Vintage Power Poppy

Hello and Happy Monday! 

I am a bit blue today as summer is officially over- it is back to work I go. Are the kids back to school where you are?  Well, I may be blue today, but I was red last week, working with this floral image from Power Poppy!
I have played a lot with my new stamps from Power Poppy.  This set is not a new set, although it is new to me.  It has been calling my name for a long time, I think because it is very nostalgic.  You see, my mother planted geraniums every summer when I was growing up.  Actually, I think she still does, LOL!  These images bring back memories of childhood. 

This image is from the Geraniums Take Two stamp set.  It is colored with Copics.  I used a Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle die from SugarPea Designs for the ecru panel. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week!

Power Poppy and Some Sweet Colors

Back again, and if you checked out my previous post, you will see how similar these two cards are.  And yet they look so different!
The image layout is identical, with the exception of an additional leaf in this card.  I added the leaf to balance the floral spray as I did not fussy cut along the floral edge on this card.

The color combo on this card, which I love, is from Power Poppy's blog and their Hues to Use Challenge.  These colors came from an adorable picture of Marcella's new puppy.  
Stamp Set used is Power Poppy's Peony Muse.  The image is colored with Copics.

I am also linking this up to Happy Little Stampers August CAS challenge, which is 'flowers'.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Finally, Back to Blogging

Hi Everyone!

My computer has been out for repair and that means no blogging for a while.  How I missed it!  We are so dependent on technology.  Personally, I hate that we have become so attached to it.
Anyway, back to blogging!  I have made several cards over the last week, many of which were for challenges that have since ended.  But this one is for the current Fusion challenge- love the sketch!

Here is the sketch~

 I just received my Power Poppy order and could not wait to stamp up this set.  I have another one, almost identical.  I used my MISTI for image placement.  I figured I may as well do two cards since the MISTI makes it so easy to stamp using masking.  On this card, to incorporate the sketch, I fussy cut along my floral edge.
I amd also linking up to the Power Poppy blog and their monthly challenge.  This month we are to combine two different sets.  I used Pure Prairie Spirit for the sentiment and  Peony Muse for the flowers.
Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week!

A Little Inspiration with the Challenge

Hello and Happy August! 

School is just around the corner; I hope everyone is enjoying their remaining lazy days of summer! 
Today's challenge at The Challenge is an inspiration photo.  I picked up on the colors in this photo.

Here is your inspiration~

There are lots of ways to interpret this photo; it is very busy! 
I used SugarPea Designs Banner dies, Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles dies, and Celebrate All Things Stamp Set.  The Balloon die is from Lawn Fawn. 
Check out the rest of the amazing inspiration from the team HERE and then link up your card! 
Thanks for stopping by,
