Hi there and welcome to my little corner of blog land. I hope all has been well with you! Do you have any fun summer plans? Any awesome crafty projects in process? I wanted to share a quick little card I made for this week's Power Poppy Friday and since the May Power & Spark Challenge deadline is drawing near, I wanted to play along again (gotta love fussy cutting)! :) Have you been able to enter one of your creations for this fun challenge? You can read all of the details here and we would love it if you could play along with us....AND there will be a prize.....just sayin'. So, lemme show you what I made......
Is that not the prettiest primrose image ever? It is from the Potted Primroses set. I thought it would be fun to make a bloom shaped card for these beauties, and I have to say.....they do seem to look right at home. :) Now, to make this work, while I was fussy cutting my blooms a few of them had to take one for the team (I know, but it had to be done) so it would fit on my card but I still think it turned out ok. My card base shape and layers are from Spellbinders' Blossom Three set and I also used a Spellbinders Standard Circles die for the sentiment circle. I die cut my layers from patterned papers, sanded, inked and then stitched them together. Next I stamped my pretty primrose image with Memento's Espresso Truffle ink, colored it with Copics, fussy cut it out minus a few of the blooms, added shimmer with a Wink of Stella Clear pen, adhered pearls in the flower centers and attached it to my assembled card with foam dimensionals. The sentiment is from the Simply Camellias set and fits perfectly cozied up to those primroses. The seam binding and button were added before I put my layers on my card base or added the primrose image for a little extra something. :)
GAH, those darling blooms just make me smile! Just the thing to brighten someone's day and send a little bloom love, don't you think? I am also seriously crushin' on Marcella's font mix with this sentiment.....oh so sweet! I took one more photo from the side so you could see the layers a little bit better....
So are you ready to get to fussy cuttin' and make your own creation? Well, you still have a wee bit of time left, but you'd better hurry! OH, and make sure you check out what some of my incredibly talented Bloom Brigade sisters have created for your inspiration today.....I have seen some of them already and let me just say.....WOW....you are in for a treat! So, I guess that is all for me today, but I will be back soon with some more Marcella goodness......the June release images are incredible and I cannot wait for you to see!! :) Until next time, take care and thanks so much for stopping by!
