of summer at our house and boy are they excited.  ;-)  What shall we do with these long lazy days? How about a little coloring? Grabbed my Poppy XL and colored up a congrats card today. 

Now I have to say that normally when I decide to color with red shades I cringe. They never seem to turn out quite like I want or blend or whatever other reason. However this card actually I think turned out pretty good in red hues don't you? This poppy is so fun to color and I wanted it to be the focus so very little embellishments. A simple dippled border verses my scored border I tend to do. A few sequins and voila. Look ma... so sparkles even. hee hee  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your first week of summer. Woot woot!

Round two

Happy Friday! If you missed it last week over on the Power Poppy blog the June Power and Spark posted and it is round and round. Add rounded corners one, two or more, round shaped card or round objects. You get the idea. Play along and post your creation over on the PP Blog for your chance to win $50 in Power Poppy Bucks. 

My first creation was a round shaped card with round items, so today is all about the rounded corners. Well two corners to be exact and some buttons.  :-) This is Big Sexy Leaves for my card. I stamped the image and colored with various Copic markers. Rounded the two right corners and added a scallop edge in black cardstock to the left. Some textures to the base chocolate cardstock and then a few buttons for my sentiment flags. Voila!
