Life is better with friends...


http://powerpoppy.blogspot.com/2015/04/its-pop-of-pastel-challenge.html
Hello friends!!  I have a CAS Power Poppy card to share with you today for this month's Power and Spark Challenge to use Pastels.  I was inspired by Leslie's stunning card HERE where she enlarged a portion of a digital image.  So I took the Gerbera Daisies digital image and enlarged the flower on the right and left half of it off the card.  I then colored it with a few Copics and added the sentiment from the digital Camellias set. 


That's it.  Nice and easy



Now, for some more inspiration, check out what these Bloom Brigaders have to share:
Copics:   YG05, YG11, YG01, Y00, C2, BG02, BG01, BG0000

Happy Stamping!!

Flowering Branches ~ Power Poppy


http://powerpoppy.com/products/flowering-branches
Hello friends!!  Prepare yourself for some gushing today.  Marcella has done it again!  That girl has no limits to her creativity!!  Her ideas are always fun, beautiful and inspirational, and this month's digital release is no different.  Aren't these Flowering Branches gorgeous?  She even included a few crabapples along with the blooms!!  Charming!  

I just colored the image with Copics after arranging the digital image in Word and printing it onto X-press It Blending cardstock.  I then adhered it to a diecut frame and a folded piece of burgandy Core'dinations cardstock.  Oh, and I added a few little pearls (Pizzazz Aplenty) too.

That's it for my project today.  Now, if you would like some more inspiration, check out these Bloombrigaders' Blogs:

Waltzingmouse Pajama Party


http://waltzingmouse.blogspot.com/
We're having a Waltzingmouse Pajama Party, and there are 4 fantastic inspirational challenges to get your creative juices flowing!  Check out the Waltzingmouse Blog for all the details on how you can participate.

I think today's card fits under two challenge categories:  Shower with Gifts and Gift Card it.
I put my tag on the card instead of leaving it separate, and used a variety of stamp sets along with the Stitched Tag die (Waltzingmouse): Little Darlings Images, Little Darlings Sentiments, Pinstripe and Zig Zag Backgrounders

I added the sweet little sentiment along the top to finish it off.  It's a horizontal sentiment from the Little Darlings Images set.  I just used some Ink Isolation (Tutorial) to put the words on top of each other.

I made my second card for the Bedtime Story sketch challenge and Old Pajamas using the nestie Very Vintage Labels No. 25.  I included images from two other WMS sets too:  You're Lovely and Big Day Additions for the sentiment.




Everything was stamped with Silvery Shimmer Delicata and embossed with Silver ep (Ranger).  The banner was made with tassels that I diecut using Banner Basics 2 (Spellbinders).



That about sums up today's projects.  Thank you so much for stopping by.

    
   Happy Stamping!

Power Poppy Pastel Primroses




http://powerpoppy.blogspot.com/2015/04/its-pop-of-pastel-challenge.html
Hello friends!  Once again, Friday has arrived, and that means a Power and Spark challenge over at Power Poppy.  This month, Ally is challenging us to use pastels.  I thought the Primroses, from the Potted Primroses set, would look lovely embossed in white and colored with a soft color palette.  I originally went literal and tried using pastels on kraft.  I liked the look but I decided instead to go more vintage.  Shocker isn't it.  ;)

I stamped the Primroses with Whisper White ink (SU!), embossed them with White ep (Ranger), and colored them with Tombows.  I used quite a few Dies and Punches and will list those at the end of the post.  The sentiment is from the set Dynamic Duos: Peonies and Tulips set.


 
Here's a closer look at the image.


That's it for me today, but you won't want to miss what the following Bloomers have to share.  These gals have some serious skills!

I hope you all have a most fabulous weekend.  I'm heading to the mountains to spend some precious time with some dear, dear stamping friends.  Excited doesn't even describe how I'm looking forward to it.

   Happy Stamping!
