Created to Create by Power Poppy

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! I’m back today with a new project featuring the Created to Create Digital Stamp from Power Poppy. It’s wintry outside, but I’m ready to color spring flowers and this image fit the bill.

I couldn’t wait to color those daffodils and they set the color palette for the rest of the image. Clearly my excitement was in marked contrast to my late night coloring partner, who dozed off while I was picking out markers.

Although it was tempting to use pure yellow tones for the daffodils, I decided to select shades from the YG color family. I wanted to be able to transition smoothly from the leaves and base of the flowers to the petals and so I used moved from YG03 to YG00. I added a little Y02 to brighten the petals overall as well as R22 to provide a little more contrast.

Springtime Love by Power Poppy

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! I’m back today with a new project featuring the Springtime Love clear stamp set by Power Poppy. I think this was the first Power Poppy stamp set that I purchased – primarily because I loved this image – but somehow I’m only just getting around to coloring it!

There’s lots of small details in this image, but don’t let that deter you from giving this one a try. Just take it slowly, one flower at a time. Believe me – it’s well worth the effort. For the layout, I kept the color scheme simple, but used a variety of dies and an embossing folder to add texture.

That’s all for today! I’m prepping cards for upcoming classes so stay tuned!

Holly Golightly by Power Poppy

Holly Golightly by Power Poppy

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! How are you coming along with your holiday cards? Holiday shopping? Decorating? Or shouldn’t I ask? As for myself – no comment.

Yes, I’m still making holiday cards so I’m back today with another featuring the Holly GoLightly clear stamp set by Power Poppy.

I stamped the image with Amalgam Ink and colored it with Copic markers. I actually colored this image several weeks ago and just go around to making it into a card. Apparently, either I didn’t keep track of the colors or have since lost my notes (either is certainly possible).

Rowhouse Greetings | Holly Golightly by Power Poppy

For the lacy border, I cut a 1.75″ x 4.25″ strip of white cardstock and used one of the dies in the Lacey Edger 1 set by Pinkfresh Studio to cut the long edges. I recently purchased a Xyron Sticker Maker which I used here to adhere the lacy border die cut. I have a variety of adhesive sheets which I use to adhere intricate die cut, but some of my dies don’t cut cleanly through the layers. So the Xyron really made it easy to adhere the die cut instead of using a liquid glue. Since I’m short on storage space, I really hesitated to buy yet another craft gadget, but I’ve already put this one to use several times so I think it was a worthwhile purchase.
