Hello Everyone! Today I have another baby project for you! This time it's a Baby Boy Surprise Box Card using all the new goodies available at Divinity Designs this month!
I've used the Surprise Box Wide Dies to cut the blue card base and the layers from the same die set to cut some Baby Boy Paper. I've also cut the Baby Boy Paper using the Layering Hearts Dies and Balloons and Streamers Dies to create the accent pieces as shown. Next I've stamped, coloured and die cut the various images from Baby Clothesline, using two pieces of the blue card base cut with Sentiment Strip Dies. I've stamped the sentiment from Bless This Baby and die cut it also with the Sentiment Strip Die.

Hello Everyone! It's a brand new month, so that means it's time for another new release from Divinity Designs! This month it's all about BABIES! Oh my gosh, this release is just so adorable you'll love it!!
I've made two projects for you today! The first (above) is using the brand new Surprise Box Wide Dies, cutting some Blushing Bride card and then folding and gluing into place. These dies also come with the matching layers dies which I've used to cut the new Baby Girl Paper Pad papers as shown. I've then die cut the word 'Baby' from Bless this Baby Stamp/Die Duo and the hearts using Layering Hearts Dies all using the same Baby Girl Paper Pad and attached as shown. Finally I've stamped the clothesline, pegs and clothes from Baby Clothesline Stamp/Die Duo, onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured them with Copics and then die cut with the matching dies from the same set. To have the clothesline coming up from the inside divider, I've used the matching card and the new Sentiment Strips Dies! Now I'm sure that the Sentiment Strips are supposed to be used for small sentiments - but they also make PERFECT 'posts' for the clothesline!! ;-) I've also used the Bless this Baby stamps to stamp the 'Hello Sweet' sentiment and used the Sentiment Strips Dies to cut it out and then attached across the heart. I've been hanging out for small strip dies for little sentiments, so I'm over the moon about this new addition to my collection!
Stamps - Bless this Baby Stamp Die Duo, Baby Clothesline Stamp Die Duo (Divinity Designs)
Ink - Memento Rich Cocoa
Paper - DD Baby Girl Paper Pad, Blushing Bride, White, X-press It Blending Card
Accessories - DD Dies: Surprise Box Wide, Layering Hearts, Sentiment Strips; Glue
My second project is a Center Step Card! This time I've gone for the blues! I've cut the dusty blue card using Center Step Card Die and then used the Center Step Layers Dies to cut the papers from Baby Boy Paper Pad. I've used the same paper pad and Layering Hearts Dies to create the row of hearts across the bottom - popping them all up on foam tape. Next I've used Double Stitched Rectangles Dies to create the frame out of Baby Boy paper and popped this up on foam tape. I've cut the word 'Baby' from Bless This Baby out of Baby Boy paper and then another couple of times out of plain white card and glued them all together. I thought since the frame was popped up that this would give the diecut a little more strength. Before adding the word Baby, I've die cut the balloon out of the same paper using Balloons and Streamers Dies and attached as shown, then added the 'Baby' over the top. I've used Bless This Baby sentiment stamps to add the 'It's A Boy'.

Paper - DD Baby Boy Paper Pad, Dusty Blue Bazzill

Hello Everyone! It's Day 5 of the Power Poppy Enchanted Garden Release!! Today's set is a big bold floral to fit the entire front of your card! Also includes a couple of smaller images as well as sentiments that all fit in the centre of the floral frame. Let us introduce you to.... FLORIBUNDA!
Well this card is ALL about the image! I have a dark purple base, light purple base and some white card for the layers and then the image layer......almost a one layer card (well for me anyway! LOL!). I've stamped the image and sentiment from Floribunda in Icing on the Cake ink onto X-press It Blending Card and then coloured with Copics and some pencils and then sponged some green ink for the background. Trim to size, add a few enamel dots and you're done!

Hello Everyone! Today Power Poppy has another sneak peek for you called Summer Berries! This set has three images and an array of fabby sentiments!
I started by stamping the image from Summer Berries onto X-press It Blending Card and colouring it with Copics and pencils. I was trying for something a little different - I think I over thought the bird! Birds are a challenge for me, so I googled an Australian Red-Browed Finch as inspiration. I thought it would be interesting with it's red face and green wings......I think I need more work! In going with my 'let's try something different idea' - I've taken a stencil and blending brush and used Scattered Straw ink to create a bit of a background. I don't know......what do you think??
I've created the rest of the card with a red base, layer of brown, some Maja Designs paper and die cut the curve of the front with a border die. I've created the top by cutting some brown card with Scalloped Rectangles die and trimmed to size and topped with a red ribbon. Finally I've stamped the sentiment from Summer Berries added some enamel dots.

Hello Everyone! It's Day 3 of the sneak peeks at Power Poppy!! The latest addition to the Enchanted Garden collection is..... Strong and Beautiful. And beautiful it is!! With a stunning large floral arrangement complimented with two smaller accent pieces and a range of celebratory sentiments, this set is bound to be a go to!
So I decided to focus on the two smaller accent images and give them a moment to shine. I've die cut a rectangle of X-press It Blending Card with Double Stitched Rectangles Die and stamped the Hellebore (Lenten Rose) in Rich Cocoa ink and then masked it and stamped the fern frond all around it. I've also used the sentiment from Strong and Beautiful and I've then coloured this panel with Copics and then added a little pencil as well.
My card is created with a base of green, topped with cream and some Golden Grove paper. Around this is a piece of golden brown ribbon. I've added another piece of Golden Grove paper and then added the diecut 'brickwall' made with kraft card and Texture 4 Die. My coloured feature panel has been matted with kraft card and popped up on foam tape and I've finished with a few chocolate pearls.

Hello Everyone! It's Day 2 of the Enchanted Garden Power Poppy Release! Today we are showcasing another new clear stamp set called Woodland Carpet! This beautiful set includes two larger images and three smaller images along with a range of sentiments which would be suitable for either masculine or feminine cards.
I've created my card with a base of cream, layered with rust coloured card. I've diecut some light brown card with Divine Eloquence and glued this on top of these layers. Next I've stamped the image from Woodland Carpet in Rich Cocoa onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics. I've diecut the coloured image with Labels 28 and finished off the sky and soil while it was still in the die and then attached it to the top of the card. Finally I stamped the sentiment from Woodland Carpet onto white card die cut it and popped it up on foam tape.

Hello Everyone! Have I got news for you!! Power Poppy is releasing a new range of clear stamps called the Enchanted Garden Collection! There are FIVE beautiful new sets to make you gasp and grab your favourite colouring medium and get creating! Today we are sneak peeking Big Sexy Blooms which will be available (along with the other four sets) on July 1st.
Ever since I was little I've loved daisies and this bold background beauty of Gerbera Daisies speaks to my soul! I've stamped Big Sexy Blooms in Icing on the Cake ink onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with a whole lot of Copics. I decided to let the background shine and accent it with a punched border......which I had nearly completed when my FAVOURITE border punch broke. I honestly nearly cried. SIGH! So I started over with a different border punch to do the edge. I've then added a layer of white and then trimmed my Big Sexy Blooms layer to size and wrapped a piece of white ribbon around it. I've been a bit sneaky and added a sentiment from another new set - Strong and Beautiful - but you have to wait until Friday to hear all about that set!! :) I've stamped that also in Icing on the Cake ink, die cut with Pierced Circles and layered with Circles dies and popped it up on foam tape.
Stamps - Big Sexy Blooms, Strong and Beautiful (Power Poppy)
Ink - Catherine Pooler Icing on the Cake
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, White, Blue
Accesories - Divinity Designs Pierced Circles and Circles Dies, Blue Ribbon, Lattice Border Punch, X-press It Foam Tape
