Happy Power Poppy Friday!













Hello there and a very happy Friday to you!  I hope things are going well in your little corner of the world.  Have you got anything crafty planned for the weekend?  How about getting in on Tuesday's Power Poppy Challenge Hues to Use?  Read all about the details including how you can win a chance to guest design!  Yep, guest design!  Make sure you check it out!  :)  I just had to play along for today's post...you'll see why in a sec....;)














Now let me just say that any color combination with red, black, and white is definitely going to get my attention.  After all, those are the colors of my beloved Georgia Bulldogs!  And in just a matter of a couple of months, I will be spending my Saturdays watching them play.....oh, how I love game days!  Go DAWGS!!  

Ok, so getting back to cards here....I chose to use the Poppies set for my red, black, and white color combination.  





I stamped my image twice so I could fussy cut a few of the blooms and the vase and paper piece it to my image panel.  I colored everything up with Copics and added some Ranger Glossy Accents to my vase.  My card is just a couple of patterned papers and a black card stock base.  This card measures 4 1/8" square.





































Don't you just love this image?  That vase and those blooms are just so stunning....Marcella really packed in the detail!  Talk about some power poppies!  ;)





So that is all for my card today, but make sure you check out the lovely creations compliments of some of my Bloomie sisters....and leave a little blog love while you are there!  :)  I thank you so much for you visit today.  Here is wishing you a wonderful weekend and I hope you can stop by again soon.  Until then...take care!

Happy Power Poppy Friday!
















Hello there and a very happy Friday to you!  I have a super quick post to share with you today featuring Power Poppy's new for June Power & Spark challenge.  This month's hostess is the amazingly talented and super sweet Julie Koerber!  You can read all of the details here.





Is that not the cutest challenge idea?  :)  So for my card, I ended up using three different stamp sets...Dynamic Duos: Glads and Gerberas, Nice Things to Say, and for my little bee image, Burst of Kindness.




I started by stamping my gerbera image, die cutting my rectangle and coloring it in with Copics.  Next I stamped my sentiment, sponged on some distress inks and tied a bit of string around the panel.  I also added some shimmer with my Wink of Stella clear brush pen.

Next, I trimmed some card stock and patterned papers, did some stitching, added some sponged distress inks and assembled all to my card base.  This card measures 3 1/2" x 5" .  Lastly, I added my image panel with some foam dimensionals.






I just love this image!!  It is such fun to color....that Marcella really knows her way around a bloom, doesn't she?  :)  Here's one last view....



So that is all for my card today, but some of my Bloomie sisters have created some beauties for your Friday inspiration.  Make sure you check them out and leave a little blog love while you are there.  Thank you so very much for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  Until next time, take care!  :)
