#LoveWins ~ Power Poppy



I made a card today just for the fun of it!!  And I had a blast!!  Since the Christmas season is behind us now, I decided to make a Valentine card using Power Poppy's Good Thinking: Love Notes set.

I hauled out my Minc Machine and went to work.  This baby came together rather quickly and I think it turned out fabulous.  I have to mention that I had some help though...I used today's Splitcoaststampers Sketch designed by Power Poppy's very own, Ally.  You can find the sketch HERE.

Both sentiments were foiled using the Minc Machine, and I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the black panel.  I love the sweet little Photo Frame die from Jillian Vance Designs.  

That's it.  The sketch was an easy layout, which I thought was perfect for a masculine card.

Thanks for dropping by!!  I hope you are having a fabulous week!
  
  Happy Stamping!

Power Poppy Birthday Move the Soul Gift Bag

 

Hello creative friends!!  It's been awhile!!  Life has been busy as I'm sure many of yours has been also.  I'm excited to share a sweet Gift Bag I made for a dear friend of ours.  Since his birthday is in the month of December, I thought it would be fun to make it none Christmas to separate it from the Holidays.  

I used Power Poppy's Move the Soul set for the gift bag front.  It seems he and my husband think that one day they will each own a Harley and will take their adventures to the roads.  Silly boys.  Like that's ever going to happen.  LOL  But it's good to dream right?!?!  My Gift Bag Topper tutorial can be found HERE.

Christine has a thoughtful and fun Power and Spark Challenge this month.  Here is the challenge in her words:  

"The idea is to create something that will be a sweet treat for someone else (so think card, tag, hostess gift, etc) designed to help with those quick Christmas gifts."

I hope you'll get a chance to participate!!

That's it for today's project!!  I hope you are all safe from crazy weather, and are enjoying all this year's Holiday festivities!!

  Happy Stamping!
