Rocking Blooms ~ Power Poppy

Hello!!!!!  I am so ready for this weekend, and I hope you are ready to see a new Power Poppy card I made using one of the new Va-Va-Valentine digi images.  This fantasticly adorable set has 6 super fun images, along with four sentiments that you can include with them.

I chose to use the "You Totally Rock" image all by its lonesome...cause says it all!!  Isn't it so fun?  Marcy is so creative and clever!!  Her designs always inspire!!

Oh, I should mention, that I didn't have cardstock in the right color blue to match my radio, so I just colored some X-Press It cardstock strips with the B04 Copic and voila...the perfect match.

Copics:  B06, B04, B02, B00, B000, B26, R89, 37, 35, 32, RV17, RV14, RV13, RV10, T8, T6, T4, T2, T0

That's it for my post today.  For some more inspiration, stop by the following Bloom Brigade Blogs:

Rosé All Day ~ Power Poppy Digital

Happy Monday!!!  I usually only post on Friday, but Marcella has a new, incredible digital floral collage image, and the Bloom Brigade was invited to participate today.  How could I resist this?  She's calling it Rosé All Day, and it's available for purchase right now!!!  

Power Poppy is starting something new this year.  Each month, we're going to feature a "color story".  It could be monochromatic, or a certain color family.  And this month, we're focusing on flowers that are naturally red, pink or white.  Don't worry are not limited to these colors.  You are welcome to let your imagination soar.  This is just an inspiration; a starting point.  I chose to keep most of my colors in the red/pink family.  I added some neutrals (browns and grays) to the brushes, and of course, the bees are yellow.  ;)  I also added some sparkle to the bee wings with the Clear Wink of Stella pen.  It's subtle, but if you click on the picture below, you should be able to see it better.

Also...we have some really exciting news to share.  Kathy Racoosin will be featuring Rosé All Day on the first day of her January 15th - Feb 15th  30-Day Coloring Challenge.

Blue/Silver Wedding Cake ~ Power Poppy

Happy Friday!!!  I don't know about you, but I've really been enjoying this month's Power and Spark Challenge to use the new Card Maps sketches by Page Maps!  I had a nephew get married right after Christmas and their colors were navy blue and silver.  I added a pop of red was only a couple of days after Christmas.  I just had to.  ;)
Anyway, I used one of the Card Maps sketches, Power Poppy's Dream Wedding Clear stamp set, some beautiful Kaisercraft dp and my Copics to make this sweet wedding card.  I also added a bit of sparkle...I mean, it is for a celebration, so of course sparkle is a necessity.  

Copics:  C7, C5, C3, C1, C00, B97, B95, B93, B91, BG75, BG72, BG70, R39, R37, R35

We're teaming up with PageMaps!! ~ Power Poppy

Hello creative friends!! Happy 2018!! I hope your year is off to a great start!! I truly have no complaints...yet. ;)

I am so excited to share my Power Poppy card for today!!  And, since it's a new month, we have a new Power and Spark Challenge!

For this month's Power & Spark Challenge, we're asking you to "Grab A Map," and get in on some Power Poppy Fun! We've teamed up with's CardMaps to showcase 10 new sketches featuring some of Power Poppy's fabulous stamp sets. You can find all ten sketches along with design team samples HERE  The sketch I used is to the left.  

So grab a map, use it to spark a little cardmaking creativity and then, link your creation up HERE . If you play along, you'll be in the running to win a $50 Shopping Spree to the Power Poppy Shop!

 Now, for the details of my card. 

I used two Clear Power Poppy Stamp sets:  Pure Prairie Spirit and Dynamic Duos: Peonies and Tulips ("wishing" sentiment).  I cut around the butterfly and a portion of the flower and leaves and diecut it using a Long Classic Rectangle die (Spellbinders).  I used a variety of other dies for some framing and strips too.  

Lastly, the image was colored with Copics.
That's it for my project today.  Be sure to check out the following blogs for some more sketch and card inspiration:
