Power and Spark Time!

Hello Everyone!!!  Are you ready for a brand new Power Poppy Power and Spark Challenge????   This month the hostess is yours truly and I decided to FRAME IT UP!!!  What does that mean??  Well, you could use a frame for your image on your card, you could create a Polaroid style frame or you could go all out and create a piece and put it in a frame for home decor!  Are those clogs starting to move around in your brain yet??  I can't wait to see what ideas you've got!!  :)

If that isn't enough to excite you, what if I told you that if folks play along in the Power & Spark and WIN, Marcy upped the ante when it comes to winnings. Now our lucky winner gets a $50 shopping spree to the Power Poppy Shop! Woo Hoo! Play along during May, link up your card on the Power Poppy Blog , make sure you mention and link back to the Power Poppy Challenge and you could win!!

I decided to create TWO cards to show you ideas on how to play this month's challenge!  If you look at both cards you'll notice that I used the exact same frame for both cards, just used them differently!

For the first card at the top of this post, I've used a base of Soft Sky and layered with white and some DP and then attached some lavender ribbon.  Next I've cut the frame out of X-press It Blending Card and then stamped the edges of the big bouquet from Burst of Kindness all around it and then coloured it with Copics!  The sentiment is also from Burst of Kindness and has been stamped with Versafine black, attached the the centre of the card and then popped the frame up on foam tape.

Stamps - Burst of Kindness (Power Poppy)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Soft Sky, White, DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Double Stitched Rectangles Dies, X-press It Foam Tape, Lavender Ribbon

For my second card, I've kept the frame plain, only stamping the sentiment from Artful Display in the corner.  The base is created of white and layered with pink card and some DP with two pieces of wide pink ribbon attached.  In the middle I've added a piece of DP that sort of looks like wall paper (humour me!!).  I've then stamped several plates from Artful Display onto X-press It Blending Card and then coloured with Copic markers.  I've then fussy cut each place to create my display!  Stamp the sentiment in the corner of the frame and pop up on foam tape, finishing with a big pink bow in the corner.

Stamps - Artful Display (Power Poppy)
Paper - White, X-press It Blending Card, Pink, DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa
Accessories - Copics, Double Stitched Rectangles, Pink Ribbon, Bow Easy, X-press It Foam Tape

Such gorgeous and creative samples for this challenge Kathy! The framed Burst of Kindness is a floral wonder. I love that thicker frame it gives you more room for the flowers to show, and the pretty plates are so creative done like that. The patterned paper really does give it the look of wallpaper. So sweet!

Wow, wow! Kathy, first of all, I LOVE this month's challenge, and your examples are exquisite! I love the first one using the Burst of Kindness and how beautifully it's colored (of are amazing), and the second is so elegant with the wall of plates against what looks like wallpaper with a elegant white frame...and then you add the lovely satin ribbon! Eek, I have no idea which I love better...hehe! They are both stunning! Hugs, sweet friend! xoxo

I love frames! Wowie, Kathy, your first card with the frame all stamped and colored is amazing! That works as either a card or home decor. So beautiful, and the quote is one worth keeping as a reminder. Your second card is totally adorable. It steals my heart completely. Love how you've framed and colored the plates. Sweet and special!
