Power Poppy Duo


Hi Crafty Pals! I have been busily crafting this week and decided to play along with the current Power Poppy Challenges; Power & Spark "frame it up" challenge and a Colour Challenge. 


I had lots of fun, colouring my digital power poppy stamps with my Copics. This first card is for their frame it challenge...I coloured their Sunflower image with my Copic markers and paired it with a Verve Sentiment. 


The next card is for their new Colour Challenge! I kept my design simple and clean...something I like to do when creating cards for mailing to others. I used the Power Poppy GERBERA DAISIES DIGITAL STAMP SET

Aren't the colours so pretty together? I am always up for a Colour Challenge


I decided to colour the gerbera daisies in the fun, bright colours...I love it when florists have the blue daisies! Although my favourite gerberas are the burnt orange type!

Take Care & Sparkle {SSS Wednesday Challenge, CAS(E) this Sketch & Color Throwdown


Today I made a card for three different challenges; Simon Says Stamp {Sparkle}, CAS(E) this Sketch and the Color Throwdown. One of my cards was watercoloured and the other card, I used my Copic markers. I also inked up the Bamboo Rose stamp set again, from Altenew. 

       

I loved the sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch and used my new Tim Holtz stencil to add some neutral gray to my top card. The sparkle is the shiny sequins on my card. They sparkle in the light!

MOJO Monday Cards



I have been playing along with MOJO Monday the past two weeks and here are my cards! My first card uses the pretty Verve set called Lean on Me. Love colouring the flowers in this set and the sentiments stamp so well. 


Then I made a card using this week's sketch! I used the set called Bloom & Grow.  It's another favourite set of mine. I just love the flowers and the fun stamping you can do with this set. I used score lines to create the diagonal piece in the background.

The Flower Challenge and Meet "Maeley"

Hi Crafty Friends! I am back! It feels so good to get crafty once again after being off with pregnancy complications. Now that our sweet baby girl is here and my body is back to being my own again, I finally can craft. Of course, I am crafting between feedings and our new sleep schedule. LOL! It is an adjustment but worth it! Little Maeley is a doll and she is such a sweet baby. Corey and I are in love with her.

I found a new to me challenge called "The Flower Challenge". 

HELLO!!! 

This is one challenge I plan on playing with as much as I can because I LOVE floral stamps. This month's challenge is to CASE one of their designers...so I did! EEP! I cased the talented TaeEun and her stunning card!

 

I was inspired to watercolour and to create a simple, clean-lined card. Be sure to visit the challenge blog to see all the gorgeous inspiration there!


I used an Altenew set called "Bamboo Rose" that I absolutely love! I stamped the flowers in Archival ink and I did some masking to create a large focal point on one part of the card; inspired by TaeEun. Then I loosely watercoloured the flowers with my distress inks. Thank you for stopping by and for your support! I am off to craft some more. I hope you are crafting today too!
