Power Poppy Peeps Challenge with Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine

It's time once again for the Power Poppy Peep of the Week challenge, and I hope to see you participate.  It's always a delight to see what others come up with!!  Click HERE for all the details.

Do you ever notice that your "masculine" stash of cards is never quite as high as your "feminine" stash?  Is it even pretty close to non-existent? Well, my stash is always close to dwindling to nothing, and thankfully I had the Power Poppy set Play Ball to help me replenish it since my son just celebrated a birthday.

I love this super fun set!  There are many possibilities with the sentiments, banners, collage, etc.  I chose to alternate the directions of the stitching and stamp 3 different sentiments on the banners and color them with Copics.  For the first banner, I had to be break up the sentiment in order to make it fit, so I put repositionable tape over the areas I didn't want ink, stamped the sentiment and repeated until I had my banner created.  Easy-Peasy, and it was a "hit" with my son...whew!!  That's it for my card...

Just in case you missed it, Power Poppy took center stage over at the Scrapbook and Cards  Today blog with their Card Cafe Thursday! And today, there's another surprise! Head on over to their blog HERE to the and see how YOU could win a $25 gift certificate to the Power Poppy Shop!

I, too, love this set for all the different things you can do with it! Love how you always make it look so rugged and manly or boyish. I'm sure your son did think it's very cool. Nope, never enough masculine cards in the stash!

Another total winner!! What a great job keeping the overall look and feel so cohesive, Tosh, with all the sentiments and lettering, this is just a skillful composition and downright cool card... I'm super impressed!! I'll bet your son was too! LOVE, marc!

What a super card for a guy! Yes, my feminine stash reaches the ceiling and the masculine one is totally nowhere. :-)
