Climbing Clematis ~ Power Poppy


Hello crafty friends!!  I have been MIA for quite some time and I apologize.  I traveled to the Midwest to visit both of my kids and I have been working on some home projects and gifts also.  But I'm happy to be stamping again!!  

One of my nieces is getting married in a couple of weeks and her colors are blue, peach and lavender.  So, for her shower this weekend, I created a card using one of Power Poppy's newer digi images called Climbing Clematis.  Aren't those flowers stunning.  And Marcy added butterflies!!  *sigh*  The sentiment is from the clear stamp set Simply Camellias.

I added some Wink of Stella to the butterflies and flower centers, but my photo skills were lacking today.  Everything was colored with Copics.


My niece chose black/white for her kitchen accents so I thought it would be fun to make a wreath out of a variety of dishtowels and wash rags.  I was inspired by this pin from Pinterest: Hands On
I also included an Oven Mitt with utensils inside along with a serving platter inspired by this pin:  Pretty Mahem.

I love using Pinterest to help with fun gift-giving ideas! 



That's it for my projects today.  Check out the following Bloom Brigaders for some more Power Poppy inspiration.

Also, since it's the 25th of the month, Marcella has a fabulous...and I mean FABULOUS new digi image for y'all!!  It's called Glittering Glass Santa, and it's pure vintage gorgeousness!! Check out the Power Poppy Blog for the links to the gals with more projects to enable...I mean inspire you!!  ;)

Gift Giving with Power Poppy


 

http://powerpoppy.blogspot.com/
Hello creative friends!!  It's time for another Power Poppy Power & Spark Challenge, and Katie has come up with the nicest challenge possible.......because it's all about giving.  This is how she describes her challenge for this month:   This month’s Power & Spark challenge is all about giving.  We all know the paper crafting community has some of the biggest, giving hearts around so let’s celebrate that with “Gifts from the Heart”.  Show us your creative ways of gift presentations or a hand crafted gift….or both!  Try stamping  your own wrapping paper, decorate your own gift bag or tag, craft a gift set of note cards....you choose how to show your art and heart for a special someone.  Even though the holidays are just around the corner, any time is a great time for gift giving so this challenge is open for any occasion.

Years ago I put together a Gift Bag Topper Tutorial and I still love making them.  (Here's a LINK to a few more that I've made over the years.) So I thought I'd make a gift bag for a general occasion instead of a holiday like I normally do, using the newest Power Poppy Digi image Easy Breezy Coneflowers.  This duo is gorgeous and oh, so fun to color!  I colored them with Copics, diecut them with a Pierced Rectangle die and distressed the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  Below is a closer look at the detail Marcella has included in the image.



I added the coordinating sentiment on a little tag.  I love these dark rich, detailed papers.  I thought they were a fun contrast to the beautifully elegant, yet bold Coneflowers.


Here's a view of the top.  The paper I was using was only 6x6, so I added a panel to the top to lengthen it.

 
That's it for my project today.  Be sure to stop by the following Bloom Brigaders if you haven't already.  These gals really know how to use their creative side.
