Introducing... Play Ball!

It’s Day 2 of our June sneak peeks for Power Poppy’s latest stamp sets.  Introducing “Play Ball!” our latest fabulous stamp set for all those sport enthusiasts out there!  Both girls and boy alike will love the wonderful detailed images of this fabulous baseball inspired collection.  Images included in this stamp are a pennant, a ball cap and a base with bats and balls and there’s even some stitching lines just like on your baseballs!  Super cute and perfect for Father’s Day!

I decided to go all out on my card today and share a fun and more 3 dimensional card creation… a box card!

Here is my open card.  This card opens up to reveal a card filled with lots of sports lovin’ fun!  All of it’s sport’s equipment just pops right out at ya!

On the back of the card is a space to write your message.

Each flap of the card is different and unique and is paired with the fun mini sports cards from my patterned papers…

And since this card is super, duper… it even folds flat to fit in my cute little custom made envelope…

I made a stitched belly band to hold the flaps closed within the envelope.  Don't you just love that stitching detail?!?

I hope you have enjoyed my project today!  Thanks for stopping by today!  Make sure to hop on to the next Bloom Brigade member and check out her fabulous creation today...

WOW, Ally, you have really knocked it out of the ballpark with this little creation. I love this stamp set. I really need something like this to add to my collection, as baseball has always been the chosen sport of the males of my family. I think my bonus money will be headed to Powerpoppy! LOL

Wow, wow, wow . . . take me out to the ball park! WOw . . . Liz is right, you've knocked it out of the ball park! If Marcy doesn't sell out with these designs, it'll be short of a miracle! This is just over-the-top Ally, so, so, adorable, I just love it!

Jerri Jimenez said...

I think I worded that wrong, LOL, what I meant to convey is that I'll be amazed if she doesn't sell out . . . the Graphic 45 papers are perfect for this set!

I have NO idea where to even start with my comment because your project blew my mind and left me speechless -- this is such an over the top creative project that... well... I give it a standing ovation. Plain and simple -- enough said! ;-)

Wow very cool project, love the vintage feel it has!

Leslie Miller said...

You know, Ally... I'm kinda tongue tied. Or should I say finger tied? What can I say? I'm agog. Fascinating! Incredible! Wonderful! Even the little things like the way you colored the bats... every detail is awesome. Just give me a while... it's not like I haven't been checking it out in the Yahoo gallery, but I need to look some more...

Stacy aka Twinshappy on SCS said...

Fantastic! Oh my word... This is awesome, love the fold and the belly band to close it. I agree the stitching is awesome.

Cindy Lawrence said...

This is INCREDIBLE, Ally! My jaw hit the FLOOR when I saw this! The details are fantastic...stitching, coloring, colors, ALL OF IT! Consider me blown away, my friend!
