Hello, hello, helloooo! I hope this lovely Friday finds you well! Things are going well here. I don't know if you noticed the new little blog banner to the right here announcing Power Poppy's new stamp release next week....but it is there! How adorable is that teeny little snippet of all the wonderful new Marcella goodness to come?! Just you wait.....I don't know how she does it, but she does! Until then, can I share a little card I made for today's Friday inspiration with you? :)
This card features the sweet stamp set Potted Primroses.
For this card, I stamped my image using Memento's Tuxedo Black ink on to some white card stock. Next I colored my image in with Copics and then die cut it out. After adding a little distress ink, some shimmer with my Wink of Stella clear brush pen and a few dots of white with a glaze pen I set it aside to assemble my card base. The card base itself is a die cut but the next white layer is actually the negative from another die cut I used on a different card. I thought it went well here so I used it! The blue layer I just trimmed to fit under my image panel. I used some foam dimensionals to pop up one of the layers and also one of the primroses for a little extra dimension. This card measures just shy of 4" square.
*Ok, true confession time here....that popped up bloom was the first one I colored and I didn't care for how it turned out, so instead of ditching the entire panel, I just re-stamped, fussy cut, and recolored that bloom. Sometimes the mistakes really make for a great opportunity to improve the design, don't you think? ;)
Now that is quite a cheery hello! Marcella really captured this darling bloom's detail beautifully. She makes me happy just looking at her. :)
So that is all for my card today, but some of my Bloomie sisters have some pretties for you to see for your Friday inspiration so make sure you check them out and leave a little blog love while you are there. OH, and if you haven't checked out the new challenges on the Power Poppy blog, you really should! Allison Cope has a dandy new July Power & Spark Challenge and Julie Koerber's new weekly Hues to Use Challenge features the first guest designer, Lisa Johansen! Then, please won't you stop back by next week for the new stamp release festivities? I sure will be looking forward to your next visit and until then, take care!
