Power & Spark: Hang Some Paper


Hello Everyone!!  It's the first Friday of the month and that means it's time for a new Power Poppy Power and Spark Challenge!!  This month our lovely hostess is Leslie who has challenged us to Hang Some Paper.....which means, dive into that pile of scraps (you KNOW what I'm talking about) and use 3 different patterned paper (or more) and make a card and play along with us!!  Don't forget, by playing along you can WIN a Power Poppy stamp set of your choice!!!  You can find all the deets on the Power Poppy Blog!

http://powerpoppy.blogspot.com.au/

I've used paper from the Spring Bloom paper pad and I had lots of scraps in there just waiting to be used!  I've taken three coordinating pieces to create a background panel layered on top of some Strawberry Slush, Baked Brown Sugar and white card.  Around this I've added a piece of mesh and topped it with green ribbon.  I've stamped the Flip Flops Best Day Ever in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (RV25, RV29, YR12, YR18, YG11, YG13, YG17) and cut these out with scissors.  I've created a 'beach towel' by rolling a piece of DP (a plainer piece from the same paper pad) and snipping the edge to create a fringe.  I've stamped the sentiment, also from Best Day Ever, in Memento Rich Cocoa and glued it to the front of the card.  I've popped the flip flops up on foam tape and finished with a few dew drops.

Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Strawberry Slush, Baked Brown Sugar, White, Kaisercraft Spring Bloom DP

Save the Date


Hello Everyone!  Today's card was a request from a friend of mine.  Next year is her parent's 50th Anniversary and she wanted a card to make them 'Save the Date' for a special week-end that they have planned!  She did have a request to have the date on the card, so I had to go digging into my retired JustRite stash for a font set.

Speaking of JustRite Papercraft, as many of you probably know by now, the owner of JustRite is closing the Consumer Website and that also means that the JustRite Design Team has been let go.  This has been very sad for our team as we have been a tight group personally as well as professionally - I love these girls!  I remember starting with JustRite in June 2009.....can you believe it, 6 years ago!  It has been a sad time for all of us, but now it is time for us to move in different direction, that includes our leader Kellie Fortin who now has new horizons to explore - I'm sure we'll find out more soon!

For this card I've used a base of white and layered with gold and more white embossed with an embossing folder.  Around this I've attached a piece of white ribbon.  I've then used Filigree Corner Dies by JustRite to cut the gold corners and embellished with Prima flowers and Foliage Flourish die cuts.  I've created the sentiment using the Save The Date sentiment from Summer Words (ret.) and the date made with a retired font set. It's been cut with Large Oval Nestabilities and matted with gold cut with Elegant Ovals and popped up on X-press It Foam Tape.

Stamps - Summer Words (ret) and Retired Font Set (JustRite)
Ink - Versafine Black
Paper - White, Gold
Accessories - JustRite Filigree Corner Dies, Spellbinders Foliage Flourish, Large Oval and Elegant Ovals, Prima Flowers, White Ribbon, X-press It Foam Tape

That's all from me today, thanks for visiting and hope you are inspired to stamp.

Hello Gorgeous!


Hello Everyone!  It's time for a little Power Poppy Friday and some of the Bloomies and I have some new Power Poppy inspiration for you!  Don't forget this month's Power Poppy Power and Spark Challenge is still on, but you only have until June 30th at 8pm USA EST!


So....what inspired me today?? Well, I just had to play with the new Best Day Ever stamp set and I just love this fun sentiment!  I started with a base of Marina Mist and layered with Baked Brown Sugar, cream and some FabScraps Under the Sea 2 DP.  Next I've added a couple of pieces of twine and then a panel of Baked Brown Sugar topped with more Under the Sea DP.  I've stamped the image from Best Day Ever in Memento Tuxedo Black (twice) onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copics.  I've cut one image out completely, the other I've coloured only the hat and cut it out and popped it up over the other.  I've framed the image with Marina Mist cut with Stately Circles and cream cut with Large Circle Nestabilities and this whole panel is also popped up on foam tape.  The sentiment has been stamped in black onto cream, cut into a notched tag and attached as shown.  To finish I've added a couple of clear dew drops.

Birthday Boy


Hello Everyone!  Last week, my son turned 10!!  He's a big Doctor Who fan and we are currently watching the 10th Doctor (aka the David Tennant years) so I found this super cool image online to use for his card.  I have to say I *loved* David Tennant as The Doctor, although I don't understand why my boy is not scared of some of the monsters - he's obviously braver than me!!  I'm a little late getting this card up since it was last week, but better late than never....obviously I need a TARDIS!  :)

I used a blue base that would match in with the TARDIS and layered with Chocolate Chip and some Attitude paper by Kasiercraft.  Across this I've added a strip and cut the '10' out of Chocolate Chip.  As I said, I found the image online and printed it out on X-press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copics (sorry didn't take note of all the colours I used this time, I was in a hurry since I'd spent so much time making the cake.....).  I've matted it with more blue and attached it as shown.

Stamps - Image found online
Ink - Printer
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Blue, Chocolate Chip, Kaisercraft Attitude DP
Accessories - Copics, MFT Dienamics

To really make his Doctor Who birthday extra special, I made him a TARDIS cake - it's a massive 16 x 6 inches and 3 inches high......a lot of cake and a lot of decorating!!  Anyway, he loved it and that was the main thing!  :)





Thanks for visiting and hope you are inspired to stamp and/or cake decorate!  :)
