Luminous Bouquet

I’m still playing catch up with all the new digital releases from Power Poppy this week. This is the last one that I needed to color (yes – needed!). Just look at all those beautiful flowers and leaves! To be honest, this image was a little overwhelming when I looked at it the first time because, well — LOOK AT ALL THOSE FLOWERS AND LEAVES! But I just took it one flower at a time, making one color decision at a time. I matched the colored image with a rainbow plaid from Lawn Fawn and a scalloped die from Tonic and by the end it all came together.

Old Fashioned Hollyhocks

Are you loving all the new Power Poppy digital stamp releases this week? I loved the new Old Fashioned Hollyhocks digital stamp set so I had to color it. I cropped the image and offset it to the left so that I could add a sentiment from the Hyacinth Bulb in Glass digital stamp set. I paired the image with a black and white striped paper from Echo Park Paper Company, resulting in a clean and simple card suitable for any occasion.

This one is headed for my Etsy shop so stop by and take a look!

Everything Stops for Walkies

I’m over on the LDRS Inspiration Blog today with another project featuring the stamp Everything Stops for Walkies by All Dressed Up.

My cards lately have been really pared down in terms of a papers and embellishments. Then I saw this card by Faye Wynn-Jones and loved its simplicity. I knew that I had to try it for myself. The All Dressed Up stamps are perfect because for a CAS card because they really can stand alone as a simple, but elegant statement for a card front. Add a couple of sequins (pink of course) and make a fashion statement!

Power Poppy: Bubble and Fizz

Today is Marcella’s birthday so we are celebrating with three new digital releases from Power Poppy! This is one of the new releases – Bubble and Fizz – which was quick and easy to put together. The image features the Australian Golden Wattle (Acacia pycnantha) which as you’ll notice, I’ve colored up in shades of pale red, turning it into the red-flowered form of Acacia leprosa. 

Be sure to visit the Power Poppy blog today and get some inspiration from the rest of the Power Poppy team!

Felt with the Heart

Everytime I go to a scrapbook store, I come home with more paper. Beautiful florals, petite polka dots, plaids — you name it and it’s probably in my stash. Some of it is so pretty that I almost hate to cut it. But the advantage of accumulating so much paper is that you have more opportunities for mixing and matching colors and patterns across different companies. Here I managed to match paper from Lawn Fawn, Echo Park Paper Company, and Core’dination and while I’m sad to use up some familiar papers, I now have room to spare for some new favorites.

Supplies

Paper: Neenah Solar White 110#; Wild Flower Line Dance from the Let’s Polka in the Meadow Collection by Lawn Fawn; Mom Words from the Beautiful Mom Collection by Echo Park Paper Co.; Core’dinations card stock in Powder Blue
Stamp: Forever & Always by Penny Black
Dies: Fancy Rectangles & Layers Die Set (*) by Creative Basics; Fancy Squares & Little Things Die Set (*) by Creative Basics; Grace Build-A-Card Die Set (*) by Creative Basics
