Sunny Winter Bouquet

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have some fabulous plans for the weekend.  Me, I plan to create and colour all weekend!

Now, let’s talk some Power Poppy!  This week I decided to pull in some fun, sunny colours and create.

My card today features the beautiful bouquet from the Bloomin’ Wonderful stamp set.
Copics: YR12, YR15, YR16, YR65, YR18, E08, Y02, YG01, YG03, YG95, V000, V01, BV23, BG000, E43

To set off my winter bouquet, I created a fun shaker card filled with silver micro-beads.

Power Poppy: Winter Blooms

Happy Friday the 13th everyone!  Yup… today’s my lucky day!  My Mom is a Friday the 13th baby so for me, it’s a lucky one!

This month over on the Power Poppy Blog for our Power & Spark Challenge we are showcasing all things wintry floral!  Come and check out all the challenge details right here.  You could WIN a stamp set just for sharing your creation with us!

So for my wintry blooms, I chose to use the beautiful Joyful Lilies digital stamp set. This gorgeous set comes just like the image seen below or it comes wrapped around a beautiful cross for Easter plus a few sentiments.  I then used a birthday sentiment from the Party Time clear stamp set.
 Copic Markers: Y06, YG0000, YG000, YG01, YG03, YG17, B41, B23, BV00, R20, R21, R22, R27

I chose to create a card with a bumped up layer of the larger lily blooms.

I'm going to share this with the Seize the Birthday Challenge this week: "Anything Goes" this week.

Now come and let’s check out all the other Power Poppy creations today…

 Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have an amazing day!

Winter Thank Yous

So I’ve had a nice relaxing morning today… “Friends” playing on Netflix and having some fun using my new Catherine Pooler Designs inks.

I have a few thank you’s to send out from Christmas yet. I know… at least I’ll get them out.  Better late then never!

Today I made a single panel and cut it into two pieces to create two simple cards. I used the sweet snowflakes and dots from the “Snowy Sayings”, the stripes from “Yay Stripes” plus the pretty script sentiment from the “Butterfly Notes”.
I used the new CP inks; Fiesta Blue, Lime Rickey & Tiara.  I used them all on Catherine’s 100lb Premium White Cardstock.
