Power Poppy - CASE-ing Stacy

Hello friends!

Has it really been almost two weeks since I posted last??  Goodness!!  Well, today I have a card to share for the monthly challenge at Power Poppy.  This month we are supposed to copy a card made by one of the Power Poppy "Bloomies".  I chose this card by Stacy, and here is my CASE...

I embossed the back layer, followed Stacy's layout, and added the trio of embellishments, but since my sentiment was included on my focal panel I opted for a little twine on the bottom strip instead of words.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Power Poppy Hues to Use - Blessings

Good morning!

I'm sharing a card today that I made with the Power Poppy Hues to Use... red, white and blue.  I printed the Hyacinth digi on watercolor paper along with the sentiment from the Tulips digi.  I colored the image with Staedtler Karat Watercolor pencils and a blender pen and then added some Stickles as well as a few dots with a fine tip marker.  The papers are from my stash... Bo Bunny, I think, and the pretty lacy border was made with a Recollections border punch from Michaels.

I'm also playing along with the Curtain Call challenge - as they are looking for red, white and blue as well!! :)

Have a joyful day!

Your Next Stamp Sketch Challenge - Sticky Note

Hi friends!

I had a nice little blogging break while my husband and I took a little vacation together to celebrate our 30th anniversary.  It was so nice to simply relax in a cabin in the woods for a bit and just spend time together.  I am so thankful for each day I get to spend with him, especially after his brain surgery a couple of years ago that could easily have taken his life or completely changed his personality.  God has been so good to us!!

Today I jumped back into my stamp room to make a clean and simple card for the current sketch challenge over at Your Next Stamp.  I used the sweet Mini Sticky Note set and a retired sentiment to make a card for a friend...

Don't you just love that little froggy?  He's colored with Spectrum Noir markers and a white gel pen.  So easy!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Your Next Stamp Sketch Challenge

Hello friends!

I'm sharing a card today with the Bugs & Kisses set from this month's release at Your Next Stamp.  I had all sorts of fun with my gumdrops on the ladybug's spots.

I followed the sketch challenge for my layout and colored the ladybug with Spectrum Noir markers.

I hope you'll play along!!

Your Next Stamp - June DT Dare

It's DT Dare day on the Your Next Stamp Blog and our theme is "Just for You".  I had so much fun making this little treat bag!!  I used the Treat Bag Topper Die for the base and colored up the bee from the new Bugs and Kisses set to decorate it.  Then, of course, I had to use Bit O Honey candy in the bag! :). A little ribbon and some Gumdrops and I have a cute little package to give away... "Just Bee-cause!"

Thanks so much for dropping by and for your sweet comments!
